Recensioni

“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

Riguardo questo gioco

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 very nice little point and click game which focuses on Jews, or mainly, the Rabbis. It has a simple yet good story with some memorable characters and on the way it provides some basic knowledge about the Jews to the goyims. Its just $5 and it's worth it.

A fun point and click game, although most of the puzzles are simply doing google searches, the story holds up and the multiple choices given are interesting enough for me to recommend this game.

An enjoyable narrative experience following a failing rabbi and his equally failing synagogue, it's fairly a bleak look into a man with a troubled past and what feels like a fundamental loss of faith that he can regrow as he investigates the death of a former member of his congregation that has left him a significant amount of money through his estate.

The story itself is actually fairly dull and pretty predictable but the game itself is heavily dialogue laden - near all conversation and text is as if it were a rabbi talking, with some "puzzles" even solved by taking the rabbinical answer to whatever situation is posed. That's really the key to the game: the dialogue and the development of Rabbi Stone as a character, they are both brilliantly written and pick up the slack in the story.

Though, it is a point and click game with a few text and combat puzzles - usually based around remembering key facts around people and placing them into the in-game equivalent of Google at your computer terminal so paying attention is actually a must. The downside to this, is the fact you normally have to travel back to your office to find the information required to progress in the story.

I would recommend this game to people that enjoy art house, narrative driven, emotionally charged indie games. It's a very niche product, but I would absolutely recommend it to those already on the fence.
