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!

A very scary little game! Enjoyed it very much.
The intro was well done, but I felt like the two graphic styles didn't quite match.
Other than that, graphics was really impressive! And I loved the music. And it was very well written. On to the sequel!

Great short game! Lots of fun!

Absolutely fantastic!!! I wish it was longer,
Great atmosphere, and it's actually the first
3d first person view adventure game I loved
to watch. Great graphics, great sounds, great
dialogs. For me it's just perfect, I just wish it
was longer :P

I'm now playing Unbound.. :D

I played again this one before the sequel. Nothing more to say that I'm waiting the third vignette! Really good!

Thanks. :)

Keep an eye on the Games in Production thread for further updates about Unbound, the second Wound Vignette, due for release soon.

Thanks again.

Just finished it. Dang it's creepy! I love the atmosphere, the graphics, sounds.. Everything! I'd love to see more :-)

Thanks, everybody, for the positive messages.
It's very encouraging when people enjoy something enough to post about it. :)

As for a sequel, the short answer is yes.

Yes, the larger story has yet to be told and yes it will be.

When it will be is another matter ;)

Thanks again.

This is the best AGS game I've ever played. The ending left me thirsting for more. Is a part 2 in the works?
2007-02-23 05:30:35 by mr.me
Too bad that it is so short. When it started to be really interesting, it is the end...
Further episod to come?

This is a wonderful game, I was really sucked in to it. I would love to see a longer game leading on from this, the story has me really intrigued now!

Great experience! A blend of graphic novel and adventure. Very short but the author knows how to create suspense. It was really like playing a mystery thriller and, if it was longer, it could easily compete with every comercial game. Puzzles were not too hard but fun and music greatly supported the atmosphere. I Also liked the very professional gfx (the drawings at the beginning were a great addition to the original). Great work LimpingFish, keep on making such intense games!!!
