How interesting that CJ actually started it in 1997 - probably the peak of the high-budget adventure game, and the beginning of the end (when publishers realised that spending five million dollars on adventure games wasn't going to pay).
Quote from: Ali on 03 Feb 2022, 21:08I think the golden age - in terms of variety and invention - is now! But there's no mistaking the fact that the we'll never see late 90s budgets again. For me, there was a real dearth of good adventures from 2000-2009, until companies like Amanita, Wadjet Eye and Telltale sparked a renaissance. To keep this on topic - how wonderful that AGS played a role in that and (ironically) helped adventure games get out of the nostalgia phase. (Something that I, having made 2 pirate adventure games, didn't contribute towards AT ALL!)
