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

Earwig has been locked up in a nut house for too long. He (along with a little friend) has decided that enough is enough. Time for some chaos! (Contains some, er, bad things. Kids, Earwig is not a role model!)

AGS Awards

Won, Best Supporting Character in an AGS Game 2002

18 people commented on this game (newest first):

One of my favorites (although it's way too short!). Great humor, great characters, great graphics, and great music even. Top accolades to this game.

At default the game runs at too low resolution (320x200) and the graphics are really mushy. You can change to 640x480 by making a shortcut of the earwig.exe, go to it's properties and adding: --setup in the end of the target field.

Nightmares.. is that person serious? But yeah, it was disturbing in a funny way. Fun game.

That little satan dude is badass!

I just downloaded the game and the graphics is all flickery and it won't let me start. *sigh* So far, so not good.

I liked the concept and the imaginary friend, just wish the game was longer. Perhaps an extended version of the same game, showing Earwig's adventures outside of the asylum would be great...

Very cool, very original!
IĀ“d like to have more of this music!

Very cool, need more of the little red man!!

Good for a short game, but as others have said, a bit violent. Loved the imaginary friend.

A deliciously devlish black comedy. One of the best short AGS games.

Recommended for those who wants to play a evil role and loves cute graphics.

this game is what inspired me to start using ags! THIS IS TOTALLY SWEET!
2003-02-09 06:48:13 by earwigz
This game has the spirit of cold violence that will leave some people shaking. That game gave me nightmares! A very nice little game.
2003-02-08 04:09:38 by Sashasatan
