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

Help a character to solve his task using some inventory, exploring some locations and interacting with other characters!
Well, there's really not much to say about the story in particular, it is far from being well-thought, doesn't feature an elaborate fantasy world or background story, it's more or less just the plain adventure, and highly random as such.
This however is due to the fact that the story wasn't written by a human story writer, but by a rather stupid artificial intelligence I wrote.
The name of the fictional world, "Otubania", was also generated by that program, and "Tales of Otubania" was the most original title I could think of without giving the story away.

The game is short, you'll probably need 10-30 minutes depending on how much you like to explore the locations and possible interactions.

The game features full voice acting, which I think adds to the fun at some points.




Please report any bugs etc. in the forum (see website URL field) where I'm notified of new posts, or directly to my e-mail adress.

AGS Panel Review

"More an exercise in random comedy, rather than a game, Otubania scores points for it's entertaining dialog, and hilariously dubious voice work."

6 people commented on this game (newest first):

The random plot worked fine for me. Nice characters, names, funny dialogs. Had some really good laugh. Id like to play more of this.

Funniest game I've played in quite a while. Totally random plot but quite amusing dialogs, monologues and characters.

Recommended!

Pointless, but somehow manages to be above average.

Plot randomly generated so it's understandably weak. And since this is the creators first game, naturally very short and art is far from perfect. But despite all that the creators sense of humour and dialogue writing ability shines through to create a very funny game, with lots of unique messages for trying out weird things. So I recommend trying EVERYTHING to get all the funny messages.

Despite the flaws, definitely worth the time it takes.
