  1. Haven't seen this posted here yet, but hopefully interesting to you all. As is fashionable these days, Jane Jensen recently launched a Kickstarter campaign, you can see it here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1005365109/jane-jensens-pinkerton-road-2012-2013-csg Overall, I'm pretty excited, and I'm hoping for some more great games from her! It seemed like she had a lot of trouble getting Gray Matter pushed out the door, and then it still seemed a bit low on production value. Gabriel Knight isn't on the table, but her next game, Moebius, sounds pretty interesting. They've o
  2. I'm currently in the midst of Dark Souls! It is such a punishing, yet rewarding experience when you actually overcome the challenges ahead of you. Additionally, the amount of exploration/discovery fun to be had is huge, mostly because the game world is sometimes so inexplicable that you actually feel like you are exploring some incredible foreign land. I also recently finished L.A. Noire - not exactly an adventure game, but similar in a lot of ways. The game is pretty slow in its build up, but it ends up painting an interesting picture of the whole "good cop trying to beat the system" id
  3. I have to admit with embarrassment that I've never played the Indiana Jones games (it's on my list!), but if that is your original artwork for the game, I'd say you are off to a very good start - it's exactly the "old adventure" style I'd expect. I'm not much with art, so I can't help you there. But looks great so far!
  4. In case my vote counts, I'd greatly recommend Wintermute over AGS. I started my project with AGS, but found it lacking in many areas, and eventually unworkable. But honestly, after using Wintermute a bit, I can only think that AGS is more popular because it's more user-friendly. I've found that the level of abstraction used by WM in ALL areas of the game make it extremely workable for any situation. For example, a room in WM is not strictly identifiable as a room...it's really just a collection of overlaid graphics. But this level of ambiguity really lets you get away with a lot.
