Community "pick of the month"
« on: 13 Sep 2013, 10:59 »
As you know, sometimes we manage to choose and feature a pick of the month, and try and do this monthly. But it's not always possible.

So why not open it up to the community, which game would you choose as pick of the month, and why? If you write the title, link and up to 100 words describing why you would pick said game (what's good about it, why does it deserve your pick etc), we may very well feature it, so that we can keep a new one up each month. As you'll notice there has not been a pick for September yet.

The only rule is: Don't pick your own or your team's game (or one you had direct involvement with)!

When we can't do it, we'll refer to the community pick. So get picking!



Thank you :)

Hi Miguel - any game in the AGS database qualifies :)

Games that perhaps didn't get much attention or weren't really spotlighted when they were released, though something made them stand out to you perhaps :) Or, if you just want to discuss games that were perhaps under-rated on release or such that's fine. This topic can be used for people to discuss games they would pick and why, even if they don't intend for it to be used on the picks feature of the site ;)

Ah, okay,
I thought that pick of the month was about games made in the month that it refers or recent to that month. And that they would be showcasing AGS capabilities in order to grab new devs.

Nope not really, though it has often happened where the release and the pick have happened close together (just the way people play some of the newer games more than the older ones I guess...) So this is basically just a request for contribution to one of the site's actual features, top of the page here - http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/site/games/ :) Your chance to be credited for a Pick of the Month! If it's a good one of course ;)

A question: Was only AGS Rating Panel allowed to choose Pick of the Month, previously?

There was a pick of the month long before there was a ratings panel, so I don't think so. Handling of it seemed to pass around a lot even before.

That's right, single members did it for long periods before, then the ratings panel started adding to it once the functionality of the site switched over to AGA, and now the community can. There's no reason not to, providing people make some half decent picks!! :D

We really need to do a drive for some new panel raters soon too, cos people get busy...

Thanks for the answers, Babar and Mods :).

@Mods: I'll not disappoint you with my pick (or at least I like to pretend so! (laugh))

Ancient Alien is the game which I'm considering to put forward. But then, there are some games which I had started to play and remain to be completed. I'll submit my entry for consideration after completing those games :).

[...] We really need to do a drive for some new panel raters soon too, cos people get busy...

You're right. I've seen many games in the database which were released more than one year ago and still they are not rated by AGS Panel. I also found a special case where a demo was rated for players, won the best demo of year award but it still wasn't rated by the panel. Yes, I'm talking about CaptainD's demo game here.

I would like to join the AGS Ratings Panel as I've quite a free time on my hand, after all, what else you can expect from a college student ;)? Too bad, I joined the forums only 5 months ago :~(.

That's right. No demos get rated.

As to potential panel members, the process usually begins with moderators and existing panelists contacting those members who they feel would be suitable for the job. If you approached, it's because you have proven yourself reliable, level-headed, and a positive contributor to the community.

There is no truth to the rumor that panelists are chosen by competing in inter-species gladiatorial contests...yet. ¬¬

To be honest, I were 50-50 about demos being rated. I even checked the Rating Panel Information Thread and there was no mention of Demos not being rated.

I've a feeling that I had read somewhere that demos are not rated by the panel but at the moment, I can't recall where I had read that.

Sorry for that.

Thanks for clarifying guys..! :)

Since no-one seems to want to start the ball rolling... (this is completely without coercion from Miguel!!(laugh) - this is the game that I enjoyed most from the recent batch of releases):

My pick for this month is: Ancient Aliens - The Roots of Time

I guess part of the reason I chose this game is because of where it seems to be headed as well as what it is - being the first episode of a series, it's pretty short.  However the aesthetics were wonderful, the puzzles were very well implemented, and the characters / story certainly made me want to see what happens in the next episode.  It's not perfect - the pixel hunting in one location frustrated me a little and the innuendo was unnecessary - but the game as a whole was extremely enjoyable and a very promising set up for what looks set to be an epic sci-fi adventure set on a background of jazz music.

