Another one:
http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/site/games/game/1531 => https://www.agsarchives.com/game/584de1a5bc8005243f4637a7

I can't remember, but is there a page to view games with broken download links?
With the help of other AGSers I've collected quite a few missing games, and I should really get around to adding them to AGSA.
Would be nice to have a list of games missing download links to use as reference.

Ok, this entry is weird:

No clue who made this but I guess it should be deleted?

Power Nap was on the list AGA posted the other day. I checked it and it leads to the Gamejolt page as I intended. I wonder how many other games are on the list which shouldn't be.

my sherlock senses tell me it's an accidental doublepost, just count down one number in the URL and voila 8-)

Sorry, I know this is an old thread, but since it's the same problem I figure no point in making a new thread.

I noticed my game, Out of Gas, is marked as broken, but the link works just fine (Mediafire). Maybe someone either hates MediaFire or they clicked during a down time?

Maybe there could be a button/icon on the editing page of each game, where it shows the game has been marked at having a broken link, to which the game author could then check the link and click it "Fixed" or "report fixed"... ?
I only noticed cause I was looking on the games list for a game... I don't see any "broken link" when on the Games page nor have I gotten a notification about it being broken.

I'm planning to add and revise various things like that in the next version of the site.  I'll be sure to include your suggestion!

I would like to second Cassiebsg's suggestion - exactly the same thing has happened to my game "Adventure Island" (http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/site/games/game/1688/).  The link functions perfectly when I try it.
