“(…)Between prohibition, women’s suffrage, the dawn of the automobile, and the rise of jazz, America’s Roaring ’20s were a time of great change. They were also a time of great prejudice. Adventure game Pendula Swing taps into this tumultuous environment and reframes it using fantasy races like goblins, elves, orcs, dwarves, and humans.”

Austin Wood, PC Gamer

“(…) I was immediately impressed by the concept and setting. It is open for exploration of many interesting avenues and narrative forks that can easily influence the players emotionally – which is what games are all about.”

Jónas Antonsson, Raw Fury
