Ancient Aliens - The Roots of Sound


Hi guys,
This must be the worst presentation ever on this forums, but I really suck at this...
I'm proud to release this one, it took a lot of work and dedication from us.
This game doesn't aim to bring any new concepts or breakthroughs on the genre. It's the opposite, really. We just wanted to deliver something with a classic feel.
I'm so bad with this kind of stuff that I'll just say that this game goes around the Ancient Aliens Theory, the main character is a trumpet player from Chicago who goes after a ancient technology with the help of a good-looking girl. Why? Because his father discovered the damn technology! That's why!
There's some bad guys after it as well and...
Just play the game...and comment please.

Why are you so nervous? You must be proud of yourself and your team. :)

As Sunny Penguin said, the graphics are simply awesome. I've added your game along with Sunny Penguin's game, to download them a.s.a.p, when my data plan will be renewed. I'll update you in near future.

Ancient Aliens...

Are you a big fan of the History Channel by any chance?  Because there's a show on H2 (the second History Channel) and occasionally on the main History Channel called "Ancient Aliens".  As that one teacher in "The Incredibles" would say: "Coincidence?  I think NOT!"

Anyway, the screenshots show this looks like a rather neat game.

Dboy:
I know and sometimes watch the TV series. I like the idea and possibilities of it, it fits the adventure game genre like a glove.
Thanks for the kind comments on the screenshots. Hope you play it and let me know what you think.

CaptainD:

ArjOn:
Couldn't make it without your help my friend. Thank you so much.

This is a very cool game. But why doesn't it have it's own page in the AGS games list? :confused:

Great job. Except the nice backgrounds, it has nice music and very interesting story.

Congrats on the release! Anyone looking for a nice classic point-n-click experience in the vein of Broken Sword should give it a try, and I'm not just saying that because I've helped with some of the graphics. :)

Just in case that somebody on the forums does not know Ilyich talent, check his work on Patchwork.
He's just brilliant. Period.
Answering kconan as well, I drew the backgrounds  and had the Pleasure of Ilyich doing all the colouring and in cases some perspective adjustments. I'll show some of our work as soon as I get home.
Anyway, Ilyich, I was very lucky to have you on board!
Thank you.
