inXile Secures 'The Bard's Tale' Product Name

by Rainier on June 14, 2004 @ 10:08 a.m. PDT

The Bard's Tale combines the development team's collective knowledge of compelling RPG gameplay with brilliant graphics and major motion picture quality story and dialogue. The Bard's Tale eschews genre cliches in favor of intelligent humor for an original and truly entertaining experience.

"The Bard's Tale" is an action-RPG where the player takes on the role of the Bard -- a sardonic and opportunistic musician and adventurer, driven by carnal rather than noble pursuits. The Bard, voiced by actor Cary Elwes of "The Princess Bride" and "Robin Hood: Men in Tights" fame, is not interested in saving the world, his humble motivations are strictly "coin and cleavage." A truly non-linear game, the player chooses the Bard's responses towards other characters he encounters with either 'snarky' or 'nice' dialogue. Each choice changes the course of events in the game. The action takes place in medieval times in a land based on the Orkney Islands off the coast of Scotland -- the inspiration for many of the classic fantasy stories. Details and images of the game are available for viewing at inXile's website, www.thebardstale.com.

"The Bard's Tale" is being published by inXile entertainment and distributed by Vivendi Universal Games in North America and being published by Acclaim in Europe for a global release in the fourth quarter of 2004.
