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!

The story of a man's fascination with, and attempt to reach, a mysterious domed structure that lies beyond an impassable mire.

This game is a little piece of art.

The story and the moral is surprisingly deep. The graphic is ok, simple with some nice animations, however it fits well with the story and the athmosphere - In a game like this I would not change it for anything more "refined"

Sometimes it feels like an interactive movie - in particular to get further in the game need to have some specific dialogues to trigger some effects without any logic behind. That's my only little "criticism", beside this the puzzles where very simple but decent enough

This is a pretty good game with an interesting, deep story and some (strong) philosophical elements.

On first glance, the graphics might seem fairly simple, but they fit the tone quite well. As a matter of fact, I think less simple graphics would hurt the atmosphere a bit.

There are a decent number of puzzles in a game world that is just a few locations but with characters that often change their position, adding to the feel of a living world. All in all, puzzles and story match well.

With about 1 hour 15 minutes of play time, the game has a decent length but due to the philosophical nature of the story, one should probably not rush too much.

I can definetely recommend this game.

An intriguing game, with psychological developement, introspection, mystery and good character writing.

The only thing I didn't fancy (some are extraordinarily good, some a bit trite), but that's a minor remark; the graphics are functional and and full of enjoyable animations.

This games tries to do something new and succedes, I hope to see more from the author.

If you like interactive storytelling you will most likely like this game.
