Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game may or may not change significantly over the course of development. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you may want to wait until the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We think the Adventurezator is perfect for Early Access because of it's player driven content and short levels. Usually a point-and-click adventure game would be horrible for Early Access, since not much will have changed, and you'd have to replay much of the same things you already did when the final version comes out.

But in the Adventurezator, you can keep making and playing different Adventures as we add more content to the game - it's not about playing through a point-and-click game, it's about making making and playing them. And helping us shape what new content gets added so you can make and play better adventures.

And because we need some extra cash for development. Most games on Early Access do, but they don't tell you that. Most games are lying to you. We don't think that's a good way to start a good relationship with our players, is it?
___________________________________________________________________”

How long will this game be in Early Access?

“As long as the community tells us the game still needs work before being released, and gives us feedback that we want to incorporate before release (although we do plan to keep adding content after release)

We estimate that the game will see it's official release during winter 14/15, but the feedback we get from Early Access might have a huge impact on this.
___________________________________________________________________”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Not that we've added workshop support, there's a lot of content we'll be adding in the coming months.

Additional features and content:
  • - All 12 levels of 'When Pigs Fly' (we won't release campaign levels after the 9th during Early Access, to avoid spoiling the end of the campaign before release)
  • - Halloween pack (two new playable races, new assets, and a mini-campaign)
  • - Several additional Pigasus official standalone levels
  • - Mini-levels inside closed houses
  • - Lots of additional content
  • - Bug fixes & usability improvements
  • - Performance optimizations

For a more detailed view of our development plans for the coming months, check our roadmap doc on:
http://www.adventurezator.com/roadmap.html
(This document will get updated as we develop stuff and take Early Access feedback into consideration)
___________________________________________________________________”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Most of the major features are already in, but there's a lot of content to be added. Here's what's already in:

These modules are mostly done:
  • - Actor Creator
  • - Cutscene Creator
  • - Level Editor
  • - Campaign Creator & Player
  • - Game player
  • - Campaign levels 1 to 3
  • - One standalone level
  • - Workshop support

As usual for a game on this stage, there are lots of bugs, monsters, and all sorts of annoyances and issues. It shouldn't be played by anyone. ;)

Here's an unedited gameplay video of a Campaign level, if you want to see how it currently looks and plays:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JIzzi43POg0
(Remember, there was no scripting or programming involved in the making on that level - all pointy and clicky, using the tool available inside the game itself).
___________________________________________________________________”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The game will have a permanent 25% discount during Early Access, bringing it to $15. The currently planned price for the full release is $20.
___________________________________________________________________”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“There's still a lot of content to be added, and the community could help us a lot with suggestions and feedback on how to improve the game and make it bigger & better.

There's an in-game reporter to allow players to easily give us feedback without even having to open a browser. Or you can use the official forums on Steam if you want other players to join in.

This is a game about making and sharing Adventures. Only with the input from a lot of actual players can we really turn this game into the Infinite Well of Adventure the we envision it can be.”

About This Game

The Adventurezator is an emergent adventure game about creating emergent adventure games!

Rock, Paper, Shotgun says:
"Madness! Brilliant madness."

You enter the room. Squinting your eyes under the dim light, you can make up the improbable form of a pig with wings. It is glorious. “We are Pigasus. Mighty game developers”, asserts the airborne swine, “And this here is Adventurezator”.



“Adventurezator is an adventure game. Well, sort of. You see, we all love adventure games (as all sentient beings in their right minds should) but you must admit that even the best of them lack something very special: good old YOU.”

“In Adventurezator, you not only play an ever-renewed pile of brilliantly designed point-and-click adventures: you actually get to design your own, and publish them too! The best part? You can do that without all that boring programming, or math. It’s all very technical, but (if we had to put it in layman’s terms) it works like a very fancy cable connected directly to your brilliance.”

You stare at the flying mammal for a while, barely containing your happiness. But still, you could use a little more detailed information. Something like a feature list. Maybe with bullet points. Pigasus opens its inventory and gladly gives it to you.



Features:

  • An Adventure Sandbox: create and play your own adventures with no scripting or technical knowledge required;
  • Workshop support: share your creations, and easily play the best adventures the community has to offer;
  • Free-form Object Interaction: objects dynamically interact with each other – no need to manually make a cup and a water fountain find what they can accomplish together;
  • Actor editor: create, save and share your own characters;
  • Cutscene Editor: show the world your movie-directing abilities have been drastically underrated until now;
  • Level Editor: easily drag, drop and rotate components to create your own levels;
  • Campaign Editor: string your chapters together and create a world-spanning saga;
  • Full-fledged campaign and stand-alone extra levels: for your enjoyment and to inspire greater creations!
  • More post-launch content: we will continue supporting Adventurezator with official and community-driven updates;
  • Pointy. Clicky.
  • Pigs. Naked, Baby, Flying, Godly Pigs.

