Adventure Game Longplays (mostly AGS)
« on: 22 Aug 2017, 12:50 »

So I longplay AGS games a lot recently. For the newer games I just post in the according game thread, for older games I won't dig up the thread for the game but to showcase some of these games and longplays and give you and idea of what to play next I will update this thread every now and then, so if you don't even feel a tiny bit considering subscribing to my youtube channel, just log into this thread. Feel free to add your own AGS longplays :D

check out the youtube channel, watch the longplays, like, subscribe, leave some comments, play some games.


iD
by Matt Frith



Unannounced on the AGS Forums by now iD tells the story of a cyborg just waking up or rather being booted the first time and getting the order to restart a run down facility to produce even more cyborg robots.
Some tricky and some easy puzzles set in the beautiful sideview pixel art backgrounds make the game a real pleasure to play. fluid and nice to look at animations and an easy but too short soundtrack give the final touches to the game you should instatly play and not watch here!




^_^
by 304



^_^ is a funny game taking place in only once screen with way more to do than you think. Funny and weirdo characters you meet along the way to bring back the witch's hair. Varied puzzles and a 5 track soundtrack for one screen make this game a very amusing and relaxing experience in the wonderfully whacky wonderland of Ben Chandler, known from Technobabylon, Shardlight, the later Blackwell games and also ! ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KWCgh901nMU )




Fridge Follies
by Baron and Ponch


Fridge Follies is a funny little comedy game about the left over food in the fridge wanting some attention. Of course they decide they have to gain the attention of the family outside the fridge by stinking. This could also be the backbone story of a blockbuster movie, you know!
The writing and also the voice acting is spot on funny (especially considering the voice acting was all done by one person (Baron)). The lovely painted backgrounds and little animations here and there add a lot to the smelly atmosphere of the almost rotten foodsies. The puzzles are not demanding at all, just have fun playing this game and reading and hearing the weird lines from the funny characters. Playtime really is less than 10 minutes, I just did let all the voiceacting lines run, you could have clicked them away when you read faster when you play yourself. Go do it!



to be continued...

Thanks for the plug for Fridge Follies. I can't wait for those royalties checks to start rolling in! :cheesy:

Yeah, I can't wait for these monies too. Once we are all filthy rich make sure to give Baron his part, his voiceacting in Fridge Follies is hilarious :)

So I made some more longplays, here are some, more on the best youtube channel there is.
Just look at that, I even made a banner image you can click:


But who care about logos when there are Point and Click longplays to watch and hopefully new games to discover... here they are:
(all download links in the video description on youtube or just search the ags games database (except for theropods...))

Toffee Trouble in Creamville





Toffee Trouble in Creamville follows the footsteps of clumsy Toffee and how she substitues her father, the mayor of Creamville and everything goes wrong. Cute characters, funny dialogs and the bittersweet story about the sugary catastrophy make you want to find out more and help the sweet people of Creamyville.
Watch your calory count after playing this game and don't get diabetes while watching this longplay.



Theropods



Theropods was made for the Adventure Jam 2015 and takes you back to ancient times of wild tribes and dinosaurs. Not so heave on a huge story, the action packed game is about rescuing your friend who barely survived a dinosaur attack. Crisp and beautiful pixelart and a fitting soundtrack engage you to play through the game. The puzzles are doable, some more in game hints about what is supposed to happen would be nice, but the full game is still in development.
This game was made in flash and not AGS but it think is is fun and interesting no matter what!



Beacon



Beacon (not bacon) is a very very short game with stunning steampunk artwork by Victor Pflug, the creator of Primordia (released by Wadjet Eye Games). Great atmospheric sounds and a tense setting make Beacon a fun game to explore, play it now or watch the Longplay and get spoiled...



Second Place is for Losers



Second Place is for Losers is not quite a point and click adventure game but a different take on a racing game made in a point and click engine (AGS) by AprilSkies  / Ape Marina (who also made Tales). You play the one sperm that will become you and you have to beat the other sperms on the way to the egg inside your woman's body. There is no second chance, second place is for losers! Somebody just had to make this game!
The game has 2 difficulties, this longplay shows easy mode first, then a an almost done but still failed hard mode attempt ( #1:44 ) and finally a completed run on hard mode ( #2:52 ). This took a while but I did cut all the other failed attempts, you can try yourself to see how hard it is :)

I will be subscribing to your channel and watching all these for starters! And then hopefully many more in the future!

