Pendula Swing: The Complete Journey is a complete edition of an adventure game with RPG elements called Pendula Swing. Initially, the production developed by the independent Swedish team Valiant Game Studio was available in seven episodes, which appeared regularly from August 2018 to November 2019.
Pendula Swing: The Complete Journey takes us on a journey to a fantastic world inspired by the United States of the 1920s, inhabited by humans, elves, orcs, dwarves and goblins among others. The main hero of this production is Brialynne Donu Tenúm, a famous dwarf actress who breaks her retirement and comes to the city of Duberdon for the first time in four hundred years to find her stolen axe. The widowed heroine not only has the opportunity to see with her own eyes how the world has changed in her absence (not only has a prohibition been introduced, but you can fall under the wheels of an automobile in the streets), but also to know the new love of her life.
In Pendula Swing: The Complete Journey action is shown in an isometric view. During the game, we travel through seven districts of the city and get to know their residents, as well as perform various tasks. Among the more than 160 missions waiting to be completed, we will find both those that bring Brialynne closer to solving the mystery of stealing her precious artifact, as well as various side quests. During these quests we have to talk to the citizens of Duberdon or even smuggle dwarf alcohol (nobody is forbidding us to check how it tastes). In addition, our heroine can try to find a person who will steal her heart, adopt a pet, go shopping (to modernize her home or get some fashionable clothes) or go to a hairdresser (who will take care of her hair or beard, which is nothing strange among dwarf women).
The graphic design of Pendula Swing: The Complete Journey has been maintained in a bright, expressive style that evokes clear associations with America in the 1920s. The impression of being in the alternative version of the United States from this era is enhanced by the atmospheric soundtrack.
