The Green Knight, Medieval Fair and Demo!

Medieval Passion Fair

At the beginning of May (from the 3rd to the 6th), we had the pleasure of meeting some of you at the Medieval Passion Fair — and encountered many future players 😀 A PC at the booth allowed our visitors to test the game live.

We were super happy to see the number of curious people stopping by to ask about the game!

The Green Knight Adventure

We're ready to tell you a little more about another of our adventures, which is inspired by the poem Sir Gawain and the Green Knight by the anonymous poet known as Pearl.


As a reminder: a mysterious man covered in greenery comes to King Arthur's court to challenge one of the Knights of the Round Table to strike him. Normally it's Gawain who rises to the challenge and beheads him. The Green Knight picks up his head and proclaims that whoever accepted the challenge must receive the same blow from him, in a year and a day at the Green Chapel, in Wales.

Following the storyline of the original tale required adaptations to make it interactive and enjoyable to play. The symbols and layers of meaning, typical of tales and texts with a mythical background, have been preserved but also adapted to deepen certain aspects, provide explanations to the player, and achieve better coherence between gameplay actions and narration.


This adventure combines dreamlike sequences with moments of investigation and courtesy, as well as battles with monstrous creatures. And as you can see, it takes place in snowy landscapes...


We also greatly appreciated David Lowery's film The Green Knight with Dev Patel in the role of Gawain.
