The Shivah for iOS

After porting over their classic Gemini Rue to iOS, it's easy to ask whether Wadjet Eye Games would be porting any of their other intriguing and critically acclaimed adventure games to the platform. It turns out that they are, and the next on the list is their first game, The Shivah. The reason? Dave Gilbert has responded to the question by admitting that it's his company's shortest and simplest game, and seeing his wife has just had a baby, it makes sense.

The Shivah is a rather unique tale putting you in the shoes of a Rabbi who looks to be accused of murder. From the trailers, he's certainly the most Clint Eastwood-esque Rabbi I've ever encountered. None the less, Wadjet Eyes's games port over to a touch screen well, and are always highly entertaining entries into the adventure genre. If like myself you have missed this early game from the studio, this port will be a great reason to play it. And now, I leave you with the PC trailer to tide you over.
