Inkle Studios, the developer behind the wonderful 80 Days and Heaven’s Vault, has, after some early teasing back in February, finally unveiled its next project. It’s called Pendragon, and is described as a “strategic narrative” adventure inspired by Arthurian legend.
Pendragon unfolds in the year AD 673, with Camelot on the verge of destruction. The fellowship of the Round Table is in disarray, thanks to Sir Modred’s deceit, and it’s up to you to assemble a ragtag band of knights, heroes, and peasants, traverse the treacherous Britain of the Dark Ages and, hopefully, lend your assistance to King Arthur on the other side.
“Will Sir Lancelot be reunited with Queen Guinevere? Will she spurn him, or embrace him?,” teases Inkle, “Will Sir Kay ever forgive Sir Gawaine for siding with Sir Mordred? Can Morgana le Fay be trusted? Where is Merlyn? Who lies buried in Mordred’s graveyard? Who is the archer in the woods? What has become of Excalibur?”
