It wasn't too long ago that they announced The Raven, King ART's follow-up to the highly acclaimed The Book of Unwritten Tales -- a game that caught gamers by surprise being a lot better than it looked going in. The gnomes behind its creation today released the debut trailer for the game, as well as the first screenshots and artwork, and we though you might like to have a look-see at those...
First check out the trailer below:
Right, pretty cool, we have to admit... And now that you are in a good and receptive mood for new game stuff, check out these screens for the game:
In addition to the amazing artwork that has been transformed into the game world in The Raven, we have a sample of the concept artwork that made up the art boards that were used in the planning and development stage of the game:
If you are an old-school gamer you will very likely remember fondly the sort of path-based mystery and adventure games that The Raven pays homage to -- this used to be the proverbial Top O'the Heap of gaming back in the day, and seeing the format return and with such a high quality of art and world design is a very gratifying event.
About The Raven
Set across 1960's Europe, The Raven is a stunning fast-paced point-and-click adventure journeying through thrilling and dense atmospheres with the aim of catching the infamous art burglar -- The Raven -- as the players follow The Raven's trademark black feather clues to capture the thief and to protect a legendary sapphire, called the "Eye of the Sphinx" on its journey from Switzerland to Egypt.
This criminal tale for PC, Mac and consoles -- full of twists and turns -- immerses the player in both sides of the story, the investigators' and the thief's, thereby combining elements of a 'whodunit' with a heist story.
