Vienna, AUSTRIA (June 25th 2013) –  Whilst Nordic Games is doing the final shakedown for its new point-and-click adventure, developer KING Art has just shared a new blog in its dev diary detailing the four biggest changes in The Raven – Legacy of a Master Thief.

“The Raven is the most complex adventure we have made to date. We have tried a lot of new things and put a lot of work into the game. The result is approximately 20 hours of a mystery adventure with a convoluted story, in which you play both the investigator and the delinquent,” said Jan Theysen, Cofounder & Creative Director of KING Art.

The Raven – Legacy of a Master Thief will be released in three chapters: first chapter – July 23rd 2013, second chapter – August 27th 2013, third chapter – September 24th 2013. The boxed version including all three chapters will be released October 24th 2013.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
