Yes, after literally seconds* of procrastination, I have come up with a sink-or-swim kind of game GUI. But will it hold up against your comments? And has it been done before on AGS?
Heres a brief explanation of the interface: It combines the flexibility of the Text Parser, and the simplicity of the Point and Click... without word guessing or limited choices. You simply click on a button to fill the Text Box with the Verb, and then on a inventory item and/or an object!
Then by pressing enter, the game parses it. Or you could just type it all in! Its up to you.
Will it sell**? Will it fail? Comments welcome, as always.
*Underestimates may occur during transit.
** Metaphorically speaking, of course.
