Mars Mining Inc. needs an old ice forge back up and running on the Moon Phobos.
Will Sallae complete it in time? Will she get paid overtime? Will she die in the process?
If like me, you like pushing buttons, you just might like this game. :)

I'm really happy that you guys managed to finish your games on deadline. You have good time management, or at least you can measure how lengthy your MAGS game should be. Mine is way too long, and I though I could have finished it on time, but I'm not happy with the result. There are no sound effects nor music, and lots of bugs. I have not given up from my project however, I'll be working on it, and I hope to finish it next week. Good luck, and may the best game win! :=

Voted. Congratz and thx to all of you, that's a nice MAGS ;)

I've played through some of the entries (and I will play the other in the near future), and they are really great! Now I see how much in my approach to making adventure games should be improved. Thanks a lot, guys! That's a valuable lesson. I'll try to step forward to creating a really interesting game in the February MAGS.

As for "The Ice-Cream Mystery" I must say that the process of creating it was totally unscheduled, and I ended up having one background and a rewritten scenario thee days prior to the deadline. As a result, there was no time to implement even the rewritten scenario, and the action stops right after the first scene. For those of you who are interested in what should have happened, here is the brief overview:

The main character, Pat, works at the cafe of Mr. Elcric in the town of Durusk. They have a really cold winter in the town, and are expecting no visitors or only those occasional customers that just want to get warmer and drink a cup of hot coffee. At the day the game starts they face a really strange customers behavior.

Despite the cold weather the customers ask for the pink ice-ream in big quantities. Some of them aren't willing to share the reason while others are giving just a pieces of information. When the player finally got the clue, she realizes that the owner of the local ice-cream factory has dropped his golden ring into the pink ice-cream substance, and figured that only after the ice-cream had been distributed to the local stores and coffee shops. So, everyone just wants to find the ring; it is a kind of lottery for the customers.

Finally, after all the ice-cream being eaten, the ring is still missing. This is where the piece of paper on the order board comes in handy. The player receives it at the beginning of the game, when all the hustle about the ice-cream hasn't started yet. The paper says: "I'm very disappointed about your quality of service. My daughter only left her new white Teddy bear for one minute, and got it completely smeary. Then it was pink, not white. I'm feeling terrible about it. We loved your cafe so much." After the talk with Mr. Elcric the player realizes that there was another helping of the ice-cream, hidden in the flowerpot by another waiter, Ms. Sispille. She left it for herself to eat it at lunch (flowerpot was the only safe place, in her opinion). She was distracted and had completely forgotten about the ice-cream. So, it melted and colored the child's toy into the color of pink.

Now, the only place where the ring could be is the flowerpot that was taken to the staff room after the incident with the Teddy bear. Pat and Mr. Elcric find the ring and have a happy ending.

That was the rewritten scenario, and obviously, I had time just to barely touch it :( But now you know why there are guys in cafe ordering three pink ice-creams, and why there is a ring in the ice-cream :)

Played, finished and enjoyed all the games during the weekend.
There were some really nice design choices and a lot of interesting ideas for sure and I hope that everyone's already working on their next game.
