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

The bloated midpoint of the Barn Runner series!
What starts as a terrible day for Prick Peckard unexpectedly turns into a terrible day for everyone when the world suddenly ends.


Barn Runner: The Forever Friday is a series of medium length games (five chapters in all) that will be released quarterly between July 2008 and July 2009. All but one are a mix of classic adventure gaming with arcade sequences sprinkled throughout. However, the arcades are completely optional.

The complete Forever Friday will feature three player characters, bizarre dream sequences, and the occasional bare bottom (so be warned, easily offended: you'll see more of Prick than anyone ever needed to!).

So if saving the world in your underpants sounds like the sort of game you've been looking for, then ask yourself one question...

Why haven't you CLICKED to download chapter one?!?

AGS Panel Review

"This edition of Barn Runner sees Prick go from one bad situation to another, and like a true glutton for punishment he comes back for more! With considerably improved (and much, much longer) cutscenes than the previous game, Barn Runner 5 establishes itself as a witty, entertaining (if light on gameplay) entry in the series, and the verbose writing is well worth enduring for the punchlines."

5 people commented on this game (newest first):

There are more and more cutscenes but the story gets deeper. To my mind, Barn Runner has never been so interesting.
A lot of revelations here (especially in the final interview).

Okay, a new Barn Runner.. Graphics beautiful, story very good, but really, Prick becomes just too much of a loser here, and besides, long commentaries are well and good...up to a point. I went beyond that point and found myself BORED, and fast-clicking through the dialogues. Just too much cut-scenes and too little real game.

I've come quite late to the Barn Runner series, but when I played The Armageddon Eclair a while back I was instantly hooked, and soon went through all the titles so far, in what I think is by far the most ambitious AGS gaming series to date.

However, I always got the feeling that the series was holding back on something, waiting to tell a more epic story, and with FF that's finally here: we're starting to see more of the world which Ponch has obviously put a huge amount of thought, care, and effort into. Even now, though, I still get the feeling he's only just getting started, and I can't wait to see what happens next.

Great humour as always, hugely fun cutscenes, roll on October! Thanks buddy!

I went to the website and played all the barnrunner games in order. I love the story and Prick is a great central character that has me laughing the whole time. Great work!

This game is just amazing. All the things that Prick says are hilarious. And who can forget the Night Chickens?

I love at the end, you can pick which stall to eat from, and your choice is even reflected when you sit down.

Excellent graphics and music.

A wonderful game from start to finish.
