How distant? Am I allowed to use a telescope?

It's a bit of a bummer that you can only vote for the winners, considering that some months had multiple strong entries and other months were won by default. There's certainly one or maybe even two non-winning MAGS games that would go in my top 3 this year.

I appreciate where you’re coming from, and this has been brought up before, but I think the current system is better for a number of reasons:
1) It’s a best of the best. Each month has a topic and each topic produces one winner (or two if it’s a draw. The runner up for Month A might be arguably better than the winner of Month B but if it didn’t win for its own topic then it doesn’t qualify for a best of the best competition.
2) The voting numbers are frankly too low. Last year only 15 people voted. Even spreading those votes over three choices it’s not worth asking them to choose from every single MAGS game of the year. We need a shortlist, and a best of the best format is the tidiest and fairest way to give us one.
3) All games are eligible for the rest of the AGS Awards (providing they’re in the DB). If there are truly some gems that missed out on Monthly MAGS recognition then they ought to be in contention for Best Short Game, Best This or Best That.

Of course those are just my personal thoughts. As host, I don’t make the rules and I don’t even necessarily enforce them unless I have to. I just put systems in place based on the rules that the community has decided. So if enough people come forward and say they think MAGGIES is unfair in one way or another, then we can of course look into adjusting things for next time.

I knew this one. You might imagine she did it to the cheering crowds but actually everyone was ordered to stay inside and not look (Schroedingists would say she was both naked and not naked). One guy apparently did peep and his name was Tom, hence the phrase ‘peeping Tom’.

Thanks for the heads up, Selmiak. I’ve corrected it.

2) Klatuu

So, who has seen the season 11 premiere yet?

Overall I quite liked it. Much better than My Struggle I and II but not without its flaws. A lot of people were really pissed off about the twist (mostly Mulder/Scully shippers). I thought it was quite a clever twist. What did you guys think? (Spoilers hidden please)

Let’s have a show of hands. Who’s in?

Rise of the Battle of the War for the Legend of the Planet of the Apes of the Dead.

Bought and downloaded yesterday. Just looking out for some spare time to actually play it.

I’ve downloaded this on my iPhone. It looks great but I can’t get past the third screen.
Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
The only thing I’ve done is pick up a bucket. I guess I’m supposed to use it on the well but I can’t get any thing to happen at any of the hotspots.

Nice one. What’s Stone Spring Studios?

Any more takers?
Will there be any challengers for Mr. Slasher?
How’s your game coming along, Hana?

I finally got around to finishing this after geting quite stuck.

One thing that impresses me about this game is the use of space and the 3D-like depth of the room. Nearly all AGS games have that basic box-shape (or variants of it). I sometimes think that it's a waste of time to make up and down walking animations (let alone diagonals) when most games pretty much just have the character move left and right 90 percent of the time anyway. But in this game I really felt that I had this big space to explore.

The other thing that impressed me was the ending. I did have one complaint about the game (that the puzzles are a bit mundane) but actually the ending kind of explains why those particular kinds of puzzles were chosen, so it was worth slogging through them to get the finale.

Nice work.

Try deleting it all and resetting the function to blank. Then try it all again. I’ve had to do that a few times for one reason or another.

Merry Chrimbletide everyone. Eat, drink, eat some more, and be merry if you like that kind of thing.

Were the other three female?
I think you’ve got it.

Did the anonymous tipper give any other information?
Was the anonymous tipper one of the other three poker players?
