Shardlight

I didn't actually get to see this game in action at Adventure-X 2014, but I'm posting about it anyway. :-)


"The world ended on the day the bombs fell.

Since then, it's always been like this. Disease, hunger, death. The ruling Aristocrats have unchallenged authority – a faceless oligarchy that controls all resources, and there's never enough food, water or vaccine for everyone. The poor live in fear, superstition and squalor. The rich receive regular doses of vaccinations in exchange for unconditional government support.

Amy has never known a life beyond this, and has had to resort to working for Caligula, the ruthless head of the Ministry of Energy, in order to qualify for the vaccine lottery.  However, she will soon learn that the government is keeping a terrible secret.  With the help of a mysterious figure, Amy will work to unite the oppressed, bring down Caligula, and find a cure for the plague."


Indie adventure game legends Ben Chandler and Francisco Gonzalez (whom I had the great pleasure of meeting on Sunday) have joined forces again, and will be published by another indie adventure game legend, Dave Gilbert of Wadjet Eye Games.  (Don't be shy guys, you are all indie adventure game legends!  Before you think I'm saying this just to try to get this page highly ranked if by any chance someone were to search for the term "indie adventure game legends" - no, I'm not.  It's a pretty specific search term anyway, maybe one search per billion..) 

More news on this game a bit later, for now the gorgeous screenshots should be enough to keep you occupied!
