Players eager to go adventuring in Aventuria once again will get their chance soon enough, as today Daedalic Entertainment unveiled its plans to release Memoria later this year.
In this sequel to the popular fantasy adventure The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav, the young bird catcher Geron makes an agreement with a travelling merchant. In exchange for turning his fairy girlfriend Nuri from a raven back into human form, Geron will solve the five-century-old mystery of Sadja, a princess from the "faraway-land of Fasar, who once ventured into war to fight demons in the Gorian Desert" but failed in her quest and disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Little does Geron know, however, that his new quest will "trigger a chain of events that will soon cast a shadow on his homeland and turn his present into a dark image of its long forgotten past…"
As seen in the game's first screenshots, Memoria will once again lovely hand-drawn artwork to beautifully illustrate the story by Keven Mentz, writer of A New Beginning and co-writer of Deponia and Chains of Satinav.
The return trip to Aventuria isn't on the immediate horizon, but nor is it too far off, as Daedalic is currently aiming for a fully localized international release sometime in the third quarter of 2013.
