    I've long been interested in Teslagrad, but the reviews are putting me off, especially the bits about dying all the time, and how every jump, boss-fighting scene, etc has to be timed with perfect accuracy and that there's zero margin for error. Also that there's very few checkpoints for saving.

    <sigh> A charming looking game but would prove too challenging and frustrating for me. I'll give it a miss.

    Oh, good to know!  It looked interesting to me, too, but I'll pass on it for the same reason.

    Classic Gem Promo: BloodNet
    Vampires 2.0

    BloodNet, a dark cyberpunk adventure classic with RPG elements, in which vampires take Manhattan--and cyberspace!--and the stake of the game is your very soul, is available 60% off on GOG.com. That's only $2.39 from dusk til dawn (and then some--well, 24 hours total)!

    In 2094 the children of the night have a new playground, as far from the burning rays of sunlight as possible--the cyberspace. With the wired and wireless networks covering the whole of New York with a thick digital shroud, there's virtually no place out of their reach. The fact that you have fangs at the helms of the megacorporations doesn't help either. It would seem that humanity is doomed. But this isn't the story of the human race's fall. It's a story of one person's struggle. When you wake up with two bite marks on your neck in the middle of vampire-ridden Manhattan, and you start to feel the HUNGER, there's very little time to save your soul. Just remember to install some humanity-boosters in your cyber-deck.

    BloodNet is a remarkable game that brilliantly blends horror and cyberpunk in a mixture of adventure and RPG gameplay. You will explore the gritty locations of a high-tech futuristic city full of cyber-enhanced freaks, and tread the dangerous paths of the Cyberspace, that houses more demons than it did ever before. Build a team of deckers, cyberpunks, mercenaries, and rage gangers to help you in your desperate fight for your last threads of humanity. With a dark, memorable story, a haunting setting, graphics that aged surprisingly well, and hours of exciting and original gameplay, this classic title is a cyberpunk delight you cannot say no to.

    Face some of mankind's greatest fears and enter the high-tech realm of BloodNet, for only $2.39 on GOG.com. The 60% off Gem Promo offer lasts only until Tuesday, April 1, at 9:59AM GMT.

    15th Anniversary Promo: RollerCoaster Tycoon Series
    The ultimate collection of amusement park business ups and downs!

    RollerCoaster Tycoon Series turns 15 today! We invite you to celebrate the occasion with our special anniversary promo. The collection of all three great amusement park management games that let you create the rides you always dreamed about, is available for only $8.17 total for the next 48 hours. You can also get the games separately with up to 80% off.

    Where's entertainment for the masses, there's massive income for a skilled entrepreneur. Amusement park is an automated money maker for a businessman who understands what it's all about. Build an "EST" ride--one that's either the fastEST, highEST, longEST, scariEST, craziEST, or any other possible "EST"--and the people will come running to experience the "EST" moment in their lives. As long as you come up with original ways to rattle and shake people, there's plenty of loose change that'll surely drop out of their pockets. Make them scream with terror or yell with joy and they'll get sore throat and be happy to pay you five bucks for a medium soda. You'll need a rake to handle the cash. But here's a secret: this isn't about money. If you'll go into the business with only the cash in mind, you will fail. It's all about letting your inner child finally build the playground of their dreams. Do that. People will love it.

    RollerCoaster Tycoon Series is a brilliant lineup of managerial games that let you design and run your very own amusement park complete with custom rides and various other attractions. The more money you make, the bigger your budget gets, and the more technically advanced and extravagant rides you get to build. The economic part of all of the games is consistently challenging and deep, while the theme park development options are getting more robust and varied with every game. Creating a perfect mix of serious business simulation with the sheer joy of riding the rides you design, this great collection will provide you with many hours of pure fun!

    Get your roller coaster business on track with RollerCoaster Tycoon Series for a small investment of only $8.17. You can also get Rollercoaster Tycoon 1,2, and 3 for $1.19, $1.99, and $4.99 respectively. The offer lasts until until Wednesday, April 2, at 9:59AM GMT.