"Ancient Aliens - The Roots of Time follows the exploits of a jazz musician whose life turns upside down when his father dies.  It's a traumatic event in itself. but when people start showing up and and being intensely interested in the research that his father had sent him, things start to get complicated.  Can the beautiful woman who claims to have been a colleague of his father's be trusted?  Who are the henchmen who are now after him?  Just what is his father's mysterious research project that can apparently change the world anyway?

Beautiful graphics, a moody jazz soundtrack and intelligent puzzles make this an encouraging start to what promises to be a very interesting game series.  There is some unnecessary innuendo and the game is admittedly very short, but it's highly enjoyable and certainly makes you want to find out what's happening in the next episode."

I vote for Sepulchre.
Here's what I think about this game:

Just finished this game, and I enjoyed it mostly because of the cool setting and ambiance. It kept me going until I knew what the hell was going on that train!
The mood is scary like twilight zone scary and the moving bag gave me the shivers.
Backgrounds art and character art are all high quality and the music was fitting for the genre and slow tempo of the game.
Voice work was a nice asset to the game, it's always cool to have them. I'd say they do the job well.
I could have had more story given to me but after playing it I didn't feel disappointed regarding that aspect.
There's a unsettling feeling along the game that kind of transported to "The Shining" movie and that is something hard to achieve with a minimalistic structure like Sepulchre. Bravo!
The puzzles weren't really puzzles in difficulty but simply a way to "hold" the player from completion and I think this was the only "weak" point of this game.
There are some easily fixed bugs as well that were already mentioned but nothing that really stopped my immersion on the plot.

My overall feeling of the game was pretty good and I wish it could have be longer. Although every minute of it is played with that good uncertainty and thrill. A good short game with high quality production that every one should play.

I wanted to suggest "Emily Enough: Imprisoned" for Pick of the month. :)
Played it long ago though, probably it is worth to replay and see if I still like it... ummm... enough (heh).
(But it has a pretty high rating anyway)

I vote for Skumring. It doesn't seem to have much plays (at least on this database), nor does it have a rating yet.

Quote from: About the game
When a beautiful dame in distress enters gumshoe Cooper Chutney's office, asking for help to investigate her husbands infidelity, something didn't seem right. Why would anyone cheat on such beautiful broad, he thought? Little did he know that this seemingly simple case would lead him down a spiral into the darkest depths of Port Horizon.

SeamanNaranja's Skumring is a 1950's Noir point and click adventure set in the sleepless city of Port Horizon. A city on the verge of moral collapse.

Step into the shoes of a PI yearning to prove himself in this slick, contemporary tale of gangsters, greed and goons.

With classic comic book-esque cutscenes, full voice acting, varied jazz/classical soundtrack, intelligent writing and 3+ hours of gameplay, this is certainly a must play for any adventure gamer.

Probably could be written about better, but it's all I got right now ;).

If you could turn back time, what would you do differently? You are Elle, a young and naive wizard's apprentice on your way for your routine potions lesson. As you arrive to bask in the glory of your teacher's infinite knowledge, the last thing you expect is for your trusty mentor to be overcome and kidnapped by none other than an evil warlock! Worse still, you end up locked up in his house yourself! Well, kind of. By use of your intuition, and with the help of a boisterous dragon, you must find a way to rescue your tutor and discover the mystique of the Time Stone in this modern day throw-back adventure, reminiscent of 90's adventure gaming's heyday. The fate of the world is in your hands...

Ponch,
iconic master pieces more often become cult artwork than something praised by the common folk.

With no benefit whatsoever for me I invite every reader of this thread to try out the Barn Runner series. Why?
Because its creator is a talented cow artist with broad skills from design, artwork and story telling.
If you still wonder why to play the Barn Runner series, then don't forget that the cow creator draws the most perfect boobs ever made in video game history.

My pleasure! Definitely deserved pick of the month, really nice charm and plenty of skill executed in Time Stone :). Will you make a larger game including more adventures of the Time Stone? I hope so.

