Adventure Game Studio (AGS) is a freeware tool that can be used to create Sierra and LucasArts-style adventure games.
Abductions are events in which people, animals, or things are taken by aliens and UFOs for various purposes including experimentation and other unknown reasons.
Extraterrestrials appear in many video games in a variety of styles. Sometimes they're evil, sometimes they're benevolent, and sometimes they're very similar to humans.
Many Horror and adventure games use blood trails to either signify that something especially violent happened that spot and/or that following it will progress the narrative.
In video games, breaking the fourth wall occurs when a game becomes aware of its nature as a game, or when a character directly acknowledges the player.
The comic relief is a character, other than the main character, who is meant to add humor and lighten the mood of the game. These characters are usually very dumb or very witty, and are usually very talkative.
Game titles that make a statement of fact or opinion.
Digital Distribution is the concept of purchasing digital media via the internet and having it sent to the user directly via the internet. No physical representation of this content is given but the content resides on the users hard drive and is legally owned by them.
Games that fit this category involve characters that can traverse different dimensions.
Fascism is a controversial totalitarian, nationalistic political ideology. Within video games, various Fascist regimes are often portrayed as the enemy within the Second World War.
A digital distribution platform that focuses on providing DRM-free computer games, both old and new.
Indie Royale sells bundles of independent games for cheaper than they would cost purchased separately. Purchasers can choose to pay more than the current minimum to lower the minimum price for others.
When the title of the game does not appear immediately at the beginning of the game, but rather after the first mission or prologue.
Third-party developers and publishers occasionally engage in the practice of releasing a title or piece of DLC on only one platform for any number of reasons. Sometimes these are permanent while others are only platform exclusive for a certain window of time.
A narrative that takes an unexpected turn. Commonly, plot twists come in the form of revealing that the player character is not actually who they thought.
Point and click is an interface featured in a specific kind of adventure game, where players click on objects and characters to interact with them.
Games whose main character is so egotistical that the whole game just HAS to be named after them.
Sidekicks, different from partners, are less powerful, less important characters who support the main protagonist and generally stick by their side.
These games are designed to be played by one person, and one person only.
The concept of a character leaping forwards or backwards in time.
Incredibly grotesque, but incredibly useful.
Zombies, more accurately called the walking dead, are reanimated corpses who feed on the living, and have become a ubiquitous video game enemy. They often move slowly, but can be deadly in large numbers, which is unfortunately how they tend to travel. Shotgun time!
