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

This is the old 2003 playable demo of "By the Sword: Conspiracy", which is really just the first of 6 planned chapters in the first of what was to be many games in this universe.

The year is 2197. You are Lieutenant Ronald Garner, a Star Force officer who is caught in the middle of an interstellar conspiracy.

Escape the clutches of the Stellar Patrol, journey through the jungles of an alien moon, and solve the mystery of the dead admiral and an attempted incursion into the very heart of the Star Force.

In this demo, you have to escape your doomed ship, the S.S. Merrimack, before it is destroyed.

AGS Awards Nominations

Nominated, Best Demo Created in AGS 2003

1 people commented on this game (newest first):

Most demo's I have played are fleeting, over and done with before you know it, the full game never to reach the light of day.

Did the full game get completed? With a release date of 2010/2011, it is not looking promising!

But the difference with this demo is that it is pretty much a Chapter 1. There is a good solid 45 minutes of gameplay, with lots of tech-y puzzles. An enjoyable game that can easily be overlooked.
