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 Place In The Sun is a short point & click adventure game with an interface similar to the classical games from Lucas Arts. You play the protagonist in his endeavour to make some coffee to survive yet another night of overworking, while trying to handle his complaining ex-wife as well as to cope with his bad conscience regarding his neglected daughter. For players familiar with adventure games it shouldn't take more than 30-45 minutes to complete the game, while for players unfamiliar with the genre it will probably take a bit longer.

A rather compelling story about a software engineer who just can't seem to catch a break. Maybe some coffee will help...

I enjoyed the storyline, found the music quite depressing (my girlfriend was not amused), but it is fitting for the game. Actual gameplay is not too difficult, like the creator has said, about 30-45 minutes long.
