It's not the Oscars. It's the 2005 AGS Awards!

At last. Everybody has been holding his breath since the 2004 AGS Awards, and now a huge army of undead and quite scary adventurers are ready to feast upon the newer award-winning adventure games. Mind you, all of these games, the AGS 2005 award-wining games, are free and created with the AGS games creation software. This list was originally posted at the AGS forums, and since I don't particularly like verbatim quoting other sites, I've added links to the downloads of the games mentioned, (quite a few) links to their respective reviews and (were applicable) links to their creators' homepages. Without further ado then:

  1. Greetings Mr.Gnome, I've taken your kind invitation and probably gone over board. I hope the following post dosen't offend http://xboxmeagain.blogspot.com/2006/03/gnome-is-where-your-gaming-heart-is.html

    In addition I've added your face to my sidebar and included your link in my "friends of the elderly" sidebar category.

    If I've mis-represented your site in anyway please let me know and i'll fix it.
