Κριτικές

“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

Σχετικά με αυτό το παιχνίδι

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!

great little adventure game.

It's got a very interesting, sort of philisophical spin, on the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ adventure game protagonist cliche. The Rabbi did what he did, not because he necessarily wanted to do it, but because he thought it was required of him by his religion and his job. And at least he's not a criminal.

The game mechanics of the ending are a little funky though.

And at the end of the game there are voiceover bloopers and some of them are really funny. I wish more adventure games would do that, I don't think I've seen it before.

This game is extremely fun, but short. I learned some "Yiddish" words and was left wanting more after completing the game. Would be great if they ever made a part 2.
I even bought this on my apple iPhone and played the iOS version as well.

$5 is steep for a 30 minute game. there's a few branching paths, but not enough to make the replay worth it.

A short but interesting game with a different story to most point & click games. The gameplay & puzzles feel a tad underdone in places but this game is mostly driven by story so it doesn't stick out. Well worth the time if you are a fan of point & clicks.

Playtime and Time/money
5$ for 3 hours of your time, and a few card drops, if you REALLY Enjoy jewish jokes, and you really love point and click adventure games, then I invite you to play, otherwise it just isn't worth your shekles, unless of course you also really like playing painfully bad games, in which case this is actually enjoyable. (personal opinion there)

Exactly what is this game?

Insert jewish joke here

point and click adventure game

Insert jewish pun here

click everything till you figure it out

Insert jewish stereotype here

Card drops are done, I guess it's time to stop playing this game.

So now the standard game rating:
  • Story: X/10 (I'm sure theres..... a... great story in there, but I tell you what, I was not enjoying it thus far, it was just a LOT of jew jokes and a LOT of running around trying to figure out dumb things, along with trying to get past trivial things in the most obscure way..)
  • Gameplay: X/10 (No. I won't do it, I won't trash a point and click game's "gameplay" elements, oh wait I kind of already did, sue me for not saying that the greatest games of all time will never include a point and click adventure.)
  • Presentation: 5/10 (It's 'aight.)
  • Soundtrack: 3/10 (forgettable)
  • Replayability: 1/10 (I'm sure people would love to take alternate routes maybe, if they would be able to make it past the first round, although I'm not sure theres any other routes you can take.)

    No.

One of the first adventures of Wadjet Eye, and it shows. It's very short and kind of basic, and the voice acting is kind of amateurish (could hear at least two people blowing into the mics) but the plot is pretty good and compelling, and so are the dialogs.

I'd advise getting it on sale. It'll give you a nice couple of hours of kosher fun.

Αν λοιπόν διψάτε για κάτι διαφορετικό και θέλετε να βιώσετε ένα Εβραϊκό νουάρ, που δεν έχει μέχρι σήμερα όμοιο του στο χώρο μας, επενδύστε άφοβα στο The Shivah. Θα σας αποζημιώσει με το παραπάνω.

Oy vey, goyim, only a complete momzer would not buy this. Look, it is only $4.99, what a wonderfull deal! Now be a good mensch and get it.
On a serious note, it is a pretty good game, just way too short.

tl;dr: Don't get it if you have a problem with short, old, adventure games. For everyone else that's even considering it, don't hesitate.

The Shivah is a short noir detective adventure starring a rabbi. It's a traditional point & click, intelligent, well-written, with an understated sense of humor. Its storytelling actually does a surprising amount of justice to the themes of faith and morality. The puzzles (sleuthing mostly, no item combinations or enviromental puzzles) are all logical and solvable, so resist the occasional headscratching and stick with them, you shouldn't really need a walkthrough. I have a special soft spot for its voice acting, I personally find it absolutely brilliant (don't miss the voiceacting bloopers!). The remastered edition completely redid the game's graphics, and if you like the WadjetEye style, you will appreciate them, even though they're nothing to phone home about. They also added new music, which I really enjoyed in how perfectly it sets the mood. Despite how short it is, The Shivah feels like a complete experience, in the same way a good short story does, so it won't leave you unsatisfied. If you are intrerested in replaying it for the achievements and the alternate endings, I'd suggest playing it with the commentary on (Kibbitz Mode), it is short and non intrusive to the playthrough and offers a bit of background story.

This game was the starting off point for WadjetEye Games (Gemini Rue, Blackwell series, Resonance, etc) and as far as I am concerned it by now belongs to the cannon for lovers of adventure games, as an interesting example for understanding the evolution of the genre and as one of the few games that touches religious topics in a mature way. I have been replaying it once in a while since it first came out and despite its small flaws, it is a lovable little gem and as much of a treat to play today as it ever was.

Didn't pay any shekels to get this, a friend goy got it for me, and I must say Toda rabah to him.
This is a very nice game, although very short, but fun to get the achievements.
Would definitevely reccomend getting this game, wether if you're jewish or not.
