A Brief History of Wadjet Eye Games
Wadjet Eye was founded in 2006 when then-amateur game maker Dave Gilbert released his first commercial adventure, The Shivah, about a disillusioned rabbi who comes into an unexpected inheritance.

A series of five supernatural mystery games followed — Blackwell LegacyBlackwell UnboundBlackwell ConvergenceBlackwell Deception, and Blackwell Epiphany — starring a spirit medium who helps unsettled ghosts cross over with help from her spectral sidekick. Gilbert’s most recent game, Unavowed, is an urban fantasy adventure set in the Blackwell universe.

Wadjet Eye also publishes games for other indie developers, including Wormwood Studios (Strangeland and Primordia), Technocrat Games (Technobabylon), XII Games (Resonance), and Joshua Nuernberger (Gemini Rue). Shardlight was developed and published by Wadjet Eye in collaboration with designer Francisco Gonzalez.

Though they were developed by different teams and have varied settings and themes, all of Wadjet Eye’s releases are unified by their point & click adventure gameplay, pixel art graphics, and engrossing stories.
