Pentiment is a historical role-playing game where you explore 16th century Germany world to solve a murder. Play involves exploring the world, talking to people and discovering new ways the narrative evolves. It all takes place on the pages of an old book.

You interact with the world by walking around, talking to people, and making choices about your conversations. This, together with items you find and events you overhear, slowly uncover a murder. You play through limited time each day, as depicted by the large dial that moves you through Matins, Lauds, Prime, Terce and the other canonical hours.

But rather than offering a single plot to uncover, the game focuses on character development and choice-driven storytelling. In fact, you soon discover that you are caught up in a whole series of murders over twenty five years. Only you can solve these crimes, but each decision has lasting consequences and draws you closer to the underlying conspiracy.
