The Amulet of Monkey Island
« on: 08 Jul 2005, 03:39 »
Hi Guys!

Metamorfo Entertainment is developing his more ambitious project, called THE AMULET OF MONKEY ISLAND (El Amuleto de Monkey Island) to "practice" for his future projects (original ideas).
It will be a multilingual game, a "serious" continuation that promises to finish of once the saga, clarifying all the situations that remained incomplete, and revealing finally OUR real secret of Monkey Island.

Take a look:

http://www.metamorfo.cjb.com/ Our website
http://usuarios.lycos.es/metamorfoe/phpBB2/index.php/ Our forums

Some conceptual art:








In-game Screenshot:


- High quality tracks of music and ambientation in audio format in every scene
- "Cartoon" backgrounds totally interactives.
- 3D animations like Runaway.
- Interface Poin't and Click, without verbs.
- Fully animated cutscenes.
- A future talkie-version.
- AND A LOT OF REGGAE!  :D

Please comment about our project! ;)

PD: More screenshots, art and music in the website.

Your website isn't in English and might be difficult for people to navigate.

I was able to find the screenshots and it does look like you've got better ones to post than the ones you did post!

Please post (update the first post) with 1 more "in-game" screenshot (as the rules require).

Also tell us all a little something about the game; What's the plot?  Who're the characters?  When does it take place? (also, just update the first post)

Stuff like that.

See the FORUM RULES and the EXAMPLE THREAD for ideas!

Thanks!

Why do some many people try to make fan-sequels or something?
They're all inevitably worse than the original.

Just a note: This is personal opinion, of course, but I think "The Amulet of Monkey Island" would be a better English name than "The Charm of Monkey Island".  "Charm" has other meanings in English as well, and the one you want isn't the one that comes most immediately to mind--to me, at least.  Until I read the Spanish title, I interpreted the "Charm" in the English title to mean encanto rather than amuleto.

Well, I must say, as a group making a fan game, you're so far above 90% of the other groups. The fact that there are multiple ingame screenshots puts you there.

I'll play it when it comes out and decide whether I like it then, but for now I'm defintely interested.
I make music.

Wow, this looks beautiful! If you need help proof-reading or anything (BETA-testing etc.) just PM me.

Hope this turns out to be quality on the inside, because it sure looks good on the outside!

To be honest with you, you're 'above' most other fan games. At least you've created original art for it. The type of games I'm on about just steal the original art, put the characters in HILARIOUS* situations, give them shite dialouge and generally ruin all my childhood memories of monkey island.

Seriously though, you seem to have a dedicated team. Let's hope this game is a GOOD GAME with a monkey island setting, shall we? Good luck guys, I do actually look forward to playing it. Like those two professional looking indy sequels. I'm looking forward to those as well :)

Also, I'll help proof read any text if you need any help. Though, I can't really speak Spanish too well :/

*that was scathing sarcasm for the non-english readers out there.

Of course, that's our policy.
Use original graphs 100%, with a serious script that follows the thread of the saga, without making exaggerated parodies and nothing of that type of things.

We promise that the game will be Monkey Island in its PURE state  ;)

If you're still looking for a musician, feel free to PM.  I really only work with midi, though.  So I can't help you if you're looking for mp3s.

Is this being made using AGS? I thought I read in another forum that they were using Wintermute?  ??? Not that I'm trying to be awkward o anything coz it sure does look good  and I can't wait to get my hands on it ;D

Re: The Amulet of Monkey Island

IT WAS GOING to be developed in AGS, in fact our first beta is developed in AGS.
Now we're using WME...  :=

Good choice, Wintermute is really the best engine for games at higher resolutions, more features too.

If that's so... then is there any sense in keeping this thread here? I mean this forum is for AGS games only. :-\

AGS isnt just for AGS developed games, its a retro - gaming community otherwise we wouldnt have comic contests, popular threads such as 'which state are you from' and they dont seriously JUST make AGS games at brittens and mittens so this thread is fine. Besides i think lots of people on ags would love to see the progress of a game at the same qaulity of th origanals.

EDIT: Never Mind, I have been proved otherwise  :P

NO.

This board is clearly titled "AGS Games in Production". This is an AGS board, and a general adventure board there besides. But this isn't a general adventure related board in itself.
I used to make games but then I took an IRC in the knee.

agreed, if it's not AGS, than it's useless. This thread should be closed.

I agree too!
This title has nothing more to do with AGS anymore.
And it doesn't matter, if this game is specially a retro game or not.

I think I should make this a sticky for "what NOT to do" ...

Since this is no longer an AGS game, locky lock locky.
