Episodic adventure game “The Raven” coming to PSN this July
King Art, developer of the adventure game Book of Unwritten Tales, have announced a new episode series entitled The Raven – Legacy of a Master Thief. A three part adventure series set to debut in July with releases in August and September to follow.
“Paris, 1960: The young French investigator Nicolas Legrand is closer than anyone has ever been to tracking down the ‘Raven’, a master thief wanted all over the world. He single-handedly prevents the crook from pulling off a coup, followed by a pursuit across the rooftops of Paris. A pursuit with a fatal end…”
There’s an interactive prologue that’s available through the game’s website right here. This fifteen-minute graphic novel of sorts shares the backstory for the upcoming game. In it you’ll see how Nicolas Legrand caught the Raven just four years ago and why he believes now that he might have caught the wrong guy. The prologue also shares a small bit of info as to how the public views the Raven as a sort of celebrity.
The Raven’s first episode is scheduled to release on July 23rd with the second and third episodes releasing on August 27th and September 24th respectively.
