AGS Panel Review
"This game narrowly made three cups thanks to a strong soundtrack and well made backgrounds. It has a certain cinematic touch and manages to set an immersive mood. However, it also has a high number of weaknesses. Narration is in third person but occasionally slips into first, and its attempt at humour can be rather irritating. The protagonist comes across as male chauvinist and self absorbed. In moments of fourth-wall-breaking, he complains that the narrator is a bad comedian, but has basically the same jargon himself (=sexual innuendos and puns). If you can handle less than excellent dialogues and characterisation, the game is a rather ambitious effort."

Only Game developer ever, to make mention of DJango Reinhart. Lot's of insight into the Jazz world. One of my favorites.
I think that three blue cups are not enough.
It's a game of great charm and great immersion.
I think the panelist who reviewed this failed to get the satirical intent of the author in depicting the characters (or maybe I see things where there are any); download it and judge by yourself!
With great visuals, character animations, cinematic storylines and some good music, Ancient Aliens has a lot to offer. Some of the text feels a little unpolished, and the game feels fairly short, but they are minor drawbacks to a game that is well worth checking out
