Unavowed from Wadjet Eye Games arrives on Linux

By - | Views: 11,693

Wadjet Eye Games seem to be on a roll lately for Linux support. First we saw upgrades and new ports of The Blackwell Bundle, then Gemini Rue and now we have Unavowed. A good time to be a point and click adventure game fan.

"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."

-Added new tracking system of player party choices.
-Loading older saves will patch them and grant the achievements properly.

Dreams are coming true.
I've heard this considered to be among the best point and click adventures.
Let's find out why.

Fingers crossed they're going to do all of them. Resonance has a Linux version on GOG, I think, but not on Steam because GOG packaged it themselves back in the day.

Well they got Steam sales for these ones from me even though I'd bought the GOG versions before, so they'll get at least one more Steam sale of the others that they do as well.

Great to see them giving their back catalogue some Linux love. I bought this in addition to Blackwell Epiphany just before the weekend, thanks to the new ports, and I enjoyed playing through Epiphany a lot. I realize this one isn't really my cup of tea, after playing about an hour of it, since I don't care much for choices in adventure games, but I'm enjoying it so far, nevertheless.
