Hello everybody, I'm a new member from Italy!
I have been using  Rpgmaker  for a long time to improve my making passion, but recently I've decide to start to use  AGS.
But now, I'll try to talk about my project!

GAMEPLAY

The gameplay features are  the classical Lucasarts game, so a point and click games.
I use the 9-verb script for the GUI (with a little changes by me).
In the style of Maniac Mansion, the player are able to change  character in every moment using a simple icon below the GUI (Not visible in the screenshot).

STORY

The story tells about two characters : Don and Bastian.

Don is a clown, Bastian a wizard.
The story begins when Bastian, accidentally forgets various items for his magic show. When he comes back home, he sees a group of thieves whose aim is to search a specific object, possesed by Bastian in a secret strongbox. Luckily, they don't find anything . When Bastian remains alone, he picks up the object and he runs in a library to find more information about it.

A similar story happens to Don.
Summarizing, the wanted items are divided in three parts which, putting them together  they displays a mystic power. Bastian have one, Don have another one and the thieves have the last one.

(You can see the object at the center in the Title screen :) )

This is it the other side of the main room of Bastian's house. I wanna add a carpet to the floor, but naturally first I have to clear the walls.

The rules require two different screenshots.

Yeah... you posted in the GiP too early (if you don't have two completed in-game shots).  I am, however, going to let it slide.

Well, these screenshots are very impressive! Your plot has a lot of tension too. I'm curious about playing this game and I'd love to see more screenshots of development. Good luck with the completion of your game.

Hello everybody!
I'm not die!
This month I've been very busy, so the game devolopment slowed down. But now it's time to recuperate the loss time! (laugh)
I'm searching for a good solution about the intro, and the istant result gives to me a lot of hopes for the final version. Now, I present to you the near-final version.
Enjoy!
