They're ready! 5 new games from AGS developers are available from Screen 7. It's our first product, our first commercial venture - and the aim is to help the developers earn from their work, not us. Show your support for their creative skills and buy the batch. We'll also make sure a worthy charity gets a donation if we reach certain targets.
Please remember you'll need DirectX 9
to play, Windows XP, Vista or 7, and a stable internet connection to get the download that's roughly 280mb. It requires about 1.8gb HD space to install the games.
Volume 1 has five games inside:BARELY FLOATING
A traditional point & click adventure by Stemshock Interactive (led by AJA). Playing time is about 2 to 3 hours.
Somewhere along the east coast of Africa, pirates have attacked a luxury yacht! They have taken a few seemingly wealthy passengers as their hostages, a family and an old man, hoping to collect a hefty ransom for each of them. When the hostage negotiations go awry, the rescue duties land on the weak shoulders of an unlikely hero. Little does he know that the ship's crew, that stands in his way, is composed of some very weird and silly individuals.
