    Think, the kind of Monkey Island.
    Think also, a software suitable for someone who is more a writer than a programmer (that would be me lol).
    Any suggestions?

    Wadjet eye uses AGS. I would use renpy, but you'd have troubles coding a walking character on screen if you don't know a bit of python coding :)

    In fact the character walking on the screen is the exact point where I would be the most undecided yet. Is AGS easy to use?

    I would suggest Ren'Py as well. Hire someone in the pygame community to help you get started. :)

    Look at Wintermute engine, too (it's for 2D and 2.5D adventures).

    This is what I was going mention too as it looks pretty fully-featured, though I can't say how easy it is to use or not however.

    The 2.5D part is more difficult than other 2D engines, but I think this isn't Wintermute's fault, 2.5D is intrinsically more difficult than 2D.
