Golden Wake Dev's New Steampunk-ish Adventure Game

Grundislav Games, the maker of A Golden Wake, has announced its next adventure game, Lamplight City [official site]. It takes me back to the many nights I spent sitting on the edge of my parents’ bed watching Dad play adventure games like Loom. Dad would play for a little bit and stop because they weren’t quite his cup of tea, but they were mine. I fostered a lifelong love for the adventure genre, culminating in a Purple Tentacle tattoo (Day of the Tentacle, duh) on my upper left arm. So I’ll be playing Lamplight City, too. Trust.

Set in an alternate “steampunk-ish” past with Victorian dress and sensibilities, Lamplight City will follows a private investigator bent on discovering who actually killed his partner. You won’t have to mess with an inventory though, and as someone who consistently picks up items in games, gets annoyed when she can’t find a use for them, and stops playing because who really wants to use a walkthrough? Granted, back then I used the Universal Hint System, but that’s another story.

There’s not a release date in sight just yet it seems, just an announcement and some screenshots on its site, but if you like retro throwbacks in your adventure games, you may want to see more of Lamplight City. Or at least you’ll be inspired to dig into your adventure game back catalogue in the meantime.