I love watching Let's Plays of adventure games, especially ones I have already played myself!

Might I suggest Donald Dowell or Tales or Chronicle Of Innsmouth for a longer playthrough series?

You've perhaps played them already and a blind Let's Play is always better where adventure games are concerned.

But anyways, best of luck and I'll be a subscriber soon!

thanks Mandle. Sadly I have to tell you (as the channel description says) I usually don't comment or talk at all over the games (lets play), I rather let the game speak for itself, let it unfold its atmosphere and I just play the game to tell the story hopefully the way the author intended (longplay). Though I should have recorded my audio and curses on the sperm racer game, this was fun and no adventure game, but I don't even have a good mic :P

have fun with the videos, I hope I'll make a lot more whenever I have time. I'm looking forward to your elaborate comments on the videos as youtube viewers are very silent at the moment and you know some of the games better than the average youtuber ;)

Awww, that's a shame that you don't do commentary as that's really what I want from watching Let's Plays otherwise I would just play the game myself.

I would have LOVED to hear your swearing on Andrea's sperm game :(

Maybe don't worry about the quality of your mic and just get your voice out there?

Like Mandle, I only watch these let play for the commentaries, as it's fun (but I'll pass on those that only know how to swear, curse and shout too loud (laugh) ). I enjoy listening to what the "player" is thinking. And I only watch Let's Play for games I either have played already or don't intend to ever play (as I really don't watch spoilers).
Can't remember if it's possible to do in youtube (besides having two videos) but maybe you could do both? Silent with just original sound and with commentary?
Not sure if it would be too complicated setup though... one prog just recording the game, and then another prog just recording the mic, maybe?

Yay! A Toffee longplay!

I think this kind of video is great when you feel like playing an adventure game but can't do it at the moment because you don't have a computer available where you can run a game, like sitting on a train or slacking off at work :P

Some more months have passed and some more Adventure game longplays have been recorded



Jump to the best youtube channel with the link above and click that subscribe button and/or leave some thumbs up or if one of the vids sucks gimme the thumb down (but you won't need that thumb down!)



Educating Adventures of Girl & Rabbit

You play the innocent girl in a bright and fantastic world that meets the bitter and sarcastic rabbit called bunny the rabbit. She wants to call him rainbow but he smacks her for it. Prepare for lots of smacking until your learn your lessons about life one way or the other. No aspect of modern dysfunctional life is left out and no eye stays dry with all this upfront mayhem! A really educational game! Enjoy!







Sisyphus Reborn
Sisyphus Reborn takes you on a journey to a surreal lone land where everyone is digging and noone questions the endless uselessness of being and digging. You enter the voids of this vast land and try to make sense of all the nicely woven in philosophical concepts and ideas.
The land of Sisyphus reborn might be what the afterlife is like, and everyone is digging their own grave for all eternity. Gladly the game is completely in black and white to get that desparate feeling of emptyness across!
The great soundtrack (Like the whole game also by Edwin Montgomery) adds all so more to the experience that is Sisyphus Reborn.

At #32:52 you can peek into what the Collector's Edition offers.






Patchwork

If you haven't played this, play it now, don't get spoiled by the video!

Patchwork tells the Story of 2 different people from 2 very different worlds getting together and living through an exciting adventure in a fantasy world. The beautiful backgrounds and fluid animations by Ivan Ulyanov, who also paints the character portraits for various Wadjet Eye Games, work really well at pulling you into the story and the strange but somehow familiar world of Lin and her funny fellow people.
The 2 playable characters could interacts more or solve some tricky puzzle together but the chracter switch works and you should play both characters immediately, go play that game!






