"(...)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."

“(...) 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.”
