New Shardlight trailer; game will release March 8 for PC (point & click adventure from Wadjet Eye)

It's been 20 years since the bombs fell, and Amy Wellard and her friends are barely surviving. Green Lung has gripped their community, the only medicine a vaccine in scarce supply. While the wealthy elite pay to stay healthy the poor must risk their lives, performing dangerous government jobs in exchange for a chance of winning meager vaccine doses in a stacked-odds lottery.

This bleak scenario sets the scene in Shardlight, Wadjet Eye Games' new adventure releasing March 8 for PC. Step into the well-worn shoes of mechanic Amy Wellard to explore a dying city, navigate its social hierarchy, and expose the secrets that plague a community still suffering from the devastation of war. With old-school pixel-art graphics, classic point & click gameplay, and high production values all around, Shardlight is an ambitious game from the studio behind the Blackwell mysteries, A Golden Wake, and many other acclaimed indie adventures released over the past ten years.
