Welcome to the new AG announcement

AG new logo
AG new logo

Welcome to a brand new AdventureGamers.com! Though it may not look like it at first glance, this is is our biggest re-launch ever. Marking the 10th anniversary of Adventure Gamers (with its current logo and domain), we have not only given the site a new lick of paint, but have also redeveloped the underlying code entirely from the ground up for the first time. 

We know that change always takes some getting used to, but we're sure you'll agree that this update is well worth your attention. The new site engine enables us to introduce a great number of improvements that we know you'll enjoy. Here are just some of them:

About Your Account

If you have an account registered before April 2012:

Log in as usual. Details on updating your account can be found here.

If you registered recently (within the last few weeks):

Chances are your account was imported to the new site, however a few accounts may have slipped through. If you are unable to log in, please re-register.

User Ratings

This has been the most requested site feature by far, so we are excited to finally introduce this today. You can now rate any game as well as post your own reviews, and the average user ratings will be displayed on every review page along with AG's score. Why not browse the games database and rate & review some games?

Platform Categories

When we originally built the previous version of the site ten years ago, adventure games were almost entirely played on PC, so we never thought we'd ever need a structure to support multiple platforms.

In recent years the genre has flourished especially on Nintendo and Apple platforms, and is seeing more releases on other platforms as well. We've finally restructured the site to reflect this, and have also added categories for Freeware and Casual adventure games, with each section given its own homepage. Different pages across the site also feature a drop-down menu allowing you to filter results by category (for instance, you can narrow down results on the reviews index page in this way).

If other platforms (for instance, Android devices) get a significant number of adventure game releases in the future, we will add a section for it.

Advanced Game Browsing

The improved Games A-Z page now allows you to filter games by a range of criteria, including genre, theme, platform, presentation style (e.g. 3D or 2D), control method, and more. This means that if you want to search for, say, historical musical comedies with claymation graphics and text parser control, this is entirely possible. (Of course, such a game has to actually exist. What about it, adventure developers?).

Improved Search

We have implemented a new custom solution that searches the AG games database directly, rather than relying on an external Google site search. Our logs showed that nearly all site searches were for specific game titles, so we've made it much easier to simply find games (rather than getting a confusing variety of page results). Give it a spin by using the search box at the top of any page.

Videos

You may have already known about our YouTube channel, but now our videos are also fully integrated into the site. You can check out the latest adventure game trailers here. Videos are also posted directly to the main page and any related game info pages.

Game Recommendations

Not sure what game to play next? Or maybe you are new to the genre and wondering where to start? Good news - we took the popular “Top Games” page from the old site and turned it into a key feature, with game recommendations now listed prominently per category. Look for "top games lists" under Games in the main menu.

(Also check out our new Top Reviewed games list and Recent Releases for other ways to discover games.)

And much more...

Listing every improvement would take too long, as nearly every page on the site has been overhauled. We hope you like what we've done with the place! If you have any feedback, please let us know on the Site Feedback forum, or use the feedback widget on the right side of the screen (which does not require an AG account to use).

The new site has been in development for over a year and represents our biggest re-commitment to being the main online destination for adventure games. Besides the introduction of new features, the improved site foundations will allow us to more easily develop the site further in the future, and enables our server to more easily keep up with the 160,000 unique visits we now receive each month (that's over a million page views). 

As with any major update there are bound to be a few glitches, particularly when it comes to older archived articles, but let us know if you see any and we'll be able to iron all of these out soon.

Thanks for visiting!

Happy anniversary and thanks for advanced games browsing. Finding/filtering adventure games won’t be an adventure anymore.

May 22, 2012

Couple of days late to the party, and mostly a longtime lurker, but congratulations on your longevity and as a primarily Mac/iOS/DS adventurer these days I’m well pleased to see the new platform categories.

Looking forward to the next ten years here!

May 22, 2012

Happy anniversary guys! Have been visiting the site for years and look forward to spending another 10 years visiting the site for my AG needs!

May 22, 2012

Happy anniversary AG, live long and prosper.
And long live adventure games!

First of all, congrats, the site looks improved indeed. Fooled around for about 20 minutes and I’m loving most of the upgrades.

However, I am very sad to see probably my most used feature disappear. Or maybe I just can’t find it. Is there any way to sort / filter reviews or games a-z by year? The new filter options are all nice and all, but if I can’t browse through the reviews or games from a certain year (say, 2012), it’s pretty much useless to me. Frown

Happy anniversary/birthday and congratulations on 10 years!

May 21, 2012

It’s cleaner and simpler and that’s always a good thing. The only problem I have is the text you’re using. It bothers my eyes. lol.

May 20, 2012

Most excellent! First impressions are solid. Time to start visiting more often.

Congratulations…!

Thanks for the kind words everyone. Subbi: we can implement such a feature when we have more user ratings.

May 20, 2012

Happy birthday, AG!

Looks really great.
The user ratings sounfs like a very nice addition.

Will it be possible though to browse or sort games by user rating in stead of AG review rating?

May 20, 2012

I like the cleaner aesthetic. NIcely done.
