Ah, Adventure Game Studio. Easily my favorite engine of all time, second only to… SCUMM (bet ya didn’t see that coming). Unlike most jams, which tend to last anything from 72 hours to a week, with no engine restriction, MAGS spans a full month and requires participants to use Adventure Game Studio. So who’s in the mood for some fresh freeware adventures?
So, MAGS July should have been full of crazy high school games, teenagers running rampant everywhere. What happened, however, was far more calm and quiet as only a single game was submitted. Much as I like the creativity people are showing, this whole ‘victory by default’ thing is getting old. Even so, congratulations to granary for picking up the victory, with the stylish The New Familiar.
Let’s hope MAGS August‘s ‘Sub-par Hero’ theme will get lots more to fire up Adventure Game Studio, eh?