Early Access Review
Adventurezator: When Pigs Fly is part point-and-click adventure in the old LucasArts style, reminiscent of Grim Fandango and Monkey Island, and part sandbox creator because you can actually create your own adventures which is really the key aspect of the game.

It looks to be a fantastic point-and-click adventure game and sandbox creator and I am really looking forward to seeing where it’s going. The main issues I really have with the game in its current stages is how in some instances it’s fairly lacking in content and that some things really aren’t explained all too well within it. However, it has some fantastic potential, and certain aspects such as the level creator are absolutely fantastic and its definitely worth looking into if you like the idea of creating your own adventures in this way.

The meat of the game really is in the editor and sandbox aspects, so if you are looking to get it for the campaign you may be slightly disappointed as there’s only 3 short levels as it stands and it feels more like an add-on to show you the sorts of things you can create.

For my more information and some demonstrations of features (etc.), my video preview is below:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ME_cxXapmgE

PLEASE NOTE: My “preview” series focuses on Early Access games and is more of a “first impressions” than a review. Due to it being incomplete I can’t properly review it; however Early Access isn’t a way to avoid criticism, so I feel first impressions after a good few hours of play is the best method to assess Early Access titles.

Early Access Review
Pigasus Games invites gamers to create their own adventures in its Steam Greenlight-approved adventure creation game, Adventurezator: When Pigs Flynow available as an Early Access title.Described by Brazilian developers as: “an emergent adventure game about creating emergent adventure games,” Adventurezator allows gamers to create, share, and play their own point-and-click adventures, without scripting or fancy technical knowledge. Players can design their own cutscenes, characters, puzzles, levels, and campaigns using powerful yet simple-to-use tools, and will be able to share them via Steam Workshop.The latter half of the game’s title, When Pigs Fly, is a full-length adventure campaign created entirely within Adventurezator as a testament to the game’s creative potential and limitless possibilities.Adventurezator is a game with a lot of scope and a lot of potential. There certainly is the grounds for a fascinating, time consuming adventure/crafting game to be found here.At this point Adventurezator is off to a good start. Those looking for a completed adventure game will find that When Pigs Fly is still very early along and is simply not there yet. As an editor the Adventurezator framework has a great deal of potential, but like any creation software it will eventually require an active community to share what they are working on in order for adoption to thrive. Hopefully that will prove to be the case here.

Early Access Review
I have currently at the time of this review played for 3 hours and have encountered some bugs here and there, some causing me to close the game and some just telling me it's a bug and allowing me to continue. There is currently a small selection of levels to play but they are well made and fully voiced with beatifully made cutscenes. But the big thing with this game which makes it one of my favourite games is that it has its own story creator and not just any story creator. It is called 'Sandbox' and inside here you have a range of tools such as 'Cutscene Creator' where you create your own cutscene as seen in the animated trailer (Yes that was made with this!) 'Level Editor' where you make your own levels with characters and such. It is still buggy and very featureless but at the moment there are a fair amount of things to add. 'Campaign Creator'(As of this review it is not in) You can link levels and make branching stories and such to make a full game and not just seperate levels. 'Actor Creator' Basically the title, you create your own actors for use in your levels.

I would recommend SAVING OFTEN as I have come across a very common bug that freezes the UI and makes it, most the time, impossible to do anything so beware.

For now if you like making your own stories like I do then I would recommend hopping in and making some so when workshop is added you can publish and become 'Famous' probably. But if you just want to play a story then it would be best to hold off for now until workshop is in or more levels are added.

For now I give the game a 7.5 for being buggy, sort of featureless, lack of levels but has a very nice range of level creating tools to work with and I have to applaud them for the cutscene creator as it works beautifully!

Video of 1 level and my level I created :D : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PiMQ6rkSgl4

Early Access First Impressions

http://youtu.be/h8pPWJ3sqps

An emergent adventure game about making emergent adventure games?
It makes one wonder if it might just be trying to reach a bit too much. After all, maybe it’s either just a game creation tool, or just a point n click adventure. Could it possible be both, and actually good at both?

Well now, in simple terms; Yes.

The game is spit into its two main components, Adventurezator, which is a rather detailed system for creating your own point n click adventure games. By detailed, I mean just that. Everything from unique characters, cut scenes, and levels can be created so far. With the option later to tie them all together in a campaign creator.

It’s simple to use, and rather intuitive, as shown in my first impressions video. Among it’s rather plentiful objects, and creation settings, it also allows the user to import images, sounds, music, and more. Featuring a rather detailed little NLE editor for creating your cut scenes and will access to any folder on your system to import needed files.

If you’ve ever played the Sims, or a similar game; you can easily create a level, building or forrest with rather amazing cartoony detail. A rather pleasant system indeed, and if they continue to add more it will only get better.

This brings us to When Pigs Fly; the point and click adventure game what according to the developers was made entirely using Adventurezator. After playing around in it, can certainly see this as being true.

You only have the option of a ‘Quickie’ though, 4 pre-completed levels to play. The Arena is a mess in my opinion. Without so much as a even a single que or popup telling me what’s going on I was quickly mangled by a rather large bear. There were no instructions on how to fight, much less what to actually even do.

Frustratingly I left to explore the When Pigs Fly chapters that are the point and click.
They’re actually rather good, although once again there aren’t any instructions on how to play. There are some objective in the top left corner however.

Sadly shortly after starting I was left confused and frustrated once again. Unable to complete a prime objective, or simply talking to a Zookwinkle. Now matter how many times I clicked, wandered about or interacted with the little gnome, I was unable to engage him in dialogue. Frustratingly I felt like just giving up and writing off the game entirely.

Good thing I didn’t, as I chose instead to play the other two Quickies, and oh my are they good. The lack of gameplay instructions did mate it tough, and I did fail a few times. Yet in the end I completed both, and found I had actually enjoyed the experience. The puzzles weren’t so much as complex and difficult to solve, as much as the gameplay and mechanics needed some polish. Easily forgiven, as the game is still in the Alpha changes at the time of writing this.

You really need to explore and hover your mouse cursor over every little nook, cranny and object to make sure you don’t miss anything.

I was also rather delighted at the fact that instead of simply evading the three bears to steal their food; I could wield an axe and murder all of them. Including the little bear cub that though I was his nanny. Such sadistic freedom made me chuckle, as I stood axe in hand over the bodies of these bears. Blood slowly pooling at my feet. Bacon might be their favourite food; but on this day the bacon made them pay.

All in all Adventurezator: When Pigs Fly has some amazing potential, and despite some gameplay issues all relating to their point and click the rest is rather wonderful. The toolset is perfect for people that want to create their own adventures, and once the game is completed sharing these with the community will easily expand the game and keep the community happy and engaged.

Pigasus Games have given people the tools with which to create their own unique stories, whether these are feats of heroism, or madness incarnate. This is certainly worth trying, and keeping an eye on for both the tool set, and their adventure game.

Early Access Review
Adventurezator is an adventure creator for point and click adventures. Still in its early stages at the time of this review, It shows a lot of promise, and the style and ease of use are pretty good, allowing a complete amatur to create professional looking levels in a 3d world with little knowledge and experience of adventure games.

The way the npc's and the puzzles are 'Emergent' is the main goal to this. You just add various elements, set a few simple paramaters, and let the npc's act accordingly. Set them a few objects to interact with, set up a few friends and enemies, and things to say and just let them go. You don't have to worry too much about pathing or complex dialogue trees (at the moment, though I imagine this may change later)

The cutscene creator is of neccessity a bit more complex than the other editing tools, but it looks like it won't be too hard to make a nice looking cutcsence to add an interesting story for the campagin. All it requires apart from some experimemnting is a bit of artistic skills or use of others work, which makes the ability to use the workshop to use others content a boon to this type of game.

The problem at the moment, apart from the inevitable bugs during development is the simplicity of the puzzles availiable and lack of ability to customise objects. Only had the game for a short while, but looking at the current state of the game it seems the developer has concentrated on getting the look and the basic mechanics in place first, so while it looks good, and is easy to use, the content and ways to interact are a little limited if you want to dive in and create devious puzzles, and truely create your own world. The current playable levels are also rather limited, as another reviewer put it, they are more to give you examples on which to to base your own work.

Time will tell of course. The developer has to balance ease of use with the complexity and flexibility of the tools availiable. As more content gets added we willl be able to see just how powerful this game creator will be. I can say that even at this early stage, its fun to mess around with and create a little world, and I look forward to seeing what else I can do in the future.

The humour and style of the game is great, and I think it can be a very interesting and involving way to tell your own story. I would reccomend this to anyone who would like to express thier creativity and make an adventure game, but do not want to have to mess around with the more complex tools avaliable elsewhere.
