November 30th, 2021 - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

It's IMGN.PRO team, we would like to share with you a brand new gameplay trailer for Black Cube Games upcoming production. Inspired by Persian culture, story-driven action-adventure game - The Tale of Bistun - in which we take control of the mysterious stone carver, with no memory of who he is, and help him traverse blighted lands to discover his identity and the source of a pleading, strangely familiar whisper.

In the action-packed trailer, you can see some of the amazing, magical locations we'll be visiting in the game. Besides the passages hidden on the mountain slope, or temple ruins full of dangerous creatures, the developers showed us truly cosmic Revelations Realm. A mystical place that allows us to discover, piece by piece, the story of our hero, and at the same time be a part of epic events in which light will face the darkness.

In the trailer, we can also hear a fragment of the narration performed by the popular voice actor Marc Thompson, known from cartoons such as Pokemons, Yu-Gi-Oh, or audiobooks from the Star Wars series. His voice will accompany our hero throughout the entire journey, allowing us to delve into the amazing story presented in the game.

The game plot is based on one of the most popular Persian poems, a tragic love story between Sasanian king Khosrow II and the Armenian princess Shirin. In a simplified way, in some aspects, it could be compared to Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.

The Tale of Bistun has already been presented at such gaming events as Games Com, Dreamhack, Pixel Heaven, or recently The MIX, and soon, you will be able to check the game at Indiefest and Taipei Game Show.

PC version of the game will be published by us - IMGN.PRO - with release date and other platforms yet to be announced.

Xbox version will be available through [email protected], thanks to awesome people from Microsoft!

Stay tuned for more info about The Tale of Bistun coming soon!
