Today’s Spotlight is on Unavowed, the latest point and click from Wadjet Eye Games, a small indie studio that seeks to revive the Golden Age of PC adventure games.
Unavowed tells the story of the newest member of a secret society dedicated to protecting New York City and it’s citizens from supernatural threats. After having your body possessed by a demon that left a trail of destruction in its wake, the Unavowed have offered you a new home, a chance at salvation, and the power to prevent future tragedies committed by the forces of evil.
Here’s a rundown of the game:
A demon possessed you one year ago. Since that day, you unwillingly tore a trail of bloodshed through New York City. Your salvation comes in the form of the Unavowed – an ancient society dedicated to stopping evil.
You are free, but your world is in tatters. You have no home, no friends, and are wanted by the police. Your old life is gone, but perhaps you can start a new one. Join the ranks of the Unavowed, and fight against the oncoming darkness.
