I'm working on my own game, and it will be a lot like the Carol Reed ones,
since I like them alot and is totally inspired by playing them all.
It will take me a while though since I'm doing it myself and I have some
issues with bodily pains. I love doing it however, and will do my best to complete it!

Now to my question. I can promise you that I will never compromise myself,
or hold back if I really want something, that's not who I am.
I am however, interested in what you all would change, or add or whatever
to an adventure-game. (in this case, first person Point-n-click)

It can be about anything really, and the only reason I'm asking you this,
is because this is a really nice Community, and I'm not scared of you.
Maybe I should, but I'm not. kissy

If I've forgotten anything, I'm sure you'll tell me. wink

The most important aspects of an Adventure game for me are that it should have a very good story and no timed action sequences.

I can live with most other things wink

I agree, I want it to be a really good story, or at least a story that I like. smile
Stress is nothing I like very much, however, there is always that possibility
to make it SEEM timed/stressful, if you get me? wink

EDIT: Haha, tried to make use of the buttons above, no luck, hehe

Another important feature is the puzzles. Some of the puzzles are random and I get stuck on them seems like forever. There should be a easy way out if you want to use it. That option should be in the game. There are games that I played and couldn't solve the puzzle so I just quit playing. That's just me. Lots of luck with any game you make RebKean.

I agree with this as well, iag i get too stuck in a game I might give up!
It's good to get some level of challenge, but if it's to hard, I just get annoyed. wink
So that is indeed a fine line to walk, 'cause you want to satisfy as many as possible.
I have qouit some games myself beacuse it realle sucks the fun out of it,
it it's too hard. Or maybe we're too dumb, haha?

EDIT: Forgot to say thanks.....

It's easy enough to offer a puzzle skip.
Just don't make it easy to click by accident.

If it's going to be a slide show type game then you can count me out right away. I like to feel like I'm moving In a game and I want panning in my games. Some people prefer the slide show format but not me. The slide show thing is what turned me off the Carol Reed games.

If I understand you correctly, you like it as it is in the
early Carol Reed games then, where there is an skip but it's
pretty hard to find if you don't know what you're looking for?

Sorry to see you gone already. I do understand what you mean (I Think),
and the reason is of course that it's too difficult at this time.
I have never felt this though, in the CR-games, I feel pretty free.
Maybe we'll meet in the future, never give up. wink
I should Point out that I appreciate all thoughts,
although if your ideas correspond (Spelling?) with mine,
you are of course a better person. grin

No I mean don't put a puzzle skip button right near the puzzle where someone could click it by accident while trying to solve the puzzle.

What nest is that? Don't understand what you mean.....
I love to talk about things, and I can take criticism if anyone has it.
Honesty is like a religion to me and so on, but I can't see any nest....
