Wadjet Eye Games' rabbinical adventure The Shivah is getting an enhanced edition re-release next week. Called the Kosher Edition, the game features entirely new art and music, and will have presumably been slaughtered in accordance with the proper rituals. It's also being displayed in the shop windows of GOG, Steam, and the Wadjet Eye site, which should mean easy access and enhanced visibility to a great point 'n click.

What with the bright lights and loud noises of the PlayStation conference, it would be easy to miss a far more exciting announcement made last night. Wadjet Eye's Dave Gilbert took to the Adventure Game Studio forum to reveal Blackwell Epiphany, the fifth entry in the excellent Blackwell adventure series.
Everyone and their dog-eardrum-bursting grocery store holiday music may be taking on a seasonal theme right now, but I think it's fair to say that every season is indie bundle season. Case in point: The Indie Royale Xmas Bundle is the 46752th indie bundle I've reported on—or somewhere thereabouts. Not that I'm complaining, mind you. Four excellent indies for (as of now) four bucks? If that's somehow upsetting, you may just be the unholy offspring of Ebenzer Scrooge and the Grinch.
Currently, the bundle's offering Dino D-Day, Eets, The Oil Blue, and The Blackwell Trilogy: Remastered. As per usual with Indie Royale, the price fluctuates depending on whether you beat the minimum or pinch your pennies so tightly that Abraham Lincoln angrily asks just what the hell your problem is. As such, it's a good idea to make your purchase ASAP, as the price is almost certain to increase.
