Shardlight is the latest game from Wadjet Eye Games, publisher of The Blackwell Epiphany, Resonance and Gemini Rue (to name but a few). Another old-school pixel-art point-and-click adventure game (try saying that five times in a row!), Shardlight is set 20 years after a cataclysmic disaster has levelled the city Amy Wellard lives in. She’s now slowly dying of Green Lung, a disease that is wiping out the population at an alarming rate. Vaccine is in short supply, rationed by a totalitarian government that favours the rich… but that won’t stop Amy fighting for her life.
