Create Your Own Adventure Game

Use Adventure Game Studio to make a classic point-and-click.

Hey, remember point-and-click adventure games? I sure as heck do. Classic series like Sierra’s King’s Quest and Leisure Suit Larry, and of course LucasArts’ Monkey Island and Sam and Max, were the reason I counted myself among the PC gamers in the nineties. The genre never had to die, but die it did as Sierra and Lucas quit producing adventures after games moved to 3D and the market for hand-drawn games dried up.

And so, the point-and-click became pointedly retro. But hope is not lost. If you’ve read Gaming Hacks (O’Reilly), you’ve learned how to run classic LucasArts adventures on your modern-day PC. And in this very book you’ve already seen how to run your classic Sierra games on your Game Boy Advance [Hack #47] . But what if all these retro puzzlers aren’t satisfying your need for adventure? Well, have you ever thought of making your own?
