    Can we post our own games? Uncharitable and myopic souls might call my games mediocre. But yesterday I made a special edition that lets you put another name instead of the main character. It's a...

    I don't know if it's good etiquette to start a new thread to promote a game, so I'll mention it here: I found some reviewers, the game is on sale, and all systems are go!

    The Count of Monte Cristo...

    Ah, got it! Now that you point it out... :)

    Yes, font rendering was a pain. AGS will only antialias with a solid background, and I prefer transparency. I used to have my own antialiasing code, but...
  4. You mean the lack of 3D, antialiasing or color?...

    You mean the lack of 3D, antialiasing or color? That's a deliberate choice. They don't add to the story. That particular screen is the worst, because there's no color at all, sprites are scaled above...

    Yes, exactly. You do solve puzzles, but I make them as easy as possible - I just want people to experience the story. Theater is an excellent idea. As you say, book readers tend to be small-c...

    Nothing that could compete with other publishers. My main concern is just to get the games right. The idea is so big, and so new, that when I get it right publicity will take care of itself. So my...

    Book sites are surprisingly hostile to anything that sounds like promotion (BookClubForum.co.uk even changed my user name because it sounded to much like my web site, and most book sites don't allow...

    Thanks for the suggestion. I'll start trawling the blogs. Yes, getting a quote from a star name would be the ideal strategy, as my games don't really fit any existing distribution channels (I can...

    Not yet. Everyone says I should make it available on the phone. It's based on AGS, so I'm hoping that now that AGS is open source, other platforms will follow.


    Any idea how? Sorry to be dense....
  11. How do you find reviewers outside the gaming community?

    I just finished making a game that might appeal to non-gamers, but I'm not sure who to approach. Any ideas?

    My games are based on classic books, so I tried a few book related sites. Trouble is,...

    This. And if they try to promote the arty games they go bust. I used to subscribe to GamesTM here in Britain. I remember them raving about Ōkami, a beautiful game in every way. A few years later...

    Oh, APART from DOSBox? Never mind.
    DOSBox is a beautiful piece of work.
    Though I'm sure the internal speaker on my 286 sounded better when playing Zak McKracken. Some things can't be emulated I...

    My first game was like that. it wasn't deliberate though - just some buggy room links and last minute changes that twisted the map before the game was released. :)

    Monkey Island is pretty much the Pirates of the Caribbean. OK, the movie came later, but the game was based on the ride. There are a couple of sites that compare Disney shots to game shots and...

    I hope you like it :) Like I said, it was my first game (and the next two were even more experimental) and the latest one is a bit more polished.

    That was a big reason why I chose that as my first...

    Are we allowed to post out own games? My first game is now freeware. I don't know if it's awesome, but some people liked it a lot. Being a first game it definitely has its weaknesses and quirks, but...

    I remember the first time I saw Atlantis. I had an old laptop that could only play simple games, and the forests in Atlantis were beautiful! I still think of them when in real forests. Unfortunately...

    Mentally playing The Picture of Dorian Gray. I'm designing it, and going over the game in my head, to see if it would work. If it doesn't work I change it. now THAT is interactivity :)

    Just signing in. I make adventure games based on classic books. I spend most days sitting in my basement with a candle, old computer and pile of old novels. Sometimes I surface to see if the outside...
