Bonus points if you implement all of the above and start the game by asking the player which environment he wants :)

Oooh old school text adventure, nice!
Bummer about the videos Slasher, I was curious about that. But I'm looking forward to an investigation type game.

I ended up mixing and matching again, but I finally have a final selection. It will be space related, because apparently all my games need to involve space or religion. (laugh) (Hmm at some point I really need to make a game that combines those topics).

I have my story and puzzles planned out. Now comes the fun part!

Welcome on-board HanaIndiana,

I'm sure you'll come up with something great....

Like the text idea Mandle...

Nice to see a few entries this month... I do hope everyone completes their game on time...

Meanwhile, my entry is forging ahead despite having lost a few days and having to reconstruct it after deciding that adding videos from many people was too much to expect in such a short space of time but hope that what I have is sufficient enough to at least get a few plays...

Game is based on entering keyword(s) into a search box. Certain words are keywords that will lead to progressing forward in the game. Keywords can be from what you hear from suspects when you talk to them relating to your keywords.  And just to help you there is a point in the game where you produce Hugo, your pet rat. Hugo can sniff out a big, fat lie....

Watch out you don't fall into a red herring ;)

Was it a ghost that murdered Dorothy Moore? You'll have to play and find out for yourself (laugh)

I prefer to think of it as "Iron Man Mode" version???? And also might have broken that game's source and not backed it up??? ':| ':| ':| (Also I thought I had an autosave system set up but thinking back it is very possible I also forgot to add a 'load' button)

Looking good Slasher!!!

I've done a lot of work on my game tonight and it's looking alright although the next step is still a mystery to me...

But if it wasn't I probably wouldn't want to keep working on it...

Forging on!

Hopefully I will meet the deadline...

Hi,

still two weeks to go and there are some forms of life in the making (laugh)

As like Mandle I thought I would try something different (to me at least)....


In my game (Finger of suspicion) you need to 'listen' carefully to what the characters are saying as this game is speech audio only....

Listen out for 'keywords' you can use to gain further statements from the suspects via your Investigative Search facility..

Examine the murder scene.

You cannot Save or Load... no cheating allowed (wrong)

You get to decide whom you are going to arrest and send to trial...

Will you send to trial the murderer of Dorothy Moore or send an innocent suspect?

There are 10 suspects to choose from. Thanks to all who lent their voices.

This is a Prototype-version that could lead to a fully blown, video game...with a new murder mystery...

Because this is a MAG's game it is not too long but it depends on your power of picking up keywords...

It is all gui based with just the mouse pointer.....

Game progress: 80%

My game now officially rocks! (I added some music)

By the way, what is the method to change the main game name again?

Mine is still set to something stupid.

Something about renaming the game folder and then doing some other thing?
