Hear ye, hear ye, all Xbox Live/Xbox 360 aficionados. It’s your turn to follow those black feathers!

Today, Nordic Games is releasing all three episodes of The Raven on Xbox Live for Xbox 360. A Sony Playstation version is planned for Q1 2014.

The Raven — Legacy of a Master Thief takes players across 1960s Europe in pursuit of the infamous art burglar called The Raven. Follow his trademark black feathers in a quest that will lead to thrilling atmospheres and stunning environments.

Combining a chase whodunit with the story of a heist full of risks and rewards, The Raven gives players a chance to step into the shoes of both investigator and thief. The influence of both Agatha Christie and gangster movies from the ’60s and ’70s can be felt throughout the game.

The console version promises to keep players on the edge of their seats.

“We’ve put everything into the console version to deliver the same experience on different peripheral devices,” says Martin Kreuch, Producer at Nordic Games. “Working with the Unity Engine opens a lot of opportunities in this regard, but like almost every engine, also creates certain challenges. Together with the KING Art team, however, we managed to overcome them.”

“It was a unique challenge to translate the classic controls of an Adventure game to something that work well on consoles,” says Arne von Öhsen, Programmer at KING Art. “We think we managed exactly that and eagerly await the feedback from the console community.”

The game has already been released for Windows, Mac and Linux.

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.
