Mudlarks is inspired by games such as the Gabriel Knight series by Jane Jensen, and other Sierra and LucasArts classics.

Your name is Winston. You are very much a regular, normal chap – living in London with your girlfriend and holding down a 9 to 5 office job. Among your various hobbies, you are a mudlarker. That is, the practice of combing the shore of the River Thames for historically interesting objects that may have gone underwater hundreds of years ago.

One day, you and your co-Mudlarker James stumble upon what appears to be a valuable golden locket – and your destiny is changed forever. Two days after the find, James disappears on the shore, leaving only the locket behind…

What follows is an atmospheric dialog- and puzzle-driven adventure game, bringing together both science fiction and paranormal elements as you undertake your quest to find your friend and unravel many secrets along the way.

In Mudlark, Winston — an ordinary man — finds himself in quite an extraordinary situation…

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
