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

Alone and lost in the Dark of Night during a storm... Our weary traveller explores his surroundings as he tries to find a way past various obstacles. Game is a bit spooky, with a few surprises and some nice special effects as well(lightning, thunder, rain, etc)... Best played with the lights down low, and the sound turned up a bit. ;) Made for the October 2005 "Release Something - Halloween Edition" AGS event. Light and Rain "plugins" are included with the zip download. Game should run fine on most versions of Windows and on most modern computer systems.

Played this game via AGS Archives.

Very atmospheric Halloween-y game. Your character has a lantern that lights up the dark surroundings, and there is rain and thunder noises as you trudge through the terrain you find yourself in. No back story though, you just pop up at the start of the adventure next to a locked gate. Can you survive?

I loved this game and wish there could be more like it. Looking forward to the sequel.

This is a great short adventure game. I really hope it is turned into a full game, that would rock! The atmosphere is easily the best I have seen in a AGS game ever, the lighting and darkness, rain and everything is just spooky and it really draws you in. Wonderful stuff. I hope more scary games of this quality get made with AGS.

Hey, that background with the gate in the screenshot. Is that from Alone in the Dark: The new Nightmare? It is isn't it? Cool! I like that game (but it don't work on my computer... even though it's not that old!) It worked on my older computer though. You know I'll give this a try.

This is my first post. I loved this game, and I do hope that someday I may be able to walk down the steps towards the sea!

After talking to the skeleton several times, leaving and re-entering the bloody stairs room, I still can't find the broken barrel with the mouse.

Stylish work. Hurry up with the full version.

Really nice game, especially the view (backgrounds, effects).
I'm looking forward to a continuation.

Good game, and yeah... I think it should be made into a full version. Thanks!

Fantastic remake. I usually have a problem with wannabes...but your graphics were great and the puzzles made sense. The ambience was strong enough to qualify this as a great remake. The only problem I had with it was it was too short, leaving a huge plot hole. I just hope that you can extend this into a full length game with a great plot. Please, keep working on it.
