Default Top-down RPG with built-in editor

It was a top-down RPG that I remember looking fairly similar to the art style and graphical level of Castle of the Winds - http://www.mobygames.com/images/shot...-leave-the.gif

I played it in the 90s, early 90s I'm fairly sure. It was probably a 3.1 game, but I can't be certain. It definitely wasn't DOS or 98.

I don't remember there being any music, and there was definitely no speech. It was top down , but action based - I think you just walked into people to attack them.

It mostly seemed to be set in modern day, and there was a big focus on the fact that it had a built-in editor that let you make your own levels. The included sample story said that you had been whisked away from your home in a tornado, and when you landed, your clothes had scattered, so your first goal was to get your "Grubby Pants And Shirt" put on. There was also a copyright-infringing element where Gumby from the Claymation shorts was a character, both in the canon story and who could be placed in created levels.

If anyone can help me out with this game, it'd be amazing - I've been trying to remember this game for years now!

This sounds a lot like the adventure construction set

No, that definitely wasn't it, it was certainly at least a 3.1 game or a 95 game, not a DOS game. Thanks anyway though!

Also, sorry for the long response time on my end

Aha! Finally found this relic by looking up Lord Soth's site on archive.org...should've thought of that earlier, it's the only place I can think of that I would have downloaded a Win 3.1 game.

It's called "Adventure Gamer", and was distributed as "advntr10.zip", which you can find several places around the internet, like here.

I gotta say thanks - for the longest time I couldn't remember what this was, but this topic got me to finally go out and find it.

I'm not sure how you might go about locating a registered version....I wouldn't be surprised if there wasn't a copy anywhere on the internet. But I'll keep an eye out.
