It’s been said before, but developer Obsidian Entertainment are certainly the busy bunch these past couple of years. As if their continued work on Grounded and a follow-up to 2019’s The Outer Worlds wasn’t enough, the team have a third project that they’ve today decided to show off in the form of Pentiment. And while smaller in scale, the visual style is certainly one to take notice of.
Taking inspiration from medieval manuscripts and woodcut print-making, Pentiment centers around Andreas Maler, an artist who on his adventures across 16th century Bavaria, finds himself caught amidst a growing social unrest where murders and scandals are rampant. We won’t have long to wait to see how Obsidian’s latest venture shapes up. Pentiment releases across Xbox Series X/S & PC, this November. Check out the game’s announcement trailer below.
