One site I checked said it was cancelled and the other said it was not released yet.


It's nice to be important but it is much more important to be nice.

I sent the developer a message, she's a member. Hopefully she can answer.

I asked about that game a month ago - the developers said that 'a new concept seems to be emerging' and there could be some progress made.
Luckily it is not cancelled!

This is correct, Agon - The Tale of the Four Dragons has not been cancelled, but postponed. This is because it seems unlikely that Private Moon Studios could generate the resources for implementing the traditional Agon concept in its full splendor, as originally planned.

However, some good news:

Experiments are being done to build the game with a new, different approach in the design, but without compromise on what is really important. It would be too early to talk about the details, there is still a lot to be done, as the team has been focusing on new FMV "Miazma or the Devil's Stone" during the past two years.

And another piece of good news wink :

As a relic of the first, traditional concept of Agon - The Tale of the Four Dragons, Private Moon Studios is planning to make the original, unpublished demo of the game available for download. Although it was not intended to be a final version (some fine-tuning was still planned), this demo will give you an idea about the original concept. It covers a full scene with great puzzles, English voice and subtitles.

I will come back with more info when available.

As promised, here is the link to Agon - The Tale of the Four Dragons "relic" demo smile

Download Agon-5 demo from Private Moon Studios site

Important:
Please note this is not an official demo, not for distribution. It should be used "as is". No updates have been made for some time and it has not been optimized for more recent system configurations.

It is a kind of "raw" demo, for example character emotions were to be elaborated further, among other things. But it will give you a good idea about the original concept, including puzzles.

This scene is not where the game begins. We are in 1904, Peking, China. Following a clue, professor Hunt visits a young lady who is concubine of the emperor and lives in the Forbidden City, very well guarded...

Have fun smile

Fantastic Pilaus

It was so nice to hear that great voice of Mr Hunt again and the puzzles were great in the Demo. Especially liked the clock puzzle but all 3 were interesting.

While checking out Miazma, your next FMV game, I can't tell for sure but is that a different actor playing Jonathon Hunt? It looks like the Hungarian version of Miazma released in April 2015, will there be a release soon for other languages?

Thanks GreyFuss smile

To tell the truth, this is not the same voice which you could hear in the previous episodes! Sadly, the original actor Peter Meikle died after The Lost Sword of Toledo was released. In this demo, the voice of the professor is by British voice actor Howard Ellison. His voice is very similar and he did a fantastic job.

But there was no change in the role of Jonathan Hunt. Simply, the actor László Görög was much younger, as the original shooting had been exactly a decade ago.
Miazma was designed for easy localization. Private Moon Studios is currently trying to find the resources to release a full English version.

Has there been any news on the game's development since the making of this thread's last entry? These posts are the most recent information I've been able to find.

welcome to GameBoomers ProfZM! I spoke to Pilaus in June of 2019 and she let me know the game is not being produced. The story may continue but not in the form of a game.

Sorry to hear that the game is not being produced. The demo had a compelling story, great graphics and a few nice puzzles, and was of a high quality similar to that of Lost Sword of Toledo. One would think that with a demo of such high quality someone would be willing to back another game in the AGON series. Kudos to the artists, programmers and game designers who created the demo...I feel lucky to have played it.

Thanks for the update, Ana.

If you can find a publisher willing to fund it ergggo it could become a reality!

Thanks for the welcome!

A shame that it isn't being produced anymore, I just recently got the games back on Steam after remembering how I enjoyed them so much.

If its an issue of funding though, couldn't Private Moon simply turn to Kickstarter or some other similar service? Granted, I can see how that scenario might be an uphill battle, given the relative obscurity of the franchise.

Personally speaking, I'm sick of Kickstarter. Too much money spent for nothing but excuses makes me a resentful person. I have lots of games I contributed to that the developers disappeared. I won't contribute anymore unless it's someone I personally am friends with and I don't care if I ever see the game.

I, too, have become disillusioned with Kickstarters.
Every man and his dog jumped on the band wagon at one time but then in some cases never came up with the goods.
I am extremely picky now about who I'm prepared to support with my hard earned cash mad
