Adventure game Pentiment announced
A 16th-century narrative adventure from Obsidian Entertainment
Obsidian Entertainment and Microsoft have announced Pentiment, a 16th-century narrative adventure game.
In Pentiment, you play Andreas Maler, a journeyman artist working in the bygone scriptorium of Kiersau Abbey during a time of great social unrest. While finishing his masterpiece, Andreas inadvertently becomes entangled in a series of murders that take place over 25 years. Peasants, thieves, craftsmen, monks, nuns, nobles, and even saints must be investigated and interrogated to expose the truth.
It will be up to players to decide Andreas’ choices, from his educational background and lifestyle to how he investigates the murders. Every decision and accusation he makes carries consequences that will impact the tightly-knit Alpine community for generations to come.
Pentiment will release this November on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Windows 10/11, and Steam for $19.99 USD. It will also be available on day one with Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass.
