Giulia Zamboni , who currently works as lead producer at Supermassive Games, has published a message of thanks to Josh Sawyer and his team, underlining how proud she was to participate in this particular and valuable project.
For the uninitiated, Pentiment is Obsidian’s new investigative RPG. The protagonist is a skilled miniaturist who, over the course of twenty-five years, finds himself involved in a series of murders at Kiersau Abbey. The choices he makes will impact the storyline, and every decision he makes will have lasting consequences that will lead him to the center of a dark conspiracy.
In our review , we underlined how “ Pentiment is, without ifs and buts, one of the best productions of this 2022. Embellished by an artistic direction of great depth and an extremely brilliant writing, the narrative adventure by Josh Sawyer and Hannah Kennedy skilfully combines different styles, genres and expressive solutions to give life to an engaging story, full of charisma and truly one of a kind. Definitely a title not suitable for everyone, but capable of surprising and enchanting anyone who will even try to immerse themselves in this atypical adventure with medieval contours.
Pentiment is available now on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and in the Xbox Game Pass catalog.
