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 Cup Not serious entertainment
2 Cups A reasonable game, worth a try
3 Cups A good game, worth playing
4 Cups A great game, well worth your time
5 Cups An 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 underrated!

(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 inattentive husband returns home one ordinary day only to find that his wife has gone missing.


He seems to remember she might have said something yesterday, unfortunately he can't remember. Now he has to look for things that might clue him in on why his wife is missing.

AGS Panel Review

"Some nice writing, and an engagingly simplistic art style, help this short game rise above it faults. Puzzles can be weak, and some vague direction hinders the experience."

Nice little domestic mystery with two endings. I enjoyed the simplistic graphic style and the idea of trying to trigger memories, even if it stretches credibility a bit.

Short & sweet, with some very logical and easy to solve puzzles. A quality game, give it a go!

Lots of simple puzzles. Fun to play and can be completed quickly. The main character could use some more depth, but otherwise it was nice.

Very nice game. I love the graphic style and also the restore-your-memory kind of puzzles. I also loved the ending, very charming.

A new version where I have fixed some issues is now available for download.

Wonderful short game. Still it is not too hard to complete fast, the puzzles made sense and I was never stuck.

The graphics are fast done, but okay. I like the interaction with things.

See the forums for some bugs.
