Sidebar bottom
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

An out of work layabout, Alfred Walsh, thinks he has found a cushy job as the custodian of a private library. He has no idea how wrong he could have been. When otherworldly forces intrude he is forced to abandon his career path: the casual dusting off of books between well-earned naps, and is thrust into a battle to save the very heart and soul of what makes humanity what it is. Languages: English - German - Italian - Czech FULL GAME has been released in November 14th 2016 - check it out here: http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/site/games/game/2106/

AGS Awards Wins

Won, Best Demo 2014

8 people commented on this game (newest first):

For the amount of hours put into game such development, graphics and ect..., it no wonder it got nominated as best demo 2014. You got to play to see why!

Great puzzles and graphics. Story is very intriguing, and after playing demo I really can't wait to play the rest of the game.
The demo of Tales introduces you to the concept of how the whole game will play and was a lot longer than I expected. What is more, from what I've heard from developer of the game, the full game will be a lot longer, which is shockingly great!

I really enjoyed the demo and I am really looking forward to playing the rest of the game.

What a beautiful game. Really HIGH quality. Immersive, great graphics, nice characters, attention to detail... I am really impressed and looking foerward to the full game! If this was on Kickstarter, i´d back it pronto!

age of the internet, we immerse ourselves in an old library and opens a world of stories in the stories, like a Chinese box. You need to try the game

Fantastic demo and interesting setting. Good puzzles so far. Really looking forward to seeing the rest of this game!

It was tons of fun and hard work (in that order) to help bring this gem within the reach of the English speaking community.

AprilSkies is a genius and deserves a government grant so he can start churning this quality of game out full-time!