Seemed like a bit of a community decision, nah?

I'd have a proposal, but it is soooo old, from an era where saturated colours were still hip.

Any other input? I thought of the Bunker, a quite old, quite enjoyable production. But maybe it's too old?

edit, tentative teaser, just in case:
There's nothing worse than being stuck in a bunker while playing golf, you know? Well, apart from being stuck in the very same bunker when a wizard decides to trap you there forever by miniaturising you! Hermits communities, talking skulls... this heap of sand is full of assorted weirdness! Escaping won't be easy: help Mike and his trusty club beat Manlocke!

I always thought of Pick of the Month as a sort of showcase of cool games you might've missed when they came out, or that may have slipped through the cracks, so I don't see why The Bunker should be too old to be acceptable.
In the same vein, a pretty short game that I'd suggest: Captain Cringe
The ultimate Professional Amateur

Now, with his very own game: Alien Time Zone

While all your proposals would be great to be pick of the month, I too want to travel back in time and resurrect a graphic novel master piece:
Barn Runner 1 - The Armaggedon Eclair.

Well written, great drawings, a sci-fi story reminiscent of R.Scott's cult movie with added tons of humour and twists like a pretzel!

Okay, here follows a teaser if whoever is in charge and Ponch of course approves of it.

Initially a parody of Blade Runner, as it progresses it forms into something else entirely. Ponch released a few episodic short games, before releasing Barn Runner: Forever Friday Part 1, showing that the universe was already well-fleshed. Words and sentiments, can't describe the craftsmanship that Ponch will always deny, if ever attributed concerning the story elements resolving around the Barn Runner Universe. As Pythagoras once said "The beginning is half of the whole", and this holds true for the Armageddon Eclair. Sci-fi dystopian neo-noir 80s retro good-cop vs bad-cop boogie dance anti-hero SAGA; or Barn Runner.

A new month!

I'm not too happy about demos being chosen, but we also had them before, I guess. Maybe pick "Donald Dowell" from the same author instead?

Anyway, if someone writes a nice teaser, I'll set the new pick.

I will once again push the Bunker.

Great, just great. These days a man can't play golf without a wizard miniaturizing him! Thank you Manlocke, now I am stuck in this bunker!
The garish palette of this game will immediately bring you back to the 90s, along with some great humor, a desert to explore, sassy skulls and many other quite talkative but less than cooperative characters.
Help Ronan club his way out of the bunker!


It's an exquisite game, but it's old too; take it not as a proposal, but just as a "filler", in case nobody comes up with anything.

I hope this promo will be up for the next selection candidate then:

Donald sat with glazed eyes. He was retired. He rocked in his chair. His wife shouted at him to paint the fence. He rocked. He read his favorite books over and over. His wife shouted at him to do something, anything. Donald rocked. And as he rocked a spark grew under the chair in which he sat. With every rock the spark found kindling in the recesses of his still youthful mind. That kindling grew into a fire which could not be stopped. Donald knew he had to go back to work! But not just any old menial work. The work he had dreamed of since he was a kid! Donald stood up from his rocker. And then at last: HE ROCKED!

Second ACRONYM.

Obligatory blurb:

"Orion needs milk, and it needs it in the next 12 hours! A challenging boardgame, ACRONYM is a testament to AGS versatility. Battle, outwit, charm or use-alien-technology on pesky earthlings, abduct bovines, make it back to spaceship before time is up. Be prepared to restart often: strategy, tactics and a bit of luck are needed to get those precious proteins!"

Here I am with a teaser for Mudlarks, as promised, cat :-)

Mudlarks is a story of friendship, hidden secrets, and ghosts. Two friends are searching for treasures on the banks of the River Thames when they find a mysterious golden locket, containing old photos of a woman and a teenage girl. Days later, one of the friends, Vincent, goes missing - and it's up to you, Winston, to find him. The search will drag Winston into a world of paranormal and historical intrigue in a well written story, with interesting and varied puzzles. This is a full length game which has a unique quirky graphics and animation style, and gives the player the sense of something very strange happening under the surface of normality. Do give it a try!

