A Golden Wake: Finally, a game about real estate!

A Golden Shower for adventure fans (in a good way)

Want a neat adventure game set in the Roaring Twenties; during the birth of jazz; during the years of prohibition; filled with historical facts, characters, and events? Hell yeah, you do! And here it is: A Golden Wake.

Set against the backdrop of the Florida Land Boom of the 1920s, A Golden Wake is a story of an innocent man's descent into greed and corruption, and his eventual redemption.

Based on actual events and featuring real life locations and historical figures, you must guide Alfie on his journey to reach the top of the real estate game as he deals with shady salesmen, cutthroat bootleggers, corrupt politicians, and much more, all while swept up in the events surrounding the inception of Coral Gables, The City Beautiful.

This debut from Grundislav Games is set to arrive in 2014, but these early screens and details have me excited. It's like The Colonel's Bequest and Boardwalk Empire are coming together, just as I always dreamed.
