Vienna, AUSTRIA (August 27th 2013) – Nordic Games is excited to announce that Ancestry Of Lies, the second chapter of the point and click adventure The Raven – Legacy Of A Master Thief, is now available for PC via Steam, and will be available later this year in digital format for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
In the second chapter, players experience the ’heist’ part of the story for the first time and switch perspectives.
Ancestry Of Lies can be purchased from Steam as a Standard Edition priced £20.99 and is also available as a Digital Deluxe version for £24.99 including the official soundtrack, ‘making of booklet’, story book and printable posters. Both versions will unlock the first episode The Eye Of The Sphinx instantly and will also unlock the third episode on September 24th.
“It’s been incredibly fun to work alongside the guys at KING Art on The Raven and the reception of the game has been fantastic,” said Martin Kreuch, Producer at Nordic Games. “One of our objectives with this game was to keep players guessing, right up until the very end of chapter 3, and from the community feedback we’ve received we’re on track with that.”
“In the second chapter of the game we’ve crammed it full lots of twists and turns that will keep players guessing. This part of the story is a real gem; even though we want to progress with the genre, we also wanted to keep the classic elements that players already love,” said Jan Theysen, Creative Director at KING Art. “We’ve struck a fine balance between focusing on speeding up the gameplay and creating a deep and interesting story which charms players, but also broadens our audience.”
The Raven – Legacy Of A Master Thief is a crime tale set across 1960s Europe which will immerse players in both sides of the story, as players adopt the role of the thief and the investigator. Elements of a whodunit-mystery and a heist-story are combined as players follow The Raven’s trademark black clues.
The daring hunt across Europe is a story that features more camera shots and character animation than all of KING Art’s previous point and click adventures put together. Journeying through thrilling and dense atmospheres with the aim of catching the thief players will follow his trademark black feather clues to capture him and protect the legendary sapphire, the "Eye of the Sphinx".
To learn about the back story to The Raven, there is a free Interactive Graphic Novel available to play where players can learn about the bitter rivalry between The Raven and Legrand.
