The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav – Release postponed

For Immediate Release

Hamburg, March 6th 2012. The new adventure „The Dark Eye”: Chains of 

Satinav“ is now expected to be released towards the end of Q2 2012. The 

precise date will be announced shortly. Daedalic Entertainment and Deep 

Silver decided to extend the development of the game in order to further 

optimize the game’s performance.

Daedalic-CEO Carsten Fichtelmann explains: “The very high potential of 

“Chains of Satinav” was confirmed by the very good first reviews we got 

throughout the media. However considering the few points criticized, as 

well as our own quality tests, we recognized that the performance of the 

game still requires some optimizing. Since the quality of the game is 

our highest priority, we decided to extend the development phase of 

“Chains of Satinav”. That way we can provide the best possible gaming 

experience to our players.”

In “The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav”, players can dive into a brand new 

fantasy-adventure. In the role of the young trapper Geron from the 

northern kingdom of Andergast, they get caught up in a sinister 

conspiracy. The people of Andergast, are considered to be notoriously 

superstitious, and have been at odds with their neighbors from the 

kingdom of Nostria for a long time. Now, first steps are taken towards a 

lasting peace. But this peace as well as the festive mood of the royal 

quest is disturbed by a mysterious plague of crows. The birds, behaving 

with unusual aggressiveness, are even attacking humans.

To get rid of this plague, the king seeks a skilled bird catcher - an 

opportunity for young Geron to prove that the reputation for ill luck 

that has followed him since childhood is undeserved. Following an 

audience with the king, the prestigious task is assigned to him. 

However, not only does his chore proves  unexpectedly difficult, but it 

also turns out to be the first step into the greatest adventure of his 

life, which will lead him to the uncharted lands of Aventuria and 

beyond. Adventure-fans await stunning hand-drawn backgrounds, 

elaborately animated characters in HD resolution, tricky riddles and a 

gripping story.

„The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav“ will be released in Q2 2012 

exclusively on PC
