Beneath the promise of a shining 19th-century future, Lamplight City is built on a foundation of poverty, class struggle and crime.

In this city of shadows, private investigator Miles Fordham hears his former partner speak to him from beyond the grave. This causes his grip on reality to slowly dissolve.

Dring the course of the game Miles is given five cases, each with multiple suspects, false leads and lasting consequences. He needs to solve them before his partner’s yammering drives him completely nuts.

Lamplight City has been inspired by the works of Edgar Allan Poe and Charles Dickens. Grundislav Games is looking to release the game on Windows in 2017; exact date TBD.

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.