    Indie Gem Promo: Knock-Knock
    When reason sleeps monsters are born.

    Knock-Knock, a unique survival-horror adventure with puzzling mechanics, original cartoon graphics, and twisted atmosphere, is available 60% off for Windows and Mac OS X, on GOG.com. That's only $3.99 for the next 24 hours.

    The developers of Knock-Knock have chosen to shed some light on the unsettling origin of their creation, on their official website: In late November, 2011, a strange and troubling event has happened to our studio. We have received an anonymous e-mail which suggested that we should produce some "unconventional" game based upon the materials attached to the letter. Such offers are a dime a dozen and most of the time they barely deserve any attention at all, however, this one seemed quite different.The attachment contained a set of 19 files added to an archive titled "lestplay". The files (snippets of text, scraps of audio recording, video footage fragments) as well as the style and wording of the message itself appeared to be rather disturbing. The surface examination did not reveal anything straightforwardly terrifying, yet we could not escape the feeling that something truly sinister was lurking underneath.The stranger was begging us to complete the project he has started, yet he also made us well aware of the risk we took as the proposed ludic situation would potentially explain what calamity befell whoever has compiled the ominous archive, thus urging ourselves to meet the same fate.

    Knock-Knock is one of those games with a concept that may seem weird at first, but turn out to be really hard to put down once you start playing. In this bizarre survival horror title you'll be defending your cabin in the woods from the phantasmic "guests" that come out of the darkness and roam around the unilluminated rooms. Avoid encounters with the abominations of the dark, repair your home, and figure out how to survive a night. With twisted visuals and many interesting gameplay ideas will bring you both thrills and fun. Be careful though, it's dark in there and you might get eaten by a grue!

    Some doors are better left unopened, but it would be rude to ignore monsters going Knock-Knock, for only $3.99 on GOG.com. The 60% Gem Promo discount offer lasts until Thursday, April 3, at 9:59AM GMT.

    Classic Gem Promo: Wizardry 6+7 and 8 up to 70% off!
    The quest for power ultimate.

    The Dark Savant Trilogy, that is Wizardry 6+7 and Wizardry 8, an RPG epic originating in the harsh but glorious 1990s, the fabled golden age of PC dungeon crawling, is available up to 70% off on GOG.com. That's only $4.78 for the whole bundle. You can also get just one of them with 60% discount.

    When you hear the expression "Cosmic Forge", what image comes to your mind? A gleaming nebula pulsating with primal energy, suspended in the dark cold void of the still young and empty Universe? A mystical smithy of wizard marble on the top of the highest mountain, where the ancient gods forge the matter of the world and the destiny of the mortals? A place where where master craftsmen create mighty weapons for angels and demons? All the ideas seem plausible, but The Cosmic Forge is in fact--wait for it--a pen. An ancient artifact which can be used to rewrite reality at its users whim. Such power is, of course, greatly desired by all who seek dominion over the Universe. It's up to you, and your party of daring adventurers to secure it first, and use it for the right purpose. Your purpose.

    Opening the Dark Savant Trilogy, Wizardry 6: Bane of the Cosmic Forge came in 1990 setting some standards for what we call a challenging and complex dungeon crawler. Then, in 1992, it was followed by Wizardry 7: Crusaders of the Dark Savant which brought in even more depth and diversity into the already epic setting. Nine years later, the story was concluded with Wizardry 8, that successfuly bridged the gap between what we call old-time and modern RPG gameplay. The trilogy as a whole, takes 500 hours to beat at the average and remains a shiny example of how epic a computer game can get. Be warned: this isn't your casual role-playing. Prepare for a hardcore challenge!

    Treat yourself to a huge chunk of PC RPG history. Get Wizardry 6+7 and Wizardry 8 up to 70% off today, on GOG.com. That's only $4.78 for the entire Dark Savant Trilogy. If you already own one of the games it will count towards the discount rate. The promo lasts until Tuesday, April 8, at 9:59AM GMT.

