This is quite a surprise, KING Art have revamped their 'whodunit' adventure game The Raven – Legacy of a Master Thief and it's now available.

Going by the aptly named The Raven Remastered, it's actually free for everyone who owned the original! I love it when developers do this, it's not like they have to, but it's still great. Here's the trailer:

Features:

  • A classic whodunit adventure from KING Art, the creators of the Book of Unwritten Tales-series
  • Experience a thrilling crime story through the eyes of multiple characters
  • Classic murder mystery locations, from a train in the Swiss alps, to a majestic cruise ship and the Cairo Museum
  • High quality voice acting from a compelling cast of quirky characters
  • Fully remastered animations, lighting and hair in full HD resolution

You can find it on GOG and Steam, although the Linux build on GOG is not yet up it is coming soon. They state it directly on the GOG page and I've also been informed directly it is coming, it just needs a little extra testing by GOG. Update: The GOG build is now up!

I don't think I'll be replaying this one (it's looong) but it's nice they didn't release it as a separate product as some publishers tend to do.

This was one of my recent fav graphic adventures, glad to see a little revamp. Once they put it on GOG I will give it a replay I reckon.

Nice! I think this game was pretty good as far as I remember. Not a favorite adv-title by any means but still well worth playing. However, as I recall, the game was fairly good/modern-looking to start with, so I'm not sure if there really was any need for further enhancements.

Quite enjoyed this game. Wonder if the remaster is just an asset update, or if there are engine updates included. I had problems playing it originally (drivers), but that's all hopefully fixed by now.

-- 3 hangs at the start (as in had to manually stop the process) before it loaded to the main menu. Not a good first impression of the remaster, but afterwards it appears to work ok.

This is good news, because the original game was excellent but had a number of graphical quirks. I might replay it if I have the time, I remember enjoying it a lot.

They have also added the Italian translation, which was not present in the original release, it's time to finally play this game!

On my first start the game seemed stuck, but doing an ALT-TAB solved the problem.

I had the original but I could not get it to run on Linux for the life of me.
Hope this runs better.
