GOG release: “A Plague Tale: Innocence”

Asobo Studio‘s and Focus Home Interactive‘s medieval adventure game A Plague Tale: Innocence makes its DRM-free debut on GOG.

Historical games have usually been reserved for strategy titles, but A Plague Tale: Innocence is a good example that it can also work in other genres. In 1349 France, young Amicia and her little brother Hugo are doing everything they can to survive the Inquisition and also rats which are mainly associated with the plague.

It’s certainly a bleak and realistic tale that doesn’t shy away from gore and disgusting scenes involving mutilated and diseased corpses and vermin, but this is why it feels so historically accurate. Gameplay-wise, one won’t solve point-and-click puzzles, but tries to hide and evade enemies, even if it involves killing them if it’s necessary. This isn’t an action game, though, and each death has an emotional effect on the siblings. Light and darkness play big roles, too, as rats shy away from light, making it more like a puzzle game of how to get past guards.

A Plague Tale: Innocence was originally released in May 2019, but it’s now DRM-free on GOG with a 50% launch discount that will last until December 3, 2 PM UTC. Buying it before tomorrow, November 27, 2 PM UTC, additionally unlocks the DLC Coat of Arms for free.
