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!
Merry Christmas, Alfred Robbins
About this gameYou're Alfred Robbins. You're 42 years old and work at a local post office. It's the night before Christmas, and you've just recently returned home after working overtime. Neither you nor your wife has had the time to make the proper arrangements for a Christmas celebration, and you've decided to use this last night to surprise your family. Times have been rough, so make do with what you have and celebrate the holidays to your best effort.
Two weeks production time, then a few additional days fixing all the horrid bugs!

AGS Panel Review
"Chilling, depressing, but well executed. Story may leave some players cold, but it's point is effectively made."
8 people commented on this game (newest first):
On the other hand, it has a rather awkward interface and the safe puzzle (one of the first you need to solve) is completely unfair. Finally, I felt the chilling conclusion was somewhat out of place.
Nevertheless, because of the atmosphere, the music and the unusual take on Christmas theme, I still would consider Alfred Robbins a must-play.
I myself found no bugs at all.
The graphics are very well done as is the scripting and the ending is just WOW!
I definitely recommend this one.
