Not having blacks and troons in your game should be the norm, not a special feature to be celebrated.
Yes, but also I wouldn't have any issue with " straigh up n-words" and "striaight up tr*annies" if they'd place them accordingly. Like, if the tranny in Cyberpunk wasn't that bartender, but instead one of the dolls from Clouds, I wouldn't even have batted an eye.
The entire point is not having them where they might realistically belong though.

Sure seems like Obsidian has been mining poor indie Kickstarters for ideas again and using their Microsoft money to get it to market faster (and probably shittier).

I remembered Inkulinati because of the unique medieval art style... and it actually has some combat.

that art actually looks 10x better

There are other games using historical artstyles too, and they all look better than this thing.

Shigatari uses traditional Japanese art for its graphics:

ss_474b39dcadf90e4e37c9d6bbbd9621cacfb988f9.1920x1080.jpg

The Procession to Calvary uses renaissance artworks:

ss_b39b113f9dc978ea4b547fe700f9f2b1888d2238.1920x1080.jpg


Pentiment looks more like "We kinda wanna do medieval manuscript style art but our artists aren't good enough to pull it off."

There are people on deviantart who do a MUCH better job of it:

Winston E Black (The Gatto Chair of Christian Studies at St Francis Xavier University) was hired to consult for Pentiment's proobabily regard to the medical aspects of the game.

link to CV: https://stfx.academia.edu/WinstonBlack/CurriculumVitae

Josh also mentioned that a classicist consultant was hired to proofread the manuscripts, might be a different consultant.

Surprised people are outraged about MUH DARKIES in 16th century Europe. Its the Ethiopian king (or emissaries) looking for allies against the sultanate of Adal and Mamelukes.
Haven't ya'll niggas played Europa Universalis? Or Civilization?

Nigger, it's about rewriting history and synchronising it with present. Streets of 16th century Paris or London DID FUCKING NOT look like today. Whenever you see niggers in medieval setting that's flex. Let's stop self-gaslighting. They are flexing over us. Openly. Smiling while pulling out dagger with which they wish to kill Our future that would be born from our glorius past

Pentiment looks perfectly fine, so far. In every way. Anyone who expected anything more then cutsy artistic historical Disco Elysium, is naturally disappointed. My expectations are matched

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prester_John#Ethiopia
"By the time Emperor Lebna Dengel and the Portuguese had established diplomatic contact with each other in 1520, Prester John was the name by which Europeans knew the Emperor of Ethiopia."
The screenshot says Prester John. Prester John was the name Europeans called the Ethiopian king at the time, after a mythical Christian king fighting Islam from the south. This is history. Ethiopia sent envoys and pilgrims, they met the pope, Portugal sent soldiers to help Ethiopia beat the Adal sultanate in modern Somalia. Read a bit of history, then re-read your post, and realize what an autistic picture you make.

Niggers were as exotic as aliens from Alpha Centauri in Europe until 50 years ago. In my country still pretty much are rarity

Occasional diplomat, or King on a visit, merchants, mercenary band, scholar etc from far away land? Sure. Having 50% of peasants in Medieval England be black? Fuck You and Your Agenda

Has to do with cultural trend pushed by Left

You said that niggers were commonplace in Medieval Europe

It would be easier to sympathize with you people if you didn't display such lunatic behaviors.

The screenshot has a single slightly dark legendary figure (in what's probably a dream) and you're already sperging about leftist agenda and medieval Europe not being full of niggers.

You are suprised about something that's RARE
I am surprised by retards being outraged about the well documented visit of Ethiopian emissaries in Europe during the 16th century.
It says Prester John as the name of the black guy in the promo screenshot for the game:

This too, all 3 characters in the image are mythical. You have Saint Grobia, patron of fools and vulgars, as the guy saying LIE!. You have Socrates, patron of reason, as the guy saying TRUTH! And you have the Ethiopian king Prester John as the wise king/judge. The player probably needs to make some call between these guys, maybe a question that the lady is asking from the balcony.

Maybe. I think the game is supposed to be loosely historical though. Prester John is mythical to us, but in the 16th century, people thought he was real. Marco Polo and other contemporary writers who are mostly reliable wrote about him as if he was a real ruler. There was a lot of speculation as to where his kingdom might have been located. There were even some Spanish maps drawn up.

Later: Of course Infinitron deleted his post so now this post doesn't make any sense.

I can see already how historically "accurate" those "references to sexual assault" will be, cannot wait.
It will be about Kristoff Avelogna brutally raping 37 different women and still being far more respected than the protagonist.
