General Information

Available on:PCOct 9, 2014

Developer: Grundislav Games

Publisher: Wadjet Eye Games

Genre: Adventure

The Roaring Twenties: a bygone era of glitz, glamour, and promise. Nowhere is this more apparent than Coral Gables, Florida. The real estate market is booming 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 finds much more than he bargained for. Based on actual events and featuring real life locations and historical figures, you must guide Alfie on his journey to reach the top of the real estate game as he deals with shady salesmen, cutthroat bootleggers, corrupt politicians, and much more, all while swept up in the events surrounding the inception of Coral Gables, The City Beautiful.

There is definitely a lot to be said for using adventure games to explore more mundane events. They don't all need a murder, or a ghost, or a time travelling robot. But I would argue they do need something more than real estate.

I had a great time with A Golden Wake and I think anyone who can appreciate an old school point-and-click adventure will too.

Though not the most pulse-pounding adventure on the market, A Golden Wake offers an authentic glimpse into one of the defining events of the 20th century. We see it all through the temporarily starry eyes of a man whose struggles were all too common in that time.

The subject matter of A Golden Wake won't match everyone's tastes, while the lower difficulty will also no doubt disappoint some adventure game enthusiasts, but A Golden Wake kept us entertained from start to finish thanks to some interesting characters, smart scripting and buckets of old school charm.
