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

A Dynamic Short Film

Focality is an experimental interactive movie designed to take your mind off how well things are going. Turn off the lights, put on headphones, and play the game in full screen for maximum effect. Written and created in 24 hours.

NOTE: This is not, strictly speaking, a game, but rather machinima created in AGS that uses the dynamic parts of programming and player experience to enhance the show.

at first i got the impression this is something very different and can be a good "game".
then after getting insulted and reading that i am useless and stuff i don't quite know what the point in this "thing" was. i tried to recapture and find a line in this "game", it has a good point and 2 very bad ones (the end, too), so after a good start and a terrible ending, i wouldn't recommend playing it, although it has an effect on you you should check out for the first 2 mins.

Focality is hard to describe. It features an interesting approach to draw the player into an interactive narrative. It made feel very uncomfortable which probably means it succeded. Graphics and sound do support this very well.
Give this one a try if you're into experimental gameplay and storytelling mechanics.
