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!

AGS Panel Review

"This game has beautiful graphics, as you'd expect from Ben. It's very short and is missing a real purpose. With very few interactions and easy puzzles. Definitely worthwhile in playing if you have a few minutes to spare though."

5 people commented on this game (newest first):

Seems like I found this short game much more impressive and accomplished than most people.

The main sci-fi plot and the way the a.i. character is used might be a bit cliche, but I found both the atmosphere and the relationship between the main humanoid characters really enjoyable. Actually probably those 2 characters, the color palette, and the open ending are the elements that make me remember Hope fondly and as a game worth playing.

Also, incredibly polished for a 48 hours effort.

Underdeveloped, but graphics & music make up for that. Dialogue is "uneven" (some important NPCs talk way less than it would be reasonale, some the other way around) but well written.

Play it!

Extremely short and easy game, I'd say even demo game, with a very nice graphics. I reminds me of The Dig :)

Graphics almost made up for the easy puzzles, unoriginal story and short game play.

Nice game, but it could have been much more. Looking out to future collaborations!
