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 metaphysical game about finding meaning through 10 objects

Upon arriving in the dream-state of the machines, you're given a strange task to retrieve 10 miscellaneous objects - only to discover from a cast of curious inhabitants that certain combinations unlock secrets hidden in their memories.

The machines have endured a great calamity in this place they call home. While some remained steadfast and persevered, many who once thrived now struggle to remember their
purpose. Others are presumed lost.

Master our unique stacking mechanic to find the missing machines.

Stack, combine, and arrange the found objects into a myriad of combinations to rediscover the history of this world and help those old souls find release at last.

- 10 objects to find
- 120+ object combinations to discover
- 8 talking machines, fully scripted to respond to these combinations, resulting in thousands of lines of possible dialogue
- A supporting cast of colourful machine-like friends
- Consequences for your actions
- Feature-length story (2+ hours of gameplay)

We are a two-person team working in central London. Machines Have Lucid Dreams is our first game, which we started in March 2020.  After 2 years of development it is finally ready for consumption.

MHLD is about finding meaning in the small things... And the abundant options that can exist with only a handful of miscellaneous objects.

We hope you enjoy what was an unexpectedly long, protracted and personal journey for us in the development of this strange world which, starting from humble beginnings, grew and grew the more we added to it...
