Newcomer to The Shivah
« on: January 24, 2012, 08:07:34 AM »
Hello all

Being a fan of the Blackwell series, I'm considering giving "The Shivah" a try. However, I'd like to know a couple of things first:

- How long the game is?

- Is the game's tone and story like Blackwell or more like Gemini Rue?

- What is exactly the "unique method of fighting" mentioned in the game's features? Are there combat sequences like in Gemini Rue?

Thanks in advance

1) the game is a bit on the short side, but multiple endings extend playtime if you're interested in that kind of thing

2) The atmosphere seemed unique from other wadjet eye games, but if I had to pick from those two, it's probably a bit more like Gemini Rue

3) No, the fighting style is nothing like the one in Gemini Rue.  It's done through choices in a dialogue tree much like "insult sword-fighting" in the Monkey Island series.

In my opinion if you liked the Blackwell series, chances are you'll enjoy the Shivah.
