Heh I think Jaw breaker wont break the rules, as it didn't appear in Sierra/Lec games, but of course LV2 is a well known AGS games, using that item may not be good idea.

I have a question. Do I have to make my own music or can I use resoyrces? I kind of can't write music and I don't want the game to be silent.

If I have the time, I think I might just participate in this MAGS comp.  We'll have to see. :)

It sounds interesting but I think I will sit this one out but I give you a tip:
Look in the thread "Things that haven't been iventory item...yet" thread in AGS Talk and Chat for tips and hints of which items that have been used in Adventure games and not.

i thougth these were kinda of good (subject)/plot lines.  i was trying to go for stuff that hadn't really been explored in adventure games at all. of course magintz cut out my coolest idea (my opinion) of an alternate history.  (hitler won WW2, russians won the cold war etc.)  i guess that was just to make the (two) winners ideas make more sense.  

altho now that we've dropped the 2003 requirement, it should still work.

anyway what i had in mind for the contest was more of a plot based game.  i didn't want to tie anyone down, just make them use some idaes that haven't been fully explored yet in adventure games.

as far as i'm concerned, you reallly only have to use elements of the plot ideas. ie you don't have to travel back in time so long as your story has some sort of mention of time travel in it.  

that's whe're i'm coming from tho.  feel free to disagree.


I like having low self-esteem.  It makes me feel special.

I'm a passionate fan of alternate history fiction, so I'm kinda annoyed that it was cut out. So I'll do a game based around it, and make it qualified through the whole time-travel thing. Or I'll slack off for another month. No promises ^_^

It includes time travel, post apocalyptic world and all of the characters are AGSers.
Al_Ninio - main character.
Annie - Al's boss
Miez - scientist
n3t - maniac.
Me - Evil Bitch, the antagonist
The rules are awesome, BTW.

Ive added touches such as the paintings in order add other forum members into the game in a very subtle way.....

I hope the relevant people don`t mind...

Don`t worry its not gonna be a vulgar game in the mould of flashbax....

....i`ll leave all the vulgar stuff for the flashbax :prequel..
