Anmeldelser

“The Shivah fits a compelling moral conscience over a tight decision tree, and compared to [other titles], its rewards are subtler and more satisfying.”
B – Onion AV Club

“It's in games like this that gaming really starts to measure up to conventional literature for emotional and intellectual integrity.”
PC Gamer

“The Shivah's interesting clues system, well-written dialog, logical puzzles and fascinating commentary make it easy to recommend.”
4/5 – Adventure Gamers

Om spillet

Russell Stone is a Jewish Rabbi at a poor synagogue in New York City. He is a devout man with a problem. Membership is way down and he lacks the funds to keep his synagogue open. Things are looking very bleak, and he has grown progressively more cynical and bitter with the passage of time.

Just as he is on the verge of packing it all in, he receives some interesting news. A former member of his congregation has died and left the Rabbi a significant amount of money. A blessing? Or the start of something far more sinister? Can Rabbi Stone just accept the money and move on? His conscience says no. Step into his shoes as he travels all over Manhattan in his attempt to uncover the truth.

Features rabbinical conversation methods, a unique method of fighting, an original score, and three different endings!

A short but self-contained point and click adventure game telling the story of a depressed Rabbi who got entangled in a murder mystery. Despite the religious angle, the game itself doesn't get too deep into Judaism and stays on the surface while focusing on the investigation. Some elements of the story appeared as either lazy stereotypes (the Italian mafia) or downright controversial (opposing inter-faith marriage), as the game's setting could have allow for further exploration of relevant religious topics. Ultimately, the game left me unfulfilled, aside from replaying small sections of the game to get the remaining achievements. The music is thematic and on point, but the voice overs vary from amateur to serviceable with a few glitchy lines. Worth it just for the unique setting and achievements. 3/5

Mixing the OCD of point-and-click adventure games with the OCD of Judaism is a pairing sweeter than apples and honey on Rosh Hashanah.
