Pentiment Update 1.1 Adds New Minigame

Update 1.1 adds a new minigame to Act 1.


Obsidian Entertainment has announced that update 1.1 for Pentiment is now live, which includes a brand-new minigame, a collection of quality of life improvements, and more.

As the latest Obsidian forum post details, the narrative adventure murder mystery game now includes an Endris minigame featured at the beginning of Act 1 for players to interact with. Additionally, there's an added instant dialogue display option for characters which was an update the director Josh Sawyer promised would be arriving later on after the launch of the game.

Now Playing: Pentiment Review

Quite a few bugs have been fixed too, one addressing the input mapper and another common issue where players would be unable to prevent talking to Father Gernot after giving him their evidence in Act 2. There's also a Persuade check-in place that allows the conversation to continue here. The full patch notes can be read below.

In Pentiment, players take the role of Andreas Maler, a master artist who finds himself in the middle of a murder mystery in the Bavarian Alps over the course of 25 years. Set during the 16th century, the game features choice-driven mechanics, a 2D art style with an illustrated world inspired by illuminated manuscripts and printed woodcuts.
