*bows humbly for TerranRich as well*

So, now that we've got the rules sorted... a short teaser in the form of my main character:



he doesn't look like guybrush at all :P

Place the Guybrush sprite next to him.... there's distinct difference in pose, colours, expression.

So, yes, he doesn't look like him. Nor will his character resemble him in any way.

i dunno, if he doesn't look like him at all, then how come me and vel both thought of it before we even compared the two side by side?


is the main character going to pretend he's selling fine leather jackets?

I think they both slightly simalar because Guybrush is a classic example of what a pirate probably looked like, and so to make him look like a pirate, its only logical to use some of the things that guybrush also uses.

I think one year difference isn't very important, is it? :P

Can't wait for the finished game, Hobbes!

Ok,

After almost two weeks of working, I've finished my MAGS game. I know August isn't even half over, but my work is going to begin this friday. So, my free time will become limited.

And since I wanted to finish this one rather badly, I decided to spend a lot of time on it right now, and finish it!

The game's called "Buccaneer". You play an ex-Buccaneer by the name of Richard McRoch, an Englishman who now lives in Amsterdam...

...and strangely, one morning, you find a very important item missing. Soon. the quest is on as Richard sets out to retrieve his most prized possession!

Note: I am aware of the rather melodramatic ending. But I kinda like it. :)

Enjoy!

I'm having some trouble downloading it, hmm..
first time it got to 7% percent and then there was an error and it cancelled itself, now it's been stuck on 3% for about 10 minutes.
odd..

Try again... I've been uploading several updates tonight, so you probably tried to download it during one of my upload-moments. :)

For more discussion on the game, it's also listed in the "Completed Games" forum.

On another subject: Are there other people busy with this month's MAGS competition?

I'm afraid to answer, as work is going slow, but I'm hoping to finish one in time. ;)

Sorry I can't offer you any competiton, Hobbes.  I am no where near finishing, and I'm pretty busy all of a sudden.  To satisfy your curiosity the game was about W. Shakespeare writing a play for Queen E.'s cousin's wedding.  He had to complete tasks (find ink to write with, convince someone to make costumes, etc.) in order to put on the play.  Here is some artwork I had been working on...

Ah, pity Noed! Those pictures and the plot look really interesting. But real life has this annoying tendency to vacuum-suck your free time away...

...but well, you've got a few more days and the weekend's coming up. Maybe you can shorten is here and there and release it? Would be fun to play Shakespeare!

;)

What happened to all the early MAGS criteria like must include bill gates, all characters must have pink hair, stuff like that?  ??? Those were my favourite type of criteria..
