The Golden Wake  



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


4:00 PM on 06.26.2014



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 spans the '20s and '30s before the Great Depression. The game's protagonist Alfie Banks is looking to cash in on the real-estate boom but with gangsters on his back, that might not be so easy.

The game is developed by Miami native Francisco Rodriguez who set out tell the kind of noir story that's usually set in cities like New York or Chicago. It's an interesting setting and a unique time period that offered a lot of glitz and glamor before things all seemed to go awry.

Wadjet Eye's record with adventure games is really good, so I'm really keen to play The Golden Wake when it's released in fall 2014.
