A Forthcoming Attraction
« on: 08 Jan 2005, 10:27 »
Hey everyone,
Just wanted to talk about this game I'm making with Zor.
I'm fairliy new to AGS so this is gonna be my first proper game.
Okay... So...
It's set in the time just after Napoleon was exiled. Our hero, whatever his name is, is falsley accused of aiding the banished Napoleon and is sent to this real awful prison to rot. Naturally, the player must escape. Not only the prison, but the island as well. It's gonna be a fairly short game but with some good puzzles.
What do you guys think?
Can anyone think of a cool name?

While escaping isn't something new, the setting certainly is. Sounds good. For the title, I'd recommend something French like "L'intrigue", only better... ;)

Oh, and you should have read the FORUM RULES! :P

Quote from: FORUM RULES
1) Your game must actually be 'in production'.
This means you've actually begun working on it.  Don't post anything about an idea you have for a game.  That belongs in Adventure Related Talk & Chat or the Critics Lounge.

2) A minimum of two (in-game) screenshots must be available.

(...)

5) The subject line must be the title of your game.

Good story, it sound like the Count of Montecristo to me.

Give us one or two screenies!

Kay, sorry guys.
Like I said, fairly new.  ???
Gonna read over the rules and I'll post here when I sort it all out.
Thanks.
(Oh yeah, it is a bit like The Count of Monte Cristo isn't it?)

Sounds good to me.  Let me know when that happens.
