Ags (Adventure Game Studio)

Adventure Game Studio (AGS) is an easy-to-use game development engine that enables developers to create classic-style point-and-click adventure games. The platform provides a suite of tools for building and designing games in the style of titles from the 1980s and 1990s. AGS offers pre-built functions for inventory systems, character interactions, dialogue trees, and more. The engine is designed around the concept that newcomers can begin creating a game without prior experience and build upon their skills as they progress through projects. AGS has been used to create many indie adventure games due to its free distribution model and supportive community platform where creators can share ideas, resources, tutorials, and help with troubleshooting problems.
