The Rumpus Room / Re: What grinds my gears!

Fun fact, that whole thing started as a joke. I remember convincing one of my sister's friends into believing that I believed the world was flat, a good ten years or so before this whole flat-earther thing took off.
The joke was originally meant to be there as a way to poke fun of religion, and how absurd that it is to believe in that, and how easy it is to make an argument for anything. It was the original version of the flying spaghetti monster in a way. But unfortunately very few people understood the joke, and you ended up with everyone believing that these people claiming the world was flat, actually believed the world was flat. Then you got people who decided to join in on the craze, since they thought that if other people thought the world was flat, then they should also believe the world is flat.

It's a shame really.  :~(

Still, if you ever encounter a flat-earther, don't try to convince them that the world is round. They know (unless they're mentally handicapped). Instead try to convince them that the world is double sided, and that there's a massive conspiracy to cover it up.  (laugh)

That is beautiful!

I think I know about the tool you're talking about, the one that's part of SCI companion. But this looks like it'll be so much better!

I wish I could help with improving it, but I honestly wouldn't even know where to begin.
Good luck though.

I know I probably won't make it in time as I'll be very busy the next two weeks, but just to be sure, it's okay to use resources downloaded from here, right?
Of course. All publicly available assets can be used.  (nod)


Private Detective is a procedurally generated murder mystery game, where you must solve randomly generated crimes by finding leads, questioning suspects, and gathering evidence from the crime scene to compare with samples found in the homes of the suspects. It plays a lot like an adventure game, but with a lot more deduction and a lot less inventory object puzzles.

Somewhere in Maine, five teenagers decided to spend the night at a farm. To goof off and have fun, as teenagers do. But little do they know that they're being watched by an evil entity intent on doing them harm.

Soon they find themselves being killed off, one by one. Will any of them survive?

Black Friday is a homage to slasher movies in the form of a point and click adventure game.

Well, good luck with your future endeavours Peder. And thanks so very much for what you've done for the AGS community up to this point.
A decade for the AGS Archives alone, is quite a feat.

I hope to see you on the forums again one day. But if that doesn't happen. Goodbye!  :-D

I'm glad my chosen topic has sparked up so much discussion and ideas.
For a while there, I was worried that my topic was a bit too open-ended.

I haven't checked on this thread for a while, but when I do, I see you're in a legal battle.   :shocked:

I'd ask what's going on, but I think I already do, since I remember the Star Trek debacle. I just can't believe it's escalated this much.
Good luck AnasAbdin. I can't imagine how horrible this must be making you feel, but I know you can win.  :-D

As someone who helped with the game, I'm quite pleased with how I'm credited.
I'm in the 'see people who made this' section, and my name is in the game, so I'm happy.
As far as I'm concerned, Nr. 2698 deserves to be the only one in the "game author" field, because it was mostly his game. He organized everything, he came up with the premise, he chose what ideas did and didn't make it into the game.
If I was in his position, I would've done things exactly the same. (Well, I probably would've mentioned everyone who worked on the game on the Itch.io page, but that's besides the point.)

But that's just my thoughts on the matter. Babar might think differently.

So, it's just 2 of any famous characters: Bugs bunny meets Frankenstein,   Barney Rubble meets Dr Jekyll,  Sherlock Holmes meets Agather Christie.....

Is this correct?
If doesn't just have to be famous characters.
You could have your "The Rat Pack" crossover with Cat's "Cornelius Cat", assuming you got her permission.
You could even have more than two if you wanted do be a bit more ambitious. Or even crossover the settings instead of the characters (assuming the settings are recognizable enough).

I think TheFrighther's joke perfectly sums up the general idea.  :-D

Happy new Year!  :-D

Goodbye 2018. You were a pretty decent year.
And for everyone who disagrees, look towards 2016. Now THAT was a horrible year.  >:(

What do you get when you cross a snowman with a crocodile? Frostbite!
That was actually my Christmas cracker joke this year.
I said that it appeared in every pack of Christmas crackers.  (laugh)

Personally, with how bad Christmas cracker jokes are, I kind of wish they'd go all the way and make them anti-jokes. It would actually make them funnier in my opinion, because you wouldn't expect it.
What do you get when you cross a snowman with a crocodile? A snow crocodile!
How do you stop a skunk from smelling? Spray it with perfume!

Hint: the game name starts with a " T "
Is the game simply called "T"?  :-\
I have to ask, just in case.  (laugh)

I know absolutely no christmas cracker joke, please tell a christmas cracker joke TMA, then I can at least pretend to find it funny ;)
What do you get when you cross a snowman with a crocodile? Frostbite!
I think I encounter that one every year. Or at least a similar variant. Sometimes it's a vampire.

Christmas crackers are mostly just very bad puns, atleast in my experience. Here's an example:

What does Santa suffer from if he gets stuck in a chimney? Claustrophobia!

That is an awesome joke!
It really is.  (laugh) I've never heard that one before.

Congrats Danvzare! Lovely game! I hope you choose an interesting theme for january  (nod)
Thank you!  :-D

Having won this contest at this time, almost feels like a Christmas present. Especially since this is the first contest I've won first place on in the AGS forums.
Thanks everyone who voted for Black Friday.  :-D

Maybe some of you can give me some plausible explanations!
Well I know that some people can actually become ashamed of their own past work. And would prefer it to be forgotten than translated and remembered.

Then of course there are those that have an "artistic vision" that can not be deviated from. It's why some people don't like the HQX filters on AGS. They believe it'll compromise their artistic vision. And handing off the source code is just inviting someone to come in and ruin your artistic vision.

Finally there are people who are just plain old paranoid. Paranoid about what? About you stealing what they made and claiming it as your own! Why? Because they're paranoid, that's why!

To those who celebrate Christmas, Merry Christmas! (Even though it's Christmas Eve where I am.)
To those who don't celebrate Christmas. Happy Holidays!
To those who don't celebrate holidays. Have a nice day!  :-D

Here's how you get around those annoying things.
Just keep pressing an invalid number. Eventually you'll be put through to a real person.

This is especially useful for when the dialog tree for those pre-recorded answerphone messages ends with "Get lost and go online." Which I've had.

It never ceases to amaze me, the amount of talent most of the people have on this forum.
