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

Shortly after your adventure with the mystery in Montana, you are given a case involving mysterious deaths in Landsdowne, Massachusetts. The bodies of two men in their early twenties have been found recently, and according to local authorities both dead men looked to be in their seventies when their bodies were found. There is no explanation as both men were thought to be healthy, and in the prime of their lives. Add to this the odd reports of a pack of strange animals roaming the town at night, and you have your work cut out for you.

Is there some sort of vampire creature on the loose as some of the town rumors suggest? What is behind the rumors of odd goat-like creatures that have been seen after nightfall? Are the two related? You are thrown into the midst of an age long battle between good and evil as you investigate the case of the Life Drinker of Landsdowne.

I've just spent the last two days playing through the Murran Chronicles and:

What an amazing journey from Part 1 (rough as hell but with a heart of gold), through to Part 2 (some rough corners smoothed off and some character dev), and ending in Part 3 here...which...

I would have to say is a MASTERPIECE!!!

The best part about playing all three was to see the huge leaps and bounds a serious dev can make with their craft if they stick at it. If you sat 10 people down to play Part 1 and Part 3 I would say that 9 out of 10 would be amazed that they were made by the same person.

I did get the feeling that the ending stages got a bit rushed, perhaps by RL pressures on the author to release the game, but even then I did not mind as the game was so SOLID: I almost never felt at a loss about what I was supposed to do next, and yet the game also let me just do my own thing if I didn't want to follow the "objectives", and even provided some nice easter eggs along the way to reward me for straying off the beaten path

After 2 previous games i expected more from this game. First half of the game is interesting and well written. But after that there's too much fantasy in my opinion. Anyway the game is quite good and I recommend it.

The game was really well written, and the story was very deep and complex. The animation was a bit choppy at times and some stuff didn't mesh well for me graphically, but overall it was a very nice and polished game.

I really liked this game. The story was really good and it maker put lots of time into it with exactness.

This game was really amazing. Some of the dialog driven puzzles were a bit long-winded at times, but the atomosphere, pacing and writing were excellent. I recommend this to everyone looking for a great game to play.

I've been looking forward to this game as I already liked the first two episodes a lot. And I wasn't disappointed: each episode is exponentially better than the one before! I thoroughly enjoyed this excellent game. It's a great story that develops in a well paced, intruiging and atmospheric flow. Thank you for this gem of a game!

A really good game, really enjoyable and well made. Only the end when it turned into some arcade style fighting game put me off and I didn't finish it. Arcade and adventure games don't mix in my opinion.

I just finished this game and I really loved it. The art and music were good, but the story and writing were really amazing. Good job, and I will be playing the first 2 games now.
