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

Tonight, you are out in the woods. As a cat.

A short game intended to be played at night, using headphones. In this first-person game you use your mouse to look around and scratch things, and WASD keys for walking, shift to run, and you use Esc to show the menu.
After you run you may sit around to breathe a bit and listen to the forest.

I didn't think these things could be done with the AGS. Good job!

The forrest is very atmospheric and it does get immersive despite the pixelation. The music contributes to add to the atmosphere of mistery. And original idea, controlling a cat is kind of funny to scratch.
Impressive technically.

The atmosphere and technical side of this game are superb!

Use a mouse to control a cat!

Aside from that, this is awesome. I betatested and was lucky to watch how this world grew into the little forest it is now. Check this one out!
