I was wondering how everyone here makes games in AGS... please place any of your practices or thoughts on your process from start to finish. Include tools you use and resources to those tools, (if you have them.) It can be a fan game or an original game. This can be somewhat of a resource thread for anyone wanting to make a game in AGS.

Thanks in advance for sharing. :D

The most important thing is to complete the tutorial first. With the removal of the interaction editor, AGS has gotten its learning curve up a bit and you definitely want to know how the program works before you're gonna mess around with it.

Thanks Erpy! What about graphics programs, sound editors, and such? Which ones have less learning curves and those with steep ones?

And how about the actual thought process from start to finish -- before you even touch the computer??

Photoshop is great not only for backgrounds, but for sprites as well. On the AGS forums, there's a thread that lists all kinds of free graphics programs, however, that might suit you if you can't get your hands on photoshop.

For sound editing, try AUDACITY. It's free, powerful, and easy to use.

There's also a Demo Game (called Demo Quest) I think for AGS. It helps familiarize you with its features.

Thanks BT, that is really helpful too. I hope to see more input from others out there that love to design games in AGS. (Every little bit helps.)

Looking forward to more helpful hints, advice, or just general game design talk. :smokin
