Spy Function
« on: 29 Jun 2005, 19:09 »
Ladies and Gentlemen, I would like to introduce you to Mark Chairguy. All his life he has succeeded in one thing, failure. To some, it would be a meaningless life and although Mark doesn't know it, things are about to change...

One morning, while out for a walk to the local store, an FBI car cuts him off. People in suits jump out, grab him and throw him in the car. Blindfolded, he is taken to a remote location, and once he is unveiled, they realize this has been a case of mistaken identity. It turns out, the real person they were after is already dead. There is no time for the FBI to recover from this unfortunate accident, as they are in trouble, and could use the look-a-like, Mark, in their secret mission inwhich Mark is about to become deeply involved in...

What happens next, it's yours to find out.

This is a comedy game, altrough there are some serious(and dramatic) parts.(yeah, right.)

-640x400 resolution, 16 bit
-Sierra-style gui
-Lucasarts-style dialogs


Story: 10%
Graphic: 52,12%
Sounds/music: 70%
Everything: 50%
--------------------------



And here are few in-game screenshots:







UPDATE: Story is now 80% , graphics 60%, And puzzles 30%!

I really liked your storyline so far, but I went ahead and reworked it, and fixed some spelling mistakes, such as 'realised'. Hope you like it.

Suggestions...
If you can, I would suggest taking out the lens flare out of the second image.
I would also ask you to reconsider the last name of the main character. It's nice, but a bit too out of the ordinary.
And don't ever get discouraged by people not responding to a post. You go right ahead and release this game when its ready, and people will play it, I guarantee it.

Scumm, you do know that Realise is how it's written in non-American english, right?
The Tween Module now supports AGS 3.5.0!

Scummbuddy, I really like it. You realised(heheh) that I'm not English, so thnx a lot for helping me out. As for suggestions, I'll try to remove lens flare from that room, Be sure I will. Last name, hm, I tought about it, but nothing comes to my mind. I wanted it to be out of the ordinary, so sorry abou that.

Quick question: How can the story be done half of a percent, when the game is almost half done?

Sounds like a fun game to me, graphics are looking nice and cartoony.
On that lensflare: I would keep the glow (I like to use 'post-processing effects' in my game too), but I agree on the flare. The glow can work, but if the character walks infront of the window the flare should be blocked and hus disappear, so it's very hard to get that to look good.

Looking forward to seeing more.

It's the % of the story that's  here. In the game, story is much more complex, It's about 65% done.
So, here's the same room, after listening to yours advices:

If you ask me, it looks much better, so thanks. I'll be providing few more screenshots tomorrow, so be patient ;).

Shut up.  ;)

I'm usually good at knowing things like that, such as 'colour' but, my apologies.  :-X

I think you posted in the wrong thread, in the wrong forum.

If I'm mistaken, please let me know and I'll re-insert the images.

Could you please do something about images from "guy from Virje", because it doesn't belong here.
Thank you.
