Welcome to AGS!

Adventure Game Studio allows you to create your own point-and-click adventure games like the old Sierra and LucasArts classics, but with modern features such as digital music and alpha blending.

AGS is based around an easy-to-use IDE, where you can set up all the parts of your game, and then add some script to process game events. Making a game has never been so productive!

Installing AGS

Note: AGS Editor is Windows only.

Download AGS. The latest stable release is always available from the AGS Download site, and beta releases can be found at the top of Editor Releases Forum.

Install AGS. Select the Installer and double click on it, or if you downloaded from the forums, there's also an option to get as zip, which can be extracted to a folder you want to.

Run AGS. Double-click on AGSEditor.exe on the extracted or the installed folder. If you used the installer, it should have also provided a shortcut on the start menu.

To help you proceed further you should check the manual provided with AGS, which is also available online here. It's also recommended to participate in the forums to get additional help when developing your game.

To get started, read the tutorial.
