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

**UPDATE**
Version 1.10 has been released and available on my site. Leon found a bunch of bugs, crashes, and I added some additional content to the endgame, end cutscene, put some extra differentiation into the two endings, and make the credits a little prettier.

-----

While visiting your cousin in Leeds Point, New Jersey, a neighbor child goes missing. Being in the FBI (though a desk-jockey, not the field-op type), you are thrust into the middle of the investigation. Did the legendary creature take the child, as the mother claims? Or is something more nefarious at hand in the sleepy southern New Jersey pine barrens?

AGS Panel Review

"An interesting story is let down by a patchwork visual style, and an overall lack of visual clarity. Cursor/hotspot interactions could use some definition, but largely work well enough. Writing is above average, despite a few minor typos. "

I really liked this game. Very good writing & an intriguing story.

I've seen several comments on the contrast between the sprites and the backgrounds and this is something which I usually mind, but I actually thought it worked out well in the Murran Chronicles. The backgrounds add to the atmosphere and the drawn sprites didn't distract me from it.
The one thing I did mind is the portrait of the main character, who, possibly because of the weird muppet mouth speaking animation, looks about 20 years younger than he's supposed to be.

Great start for a series, be sure to check out Episode 2 which is bigger & better.

An excellent first game! Graphics aside, Murran Chronicles 1 has a lot going for it - good puzzles, an excellent, well-researched story, and good character "voices." I only hope the main character develops a little more over time; he seems a tad bland.

Curious about this game. I enjoyed the story, even if the game is a little bit short.

A lot of pictures, characters ripped from various sources, that does .. euh ... weird , but efficient. Nice game btw, will play the second chapter soon, to discover improvements

Go on !
