London, 1964. An ancient ruby is stolen from the British Museum. At the crime scene: a raven feather. Is somebody trying to follow in the footsteps of The Raven, the legendary master thief who disappeared years before? Constable Anton Jakob Zellner finds himself in the middle of the kind of murder mystery he so far only knew from reading his favourite crime novels. Nothing is what it seems. Everyone has something to hide. And the Raven is always one step ahead... KEY FEATURES - A classic whodunit adventure from KING Art, the creators of the Book of Unwritten Tales-series - Experience a thrilling crime story through the eyes of multiple characters - Classic murder mystery locations, from a train in the Swiss alps, to a majestic cruise ship and the Cairo Museum - High quality voice acting from a compelling cast of quirky characters - Fully remastered animations, lighting and hair in full HD resolution
The Raven remastered is a classic adventure game like Sam & Max or Monkey Island. Despite 3d graphics, the core has remained the same. The story is exciting and atmospheric from the beginning to the end and motivates to play through the game quickly....
If it weren't for the core problem of old adventure games: I sometimes have to combine hair-raising chains of items to get ahead. The time and the story remain during that time (as unfortunately also the tension). The train races through the tunnel without a driver while I comfortably run 10 times back and forth until all parts for my torch have been found. Or I should steal a diamond: but first I have to run up and down, patch cables and light bulb because the light in the cellar is defective.
Modern story telling is different. Moreover, running and they constantly loading screens pass a very very long time. The animations of the actions are well meant with time but it gets boring and frustrating.
The Raven Remastered is for people who have enjoyed such games before: it's a relic from the past, so to speak. So, I advise everyone else who has never played a classic adventure game to stay away from it, despite the good story.
