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

Michael Starmik is a citizen of a small colony world that was part of ASKA Trading League. His planet was recently annexed by FEM, also known as Matriarchate. For a long time, he felt like something is missing in his life. That was the reason why he enlisted on the scientific expedition beyond the borders of his solar system. Unfortunately his low social status only earned him position of low-class worker. So far he did not discovered anything, due to constant overtime work. But that will soon change.



While creating this game I was inspired mostly by two games: Legend of Kyrandia and Beneath a Steel Sky. What I liked about some adventure games (LoK, Space Quest) was the fact, that game would let you ahead even without some important items. That often lead to frustration, as you realised hours later and had to reload (if you could). But I still liked the fact that you were challenged in a way. Exploring your surroundings more carefully, forcing you to THINK.

But we have moved forward from this, making adventure games less of a torture and more enjoyable. So I decided for a compromise. There are items you will be able to use later, that you might miss at first, or not realised their importance, but they serve only to unlock one more cheesy joke, or some additional lore information or helping you ease one of the puzzles. But they will not affect main storyline so you will still be able to play through main story without much troubles. But if you want to learn more, or laugh more - try more.

This is the first part of planned series, that will introduce to you main character and some game mechanics. Enjoy the game!

I really enjoyed this game. It was a fun space adventure which I think most people would enjoy.

Solid space-adventure game, with lots of inventory puzzled and some weird NPCs.
