The Flawless: Art's Tale - Press Kit  




Intended for initial release on Windows, Linux, Mac with possible future releases on PS4, PS-Vita, & XBOX One.


The Flawless: Art’s Tale is a thinking man’s side-scrolling RPG adventure, with epic hack 'n' slash battles, an endearing cast of characters, an unforgettable coming of age story, and a surrealist art style created by Bare Knuckle Development.


You play as Art; an 8 year old boy who awakes to find himself alone in the brutal and black-and-white world of cats. Art is catapulted into an extraordinary adventure where he must save his pet cat, and best friend, ‘Mr Dirty Paws’ and bring colour to this surreal world. Along the way he meets numerous characters; some fight alongside him against the plethora of enemies that pollute the land, others would rather see him dead. As he is drawn deeper into this strange and complex world it becomes clear that saving Dirty Paws may involve saving the world but is Art up to the task!
