TopWare Interactive’s upcoming title, Raven’s Cry, is a tale of revenge. In the opening cinematic, told through splattered art panels, Raven’s family is murdered by a gang of pirates. Raven, then a young boy, bears witness to their deaths. His mother clutches his fragile frame as she is run through. The boy is spared. However, as a parting gift, the gang of pirates sever one of his hands, giving way to a scallywag protagonist tied to an old zeitgeist. No eye-liner here. Just revenge.