    Indie Gem Promo: Risk of Rain
    Planet Permadeath.

    Risk of Rain, a procedurally generated action-packed platformer with brilliant, challenging gameplay and appealing retro graphics, in which time matters much more then winning, is available 60% off on GOG.com. That's only $3.99 for the next 24 hours!

    Personal log, entry 58-78. It's cold and dark in here. So cold, that I can feel it through my nanofiber suit. Strange alien monsters are roaming the place, dragging their claws in the dusty ground, clapping their jaws, red eyes flashing in the distance. I can hear them growl even through the thin atmosphere of poisonous gases. If it wasn't for the valuable artifacts there's no way I would've come here. I might be one of the toughest, meanest, deadliest people in the galaxy, but I swear--this planet will be the end of me. Well, that's enough yapping, time to get to work. End log.

    Risk of Rain is an action platformer with roguelike elements. With permanent death as a primary feature, players will have to play their best to get as far as possible. Fight on a mysterious planet with randomly spawning enemies and bosses, either alone or with 3 friends in online co-op. With over 100 items at your disposal, you will find the tools you need to find the teleporter back home. Discover a myriad of randomly chosen stages, from the desolate forest to the frozen tundra. With procedural content generation and a sense of urgency that keeps the game exciting, this one will keep you glued to the screen for a long time. You will be failing, especially at first, but the game will have you coming back for more and more!

    Start your journey into the land of random risks and ever-ticking clock in Risk of Rain, for only $3.99! The 60% off Indie Gem Promo discount offer lasts until Thursday, April 10, at 9:59AM GMT.

    Indie Gem Promo: Eschalon Trilogy
    Isometric RPG delight!

    The entire Eschalon Trilogy, presenting the player with an old-school RPG open world, with isometric graphics, and classic gameplay mechanics, is available for Windows and Mac OS X up to 60% off on GOG.com. That's Eschalon Book 1 and Book 2 60% off, Eschalon Book 3 50% off: $16.37 for the entire set of three for the next 24 hours.

    If you're an old-time computer role-playing fan, the chances are that you said the following at least once in your life: "They don't make cRPGs as they used to, nowadays". For the better part, you would be correct. Most of the modern role-playing games don't look nor play like their classic predecessors. It doesn't necessarily mean they're not as good, but they are--well--different. For all gamers disappointed by that state of things, here's a title custom-tailored to their nostalgic needs!

    Eschalon Trilogy was developed by people who are old-time hardcore computer role-players themselves, and you can see it in every aspect of their brilliant games. With classic isometric graphics, traditional gameplay mechanics, a large open-ended world, tons of quests, and randomly generated loot, this game is everything you need to get into that nostalgic mood only a fantasy adventure can induce. Highly recommended to all cRPG gamers!

    Get Eschalon Trilogy for only $16.37 whole trilogy until Thursday, Apr. 17, at 9:59AM GMT. You can also get them separately: Eschalon: Book 1, Eschalon: Book 2, and Eschalon: Book 3 for $2.39, $3.99, and $9.99 respectively.

    Classic Gem Promo: Far Cry 1 & 2
    Sandboxes red with blood.

    Far Cry 1 and Far Cry 2, the first two iterations of the 10-year old series of FPS games with versatile mechanics, huge worlds to explore, and realistic presentation creating a truly immersive experience, are available 75% off on GOG.com. That's only $4.98 for both ($2.49 each) for the next 24 hours!

    A tropical paradise seethes with hidden evil in Far Cry, a cunningly detailed action shooter that pushed the boundaries of combat to shocking new levels.Freelance mariner Jack Carver is cursing the day he ever came to this island. A week ago, a brash female reporter named Valerie had offered him an incredible sum of cash to take her to this unspoiled paradise. Shortly after docking, however, Jack's boat was greeted by artillery fire from a mysterious militia group swarming about the island. With his boat destroyed, his money gone, and the gorgeous Valerie suddenly missing, Jack now finds himself facing an army of mercenaries amidst the wilds of the island, with nothing but a gun and his wits to survive. But the further he pushes into the lush jungle canopy, the stranger things become.

