COMING SUMMER 2020

“Inkle is a master of its craft...”

Camelot Has Fallen

AD 673. The jealous Sir Mordred has broken the fellowship of the Round Table with hatred and lies. Now King Arthur faces his final battle. Who will keep the dream of Camelot alive?

Narrative Strategy

Pendragon is an epic written turn-by-turn on the field of battle itself. Every move you make drives the story, and every narrative twist opens up new gameplay opportunities. Will you advance and show your mettle, or cautiously retreat? And when sacrifices are required, who will you put in harm's way?

Heaven’s Vault made Rock Paper Shotgun’s best PC games of 2019 so it’s grand to hear Inkle are jumping off to something new already...”

Guinevere or Lancelot?

Pick a character to lead. Their personality will shape the story: Morgana le Fay is treacherous; Queen Guinevere is haunted by her mistakes; Sir Lancelot is French; Sir Gawaine is usually drunk...

Strategic Gameplay

Pendragon is a character-driven narrative strategy game. Fight turn-based battles with simple yet deeply strategic combat where position is everything, losses are inevitable, and every step counts.

“... A good fit for both the legend of the Round Table and Inkle's particular style of illustrated storytelling.”

Rally the Round Table

Assemble a ragtag band of knights, heroes, and peasants. Reach Arthur before he meets his fate. Some will make it to Camlann. Others will fall. Yet every turn will change history.

An Infinitely Replayable Epic

Journey across Dark Ages Britain to face wild creatures, brutal rogues, and Sir Mordred’s dark knights. A randomized game board ensures every playthrough is new. Unlock heroes on one playthrough to lead in the next.

Adaptive narrative

Pendragon is a story assembled from thousands of pieces. Using the latest version of our ink scripting language, the game remembers and adapts to everything that happens - every move, every choice, every victory and defeat.

Live your Legend

Will Sir Lancelot be reunited with Queen Guinevere? Will she spurn him, or embrace him? Will Sir Kay ever forgive Sir Gawaine for siding with Sir Mordred? Can Morgana le Fay be trusted? Where is Merlyn? What has become of Excalibur? And can Arthur be saved?