Also I started longplaying
LIMBO
follow the progress of this when I upload another part of the longplay...
this not your usual pnc adventure but it is filled with great puzzles

I'm currently playing Limbo on the xbox :)
But it's weird that one has to die (most of the time) to learn what do next... (roll)

Limbo is a really awesome game, I love every second of it! Maybe it is a comparison to life in general, sometimes learning hurts and you have to give sacrifices to find out what is really going on ;)

I just finished it. :-D Loved it, though the end was a bit disapointing, as I never actually figured out what was going on... :-[

I hope that you haven't had to die to figure out life... (wtf)

Unfortunately I had to use the walkthrough 3 times. :-[ First time I had actually tired (and failed) the solution, and thought it didn't work, the 2nd time I knew what I needed but couldn't find it and the last time I just got tired of dying... I think this one I might have solved if I had given it a bit more time, as I had actually thought the solution, but didn't got to try it.

I stumbled across your playthrough of my game "The Adventures Of The Black Hand Gang" on youtube yesterday and just wanted to say thanks for the honour and thanks for playing through the whole book!

I saw you getting frustrated with the broken clock answer at one point and just wanted to tell you

Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
the answer "grandfather" clock that you tried first was fine but you mistyped it as "gradfather"

Limbo was fun. If anyone liked Limbo, I suggest you play 'Inside'

I really enjoyed it, and the ending is pretty epic and original. I still daydream every now and then about the ending. I believe its from the makers of Limbo.

@Mandle:
The book is great and I am very thankful you made this game! Playing it brought back many good memories. And it is just the perfect book for an adventure game.
Hehe, mistyping is mean, especially when you record the gameplay and want to play it good ;) Indeed I didn't notice I mistyped and then skipped it iirc...

@NickyNyce:
I have inside already and played the demo already and it is really cool. I haven't come around to complete it though. No idea if I record the gameplay after all. The limbo videos seem to be not that interesting for my viewers, almost no views on the videos, and cutting these vids also takes time. But in the end, when I really like inside, I'll probably record it anyways, just to have it on my channel :)

@TheFrighther:
Thanks :D

@lorenzo;
Listen to what cat said ;)




I recorded some more longplays since my last video post in this thread. I'll pick some and post some more tomorrow :)

Thanks all for the good words on the game.

I made it just after I discovered AGS so it is a bit rough around the edges, having no audio or fancy bits. I remember I was rushing to get it finished at 3AM or so a few hours before I had to leave for the airport for a trip back to Australia.

I decided to leave it as it is though so if anyone wants to play it with music then just put on your own selection while playing like you would when reading a book in real life. I prefer silence when I'm reading though.

and here are some more AGS Game Longplays of Game you might not even have heard of and should play :)



Hjarta ~ The Cosmonaut

Hjarta draws you into a nicely drawn world featuring 3 Episodes, each will have it's own longplay video on this channel.
This Episode features "The Cosmonaut" and his quest through space to find a mysterious orb and the love of his life. Help him solve some interesting and some mean puzzles to complete his quest.


bird

This is a funny weird game with quite some optical Illusions included and also Eadweard Muybridge's galopping horse in once scene and bending and warping lines and forms in another.



The Black Hand Gang

The Black Hand Gang is a well known children's book by H.J. Press about a gang of young detectives that catch all kind of bad guys. The reader is invited to find the clues and solve the mystery with the gang.
Mandle turned this into a game. I loved the book as a kid and he did too and so will you and your kids love the stories and riddles and this new interactive format for the book.
Also you are invited to read and play along with me, I let every page stay for 10-15 seconds, so you can pause the video, read the text, solve the question in the bottom left and then continue. Enjoy! :)
Or even better, go play the game and take this video as a recommendation and not as a guide. There is no way to die in the game, it's like reading and turning a page. And you can read all 4 episodes called "The Mysterious House", "The Treasure in Breezy Lake", "The Smuggler's Tunnel" and "A Theft at the Zoo".


Chance of the Dead

Chance of the Dead is a cute and very wordy game about a cheerleader that is brought back to life from her way too soon death and she gets a second chance. It all ends in a bake off contest and you solve some puzzles while the entertaining and a bit too wordy story keeps you on track. Some funny SFX and a fitting soundtrack make it a game you should be playing now and not watching the longplay and getting spoiled. Find the download link below...
