The AGS Panel is a team of AGS forum veterans who play all of the games here, and give them ratings from one to five cups. The rating system is as follows:
1 CupNot serious entertainment
2 CupsA reasonable game, worth a try
3 CupsA good game, worth playing
4 CupsA great game, well worth your time
5 CupsAn outstanding, must-play game!
Feel free to disagree with the panel's rating, and please don't be offended if you think your game has been under-rated!

(Why has my game been rated 1 cup?)

Close window
If your game has been rated 1 cup, please don't be offended! It's common for your first game release to get a 1-cup rating, due to the game having a lack of polish and flair -- which is understandable, because you're just getting started!

Please understand that the main purpose of the ratings is to help potential game players find high quality, bug-free games to play. You've probably learnt a lot about AGS as a result of making your first game -- so why not use that knowledge to start afresh, and do even better with your next game!

About this game

You play the role of a 20 year old American called Jason Hart. Jason is a high school dropout who works as an office boy. All that is about to change in the beginning of our story, when he is approached by a mysterious man who seems to know more about him than Jason does himself.
The man claims to represent an organization that recruits people who are believed to have "special abilities". Those abilities could be telepathy, telekinesis, or other extraordinary powers. Jason has had such an ability all his life, fearing to admit it to himself, let alone others. He accepts the job offer for this organization, which is called "Diamonds in the Rough".
The story begins as soon as Jason moves to a town in the Midwest, where he will be employed doing this mysterious "work". He will soon start to wonder who he is really working for, and what the purpose of the organization is.

This is a 3rd person, point & click adventure game with a user friendly interface that will feel both familiar and innovative and an intriguing storyline that will keep you glued to your seat until you witness the ending... which you will never forget.

Ever wondered what the character you were controlling was thinking? In DITR, you will be able to access Jason's thoughts and use them as actual objects in the game, just like inventory items!

The game is commercial. Visit Atropos Studios if you want to buy it. The download link points to a demo.

The game received very positive reviews by the majority of AG web sites. You can read them here: http://www.atropos-studios.com/diamonds.html

The tasks available in the demo are too few to evaluate correctly the game.

This game was very professional and fun to play. The music was good, the voice acting was decent (The fact that it even had voice acting is a plus), the story was interesting and the ending was unexpected.
