Sidebar bottom
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

A story driven point and click adventure in which a man examines his life over the course of 80 years.
Made in less than a week for a game jam in Portland, Oregon.
This is the game jam version of Throw Me in the River, which can no longer be downloaded from Adventure Game Studio.
In 2020 Throw Me in the River received a ground up remake, and more information (and links to the remake) can be found on Side Group's website at www.sidegroupgames.com

I think the plot is complex, layered and well thought out. Very experimental and cleverly pulled off. I enjoyed it.
I don't think it's a controversial game but it will be interesting to see how others view it.

It's a well-written but depressing compilaton of the sad moments in life.
I like how the choices of the player are integrated in the story though.
