MAGS January Opens Its Doors to Game Creation Revolving Around “Black Death”


Adventure Game Studio. Easily my favorite engine, second only to SCUMM (bet ya didn’t see that coming). Anyway, MAGS! Unlike most jams, which tend to last anything from 72 hours to a full week with no engine restriction, MAGS spans a full month and requires participants to use… wait for it… Adventure Game Studio! Who’s in the mood for either playing or even better, creating some freeware adventures?

Yup. The black death. Not necessarily THE black death however, as variations are also permitted for this month’s MAGS competition. Sci-fi, medieval, a mix of the two or something even more obscure – anything goes, so long as it relates to… well, the black death (aka. the plague). Best of luck with MAGS January, and happy new year!

As always, last month’s MAGS entries have been listed below, with no victor as yet (and a potential late entry?). Good stuff.

Space Tunneler (CaptainD)
Here’s a bit of retro arcade fun – simple concept, pilot your spaceship through the space tunnels without hitting the walls too much – with a lot of tweaking of the controls and difficult level to hopefully make it more than what it at first appears.

Outta’ Juice! (Funkpanzer)
Collect items from the three rooms in Coach’s gym then go see him to start the round. Be sure to follow Coach’s instructions! Keep all the spinners from collapsing until the timer runs out and watch those delicious, failure prone point algorithms do their thing!
