London, 1964. An ancient ruby is stolen from the British Museum. At the crime scene: a raven feather. Is somebody trying to follow in the footsteps of The Raven, the legendary master thief who disappeared years before?

Constable Anton Jakob Zellner finds himself in the middle of the kind of murder mystery he so far only knew from reading his favourite crime novels. Nothing is what it seems. Everyone has something to hide. And the Raven is always one step ahead...
• 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




Happy Gaming!

Winfrey, do you have a GOG copy? If so, it's listed beside the original as a separate game. Not sure if it's the same for Steam, but I assume so. If you don't have a copy at all, then never mind, just ignore me. lol

Thanks for that news, BrownEyedTigre smile

I can't remember where I purchased the game - but it wasn't from GOG.
Maybe it was from Humble Bundle think

EDIT :

Nope !! Checked my games at Humble Bundle and it doesn't show there woozy

Does anyone know where the game was released from originally ?? Because I bought it as soon as it was released ....
[Just in case I can somehow get the re-mastered version for free laugh ]

Maybe this will help, Mad - here is the thread from when the game was released, which includes your posts as well. wave

I bought the disc when it first came out which is what I played. It requires Steam.

Marian, this was one story I actually understood and I really liked it. You should play!

Thank you so much for pointing this out, Ana. I DO have the STEAM original version in my Games library, but now added is the Remastered version, which I am installing right now as I type this. YAY!

I just saw it in my GOG account too and downloaded it. I am at that miserable wire in the lock part and I was so hoping that they would have a "give up" button or something. I am wondering if the saved game that I got before for the original Raven would work to get me past this part.

Oh I remember that part, took me forever!! good luck

Thanks, Marian smile

That must be where I purchased the game - Nordic - but I don't think they are offering a free upgrade to the re-mastered version.

[I bought a "DRM Free" version as soon as it was released but it wasn't from GOG and it definitely wasn't from Steam.]
Posted by: Marian

Re: The Raven Remastered Released Today - 03/15/18 03:59 PM

I would ask Nordic about this, because they seem to be offering virtually everyone a free upgrade who has the original.

Re: The Raven Remastered Released Today - 03/15/18 04:05 PM

I asked the question by messaging "The Community" (using a form on the website) Marian, about half an hour ago.
So I'll see if I get a reply yes

I hope you get a reply, Mad. smile

Thank you. I hope so too. And a favourable one !! lol

I'll let you know yes

Not lookin' good frown

Apart from my message being acknowledged (on site) the day I sent it, I've heard nothing.

I still have the original version, though, which I can always play again - so it could be worse wink

Re: The Raven Remastered Released Today - 03/22/18 02:53 PM

Sorry to hear that, Mad. I remember something similar happened to me when I got the JPEG image instead of the game a few years ago, and I ended up just having to return the "game." I was hoping you would have better luck. sad

Maybe you could get the GOG version if it goes on sale at some point. If not, as you said, you will always have the original. smile

Re: The Raven Remastered Released Today - 03/24/18 02:33 PM

I might consider getting the GOG version - in a sale - but there's nothing actually wrong with the originl that would stop me from re-playing it yes

I recently purchased the original from steam, and the remastered version is showing as a separate game now. A very pleasant surprise!

Re: The Raven Remastered Released Today - 03/31/18 01:18 AM

I too, was surprised to see the new version on my Steam Library list. Playing it now.

Really enjoyed playing this game. Starts off a little slow with a lot of dialogue but gets better quickly.
