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 New Familiar is a dialogue-heavy adventure game set in a dream-like high school. It is designed to be very replayable, and it is centered around exploration and change. The game can be very depressing, but it doesn't have to be. The player influences the story's direction, even when they don't have direct control.

Walk around, click on things, enter and leave doors, see the colors change. Advertised as text-heavy, but there's more text on this page than in the whole game. Left wondering me if I'm not artsy enough to understand what was going on, or whether I should have been on drugs to enjoy the time I spent with this "game".

Pretentious, keeps you from knowing what you're doing, but it doesn't seem to deliver any knowledge. Instead of piquing my interest, it made me not care about the character. I don't think there was a story.
