New trailer and screenshots available for stunning ‘whodunnit’ point and click adventure

Vienna, AUSTRIA (July 5th 2013) – Nordic Games today revealed the first in-game trailer with audio commentary by KING Art for The Eye Of The Sphinx, the first chapter of The Raven – Legacy of A Master Thief, available to download for PC, MAC, and Linux on July 23rd.

The trailer, narrated by Marco Rosenberg, Executive Producer at King Art, gives an insight into the adventures that can be experienced during the first chapter The Eye Of The Sphinx. Rosenberg explains that the game pays tribute to the classic Agatha Christie crime stories combined with the gangster movies from the 60s and 70s. Split into three chapters, the game offers the unique opportunity to experience the story from two different sides as they get to play the part of both the investigator and the thief.

The daring hunt across Europe is a beautifully animated tale that features more camera shots and character animation than all of King Art’s previous point and click adventures put together. Journeying through thrilling and dense atmospheres with the aim of catching the art burglar -The Raven, players will follow his trademark black feather clues to capture the thief and to protect a legendary sapphire, the "Eye of the Sphinx". The game is full of twists and turns that will have players on the edge of their seats.

For those who just cannot wait for the game’s release, there is currently available a free to play game that describes the back story of the bitter rivalry between The Raven and his pursuer detective Legrand. The Raven – Interactive Graphic Novel, the prequel to The Legacy of a Master Thief, is a unique teaser which is available now as a browser based game, on Google Play and for iOS devices for free.
