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!

This is more a short story adaptation than a game with actually just one real puzzle. It has a nice atmosphere with great use of dialog portraits.

A great game and a fantastic adaption. I love the art style!

Nice little MAGS game that makes you wish there was more to it. The way the portraits move while they're talking is pretty haunting, and it fits the game well...creepy.

An excellent adaptation of H.P.Lovecraft's short story. This proves how video games are powerful in terms of expression, and accessible. Writing a short story or a novel IS almost not so different from making a video game. The difference lies in what way the reader or the player experiences the story.

A fairly good very short and a mysterious artistic story game

Lovely atmosphere and graphics, a bit to short, which is always a good sign. ;-)

I felt like I was back with my mates in high-school playing Call Of Cthulhu the dice and paper RPG!!!

Great game!!!
