Obsidian has hit the mark again: the latest digital effort from the authors of Pillars of Eternity, The Outer Worlds and Fallout New Vegas is a ‘really brilliant detective adventure! Here is our review of Pentiment, available on PC and Xbox Game Pass.
The latest work of the Californian software house fully conveys the enthusiasm, passion and commitment lavished by Josh Sawyer and companions in the realization of this kaleidoscopic slice of medieval life.
The interactive microcosm reconstructed by Obsidian in the style of the illuminated manuscripts and woodblock prints of Europe from the 16th century makes everything even more authentic, guaranteeing the emulators of the master of arms Andreas Maler to immerse themselves in the atmosphere of a work full of twists and actions that determine the destiny of an entire community, against the backdrop of a story of a thousand cultural and religious implications. All this, punctuated by a simply impeccable narrative rhythm.
At this point we just have to leave you to the video at the beginning of the article and, of course, to our review of Pentiment by Giulia Martino, with all the analyzes on the gaming experience packaged by Obsidian to make us live this inspired medieval thriller in the shadow of the Bavarian Alps.
