'A Golden Wake' Gets Release Date - Trailer

A Golden Wake is a nostalgic point-and-click adventure that spans two dramatic decades in American history.

The Roaring Twenties: a bygone era of glitz, glamour, and promise. In Coral Gables - a booming housing development near Miami, Florida - the real estate market is taking off and even an ordinary guy like Alfie Banks has a chance to strike it rich. But with the mob on his back, the Great Depression on the horizon, and the Sunshine State's idyllic waterfront only a hurricane away from total devastation, Alfie's quest will not be an easy one in A Golden Wake.

Set in the era of Gatsby with a plot that includes real people, locations, and events, A Golden Wake has story- and puzzle-driven gameplay, retro-styled pixel art, and a point-and-click interface reminiscent of classics like King's Quest and Monkey Island. Alfie's power of persuasion will play a unique role as he analyzes other characters' attitudes and weaknesses to figure out the best way to approach them.

Preorder A Golden Wake and receive a free copy of the official soundtrack — a swinging jazz score evocative of the era — instantly! You’ll also get a free Steam key that you can redeem at launch, as well as access to a DRM-free download from the Wadjet Eye Games website.
