Default 5 Days A Stranger

I envy Western, where some Amateur game makers do good job. Sometimes they make masterpiece, or unusual game which can't be made by major companies. But I never expected to see such a good 'horror' adventure game, from AGS independent.

Brief Story : Our main character 'Trilby' is gentleman but a thief. Someday he entered an old house which must be empty due to death of ex-owner, but there were some people inside, and strangely, nobody can escape from there...

Due to AGS, graphic is not very good, sound is soso, plot has some blank points. Some puzzles are not solved easily which I think as bad puzzle, and space is too small even for an independence adventure. But about atmosphere, it is awesome! Even if this adventure could have some defects, I don't care due to that dark atmosphere all through the game!

Even if you are not interested in independant game at all, I think this game is worth to play. Don't wait, just go.

Hm, I'm not sure what you mean here. Are you saying that the poor graphics are due to the engine?

Eh... Partly due to that?

But I didn't write it to blame AGS. Maybe I played several(some) independent adventures before, including some AGS ones. I saw the screenshot before I install, so could assume how it will look.

I wrote it, because recent games in market has very detailed graphic, including some horror ones, as [Silent Hill 3] in PS2. People could think different from what I thought, anyway tension & atmosphere was very good, even if that graphic quality can't be compared to some updated commercial video games.

Well, in that respect you're right. You can't compare amateur game graphics to commercial graphics. Amateur game makers don't have the time, money or resources that the big companies have, but it has nothing to do with the engine. The KQ2 VGA remake, for example, was made with AGS and has graphics on par with Sierra in their heyday.
