A Golden Wake is a retro-styled adventure game coming to PC this fall from Grundislav Games (Ben Jordan: Paranormal Investigator) and Wadjet Eye Games (Blackwell series, Gemini Rue, etc.). Since you've expressed interest in Wadjet Eye's games in the past, I wanted to reach out and make sure A Golden Wake is on your radar.
 
When you think of the Roaring Twenties, maybe you picture Gatsby's lavish New York parties or gun-toting mobsters in Chicago... but what about sunny Florida?! A Golden Wake is set in the real-life location of Coral Gables, a Miami suburb that experienced an unprecedented real estate boom in the 1920s. Playing as hopeful entrepreneur Alfie Banks, you'll try to point and click your way to fame and fortune with the mob on your back, the Great Depression on the horizon, and Florida's lucrative waterfront just one hurricane away from total devastation.
 
Like all of Wadjet Eye's games, A Golden Wake has story and puzzle driven gameplay, retro graphics, and a point-and-click UI just like you remember from the "golden age" adventures made by developers like Sierra, LucasArts, and Revolution.
