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

Abscission is a Lovecraftian, story-driven horror point-and-click investigation game. It involves searching crime scenes for evidence, combining clues and questioning suspects. Puzzles can have multiple solutions as you guide the protagonist - Detective Will Stanhope - through the story.
This game adapts to your choices. People will remember how Stanhope spoke to them and may respond differently in the future, so consider each response carefully. Will Stanhope's destiny is in your hands. Choose wisely.

The atmosphere and character writing in this game is remarkable. Highly recommended to all who like investigations, Lovecraftian horror or both.

I was deeply enthralled in this adventure, I ended up staying up all night playing it, and then coming back to it the next day to try and find all the different endings. I believe there are four and I found them all, but that may be more down to luck than to skill.

Highly cinematic, I lost count of the number of cutscenes. Good puzzles, I remember being stumped a number of times, but I never had to resort to hints or anything like that. Different ways to talk to characters. I'm amazed the level of detail that has gone into this.

Perhaps there is more I can do in the game. I'm not sure if I should do something with the ink for example.

Well I highly recommend this one.
