    Well, whatever the requirements, it'll be good for the community. I only joined a month ago but it feels like the release of the new version has inspired a lot of enthusiasm. I suspect we'll see a lot of creativity in the coming months.


    I sure hope so! wink

    Tonight I was suprised to find that someone did a preview video of our game on YouTube. It didn't take long for the video to get a bit crazy. I had a good laugh though -- the guy was making up stuff he missed in the dialogue as he went along. smile

    Watch it here:

    Irish grin

    I've still not had a chance to try the game out myself yet. Hopefully get some time the morrow or after the weekend. The textures of the artwork remind me of adobe photoshop... hmm. grin Looks nice though wink

    Adobe photoshop? Photoshop's too ridiculously expensive. I tried out a whole bunch of stuff and found Manga Studio 5 to be a drawing program that makes me happy (and that didn't cost a small fortune - I was able to pick it up on a special for about 25USD).

    It doesn't have as many features as photoshop or all the effects and resources, but it's really nice to draw in - I get good feedback and things are more likely to come out as they would if I'd drawn them on paper (this is a problem in some of the cheaper software). So I'm pretty happy with it. smile

    I think all cs2 products of adobe are free just google: "adobe photoshop cs2 free" it's freeware now & I think the majority of other cs2 products are freeware too. There is also Gimp which is open source I think? I believe quite a few people use that.

    The issue is certainly not finding free software, but finding something that works well enough for what you want to do. MS5 is in my opinion superior to the old versions of photoshop, but that is just due to my personal criteria (as explained above). smile

    What do you use?

    I don't actually sort out artwork - I'm more of a planning/visual design person & coder. I have used photoshop for a lot of years now though for creating graphics for web design etc. I tried illustrator but couldn't come to grips with the pen tool in that. Not tried gimp yet. Have tried paint tool SAI though.

    I plan on forking out the artwork & animation for my own project to others, so that I can get on with the development, planning/organizing side of things.

    Ah, okay. It is just more efficient to work in a team if one can, considering how much time a lot of game development tasks take up.

    Are you stuck in Mr. Bunting's Modest Adventure? Hints to help you get moving again are now available on the official site.

    The hint system
    The hints for the game are presented in a format which gives the player more info if they request it, while trying to reveal as little as possible about the solution to a particular puzzle. Hints are separated into different sections to allow players to quickly find what they are looking for.

    The full walkthrough
    A barebone do-this-do-that walkthrough for the game. We strongly advise players to exhaust the hint system before consulting the walkthrough.

    We've discovered another gameplay video. This one's in German and the guy tries to translate as he goes along.

    I just watched the second installment of this Let's-play with the Audio>German>English translations on... I must say, I never knew our game had so many references to ski lessons in Canada.

    I'll add another line to the thread about things you need to do before starting your first adventure game project: learn German.
