Wadjet Eye Games has announced that Unavowed, their long-awaited urban fantasy adventure, is now available for Windows and Mac.
A demon possessed you one year ago, kicking off a gory crime spree around New York City. Waking up on a stormy rooftop, you meet your saviors: the Unavowed, an underground group of supernatural guardians who have fended off darkness for centuries. Life as you knew it is over, but by joining their ranks you have a chance to reverse some of the damage you’ve done — and, if you choose wisely, to redeem yourself.
Watch the Unavowed launch trailer below:
- Shape your hero: Name the playable character, choose their gender, and pick from three origin stories to customize the protagonist. Variations in backstories and personalities provides replay value.
- Choose your party: Select two out of four companions to join you on missions across the boroughs of New York City. Each member of the Unavowed has unique skills, providing different solutions to the obstacles you’ll encounter. (But no matter who’s with you, every puzzle has a solution — there are no dead ends!)
- Follow your conscience: Difficult choices await. In Unavowed’s subtly branching storyline, your decisions could come back to help you… or haunt you.

In addition, Unavowed features hand-drawn pixel art at twice the resolution of Wadjet Eye’s previous games, an original soundtrack composed by Thomas Regin, and a voice cast that includes Logan Cunningham and SungWon Cho.
Unavowed was created by Dave Gilbert, who is best known for his Blackwell adventure game series. The game’s influences include The Dresden Files, Hellblazer, and BioWare RPGs such as Dragon Age. Former BioWare writer Jennifer Hepler provided early feedback as a story consultant.
Regularly priced at £10.99, the game is on sale for £9.89 (10% off) for the first week, from Steam, GOG, and directly from Wadjet Eye. EF Games hopes to bring you a full review of Unavowed later this month.
