Pendula Swing is an episodic adventure game with RPG elements, set in a Fantasy version of the American Roaring 1920s.
Season 1’s protagonist is Brialynne, a once famous dwarven hero who is forced to return to a world she no longer recognizes. Strange music, a completely new fashion, fast moving steel horses and now goblins and orcs roaming the streets in broad daylight?! Unlock areas to discover the town of Duberdon, follow your favourite characters and solve your own burning problem.
The once famous dwarven hero, Brialynne Donu Tenúm, is forced to interrupt her indefinite retirement on her idyllic island when she discovers that an important artifact has been stolen.
Brialynne sets foot in Duberdon for the first time in 400 years and is mesmerized by how the world changed. She hopes to find someone who can help recover her axe, which appears to be harder than she had anticipated. And who is that strangely familiar elf…?
A lead brings Brialynne to the Harbor District, where she aims to ask the captain of a ship what she knows about the missing axe. Were the bars in Duberdon always this seedy, though?

“(…)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.”