    Far Cry 2, developed by Ubisoft Montreal, takes many of the great ideas from the previous game and improves upon them, making a pulse-pounding, high-speed shooter that roars through the beautiful, if sere, environments of Central Africa. With stunning visuals and deep gameplay, this game takes everything you liked about Far Cry and ramps it up to 11. You are a gun for hire, trapped in a war-torn African state, stricken with malaria and forced to make deals with corrupt warlords on both sides of the conflict in order to do what it takes to take down the Jackal, a dirty arms merchant who has made your new homeland a war-torn hell.

    Played side by side, Far Cry 1 and Far Cry 2 will provide you with dozens of hours worth of stealth, action, explosions, tactics, and adrenaline rushes. Pick them both up for only $4.98, or either one of them for just $2.49! The 75% off Gem Promo discount lasts only until Tuesday, April 22, at 9:59AM GMT.

    Hi Genki - Am still here...covered up with RL at the moment, but I still keep up with the D&E site and other threads here.

    Is GOG's sale for Far Cry 1 and Far Cry 2 Adventure point & click games or are they games you have to use keys for to control the characters? 

    From your reviews they sound like very good games.  I'd love to get both 'if' they're point & click.  I don't know how to play other games except 'point & click' & wanted to make sure before I bought them.  Will wait until I know for sure before buying them. Also, do you have to have a game manager installed to play games at this site?

    Thanks for the info and reviews on all of the games and Beta's you post.  I've really been enjoying the Beta's and look forward to reading your game reviews. 

    Hope your doing well & thanks again.    Offering 

    Butterfly

    Please say they 'are' point & click games or I'll  Cry  lol

    Well, the 'reviews" are actually the official descriptions for the games!  Not one word is my own, I haven't played these games!  I'm pretty sure they're First-Person Shooters, not really any adventure in them.

    I'm glad you're still around!  I'm always happy to see you post Sunny

    Hi Butterfly, nice to 'see' you!  Big smile 
    I don't know if Genki has played the Far Cry games but what she posted was promotional info from GOG's site. The price is great, isn't it, but I can't play shooters so they're out for me.

    Thanks Genki and RMom - Good to see you both.      Offering 

    I don't know what a 'First Person Shooter' game is, (have never heard of them).  Thanks for the the info.  I think its best to let the games pass for me.  It 'is' a fantastic deal though! 

    Wishing you both a wonderful day.     Sunny

    (From Wikipedia): First-person shooter (FPS) is a video game genre centered on gun and projectile weapon-based combat through a first-person perspective; that is, the player experiences the action through the eyes of the protagonist, and in some cases, the antagonist.

    It gets pretty tense and frantic - after all, you're being shot at as well!  EEK! 
    Way too anxiety-producing for me, plus lots of violence which is definitely not my thing.  backaway

    Thanks RMom - I didn't think I'd like a First-person shooter game (for people) until I played "The Others".  I 'could' have shot a specific person easily but preferred to strangle him with my bare hands!  I loved "The Beast of Lycan Isle" (its in my top 5) & have no problem shooting 'mean' make believe creatures, witches, demons, etc.   The bigger, badder & meaner the better (especially if they say their gonna rip me to shreds).  From then on its "game on"!  Fast paced Adventure games are 'my' kind of games...LOVE them!     Happy bounce

    Fly, have you played The Walking Dead, yet?  Oh my gosh, SO GOOD! 

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Indie Gem Promo: Sword of the Stars: The Pit Gold Edition
    Includes Mind Games and Gold Edition DLCs!

    Sword of the Stars: The Pit Gold Edition, the complete edition of the challenging modern Sci-Fi roguelike game that challenges you to explore ancient alien ruins, is available 60% off on GOG.com. That's only $5.19 for the next 24 hours. Alternatively, you can grab Sword of the Stars: The Pit (basic edition) and any of the DLCs separately, also 60% off.

