In 2009, the bulk of RPG commentary on PC was all Dragon Age this, Dragon Age that. Me, I ended up sinking more time into something rougher, readier, odder, 50% glorious and 50% drudgery. Piranha Byte’s spiritual Gothic sequel Risen was a hell of a place to visit for a time. Here’s my fall and rise and fall again on its peril-packed, amoral island of adventure.
- Day 1: Tourist
- Day 2: Sous-chef
- Day 3: Native
- Day 4: Victim
- Day 5: Slave
- Day 6: Grinderman
In the arms of obsession, and guerrilla bathing.
The pursuit of liberty, the vanquishing of a nemesis.
And in the end…
Which makes me suddenly rather excited for the impending, piratey Risen 2. Must look into what’s going on with that…
