Pendragon review

It's a relief to know that some life-or-death battles where the fate of the nation is in the balance can be attempted a near infinite number of times.

Enough floating about in the clouds, Inkle are ready to get their knees muddy and hands bloody. After wrapping up dreamy translate 'em up Heaven's Vault, the story-driven studio today announced Pendragon - a sprawling strategic narrative adventure about traipsing across Dark Ages Britain to rally the (now table-less) Knights of the Round Table in a quest for vengeance.

Heaven’s Vault developers tease their next game with seven words

Swords, anguish, Britain, unrequited, forests, hope, and revenge are seven words that apparently relate to the next game by Heaven's Vault developers Inkle Studios.
