The world ended on the day the bombs fell. Since then, it's always been like this: disease, hunger, death.
What's left of the people scavenge for existence under the unfeeling gaze of the elegant, masked Aristocracy. Green Lung scourges the population, only briefly held at bay by the precious vaccine - and there's never enough to go around.
Amy Wellard is a young mechanic drawn into the covert war between the forces of the Aristocracy and the mysterious, brutal rebel Danton. Can she play both sides - or will she be forced to choose? Is Danton right that the Aristocracy are hiding something important - and if so, what?

Nostalgic of King’s Quest
I used to play Sierra games’ King’s Quest as a kid/teen and the game play and look of Shardlight is very similar - brought back fun memories! Though it wasn’t as difficult (and sometimes frustrating), involved, or world building as the old KQ games, it was still an addicting RPG and fun/dark story. No unicorns or annoying talking owls in this one 😉 Well worth the money!
Another glorious point-and-click from WadjetEye
WadjetEye really knows what they’re doing. An extremely well-crafted world with great characters, story, and puzzles. I’m off to buy another title by them!
The most important part of a game to me is the story. I was hooked on the story from the beginning and it was exciting to uncover more and more of the story's mystery. The gameplay is fun and the puzzles are challenging but doable. Great game.