Sorry for being a bit late :D

Since there were no valid suggestions for this month (random game name dropping without writing a teaser does not count (wrong)), I picked Red Hot Overdrive.

Edit: I had a quick view at Sepulchre and I will not set a game as pick that requires you to register with name and E-Mail address...

Nice pick, nice blurb, nice attitude towards users (not even a smiley by Tabby can describe my face when I was asked to enter personal info to download Sepulchre)!

fair enough about Sepulchure (I thought it had to be chosen before writing the teaser), certainly an odd download procedure. great choice in Red Hot Overdrive though!

I just wanted to point out that the latest (December) Pick of the Month game -  Aidas Strange Christmas - can't be downloaded. It was hosted on Game Front, but when trying to download, it says that the file can't be found, and there seem to be no alternative download options. I have already reported it on the game page, but as this title is quite visible right now, I thought I would also post about it here.

Thank you so much for the info! Shame on me for not testing the download before posting the game (had it on my disc already).

I updated the page with a link to a games archive page, I hope it is working now?

I don't know whether there are other games in the backlog, I am writing this
small stub so you can use it when you will see fit.

Sisyphus Reborn

A short game which explores the themes of life, eternity and the meaning
of our actions. An example of what the adventure game medium can achieve without
losing its characteristics, teeming with ideas but not overwhelming the player.

Visitor 3! Played it, loved it the the most of the Visitor trilogy. Another one that You might want to take a look at is The Knobbly Crook -- I haven't played that one yet, so I can't say anything about it (other than that it has insanely gorgeous graphics!).

"The third installment of the darkly comedic series about Moss -- the universe's most accidentally lucky field agent -- sends him on his most dangerous mission yet. Visitor 3 is bigger, better, funnier -- and scarier. There's lots of green blood, pink goo, black tentacles and other terrifying appendages -- and a head in a jar that's not only quite friendly, but also not at all fazed by its current situation."

Sorry...I just added a quick fix to your text...But I agree that this should be pick of the month for sure!!!

Re: Community "pick of the month"

There is only one option for june's pick: Camp 1. An instant classic if there ever was one.


Life at Camp 1, a geological trial drilling site, hasn't been easy in the past . But, somehow, things got even worse. What kind of future will await the four inmates of the camp?

"Camp 1" is an outstanding science fiction game. Every single aspect is excellent. Fantastic visuals, intense atmosphere, clever puzzles, wonderful colours - the limited palette works really well. Anyone who hasn't played this yet, go and do so. You'll love it.


(If you're going to pick this: Asking a natural speaker to have a look at my ramblings might be a good idea .  ;)
Or better: have someone write a bit more about the story. I'm not good with that kind of thing.)

I would like to vote for Ouroboros: Sacrifice, for pick of the month July. This is the teaser I wrote:

Venture into a snowy, cold world; put your mask on; close your eyes; listen to the wind blowing. Imagine Myst, but with a tint of horror. Now, solve those puzzles already!

I'm nominating "Jacqueline White; Bad Trouble in the Red Desert" for the pick of the month (for October as I heard from cat) and here is my blurb:
Quote
Books are just words, right? Movies are just single frames played really fast, right? AGS games are just a bunch of rooms and objects, characters, and whatever tied together by some code, right?

We all know how each works, especially AGS, but sometimes....and only sometimes in a very long while...somebody manages to combine the words in a book, the frames of a movie, or the structure of AGS in just the right way to create magic...

The magic where the reader/viewer/player starts to forget the interface of words/images/game and makes the jump from their everyday reality into the world that the author has created for them...

This game falls solidly into the category of such magic...

The story, characters, gameplay, mystery, intrigue of this game just grabbed me instantly by the short and curlies and propelled me forwards. There was never a moment when I lost interest in knowing what the story was going to throw my way next...

