Hi all,

I heard that you can make "adventure games" now with MovieStorm. Is this true? And if so, can anyone out there give me some starting pointers? Or any help at all?

Thank you for your time...

Peace...

Moviestorm is only for rendering video out. So you can't take the 3D assets and build a game around it (although that would be a cool companion product - Gamiestorm, maybe?). But funnily enough I just read about an adventure game maker today - http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/ . I don't know how good it is, but it seems pretty cool.

Good luck smile.gif

No, you can't create a game with Moviestorm, but you can make so called cut-scenes or animated scenes to include in games smile.gif

Moviestorm is a movie creation software, and doesn't offer interactivity that is necessary for games.
To create games, you need to look for a software (game engine or library) that you can use.

Check out these lists for game development tools:

Wow - what a comprehensive list of game making software out there. It looks like the "gamiestorm" market might already be saturated, lol...

Do you mean the "chose your path" style adventure game that Jason3 made?

That is done mainly with clever scripting and scene splitting so that each option is a separate uploaded movie.

Fo shizzle, AGS is tha SHIT my brother ! laugh.gif

Seriously - AGS is great. You just need some green-screen (Angri Buddhist's SFX Studio addon being appropriate), and a render out to 'static image frames' or whatever to capture your walk-cycles, and you are set. I made an AGS game using SIM-POSIUM once. Never released because the AGS code was bollocks ... but it was 'in the works', which is the main thing. AGS is great (and made in the UK), Moviestorm is great (and also made in the UK) ... and if you're not retarded like I am, the two togethet make for very happy bedfellows !

Duh - I didn't get that that's what he was asking blink.gif

In that case, there was a cool tutorial about it on YouTube. These guys make some very funny choose-your own adventure movies.



I had thought about doing a Moviestorm one when I first saw this but never did. I'm glad someone else got around to it. One recommendation (or request, maybe laugh.gif ) - you might try it in 3D. If you do it in a first person view the whole way, the 3D could be way cool. You might even get Chris Ollis to approve. Just sayin'...

I didn't realise that other people had had this idea. With the 3D option, you'd have to upload on YouTube, because I don't believe that it works on the MS site.
