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

Hey! If you got about 5-10 minutes, then come and help an adventurer to prepare for a mysterious trip to the Land of the White Elephants. A Prelude to an Adventure is a little interactive experience with light puzzle elements, tons of animations and catchy music. Have fun!

Originally made for LOWREZJAM 2020 and then updated for MAGS August 2020 and then updated again to current version.

AGS Panel Review

"A short and beautifully illustrated feel-good experience."

8 people commented on this game (newest first):

A tiny and short game with very bad graphic.
I didn't like this terrible graphic style.
But the gameplay was ok.

I liked it a lot! The graphics and animations are just lovely. I hope it's really the prelude to a longer story!

Such a cute game. Gameplay is short, but there are some very nice animations/scenery that make up for it.

Loved it! Only wish there were more! Graphics, animations, the simple symbol-dialogue, music, all worked very, very well together and made me want to know more about this world and characters.

a beautiful game but way too short (as the name implies already)

A very short but very lovely game! Nice work.

Interesting how graphics replace dialogs and it works well. I'd love to see more of this.
