Originally released in 2006, The Shivah has a strangely serious premise in that it revolves around a Rabbi as a main character, exploring themes related to the Jewish faith through adventure game mechanics. As a non-religious person with little exposure to these worlds, I've found it to be oddly captivating. The "Kosher Edition" is an updated version with better pixel art that's more in line with the other titles Wadjet has brought to the App store like Gemini Rue [$4.99].

The Shivah: Kosher Edition will be available in the New Zealand App Store at 7:00 AM Eastern time, before it slowly filters through the various iTunes region and finally appearing for download in the US App Store at 11:00 PM tonight. Stay tuned for links to both download the game, as well as forum links to discuss it with members of the TouchArcade community.

    I think you mean "Rabbi" as a main character and not "Rabbit." :)

      You caught that too?
      I was wondering what the hell a rabbit has to do with being Jewish.

        Suddenly it makes more sense.

    Can't wait! We definitely need more quality and classic adventure point and click games on the AppStore.... That's all I look out for. There are too many Hidden Object games or escape games. This is right up my alley...

    I really thought this was going to be a game about the show "The League", a bit disappointed now. I'm sure this is quite fun as well though, but i can't play as taco :(

    My guess on the password is YENTE, Yiddish for busybody. But I'll never know if I'm right because I won't be downloading this game.
