On Valentine’s day, Valiant Game Studio AB wishes everyone a wonderful celebration and announces Pendula Swing: The Complete Journey!
Pendula Swing: The Complete Journey is a premium point & click adventure set in a fantasy version of the American Roaring 1920s. Starring Brialynne Donu Tenúm, the greatest and most celebrated dwarven hero of this world, the game features hundreds of unique characters and quests that unfold how the world evolved after the slaying of goblins and orcs went out of fashion.
Pendula Swing: The Complete Journey celebrates diversity by featuring a variety of relationships and characters, including LGBTQ+ and people with disabilities. Together, they weave a vibrant world inspired by the real Roaring 20s, but with the addition of classic fantasy tropes. The goblins are fighting for their right to vote, magic is frowned upon in favor of the newly invented antibiotics, and dwarven ale is prohibited, just to name a few examples.
The protagonist Brialynne starts off as an old, grumpy lady who wishes nothing more but to be left alone in her solitary retirement. She is also this world’s greatest hero – her home is filled with treasure and some people still celebrate her adventures through imposing statues, books and movies. Since she is already rich and famous, it is up to you to define how Brialynne reacts when, after her famous axe is stolen, she’s forced to interact with the world around her again.
Pendula Swing: The Complete Journey spreads across 7 main areas that reflect iconic 1920s locations such as the Speakeasy, the newly invented Cinema, and the Department Store. Featuring an abundance of quests and options that require at least 7 hours of gametime to discover, this story-rich game allows you to solve a great mystery, date numerous interesting characters, talk to and adopt several pets, enjoy funny word puzzles, and much more.

- pick and give flowers to people you like.
- kiss your dates as many times as you want to – your affection will not go unnoticed.
- If you think flowers are passé, you can go for a relaxing fishing session.
- …and if love is something you find tiresome, you can always replace it with pets: in Pendula Swing, you may have as many pets as you wish, as long as they want to follow you.
