You must have the folowing things to continue:
Flash 2004 or higher (i am using pics of 2004)
Sketchup (pro or easy it doesent matter)
any picture editing program (paint fireworks photoshop etc)
an simple understandng of actionscript and flash
First, im going to explain what a point and click game is,
a point and click game, also a pac game, is just as simple as point and click, this style of building is usally made for room escape games, by using point and click you can create games like exmortis, an extremely populer trio of games. today im going to show you how to make one of these games in the simplist way possible.
All games have an introduction. my game intro is simple really, you are in a helicopter, and the helicopter crashess, you are now simply in someones front yard on a deserted highway.
this is where sketchup comes in handy. you may need to do this a couple of times in your game, but hopefully only 1 time.
first what you going to do, is open sketchup. choose a template. any template and get started. now go to the 3d warehouse by going to file -> 3d warehouse -> get models, depending on what type of game it is, like, if it is a car escape, simply type in large car. or, type house, or small room, if you want the inside of a house remembor to include interior in your description. continuing on what i said, depending on what type/ genre it is you want to make some background effects, like if you making horror, you might want to add in some fog effects. by clicking view -> fog then view -> shadows, then window -> fog and drag the bar untill your happy with the fog amount, do the same for shadows but they should already be fine at this point.
here its getting a bit harder, if you want to use a key unlockable door, here is how to use it,
when you click the locked door, it doesent open, but when you click the key it goes to a new frame saying you got the key (say this is frame 12), then when you go back to the door you can use actions as follow:
on press go to and play 13 (messae saying door is locked)
if frame loaded (12) go to and play 14 (frame that is past the door)
