From Obsidian and game director Josh Sawyer Pentiment is a new "16th-century narrative adventure" coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Xbox Game Pass this November. The art-style and presentation for this one is striking, taking on the form of manuscripts, prints, and other pieces of art and history come to life.
Take a look.
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. One day he may be digging up a dead monk in the abbey cemetery, the next might be spent eavesdropping on peasant gossip at the ladies’ spinning bee. Every decision and accusation he makes carries consequences that will impact the tightly-knit Alpine community for generations to come.
A combat-free murder mystery unlike any other, this is something very original and very cool coming from the renowned Xbox studio.
