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?)

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

Erik, a photographer from Sweden, has just got onboard the ship Victoria. Erik is heading to Great Britain to find out about an artifact he recently recieved. The trip seems more like a holiday at first...

1 people commented on this game (newest first):

This "demo" should be re-classsified as "alpha test". It is buggy and has dead-ends, but having said that, it shows a lot of potential. I am intrigued by the storyline, but frustrated by the dead-ends. By way of explanation, some acts need to be performed in precisely the correct order for the game to proceed. It is (at the moment) very linear!

The artwork and animation are cool, as is the soundtrack, voice acting is fairly good, but the coding is woeful - and I suspect global variables and global functions are to blame, perhaps under used. A very ambitious attempt released far too early in my opinion. For the devs; Please don't give up on this! Seek help in the forums, particularly in coding, or even recruitment. I can see (as a player) what you are trying to achieve, but you are not getting anywhere. Assume that dumb-ass players like me are not going to follow a designer's planned walkthrough, but will fly off at random because that which is obvious to you designers may not be obvious to the players. That's why I love beta-testing, because if there's a bug I will find it!

Congrats on your progress, good luck with the rest of the project!
