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?

Just Aventure - "If you're looking for a classic point-and-click adventure, then you’ll love Shardlight. The story, characters, voice acting, and music are a treat."
Couldn't put it down!
I am embarrassed to say that I finished this game within 24 hours of downloading it, and that's saying a lot, because it's a pretty meaty story with lots to do! All of the puzzles were interesting and organic, nothing was frustrating or kept me from moving forward. I've played every single one of Wadjet Games, and I realize that the strongest games have female protagonists - not sure why, but the characters seem to be more interesting than their stoic male counterparts (with exception to Russell Stone and Joey Malone). I'm very impressed! Dare I say that I wish the writer would incorporate a side romance story in future games for some levity? Think Guybrush and Elaine. Indiana Jones and Marion. And since I noticed the strong influence of Hunger Games on Shard Light, what about Katniss and Peeta / Gale? A love triangle would certainly make thinks interesting. ;-)
Thank you for developing such compelling games. I am a forever fan!
A little less impressed, glitchy save system
Wadjet Eye adventures are awesome. I've bought them all. I was hesitant to buy this one, yet another post-apocalyptic story. Yawn. I'm too early in the game to comment on how that's going though.
One problem I've had is the auto save system. It's worked very well in previous games. Not with this one. When returning to the game, even after briefly switching to another app, it resets the app and often loses my place. I'm using the large-size iPad Pro so that seems odd. Anyone else have this problem?
I really love these Wadget adventure games!
Point and click fun with great narration and pixel art! The backgrounds are georgeous. Font is nice and easy to read, which is rare for pixel fonts. (2cents idea:Maybe select even higher rest fonts in update? even a ttf? old eyeballs here. )
Game was well worth it. I might have to hit a puzzle walkthrough soon. Great fun, gorgeous work!
