“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.”

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

关于这款游戏

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!

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.

Although The Shivah is a very short graphic adventure (you can get through it in about an hour or so), don't let that turn you away. The writing, characters, and dialogue are excellent throughout, and while the puzzles are simplistic, they don't detract from the storytelling one bit. This may make the game border more on "interactive novel" than "graphic adventure", but as mentioned, that doesn't hurt the game's storytelling.

As few games hit up the content that The Shivah does (the Jewish faith and what it means to have faith in oneself), this is an experience worth undertaking.

One of Wadjet Eye's very very early games, with a simple story that lasts about 30 - 50 minutes at most. My added playtime was for getting steam trading cards. I used a guide to figure out one of the endings but more or less managed it fine otherwise.

Its hard to say too much about such a short game. The story is passable, the music is passable, and the few puzzles can be a tiny bit clunky because you dont have too much time to get used to the game, but none of it is bad. Probably best to wait for a sale if you want it and even then consider picking up Wadjet Eye's more robust later titles, this one is just a bit too short.

There are a few failstates in the game involving the death of the main character, which revert you back to your last save should you encounter them. They fit the setting and choices invovled, but they do involve death by gunshot to the head and there is the option to murder both the villains when they are encountered in a few points. Also, if you wish to run the game in windowed mode you will need to run a setup exe in the game folder, but nothing any experienced PC gamer will have trouble with.

90% of the objects in this game are "I have no reason to use that", and most of the dialog is "I don't know anything about that". Woo, awesome.

Within the first 5 minutes, you're expected to remember a name that came up in conversation and to "google it" on the game's search engine. If you weren't paying attention or didn't write down the exact spelling of the name, you have to restart and pay closer attention.

It was then that I discovered that with a good walkthrough, you can plow through this horse ♥♥♥♥ of a game in about 25 minutes.

*Slight Spoilers*

The Shivah starts out very promising. Atmospherically, it perfectly captures the mundane life of the city, but mixes in heady philosophical questions and a dash of murder. Throughout the story, Rabbi Stone wrestles with what it means to be a "true Jew" while figuring out why a recently murdered acquaintaince left his failing temple a large portion of inheritance money. The game takes you to a few locations in NYC, set to slow croning music that perfectly captures the noir theme. The characters are colorful, if not just a teeny bit stereotypical.

The game is your average point and click, but the game is based less on exploration and more on discovering clues through dialogue trees. It requires a heavy amount of critical thought otherwise you will definitely reach a point where you hit a wall and cannot advance without a walkthrough or something. The difficulty is refreshing, but certain solutions to the puzzles are extremely obscured and will frustrate you. However, if not for these, the game could probably be completed in 10-30 minutes on a blind run.

However, a critical junction of the game wherein it turns into a sort of action drama is where the game falls apart. Fighting is done through a series of dialogue trees, with your choices having minimal effect outside of lose conditions and achievements. It is at this point where the game tonally shifts completely and becomes almost a self-parody. The two fights in the game center upon a sort of tongue-in-cheek reference to rabbinical procedure (answering questions with questions) and characters are punished for not adhering to this. The motivations of the characters quickly unravel as the game becomes increasingly more ridiculous.

The games abrupt ending leaves you wondering if Rabbi Stone really learned anything; and I can't help but think if this game was expanded an hour more, chose to handle the action sequences more tactfully, and actually dwelled more on the rift between Stone and the changing realities of Jewish culture it would be an effective vehicle for a compelling story. But maybe its for the better that they did not dwell too much on the religious undertones. Stone is a good example of a flawed character and one of the best aspects of the game.

Don't pay full price for this.

Wadjet Eye出品,他们一直在做这种短小精美的像素风格Point & Click独立冒险游戏,不过和他们的其它作品比起来,The Shivah的流程要显得更加短,不卡住的话整个流程两三小时游戏时间就能走完了

主角Russell Stone是一个住在曼哈顿的犹太拉比,他的教会基本没什么人来,导致他遇到了严重的经济问题,就在走投无路之时,一个8年前被Stone赶出教会的前教友Lauder却被人谋杀,但过去一直憎恨着Stone的被害人却给Stone和他的教会留下了一笔巨款,虽然招来了警方的怀疑,这笔钱确实拯救了Stone的教会,不过Stone却不想不闻不问去使用这笔来历不明的钱,于是他开始进行对这场谋杀案的调查,同时也作为对前教友的凭悼

标题Shivah是犹太教中亲人死后七日守丧的意思,Stone的调查就开始于Shivah Call——对去世者亲属的慰问,游戏中还会用到一些其它犹太语的梗(作为线索还附赠了一个常用语的小翻译单),所有成就都是以犹太语或者德语单词命名。整个游戏最大的捏他是拉比常用的回答问题方式——拉比总用问题来回答问题,这点至关重要,除了某成就以外连Boss战都用了这个梗,游戏开场引用的也是这样一个老笑话——有人问拉比:“为什么拉比总是用问题来回答问题?”拉比答道:“为什么不?”

对话有全程配音而且十分有趣,有些角色还有口音非常带感,人物刻画也相当成功,另外故事分歧牵扯到一些道德选项,还带有有一些不难的谜题,加上BGM也很好,所以感觉麻雀虽小五脏俱全。可惜还是因为流程太短无法充分发挥,出场角色数量很有限,故事展开也显得过于简单直接,以至于游戏的调查系统显得略鸡肋,比如有类似于逆转检事的线索关联功能,但游戏中竟然只用到了一次!道具栏基本也只是提供额外信息,只有上述提到过的小翻译单和名片,和场景物件间的互动也几乎可以忽略不计,多数情况下都由对话主导,其它情况最常用的也就用电脑收集些信息

总之,考虑到流程过短,除了Wadjet Eye的粉丝以外,不推荐全价入这个游戏,但如果你能通过某些途径低价入手,并且不讨厌这种欧美点击冒险类游戏的话,那么依然推荐一玩,毕竟游戏素质本身还是很不错的

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.
