About The Tale of Bistun

About this game

The Tale of Bistun is a story-driven action-adventure game inspired by the 12th Century tragic poem “Khosrow and Shirin.” You play as a stone carver who wakes on Mount Bistun with no memory of anything before that moment. An insidious blight has spread, bringing forth many dangerous foes. You must battle through mythical enemies and travel between the real world and an ethereal place of forgotten memories to discover the secret of your past.

Story

On the craggy slopes of Mount Bistun, a stone carver awakens with no memory of who he is nor how he came to be there. He soon discovers that a blight is squeezing the life out of nature, tainting the local wildlife and turning it hostile. Encouraged by a strange, pleading whisper, the man journeys between the real world and the mysterious place of forgotten memories, known as the Revelations Realm, in search of answers. But a colossal ancient evil is watching, waiting, and is not best pleased that its plans are being disrupted.

Key Features

An ancient Persian myth

The Tale of Bistun is a compelling tale of sacrifice and self-discovery inspired by the 12th Century poem “Khosrow and Shirin.” The story takes place in an exotic world of Persian myth, where magic and divine influences shape all that you encounter.

Explore beautiful but blighted lands

As the stone carver, you must traverse the scenic slopes of Mount Bistun to unravel the mystery of your identity and how you came to be on the mountain. Although beautiful, Mount Bistun has been afflicted by a terrible blight, and dangerous creatures wait for unsuspecting adventurers.

Engrave the past

As you explore the mountain, sculpt statues to remind you of your hazy past. Then, you can return to a hub area to carve out beautiful engravings detailing your past experiences and encounters.

Omniscient narrator

The Tale of Bistun is told through an omniscient narrator, who recounts the stone carver’s steps and details his innermost thoughts.

Fast-paced combat

Engage in fast-paced, tactical melee combat against a variety of wicked foes based on Persian mythology. If you’re in danger of being overwhelmed, unleash a devastating special ability to clear your path.

While I did enjoy the gameplay and story, I do feel it falls a bit flat on its length. Also not having any video/graphics settings for a pc game seems unusual. I do recommend it for people who like games with a story but lean to picking it up during a sale, due to its 2-3hr story.
