Jennifer Wilde: The Ghost of Oscar Wilde will transport you to back to 1921 and Jazz-Age Paris. Young artist Jennifer Chevalier has recently lost her father, whom she suspects may have been murdered.

Jennifer has a gift that enables her to talk to spirits. When she finds a locket at her father’s hotel, she uses it in an attempt to speak to his ghost.

Unwittingly, she summons the ghost of Oscar Wilde instead. It seems that the Irish playwright is bound to the locket due to an affair Jennifer’s father.

Together, the two embark on an adventure across France, England and Ireland in an effort to solve the suspected murder. In the process, they become close friends.

Jennifer Wilde: The Ghost of Oscar Wilde features ink-washed 2D graphics that capture the aesthetic of the original comic book. It’s billed as the spiritual successor to Outsider Games’ Wailing Heights.

The game’s release date is TBD. I’ve been unable to confirm platforms; I can only presume that Windows will be one of them.

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.
