offical wikipedia article https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adventure_Game_Studio

i never mind helping the community however this is quite the mistake and will effect many independent game developers i know the games in question have been on my hard drive for years and i know the developer personally

Thank you updated and scanning now to check results if i may say so i really dont understand how such a well established program got flagged to start with i understand false positives happen in any security environment my main concern is what it is labeled as i nearly lost my mind till i calmed down and looked closer ransomware is not a detection anyone wants   so can we try to be slightly more conservative with the use of the world and perhaps make up a title for generic detection
