Mic Check One, Two: Wadjet Eye Games Offering Hands-On Voiceover Assistance

Recording vocals, easy. Recording vocals properly, not quite so. Nailing that high quality voiceover... for an entire video game? Tricky and time consuming - at the best of times. Where to go then? Well, Wadjet Eye Games, having done recording sessions for a multitude of games, may not be the cream of the crop, but they're a dedicated bunch, packing a ton of experience. Oh and New York, because actor availability.

The Gritty Sci-Fi Adventure Gemini Rue Has Arrived On iOS

Stop what you’re doing right now, because Wadjet Eye Games‘ sci-fi mystery about an ex-assassin and a man with no memory has finally appeared up on the app store! What am I rambling about this time?

Cyberpunk Adventure Gemini Rue Taps Onto iOS Next Month

While the fact that Wadjet Eye Games' point 'n click hit Gemini Rue was heading to the iOS platform is not exactly a secret (anymore), until recently neither the release date nor its price tag had been made official. But at some point in the last 48 hours, all of that changed and its scheduled arrival is actually sooner than one might think (no, it's not tomorrow).

Blackwell Unbound Review

With this being the second game in the series, one might think it would act as a continuation of Rosa’s story, but that’s not exactly the case. This chapter takes place in 1973, where we find Rosa’s aunt Lauren Blackwell as the protagonist, accompanied by Joey Mallone. She’s not exactly fond of his presence and it seems that the feeling is mutual, but they have no choice but to work together since people are in need of their aid. Welcome to Blackwell Unbound.

The Blackwell Legacy Review

I’m sure that if she had a say on the matter, Rosangela Blackwell (Rosa) would prefer to simply continue her life as a freelance writer with as little drama and mystery as possible. Unfortunately fate has other plans for her, because not long after her aunt’s death, she starts having frequent headaches to which there seem to be no reason or rhyme. That is, until an old friend of the family suddenly shows up, at which point Rosa’s life gets much more interesting.

Earlier today, the veil was lifted on the AGS forums and Blackwell Epiphany was announced, with both screenshots and a few plot details.

An Adventurous Tale of Two Robots: Primordia Is Out

Primordia
There are plenty of post-apocalyptic games nowadays, but to the best of my knowledge, very few are point ‘n’ click adventures, which is exactly what Primordia is. The story revolves around Horatio and Crispin, two robots content with their everyday life in the wastelands, when suddenly all that changes dramatically as their very existence is threatened by the theft of their power core – robots need power to function, after all. Their only options now are to either recover the stolen energy source or find a replacement.