    Are you prepared for the Pit? If you think you are, scout, you've already failed and our world is doomed. I want you to really understand this: you are not prepared. Nothing in the world could have prepared you. No amount of training, not even years of experience, nothing. So if you're feeling confident, that you can go to the Feldspar Mountains, scavenge the ancient Suul'ka complex, steal their secrets, and return with the cure for the Ghoul Plague--we're dead. Our only hope lies in your ability to doubt yourself, second-guess your own judgment, and think twice about your every step. This is how dangerous the Pit is. I would know. I've been there. I reached level 3 before my squad was decimated by mutant beasts. So, soldier, I'll ask you one final time, and this time I want you to really think before you give me your answer: are you prepared?

    Sword of the Stars: The Pit Gold Edition is a phenomenal turn-based RPG turning the traditional roguelike dungeon exploration, item scumming, and careful planning into a modern gaming experience. The infamous Pit is randomly generated on each playthrough, which--combined with the game's three different character classes--makes up for crazy replayability value. With tons of items to find, many equipment and character modifications, and--most importantly--a vast selection of blood-hungry monsters waiting for your every mistake, this game offers you a Sci-Fi adventure you'll be enjoying for hours and hours. The Mind Games and Gold Edition DLCs included in this premium package, add new layers of gameplay and come with a plethora of improved and added features. If you already own the basic edition, this is the time to get both DLCs for only $3.18. Or if you're just looking for the vanilla experience, Sword of the Stars: The Pit (basic edition) is only $2.79.

    If you like challenging games that first become your passion, then an obsession, and finally an addiction, you need to grab the definitive package of roguelike goodness, don't miss the great deals from our Sword of the Stars: The Pit Gold Edition gem promo! The Gold Edition is highly recommended, as it will allow you to run the upcoming The Pilgrim DLC ($1.99, coming soon). Just remember not to get the Gold edition with anything else--that would be redundant. The 60% off offer lasts until Thursday, April 24, at 9:59AM GMT.

    Hi Genki -

    No...I haven't played The Walking Dead yet but would love to.  I just checked & BF doesn't have it.  I've never bought a game online except at BF.  I'm waiting on new games (hope their D&E) & hopefully The Walking Dead will be one of them.   I played Bridge to Another World:  Burnt Bridges & Fear For Sale :  Phantom Tide five times each in two days (both games have glitches) trying to figure out how to fix them but its still a 'no go'.  (Uninstalls, name changes & re-installs didn't help).  Both games froze...except for the cursor...just 'stopped',  sent me back to my desktop at the exact spot each time & the ending scene for Burnt Bridges had NO audio at all.      Gah!  I was playing the games, loving them, & the next thing I knew, I was back at my desktop with a "Fatal Error" & "We're trying to find a solution" message, but no code or explanation was given (still isn't).  I bought 4 games in the BOGO sale.  The other two CE's I had no problems with..or games I've bought since then. I emailed BF CS & as usual was told to do a Dr. Felix (yet again) after I told CS (yet again) I didn't know how to do a Dr. Felix or an attachment!)  I just want a game that works..its what I paid for! I'm seriously thinking about only buying discs from now on & if the game doesn't work, returning them for a refund.  This is beyond 'way' too old!  One game did have a 'fix' but from what I read, the fix made the game worse, so I refuse to download or install it.  Many others had the exact same problems I did for both games.  There are 8 threads of tech problems for Phantom Tide alone..I stopped counting after that.  Such a shame, both games were excellent games IMO.  I also loved Dark Parables:  Jack and the Sky Kingdom & thought it an excellent Adventure game with a lot going for it besides a very good storyline...'no' glitches!      Clap

    Oh man, I hate computer problems! Overreaction

    You must must must play The Walking Dead Season 1 at some point!  The pack at GamersGate (includes the 400 Days add-on) is currently on sale, but it occasionally goes down to even less than that ($7-something.)  The only problem with The Walking Dead is that it's Steam-only Yeah right  So, to take advantage of the GamersGate sale, you'd have to have an account with them AND with Steam!  Kind of a pain, but I already had accounts with both, so it wasn't a big deal for me Silly face

