Indie developer Valiant Game Studio has announced that its upcoming adventure game with RPG elements, Pendula Swing, will launch soon on Steam. Introducing a fantasy version of the American Roaring Twenties period, Pendula Swing features goblins, dwarves and orcs in a unique Tolkien meets The Great Gatsby setting. The first episode of Pendula Swing will be offered for free and the second will be priced at $4.99, with a remaining five episodes rolling out over the course of the next year.
“Pendula Swing raises complicated social issues such as prejudice, racism, stereotypes and the disparity between wealth and poverty wrapped in the beautiful art deco style that was popular in the 1920s,” said Anna Jenelius, CEO and Creative Director of Valiant Game Studio. “We feel we are bringing together a number of great features that fantasy and RPG fans will love and look forward to feedback on the first two episodes, which we will incorporate into the subsequent episodes in order to relay the deep narrative in a way that speaks to players.”
