Set in medieval times, the player takes on the role of the Bard, a sarcastic, self-centred musician whose adventures are motivated strictly by "coin and cleavage" and who has absolutely no intention of following noble pursuits if at all possible. As he interacts with the other characters throughout the game, the player can choose whether the Bard uses 'snarky' or 'nice' dialogue, with direct consequences on the events to follow. Renowned film and television actor Cary Elwes (The Princess Bride, Robin Hood: Men in Tights) provides the perfect British voice for the English version.
Although humour is clearly the defining feature of The Bard's Tale, a great deal of attention has also been given to the plot and game rendering. Built on the superb engine from Snowblind studios used for Champions of Norrath and Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance, the game uses the popular top-down view method of gameplay, and benefits from excellent graphics and sound. Players can not only resort to traditional magical and non-magical weapons to get themselves out of tight spots but can also summon a variety of creatures using music.
