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?

Rock, Paper, Shotgun: "Grown up, well written, carefully paced, and genuinely interesting to explore."

Adventure Gamers: "A dystopia with style." 4/5
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."

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.
Good puzzles, challenging but doable. Great voice acting, original post apocalyptic world - not same old same old. Really good game.
Not Wadjet's best
I just finished the sublime Technobabylon, and was excited to see another Wadjet offering. But this looks and plays as if Dave Gilbert's mom forced him to publish a game by his little cousin.
The storyline is very odd and internally inconsistent. Why and how would survivors of nuclear war adopt Williamsburg colonial dress? Why do all the cars look like they are from the 1930s?
The puzzles are either incomprehensible or blatantly obvious.
The first Wadjet game I was not instantly addicted to. I have to force myself to play it to get my $5 worth.
