Mourning Glory: The Shivah - Kosher Edition

Enhanced Adventure

Wadjet Eye are situated within an extremely comfortable niche. I think it's a niche. It's bigger than a cranny or a nook but probably not big enough to be referred to as a rift. I haven't played all of the company's published output, which includes externally developed titles as well as their internal creations, but despite my fondness for the Blackwell series, The Shivah is the game that I always associate with founder Dave Gilbert. It's a quiet game about mourning, morality and murder, starring a Rabbi who is grappling with questions of faith. News of the Kosher Edition's release, with updated graphics and a new soundtrack, is reason enough to take on the role of hazzan and sing its praises once more, even if John did mention its existence just over a week ago. A demo is available and if you'd like to stroke a synagogue, the Kosher edition is also available for touchable screens, with a revamped interface.

The Kosher Edition costs $4.99. The next game from Wadjet will most likely be the final entry in the Blackwell series, which I spoke to Mr Gilbert about briefly following the frightful Halloween giveaway.
