Pentiment Review - Layers Of History | Gamespot

Pentiment too often limits its most enjoyable pieces to reach an ending that makes sense but is still unfulfilling.

So… is this game good or not?

BrainSyphoned577d ago

The main negative i've read is the ending damages the good that came before it. The type of game you would want to play many times to see everything but the ending might make you not care anymore. Still going to give it a spin and hope for the best.

Its reported to take about 18'ish hrs to get through it so if you love to read then a digital book that'll take you 18'ish hrs to read through then this book might be for you!

Josh Sawyer Reflects on Design Evolution: From Icewind Dale to Pentiment

Josh Sawyer is a name that has been familiar to RPG fans for decades. He's worked on Icewind Dale, Neverwinter Nights 2, Alpha Protocol, Fallout: New Vegas, Pillars of Eternity, and most recently Pentiment. How did he get into game development, how has his design philosophy changed over the years, and why did he decide to do Pentiment a little differently?

Those are some great games. Icewind Dale I & II are underrated.

If Larian made Icewind Dale III, I'd lose my mind.

What a fantastic, thorough interview.

Pentiment (PS5) Review | VGChartz

VGChartz's Lee Mehr: "When it’s all said and done, Pentiment is one of the most impressive narrative adventures in recent years. From the words scrawled across the page to impressive background details, there's a distinct appreciation for history coming out of every pore; moreover, it doesn't merely succeed at doing its homework, but also in fashioning unique visual storytelling that harmonizes with its rich narrative & themes. There are some specific design and narrative critiques, but none of them outright smother the abundant successes. For a title so reverent of history, it feels like divine justice that Obsidian's special adventure earns such a high spot in the annals of its own."

I'm not surprised to know a scholar would enjoy it. ;)

I enjoyed this game. Found it rather relaxing. I hope PS fans find it enjoyable too.

I get that vibe too. It's funny how it lulls you into that kind of mood until you see someone get angry and hear the harsh quill scratches in someone's speech bubble.
