Greedfall takes place in a fantasy edition of the 17th century France. The country has been hit by a terrible plague, evoking demonic beasts. The hero - who may alternatively be a heroine - sets off on a journey to the island of Teer Fradee, to find a cure. There, he soon finds himself caught between the fronts of a relentless war between different factions, each pursuing their own goals and raising the adventure to a level commonly described as epic, including multi-layered relationships and conflicts. Since the first trailer for Greedfall was released about two years ago, the game has since been compared to The Witcher. This is mainly due to the look of the monsters, which are strikingly reminiscent of CD Projekt Red's RPG game. Anyways, publisher Focus Home Interactive has reached a certain level of graphics with its game engine, which does not need to hide behind the big players. The evening sun falls on the colourful autumn leaves with an almost magical shimmer. The playful French architectural style forms a pleasant contrast to the ambiance of comparable fantasy games usually taking place in the monotony of British castles. With its smoking factory chimneys and metal dome decorations, Greedfall is almost reminiscent of a steampunk aesthetic.
