Critic Reviews for A Golden Wake

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.

Alfred Banks is a very charismatic character but it is just a shame he is not a bigger player and always feels like the background man or errand boy. Additionally, the length is a bit of a shame. Still, this is a game that one needs to look at. Oh, and if indeed bought, keep an eye out for nice looking grandmothers…

A Golden Wake is not the kind of adventure game that will convert non-believers any time soon, but those who enjoy the genre and can stomach its lo-fi visuals will definitely be entertained by its numerous quips and lighthearted attitude, as well as challenged by its more somber undertones.

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.
