Best Adventure Game? Should I make one?

Hi everyone,

As you may have seen in the discusion about the best RPGs, i'm deciding what game to start next. Another option is an Adventure Game.

Sensible Soccer aside, Monkey Island is my favourite all time game (but that probably just my age ) so I am considering making one. So my questions are:

*is there enough interest, as they are not so popular these days.
*what are you favourites on the App Store.
*what would you like to see in it.

ADMINS: This is a very similar question to the one I posted about RPGs, but the games genres are v different, so i though it warranted a different Thread. If you feel the need to merge the threads, could you rename the other one to "Best RPG/Adventure game? Should I make one?", and PM me. Thanks!

I would love an adventure game. I've really been after one for a while. Something with a similar concept to Tomb Raider would be cool, in 3D would be amazing. Or, come up with an original idea too; that encourages people to take a look as its something new. 2D graphics would be cool too, if done right - but controls are the most important. I was put off of buying a very promising looking adventure game called Flashback as it had what looked like bad controls.

What about Jak and Daxter type story? I dunno if that's classified as adventure or not?, I don't know... but it sure was fun.

If something online is free, you are not the customer - you are the product.

I had a nice long post but my ipod glitched up -.-

Beat Monkey Island's riveting story with twists, strange item combinationd, perfect characters and...

Oh wait. It's a classic.

But MI is my fave point and click (not the remake with bad controls on ipod but xbox version was fine!)

So does it have to be a point and click adventure? Or any type of adventure game?

All adventure games need good humor. So it won't get boring
Is this game going to be like puzzles and inventory and walking around collecting type stuffs? Or like 1112?

Probably walk around, collect things, talk to people, use objects, maybe mini puzzle games. Ive not played it, is that not what 1112 does?
