Point and click adventure games are not everyone's cup of tea. However they provide a tremendously diverse platform where literally 'anything goes'. In a world overrun with budget breaking epics it's good to know that there are still games being written for those of us that like a more mentally challenging, and stimulating, experience from time to time.
I wrote my first adventure games back in the late 80's on a seriously overworked ZX Spectrum. Though I'm now a professional game programmer I still like the challenge of writing adventure games as a way to let my imagination loose and to practice drawing, composing and story writing.
These games take a lot of time and energy to write. If you can afford to make a donation as a sign of your appreciation and support then please do so. It will be gratefully received and encourage the making of more advanced adventures in the future.

Bog's Adventure in Easy3D - Short Game - Easy - Tech Demo
This is just a short (7 rooms) game to test out (okay, I admit it, show off!) my Easy3D module, inspired by the fabled WMGS engine. All the rooms in the game are built in AGS as normal playable 2D rooms, with objects, characters, hotspots, walkable areas, and regions as normal. Then by initiating the module, with just one function call, the display switches to 3D and the same room can be played in 3D. The module also provides 3D parallax areas that can be added to standard 2D rooms. Anyway check it out. It is very processor intensive so at least a 2Ghz computer is recommended.
