AGS AWARDS: BACKSTAGE PASS

Ever wonder what the backstage of the AGS Awards Theater looks like, or what dangers might lurk there in the wings?

Join a well-known and much-loved character on his trek from floor to stage
in this game I made today in under 15 hours start to finish,
just in time for the 2015 AGS Awards Test...

A big thanks to all characters who participated in this game.

Nice idea - gave me some good laughs 

Finally I understand why all people are teleported onto the stage instead of simply walk there.

I thought it rocks! ;)
But, it's a headache on the making...
There are those who believe that life here began out there...

Cheers guys!!!

A bit of trivia: That's actually AprilSkies front and center as Stan. The audience part of the picture is from last year's ceremony (it's the only one I could find on google with an audience, hence the slightly conflicting resolutions which made walkbehind drawing a real chore) and coincidentally the screenshot mentions "Mandle has entered" in the text but my character is not visible yet. So I guess I'm kinda "backstage" :-D

Anyone else recognise themself in the audience? I think the glowing Gabriel Knight on the far left is Radiant, just because I remember him on stage every 5 seconds or so :P

Oh, and I fixed a slight glitch and uploaded a new version. Nothing major, just something that annoyed me that I hadn't spotted.

I had no idea what sort of drama and excitement went on behind the scenes at the awards show! I was expecting more nip slips, to be honest. :=

I especially liked how it built up to the exciting climax, I was on the edge of my seat for 30sec at least!
Well done.
