The Raven - Legacy of a Master Thief is a thrilling crime adventure in three episodes from the creators of 'The Book of Unwritten Tales'. Full of twists and turns, it immerses you in both sides of the story, combining thrill-of-the-chase whodunit with the risk and reward of a heist story.
Paris, 1960. Europe is in the grip of the gentleman master thief The Raven. His burglaries are spectacular and he always emerges unscathed. Young hotshot investigator Nicolas Legrand stuns the public when he confronts the master thief and fatally wounds him.
London, 1964. An ancient ruby – one of the legendary 'Eyes of the Sphinx' – is stolen from the British Museum. At the crime scene: a raven feather. Is somebody trying to follow in the Raven's footsteps? – Legrand is back on the case. At the same time in Zurich a phone rings. Constable Anton Jakob Zellner looks up from behind a mountain of files. He has no idea what lies hidden in a bank vault, just a few hundred meters away from him. As he reaches for the receiver his life takes a crucial turn…
Surprised I haven't seen more media on this game, certainly sounds and looks great!

Yeah, me too. In fact, all of KING Art Games titles published by Nordic seem to be unavailable DRM-free. Battle Worlds: Kronos will be, and was marked as such from the start of the Kickstarter! This is a very strong indication that Nordic Games (i.e., JoWooD Entertainment) is responsible for this.
Actually, never mind. The two Book of Unwritten Tales games are on GOG, so they probably don't do DRM-free Linux releases for some other reason. We probably need to convince them that it's worth selling through Desura or Humble, or it may not happen.
