I found AGS when I played Rob Blanc III and at the end it had a statement about Chris Jones making AGS and how Yahtzee said he loved him,lol, but I Yahooed AGS and AGS came up. I downloaded it and I loved it and I always get on the forums now. IT CHANGED MY LIFE MAN!

I found AGS because I got mad a runescape and then tried to make an adventure game so I went to some kind of website and there was a list of adventure game creation programs and i thought AGS was the best of the list.

I found AGS in 2002 while searching for Quest for Glory fan pages. I found Hero6 and AGDI first, then finding out AGDI used AGS I came here, lurked for 1 1/2 years and finally became a member last february.

I had been wanting to create an adventure game for a while but hadn't really known of any engines for it. After doing a search (ah Google...) stuff for AGS came up so I looked into it. I didn't download the software til I saw what the program could do (also known as I played Dark Ages and loved it :P) and since then I've had the software but only recently had the motivation to actually get down to learning it.

Well here's mine, ever since I was a wee lad, I've always wanted to make an adventure game (because I couldn't get enough of them) but back then there wasn't a lot of opportunity to do that, so I dropped the idea. 7 years later (long time huh?) I just replayed SQ4 and then I remembered how much I wanted to make one, so I went to google and searched “how to make an adventure game” and I looked through the links and found something promising, I clicked the link and voila! I'm here today making games.

Well, I found AGS while searching for free adventure games. Thought it'd be nice to make one myself. It was just about a month ago.

i found it because i was searching for SCUMM because i thought that it turned to freeware(i mean it was used to create games 10 years ago)
so i searched until i stumbled into a link to Amberfish Arts http://amberfisharts.com/
down right corner there were teams creating adventure games and i thought, why not theck them out, i had gone in like 3 or 4 teams until i got to the team, creating The Rise Of The Hidden Sun, there to the right there were steps to create an adventure game, so i checked them of, one of the step was, what engine to use to create the game, and two option came up, one of them was AGS but i don't remember what the other one was, he said that he used AGS (because it was easier) so i checked it out, dl 5 days a stranger, which i LOVED and went creating the game
i joined this forum when i needed help and there you got it

I was searching around on google for a way to make my own game. I had already given up on flash because it took dozens of hours to make one interaction. I found ags, down loaded it, and started messing around. I have made so much stuff the ags file is 150 megabytes now.

I found it on underdogs. I saw Garfield and red that it was created with AGS. I downloaded it (not Garfield, AGS).

aboute a year ago  I bought a magazine that showed you how to create games and on the dvd that came with it I found a bunch of game making programs including ags. Much later I remberred ags and downloaded the newest version. Im still creating my first game. Started a couple of weeks ago.

First I was browsing for old adventuregames and found AGS through a link-page on some adventuregame-engine site. But back then it was a dos-program and I just didn't get going. Then I forgot about AGS.

Later (in 2003) I think I went browsing for old adventuregames again and actually found AGS through a link-page on the same adventuregame-engine site I had visited some years before. Now AGS was a windowsprogram (version 2.5 I think) and I started making Frank the farmhand.

I found AGS last year when I was searching for a way to implement my game the Tanglewood...I was originally going to code the whole thing in C++, but I couldn't figure out how to do graphics, and then I had the vague memory of having seen some game creation tools in the past from places like dos games because I used to love to play dos games.

  I found AGS while I was searching the net for Indiana Jones fangames. I found a demo of some Indy game that had a 'read me ' or smth that said it was made with AGS.
  Since the game looked good, I downloaded AGS. I had tried to make a point-and-click adventure years ago on Amiga, and couldn't. But I started using AGS and I realized I could do it! I love it!

Well, to make a big story tiny, my dad had this old CD with mac games on it, and on this CD was a game called StoryMaker 1.0, which was like a program that made text adventures, except with graphics and sound, and you could click on stuff, almost like a graphical adventure game with a text parser. I eventually got frustrated with it, and I wanted something easier. So I went on Google, looking for an adventure game creator, and, well...

The rest is history.

Well I used to use adventure maker (when it didnt have the 3rd person plug-in) and I got frustrated that I couldnt have my charactor walk along the screen. I told my mate and he linked me to the AGS homepage... and thats my story.
