The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav might just be the prettiest adventure game this year

While Dungeons & Dragons might be the preeminent name in pen-and-paper role-playing in North America, it’s not quite the same everywhere in the world. In Germany, The Dark Eye rivals D&D in popularity – even outselling the popular genre progenitor (or so claims Wikipedia). Now the series is making a jump into the world of point-and-click adventures, and judging by the screenshots already released, it might just be one of the prettiest adventure games to hit PC’s this year.

 

 

 

The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav will tell the tale of a young trapper who gets caught up in a conspiracy that starts with a mysterious plague of crows, and a summons from the king to use his burgeoning trapping skills to put an end to the aggressive winged beasts.

 

The developers are promising “challenging puzzles, an engaging storyline and lovingly animated characters,” and as you can see from the screens below, the hand-drawn environments look absolutely marvelous.
