[quote by=”Martin Kreuch, Producer at Nordic Games”]It’s been incredibly fun to work alongside the guys at KING Art on The Raven and the reception of the game has been fantastic. One of our objectives with this game was to keep players guessing, right up until the very end of chapter 3, and from the community feedback we’ve received we’re on track with that.[/quote]
[quote by=”Jan Theysen, Creative Director at KING Art”]In the second chapter of the game we’ve crammed it full lots of twists and turns that will keep players guessing. This part of the story is a real gem; even though we want to progress with the genre, we also wanted to keep the classic elements that players already love. We’ve struck a fine balance between focusing on speeding up the gameplay and creating a deep and interesting story which charms players, but also broadens our audience.[/quote]
The Raven – Legacy Of A Master Thief is a crime tale set across 1960s Europe which will immerse players in both sides of the story, as players adopt the role of the thief and the investigator. Elements of a whodunit-mystery and a heist-story are combined as players follow The Raven’s trademark black clues.
The daring hunt across Europe is a story that features more camera shots and character animation than all of KING Art’s previous point and click adventures put together. Journeying through thrilling and dense atmospheres with the aim of catching the thief players will follow his trademark black feather clues to capture him and protect the legendary sapphire, the “Eye of the Sphinx”.
We’re currently playing through Chapter 2 and will have a review for you later this month. To find out what we thought of the game so far in our review of The Raven Chapter 1. For more information on the game, visit the official The Raven website.
