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 mystery story about family, desperation and the weather, set to the beat of an indie adventure game.


***

Richard and Alice are prisoners. Both their cells have a leather sofa and a state-of-the-art computer. But only Richard’s has a TV.


Outside, the snow falls. It has done for some time. Elsewhere, they say, parts of the world have been rendered an inhospitable desert, the earth parched and cracked. People live in the zones now. The lucky ones, anyway.


Richard and Alice have secrets.

AGS Panel Review

"This game has somewhat inconsistent graphics quality and the occasional (non-game breaking) bug, but that doesn't stop it from being an incredibly worthwhile and heartfelt story to experience. Some may feel that the puzzle difficulty (lets just say you're not likely to be reaching for a walkthrough a lot) was too low, but that's probably for the best in service of the story."

2 people commented on this game (newest first):

Good game, overcomes amateurish graphics with superior story telling such that you don't really notice them. Some of the puzzles were odd enough to require a walkthrough which was a little annoying. The various endings are all bleak and ominous in keeping with the post-apocalyptic setting.

This game has great story telling and dialog. It is very atmospheric, also with fitting music and sounds. The graphics vary in quality - the speach portraits were great, but some backgrounds and character art are poor and animation is sparse. The few puzzles were easy and well integrated with the story.

This game has a very interesting setting and excels in storytelling and touching dialog. Enjoy a fantastic atmosphere if you can get by the mediocre graphics.
