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

Dear Comrade,

The Party needs you! You must come to Absurdistan immediately and join Leszek on his little quest to save his father's name day! A trifle you say? Oh, Comrade, how wrong of you! Don't you forget that Absurdistan is a place where logic is nowhere to be found and that Absurdanis are reluctant to help each other out. Where keeping your profile low and showing your devotion to the Party is your bread and butter. Hope now you understand that in this place even a simple task becomes an adventure in its own right.

There is no time to lose, so get your passport ready and hop on the first train to Absurdistan!

Glory to the Party! 

About the game: Absurdistan is a partially text-based, side-scrolling adventure game featuring simplistic graphics.

You play as Leszek, a young Absurdani, who, just like his family, is fed up with the regime imposed by the Party. But, dear Adventure Gamer, fear nothing! Despite the seemingly gloomy setting, the game doesn't intend to get you down, as its main goal is to poke fun at many absurdities of the daily life in a totalitarian-communist state. 

The game features a whole variety of puzzles, which, unlike the state of Absurdistan, do make sense. Some of them may even require you to grab something to write and figure them out in real life.

Manual: You control Leszek with the mouse and occasionally with the keyboard.

Left mouse click is used to BOTH inspect and interact with objects/hotspots/characters.

Right mouse click is used only to click out of GUIs, interfaces or deselect active inventory items. 

This is probably a matter of opinion but due to low resolution the game looks best when played in a windowed mode in native resolution. I think it gives it a Yoda Stories vibe : )

Loved the puzzles and the PRL references - missed a meblościanka though ;)

Very cute game. I really liked the minimalistic graphics. The puzzles were interesting and innovative. Would really like a return to absurdistan, maybe there is a chance for part 2?

Something so very charming about this game despite it being set in a drab and absurd part of the world. Recommend playing this game which has some nifty puzzles.

It's a crime against the commune don't play this game!!! Glory to the Party!!!

I liked this game, the satirical humour, the plot, and the immersion of "life within the party" - which is no party at all. Great fun to play, but in some parts of the globe it is, alas, real.

OMG! You are absolutely right, I forgot to add the link to my game's page : D I think I've just fixed it but just in case I messed it up again here is the link to the game: https://lazy-squirrel.itch.io/absurdistan

As is my civic duty, I let the creators know that they neglected to add the download to this page. They said it was all part of the game's minimalist charm. They thanked me by having me beaten and sent to the gulag. :(
