It's back to the 1920s in The Golden Wake

The 1920s is another one of those time periods, rich in history but still passed over as a setting for videogames. The Golden Wake is a new point-'n'-click adventure game from genre specialist Wadjet Eye set in Miami that sp...

Review: The Shivah - Kosher Edition
by Alasdair Duncan

Whilst Kickstarter has been abuzz in the last year or so seemingly reviving the point-'n-click adventure genre, Wadjet Eye Games has been quietly and successfully putting out quality adventure games for a number of years now as a publisher and developer. Gemini Rue, Resonance, Primordia, and the Blackwell franchise are its most well-known titles but the studio kicked things off in 2006 with The Shivah.

Now seven years later, the game has been re-released with updated graphics and new music; it's definitely interesting to go back and see the company's first game but is The Shivah: Kosher Edition worth playing in 2013?

Wadjet Eye's Primordia due to arrive on PC December 5
by Conrad Zimmerman

Wadjet Eye has established themselves as one of the best things going for adventure games these days, with titles like Resonance and Gemini Rue turning out damn fine. Their newest romp, Primordia, has me pretty excited, being set in a world that consists of the broken remains man left behind. Nothing like a good apocalypse to get the blood pumping.

Anyway, Wadjet Eye is expecting to release Primordia on December 5th. They're currently taking pre-orders on the title, offering the digital download at a ten percent discount as well as a limited, physical edition which will include the game on DVD, the soundtrack and other digital goodies. And they would like to get the game on Steam as well, having set up a Greenlight page in hopes of hitting that marketplace, so you can help out with that if your interests align.

Review: Resonance photo
Review: Resonance
by Fraser Brown

I have a voracious appetite for good mysteries, even more so for good adventure games. Wadjet Eye Games has been keeping me plump on wonderful offerings like the Blackwell series and Gemini Rue, and now Resonance. After five years of development, I was expecting -- hoping -- for this to be something special.

I was not disappointed. Fantastic interconnected stories, wrapped up in a grand mystery with four interesting protagonists. What's not to like? Well maybe a couple of things, little bumps in an otherwise smooth road.

Point-and-click adventures are one of my favorite genres, simply because they usually expect you to think about what you're doing instead of just plodding along from point A to B. Resonance doesn't seem to be an exception to this rule, and from what I have played so far, it will seriously challenge you to think.

So far, the game promises a dark and complex story, interesting characters, and maybe even some romance. After playing the demo, Resonance can't come out soon enough for me.

The grand adventure: Making a comeback photo
The grand adventure: Making a comeback
by Fraser Brown

Check out the first part of the feature, here!

The last few years have been an interesting time for the adventure game genre. After a decade of disappointment, fans finally started to see more and more titles appear and most importantly, become successes. Big changes in the industry, such as the rise of digital distribution and the popularity of episodic content created a more favorable environment to craft these games in. More opportunities for indie developers started to appear as well.

In this, the second part of the feature, I'll be taking a look at what impact these changes have had on the developers and their games as well as what we might be able to expect in the future (hoverboards, hoverboards, hoverboards.) Providing us with words of wisdom are: Al Lowe, creator of Leisure Suit Larry; Dan Connors, CEO of Telltale Games; Dave Gilbert, creator of the Blackwell series and founder of developer/publisher, Wadjet Eye Games; and Josh Nuernberger, creator of Gemini Rue.
