Pretty good video. I particularly enjoyed the part where they go over the animation and artstyle, it shine light upon some things that I noticed before and didn't think about at the time (like why art from that time looks the way it does) and the way they went over animating this selling the look. It's funny that they also mentioned that other game animated on a similar style that was posted pages ago in this very same thread.
Kinda want to go back and play the game again now, I still don't think it's for me but I might enjoy it more now that I have a better idea of what's happening and can take it a bit slower.

Instead of playing Pentiment, you should just read Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco. The book is clearly biggest source of inspiration for the game. Both products are made by autistic person, but Name of the Rose is clearly better. Pentiment was worth of what I paid which was basically nothing, it's just alright.

Re-reading Name of the Rose while playing Pentiment. Having fun with both.
Book is excellent, game is good if you like narrative choose-dialogue option games. The setting and story are its strong points, gameplay is just the dialogue.
Can recommend still.