    If The Walking Dead ever becomes a non-steam game, I would LOVE to buy it.   Big smile

    @Genki -

    I hate computer problems too (with a passion)!  I shouldn't be having 'any' computer problems.  I have a new desktop specifically bought for BF games with nothing on it except BF games & 2 emails.  Everything is fully updated,  has tons of memory, I talk to Dell on a regular basis...have all the latest downloads, Adobe's, etc.  I wouldn't buy a Windows 8 after reading of so many problems with it.  I've been very fortunate as I've not had that many problems with game glitches, while a lot of others have.  When a game has the same glitches for Mac, Windows and other computers, I would think common sense would tell you the problem IS with the game. My 'main' problem is understanding tech language.  I'm not of the computer generation & it refuses to register with me.

    @Hi Frodo - Good to see you again.  I'm like you regarding The Walking Dead.  I'm not familiar with a 'non-steam' game either.  I 'am' familiar with Nintendo & WII.    Old Days

    Hey Butterfly, good to see you too.   Smile 

    The Walking Dead looks to be a good game.  But currently, it forces you to install a programme called steam - the game won't work if you don't have steam installed.  And I'm not a fan of steam.   Yeah right 

    So if\when the day comes that Walking Dead is available WITHOUT being forced to use steam... then I'll buy it.   Okay

    Classic Gem Promo: Freedom Force vs. the 3rd Reich + flash competition!
    DRM is Gamer's Kryptonite!

    Freedom Force Vs. the 3rd Reich, a real-time tactical RPG that pits a pack of quirky superheroes against the nazi supersoldiers, is 60% off on GOG.com. That's only $2.39 for the next 24 hours.

    Minuteman can jump like an overpowered cricket and deflect bullets with his psychic force field while smashing the enemies with his powerful punches. Tombstone is the master of electricity and a ghost-whisperer. Quetzalcoatl embodies an ancient vengeful Aztec deity. Bullet can move so fast, that many people believe he can be in several places at a time. Those are only few of many superhuman operatives known as the Freedom Force. Their new, somewhat unexpected mission: to go back in time and stop the nazis from winning the World War II. A task that would've been much easier if the Third Reich didn't have its own super-soldiers.

    Freedom Force vs. the 3rd Reich combines RPG character management and development with real-time tactics and stylish comic book-like graphics. It offers many cleverly designed missions which call for skillful use of your characters' unique super-abilities. And, if the original cast of heroes doesn't meet your expectation, you can always create one yourself, giving him or her a unique look, and a set of powers. Finally, make sure to check out the story-driven multi-player scenarios when you finish the single player campaign.

    Zip up your costumes, iron your capes, and get ready to kick some Nazi butts in Freedom Force Vs. the 3rd Reich for only $2.39 until Tuesday, April 29, at 9:59 AM GMT.

    EXTRA! Flash-competition:
    Freedom Force Vs. the 3rd Reich comes with a versatile character creation tool, that let's you design your very own golden age-style comic superhero. We've been thinking about a hero that represents what GOG.com stands for: Guardian of Games, a keeper of the gaming archives, a bringer of joy, and mankind's first line of defense against DRM. So, how should Guardian of Games look like? Show us your custom-made character here, in the forum thread, before the promo ends (use of custom textures allowed!). We'll choose three best entries and award 3 gift codes for $9.99 games to the best, 2 to the second, and 1 to the third-best entry. Start channeling Kirby, Lee, and Kane and--most importantly--have fun!

    ndie Gem Promo: Octodad: Dadliest Catch
    Boneless, not spineless!

    Octodad: Dadliest Catch, a heart-touching story of a Nautical-American struggling to be the best parent and husband dry land has ever seen while keeping his true nature from his loved ones, is available 40% off on GOG.com. That's only $8.99 for the next 24 hours!

