A Golden Wake Review – October 9, 2014

Follow everyman Alfie Banks as he scrambles to the top of the 1920s land boom in the Miami suburb of Coral Gables, in a game from indie developer Grundislav Games.

Go head-to-head with with real estate mogul George Merrick in a vibrant, pixel-art representation of the Jazz Age. Puzzle through classic point-and-click adventure. Be faced with political corruption and cutthroat bootleggers. Deal with hurricanes and The Mob. Fight for Alfie’s redemption.

Grundislav Games has previously released the freeware series Ben Jordan: Paranormal Investigator. Publisher Wadjet Eye Games is best known for their Blackwell mystery series, and for publishing such acclaimed adventure games as Gemini Rue, Resonance, and Primordia. A Golden Wake is the studio’s first game to release simultaneously for PC, Mac, and Linux.

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.
