Flint: Treasure of Oblivion

Publisher Microids and developer Savage Level have announced Flint: Treasure of Oblivion, a new pirate-themed tactical RPG for PC and consoles.

Flint: Treasure of Oblivion is in development for Windows PC (via Steam, GOG, and the Epic Games Store), Xbox Series X|S, and PS5 with a release set for 2024.

“Flint: Treasure of Oblivion is an occasion for us to develop a game in a universe we have always been passionate about,” Savage Level founders Declares Aurélien and Maxime Josse said in a press release. “This game gives us the possibility of informing the general public about what piracy really was, often portrayed in a caricatured and wrong way. Flint: Treasure of Oblivion is the culmination of a rethinking process aimed at advancing the clichés of narration in video games. With this title, we are proposing an original way of telling stories through the medium of comic book and take the opportunity to highlight the Franco-Belgian comics that have been making us dream since our childhood.”

Here’s a rundown on the game, plus its reveal trailer:
