I am the one who originally started "Indiana Jones and the Spear of Destiny". We are no longer continuing the game, I am sorry to say. Let me tell you all a couple of things about it. Originally I played a 2d adventure point and click game named "Cuthbert PI" . It was fan-made, but I thought it was a lot of fun, and pretty good as well. I just started playing around with the engine (wich is free) and tried to make a classic FOA style display. My friend got interested too, and so we started. We practically made the whole system, inventory, verbs, rooms, you name it. But because there were only two of us, and we couldn't make backgrounds in the original style. Figuring we could get some support, and maybe people who would be wanting to join, we made a demo, showing off the engine, featuring FOA backgrounds. We planned to replace every piece with an original one. We did release it, but very shortly after that, we got busy in college and private life and put it all on a hold. We lost interest and discontinued everything. Though because we didn't want all our effort making the engine work lost, we put together a "Make your own FOA style adventure-in-an-instant" kit. We posted that on theraven.net (a message board from theraider.net).
We hoped maybe somebody else would take a look at the kit, and use our material to make his or her own adventure. I got quite some replies in the beginning, but as it usually goes, people lost interest...
I've been abroad for 11 months, but keep checking amberfisharts and FoY from time to time, because they aswell go way back, and I'm getting really excited about this demo! And now to see that SoD is mentioned, its just cool!
Mods, I know there were some 'arguments' back in the old days, but I hope you get a better idea now about certain things. Let's just say you are so lucky with Miez, and leave it. Some things buried are better left alone.
I wish you all good luck with this project, and I am really looking forward playing it!! As for the "Make your own FOA style adventure-in-an-instant" kit, if someone wants to take a look at it, i think it's buried here somewhere aswell. And for the ones who played the demo, if I remember correctly. if you recompile the kit, you get some extra content, quite a bit I think. A little FoA style Indy adventure awaits!
Good luck, share the care.
