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

This is a demo of The Journey of Iesir. The game takes place in a land reminiscent of the medieval ages, yet has a story that integrates ideas as old as the legendary Vikings, and as modern as the hippie movement in the 1970's.

The player takes the role of Michael, a wandering playwright among other things, and he sees Iesir and its troubles through the fresh eyes of a stranger, yet he becomes pivotal to the events that unfold in Iesir. Seeking both adventure and inspiration for his new screenplay, under the guidance of his mysterious Mentor, Mikael seeks out a Viking called Daniel Trondhjemsfjord, who needs help with a task that seems adventurous. What seems like a simple quest of stealing a old Viking painting soon turns out to be more then Mikael could have ever imagined...

Who is his mysterious Mentor, who has set Mikael on a path that leads him to places he never imagined? How do the recent viking attacks along the coastline fit into Daniel's past, and Iesir's future? Why is there a demon-possessed, moose-headed alchemist in town? The game delivers a rich and detailed plot dealing with some hefty issues along with a a large dollop of humour. The Journey of Iesir is a tale of discovery and change on many levels.

This game is soo smooth! The font rendering is amazing and everything looks so good! I would love to know how all these smoothness was accomplished! The blur effect on the menu is super pretty. Teh game looks like a cartoon.

This game is a sensational achievement, unfortunately unfinished, but already extremely polished. The animations are among the best I've ever seen in any game, there are even puzzles where the most minute and tiny animations have to be observed (facial expressions). Puzzles are entertaining, the whole atmosphere is light-hearted and funny. The soundtrack is great and perfectly supports the atmosphere. It's really a tragedy that this game will never be completed.

As CaptainD said, "Sadly, this is the one that got away... I was writer / game designer for this one, it was the pet project of Daniel Thomas, an incredibly talented artist as you will see from the game's screens. Unfortunately certain things didn't work out so the full game will remain forever a dream (perhaps appropriate in a strange way, as our studio name was to have been "Dream Cauldron"), but at least now the demo is out there and people can enjoy it."...
