The Shivah (by Wadejet Eye Games) - adventure game for November 2013

Wadjet Eye Games indicated on their Facebook page that they plan on releasing The Shivah on iOS. In part they are transferring/remastering the game to a new engine compatible with iOS. Fingers crossed this is an indication more Wadejet Eye Games are in our future. There's no indication of device compatibility but Gemini Rue was universal and graphics for both products are lower resolution by design.

Some good news to share: The Shivah is coming to Steam. We are adding achievements and (lots of) new things to the game and aim to have it ready by Chanukah!

[In responses:]We are doing the iOS version concurrently with the update, so... soon!

Chanukah is from November 27 through December 5.

Hi, it's Janet from Wadjet Eye here!

The Shivah should be compatible with all the devices Gemini Rue was (we are using the same engine) - any iPhone, iPad, or iPod running iOS v4.3 and above.

The biggest new features are the new graphics, so here are some new screenshots to feast your eyes on

And the new trailer!

If this is indeed anything similar to Gemini Rue, it will be a sure buy for me.
