Thanks for the info.  Please do continue making new posts though, as that way I know when I've worked my way through the games to be updated.

Here are some more games with broken links, followed by the correct link.

Chick Chaser

A Christmas Blunder
https://archive.org/details/a-christmas-blunder

A Christmas Tale Demo
https://archive.org/details/a-christmas-tale-demo

Christmas Quest 1, 2 and 3 - The link to game 2 gives a 404, while 1 and 2 goes to the main page, and there is some searching needed to find the games. I suggest the article with download options for each:

Not sure whom to address this, there's a game called "Hit The Freak" which download is not available in the database anymore, but I have a download link attached by user to a bug report a while ago: https://github.com/adventuregamestudio/ags/files/3955030/git.tar.gz
(Don't know how long this link will be available, it's hosted by github now and is automatically named archive containing another archive...)

Sophia McGrath and the Strange Invitation
https://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/site/games/game/2455-sophia-mcgrath-and-the-strange-invitation/

The game has no download link, hence it is listed with 0 downloads. But the link to the game's homepage takes us to the itch page. It looks like these two have been mixed up.

It seems like Space Quest 7 Mania Episode 2 has two entries in the database:
https://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/site/games/game/2446-sq7-mania-episode-2/    (Which gives me an error message about a forbidden site)
and
https://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/site/games/game/2472-space-quest-7-mania-episode-2/   (Where the download link works fine)

The earlier of the two says it's a beta version.  We do sometimes end up with separate entries for a demo and its full game too.  I'll have a think about how to combine the two.

I cannot download from the earliest of the two and don't recall if I have been able to do so before. The second one is clearly also the beta - the file name is sq7mania2_betaversion.rar

Off-Topic: ShowHide
I'm not too concerned about demos having their own entry. Frankly I just wondered if not more demos were eligible for nominations in the "Best demo" category. Those without separate entries seem to not be included in the list, and those with a demo as one of the downloading choices will be easy to overlook. Then again, I don't really know if a full release is supposed to cancel out the demo with regards to nominations. A commercial game with a polished demo could well release them simultaneously.

Seems to be a duplicate.
Both AGS Databse pages of this game offer the exact same download.
Both download files have the exact same filesize and have the same upload date and time (as shown on both mediafire pages).

I'm not sure this is the right place to post this, but when I search my games on the games page, there's a game that doesn't get listed.  ???

https://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/site/games/game/2443-over-roger-mags-april-2020-version-/

No matter if I type Sandra or Sandra T. Almeida it only shows on the Quick list below the search box, but as as soon as I hit enter or the button to search and get my list, this game isn't listed. Which is odd.  :-\

On another note, entering my nickname on the search, shows a bunch of game where I'm not the author, just a collaborator (like beta tester and the likes)... still the above game is also not shown.
There are those who believe that life here began out there...
