Beautifully animated, this adventure is a daring hunt across 1960s Europe where players journey through thrilling atmospheres and stunning environments with the aim of catching the infamous art burglar -The Raven. Players will need to follow the notorious thief’s trademark black feathers in the quest to capture him and finally put his crime spree to an end. The version on Xbox Live for Xbox 360 will leave 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 Raven combines the thrill of the chase ‘whodunit’ with the risk and reward of a heist story where players get to experience both sides of the story as the investigator and the thief. Paying tribute to Agatha Christie’s crime stories and gangster movies from the 60s and 70s, The Raven is set to be a thrilling episodic journey.

All three episodes for The Raven – Legacy of a Master Thief are out today on Xbox Live for Xbox 360 and are also available for PC (Windows/MAC/Linux).
