MAGS March: Make a Game About the “New Seasons”


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 freeware adventure games?

The time for seasonal change has come around, and as such, this month’s MAGS competition is all about just that. Interpret it however you see fit, from spring to summer, fall to winter, or go nuts and skip a season! Up to you, so long as… the seasons change. Somehow. In some way.

As always, last month’s MAGS entries have been listed below, with no victor as yet (voting doesn’t end until March 15th, after all). Good stuff.

Boogie Bum

Can you help The Bum find Roger? Still more movie than game, but reached a point of diminishing returns on the project.

The Case of the Muffin Diver

The Case of the Muffin Diver (Retro Wolf)
Detective Max Griff gets a call from the local Sheriff, there’s a headless body in the forest!

Home Sweet RoN