    Octodad: Dadliest Catch is about destruction, deception, and fatherhood. The player controls Octodad, a dapper octopus masquerading as a human, as he goes about daily life. Octodad's existence is a constant struggle, as he must master mundane tasks with his unwieldy boneless tentacles while simultaneously keeping his cephalopodan nature a secret from his human family. In this original, imaginative indie title, you'll be challenged to live through a full day in Octodad's life, and even venture outside the house. There's tons of physics toys to play with. Jointed objects, springs, slippery surfaces, and more! Combine that with visual style inspired by the American 1950's aesthetic (but with futuristic twists), and what you get is an appealing bundle of slapstick fun you will never forget.

    Wrap oll of your available arms around Octodad: Dadliest Catch on GOG.com, for only $8.99. The 40% off Gem Promo offer lasts until Thursday, May 1, at 9:59AM GMT.

    Classic Gem Promo: SiN Gold
    Forgive me, Father, for I have...

    Pick up SiN Gold on GOG.com 60% off for just $3.99 in today's Classic Gem Promo.

    You have until 6 May 2014 at 09:59 AM GMT to get this fantastic run and gun FPS that's known for being over the top. More explosions, more weird 90's jokes, and more fun, all packed into one little download for just $3.99. The Gold version of the game includes the base game and SiN: Wages of Sin (which we assume is about you taking a 9-to-5 job as a corporate stooge for SiNTEK).

    You are Colonel John Blade, head of the most prominent private protection agency in Freeport. Elexis Sinclaire--the CEO of SiNTEK--has decided that she needs to wage holy war against private security contractors like you. She's amassed an army of mutants via a DNA-altering street drug. Now it's up to you to make the world a better place--or at least get rid of Elexis. For Colonel John Blade, that amounts to about the same thing.

    Give evil and a city full of mutants the old what-for in today's classic Gem Promo for just $3.99.

    Indie Gem Promo: The Shivah
    The Way of the Rabbi

    The Shivah, an original and mature adventure game with a New York Rabbi investigating the killing of an ex-member of his synagogue, now with highly enhanced pixel-art graphics, is available on GOG.com for $2.49 (50% off the full price) until 9:59 AM GMT May 8th.

    For any Jew, it's a great mitzvah to visit the house of a departed acquaintance during the week of mourning--the Shivah, and pay respect to the avels. But when you are a Rabbi, it's more than that: it's a duty. Especially, if the deceased unexpectedly left you a large sum of money, even though you didn't part ways in friendship. If the police suspects you had something to do with a murder, it would be meshugge not to try and clear your name. But when you are a Rabbi, it's more than that: it's a duty. Your synagogue looks up to you, after all. They may like you, or not. They may respect you, or not. They may listen to you, or not, but there must be no doubt in their minds that you are a good Jew. It's natural for any man to ponder upon the nature of morality and reassess the important things in life, when faced with a dark mystery and a gruesome death. But when you're a Rabbi, it's more than that. It's a duty. You have to face your doubts and fears before you help others to do so. Yes, life isn't easy at all. But when you are a Rabbi, it comes with some extra challenges.

    The Shivah is a point-and-click title designed by Dave Gilbert of Wadjet Eye Games, one of the modern adventure game power-houses. Initially executed in Adventure Game Studio it received a lot of praise from both gamers and gaming media, despite the simplistic visuals of the original 2006 version. It was welcomed as a mature and thought-provoking experience, as well as an unique insight into the contemporary Jewish culture. Pair that with a gripping, non-linear crime story and you've got a title unlike any other. Now, seven years after its initial release, this intriguing title is making a comeback, in the so called "Kosher Edition", sporting higher resolution pixel-art graphics made from scratch to make the game look as good as we came to expect from Wadjet Eye titles. MP3 soundtrack included!

    As Rabbi Russell Stone attend The Shivah of Jack Lauder, and solve the mystery of his untimely death, while facing some of your own demons, for $2.49 (50% off the full price) until 9:59 AM GMT May 8th.
