About four years ago, I worked as an administrative assistant for an indie video game publisher named Games Omniverse. Part of my job was to not only update all of the game design documents on the company’s internal wiki, but to write some articles for the company blog about games, specifically adventure games.
Writing those articles rekindled my love for adventure gaming, so when I was offered a review copy of Unavowed, the latest from Wadjet Eye Games, I jumped at the chance to not only review it, but to get an interview with its creator Dave Gilbert. All the show notes are under the jump.
0:01 – VidCast begins
1:13 – Introduction to Wadjet Eye Games and Dave Gilbert
- REVIEW: Resonance discussion and review – Ah, I was mistaken. It was former GOA contributors Jonathan Cherlin and Jill Pullara who reviewed this game. You should still check it out, though, as it was programmed entirely by Wadjet Eye’s CTO, Janet Gilbert.
9:15 – Gameplay begins
- The Blackwell series – This link goes to GOG.com, because DRM-free games are awesome.
- REVIEW: Wot I Think: The Blackwell Epiphany – This review from Rock Paper Shotgun covers not just the last game in the Blackwell series, but also serves as a good review for the series as a whole. Spoiler-free.