And the puzzles: OMG BRILLIANT!!! Foreshadowing and logic used perfectly in almost every case!!!

GET IT OR REGRET IT!!!

I think that The Unprintable MAGENTA has to be played more than it has been played so far, so I wrote a teaser:

"Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No. It's a girl that turns things into a purplish-red color! It's a heroic adventure game for you to enjoy, with witty dialogues and unforgettable comic characters and - a lot of hilarious game over screens. So? What are you waiting for? Download it already!"

Hehehe you beat me in here...

Out Of Gas: A wonderfully calming and yet upbeat little adventure that begins when your car runs out of gas on the way home. Navigate a charming and bustling little city, that is however not without its own seamy underbelly, in your quest to simply return home. This is a game that should keep a smile on your face with its cheery tone, while at the same time presenting interesting puzzles, some eccentric characters, and a memorable playing experience.

(It was a tough choice between Creamville and Out Of Gas, but I figured Creamville is already getting quite a bit of outside recognition, while Out Of Gas deserves more...And we can just pick Creamville next month...(laugh) )

+1 for Toffee Trouble in Creamville.


Being a dunkin' funride throughout, this coming-of-age story shines with tasty characters and graphics so sweet that you'll be left drooling over your screen. The low difficulty and various puzzles make it perfectly suited for young adventurers to get their teeth into.

The AGS awards gave me the opportunity to play games I missed. I'd like to submit Waiting for the loop for the next pick :

Presented in a "choose your own adventure" style, Waiting for the loop features diffrerent outcomes that encourage replayability.
Well-written dialogs supported by spot-on dubbing emphasize the importance of your choices in this striking tale about AI.

July has been rich in good games. For August pick, I suggest Terror of the Vampire!

Embark alongside Dr Ego Goodmind on his journey through vaguely Eastern Europe to teach superstitious locals the benefits of modern psychiatry.
With art worthy of the Great Mouse Detective and a story Gelliant Gutfright would bite for, this game is the perfect remedy to your pathological need for proactive inactivity.

Ah, I forgot to do the pick - I should make it a habit to set it in advance. I wanted to pick "Hang on" from last MAGS, but you were quicker ;)

Edit: Done.

Good idea. I have a proposition for a description:

When a game called "hang on" features a lonely mountain cabin on its title screen, you know that it won't talk about telephone queues.
Don't worry though, this lighthearted adventure won't involve any woman falling to her death because of a defective harness.

I would like to vote for Loslems "The House without Windows". It's not perfect but extremely ambitious and the selfmade creepy soundtrack is superb.

Not that I contest your idea Kumpel, but I get an error when I try to unzip the file linked in the thread of the game. "Archive is either in unknown format or damaged". There's no AGS page either.

WinRAR. I've tried several times with both versions (german / english). No way to unzip the 28.7 Mo file :sad:

I can only set games as PotM that have a game DB entry.

Got it working, thanks.
I'm probably not the only one using WinRAR for .rar files though :P

Since it's already late in October, maybe we can choose another pick in the meantime.

Some good games that I've played recently :
- Fun, Sun and Mishaps.
- Don't worry, I'll bring the beer.
- On leaving the building.
- The Elevator.
- The Execution of Anne Boleyn .
- 10 Ways from Sunday.

As always: write a teaser and I'll put it up :)

Sorry that I don't have much time at the moment to do it myself :-[

I can write a blurb if necessary but I was waiting for opinions since it's supposed to be a community pick.

"10 Ways From Sunday" added to my list.

Since nobody wrote, I propose On Leaving The Building :

Have you ever wondered what the King was up to in his final years? Probably not since we'd rather remember him as the legendary crooner he once was. In stark contrast, BRANE gives us control of an overweight drug-addicted Elvis about to... about to what exactly?

Thanks Creamy!

It's called "Community Pick" because anyone from the AGS community can pick a game and write a teaser. There doesn't have to be a community vote on this. That's also why the picker's name is shown together with the pick ;)
