The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav looks delicious

7:00 PM on 02.08.2012

I'll be honest, Daedalic Entertainment's upcoming adventure game The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav only caught my eye because of the beautiful handdrawn graphics in the screenshots, and the above teaser video. While the video doesn't actually tell us much in terms of story or gameplay, it does show that it won't just be flat 2D graphics you'll be moving a cursor over. No matter how fancy the HD artwork is in any adventure game, it's always nice if things move around a little to add life to the environment.

Although The Dark Eye (Das Schwarze Auge) is claimed to be Europe's most successful pen & paper role-playing game, I can't say I could recall ever hearing about it. Not playing pen & paper RPGs might have something to do with that. A quick search reminded me of the PC RPG Drakensang, released in 2009 outside of the German-speaking countries, and the upcoming Demonicon -- both of which are set in the same The Dark Eye universe.

Whether or not the story of this The Dark Eye game is as good as the graphics look is something we'll find out closer to the PC game's release on March 23rd, 2012. No word about a prospective The Red Eye: Chains of Sativa spinoff yet.
