Nein, you can't have a beard without a stache unless you're amish. Just not a good look.

Pentiment is Obsidian’s best game, and it’s barely a game.

I liked it, though

edit: I take that back, alpha brotocol is clearly their best

Some people make fun of this game's name.

ireallyreallyhatesafemode asked:
Would a spiritual sequel to Pentiment be called Palimpsest? Are there any plans or ideas for one?

The original non-working title of Pentiment actually was Palimpsest! Microsoft legal sensed potential difficulty with securing that name so I renamed it to Pentiment.
And no, I have no plans to make any sort of sequel, spiritual or otherwise, for Pentiment. I always intended it as a stand alone story. It may inspire ideas (hopefully not just for me!) in the future, but I'm happy with where we've left it.

If nothing else I can give Josh a thumbs up for making a one-and-done game. That's increasily rare even amongst indies nowadays.
