I am working with a team of friends in creating a Full Motion Video
(mostly) adventure game. We are developing a script/screenplay and it looks pretty
promising. We want the game’s actions to take place in 1st person (so
when the player has control of the playing character, he/she sees
through the character’s eyes) and when actions are done, such as
picking up a bottle or talking to other people, full motion video
displays the action occurring then.
Does anyone have any game engine recommendations? I have been looking at AGS
and Adventure Maker, and both look good, but I don’t know if anyone has
any other suggestions. Is SLUDGE any good? Anything else? Something
that is fairly popular so it would be fairly easy to get support/forums, is
cheap or free, and requires little scripting knowledge?
I have worked fluently with video and editing, so everything that will
be prepared ‘before’ placing into the game engine is pretty well
covered, but working with a specific game engine is what I’m worried
about, any help would be great!

I suggest posting the question with the programmers on http://www.gamedev.org . You can look into the link for Jeff Tunnell on ‘Cool Sierra Links’ above. He has created the torque engine. KQIX has been using that engine and there is a link to them as well.
You can look into ‘Code4fun’ and game developement on the microsoft web page. They have a series using DirectX and I think C# or Visual Basic. It is a 3D tank game.
Maya (expensive), OpenGL, Macromedia Flash…
The above Are NOT suggestions based on experience. I only wish I could get into game developement so I have been looking around. Good luck on your project. Maybe we will see you back to create an old Sierra style game.
