An imaginative, atmospheric setting with great art and quality voice acting, but Shardlight is by no means a great adventure game.

Shardlight is a solid old-school adventure game with an overly familiar premise.

Even though puzzles are a bit on the easy side, narration, world building and mature themes are top notch and make Shardlight a beautiful graphic adventure.

A rushed ending is really the game’s only let-down. A larger conspiracy, or more surprising reveal, might have given it a heftier punch. And it certainly needed a few more puzzles in the later stages, a bit more to do. But these are minor niggles in a really splendid adventure game of the sort we see too rarely. Grown up, well written, carefully paced, and genuinely interesting to explore.

_____________________________ “It’s sort of a combination of the post-apocalyptic feel of Fallout with some of the bizarre alternate-history aesthetics of Bioshock Infinite.

A perfectly enjoyable adventure through a dystopian wasteland, though one that misses a lot of opportunities and leaves a lot of tantalising threads dangling. Tasty, but not quite satisfying.

The game's twist is costly, as it leaves nothing else for players to discover in the nuance-less second act.

A solid point-and-click which is a worthwhile purchase for fans of the genre.

Shardlight is another excellent point-and-click adventure game from the small but fiercely dedicated and skilled bunch at Wadjet Eye Games.
