| sprite_artist = 
| background_artist =
| programmer =

What you need to know

All of these fields are optional, except for the game_name. Use them as you need them. For example, a writer/designer/artist/scripter could be considered just an author, but if the game has different people doing different jobs, then those fields can be added.

The ags_id corresponds to the id number of the game in the AGS Games page. for example, Ben Jordan Case 4 has the link http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/site/games/game/513/, so the ags_id is 513.

New field? - Series

I propose adding a Series field for the Infobox. With more and more AGS Games being released as multi-game series, or episodic works, this would be a useful addition to this template.

Here's a Infobox of 7 Days a Skeptic, and I'll use the 'Additional Credits' to demonstrate what I think the Series should be like.
