bob's busking nightmare
« on: 14 Dec 2005, 10:33 »
this is a beta version of a game about busking made with AGS, a cool free game making system. This is just a beta version for those who are interested by ags. It is by no means finished but some of the backgrounds used may be recognised by those who have busked in Antwerpen, namely the cathederal, groenplaats and the buskers parking by the Scheldd river!

The plot?
not sure yet but its a game more than an adventure, you got to busk to buy busking tools ans eventually get out of town, but the cops are not too nice to buskers so the do hinder progress,
coming soon is the possibility to get arrested and thrown in jail, eating should be a problem and you should pay for everything as for the moment you dont pay for anything.the biggest problem i've found is having the time and patience to do the characters so I borrowed a few whilst I draw some of my own





you'll find it here

Darth is probably sleeping now, which will give you a few hours to find two in-game backgrounds and a plot to post ;)

That AGS thing sure sounds like fun  :=

I have edited all your posts into one ... please review the rules (in all boards) before posting!

Perhaps you could explain, to those of who don't know, exactly what "busking" is?  Contextually speaking and I can sort of gather an idea, but an explanation would help!

Busking - playing an instrument/s without permission in a public area, with hopes of raising cash and even self promotion. Usually broke people do it.

That right, yes?

Interesting premise! Very original!

Interesting to see Mika returned to the city she was drawn in!
Personally I didn't see any buskers around the cathedral, just a man telling his two children to urinate on it. And no-one batted an eyelid. Then again, urinating in public seems to be a national pasttime.
Certainly an interesting idea for a game.

Here's the downloads page for those (like me) who had trouble finding it.

Although I don't think I'm going to trust a download for "Bob's Busking Nightmare" called aaa.exe.
Still waiting for Purity of the Surf II
