Unable To Continue During Dinner With Abbott

Recommended Posts

I have encountered a bug during the dinner scene with the Abbott. When greeted by the Abbott I chose the cordial response. Then the Abbott said a prayer and the scene shifted to show the food on the table. When asked about what I had done since leaving Tassing I told him that I worked in Poland. The abbott expressed displeasure about protestant uprisings and I talked about a great artist working at the king's court. The abbott said it was no excuse for the violence and I remained silent. At this point I asked the abbott why he really asked me to dinner and this is where the game breaks. Instead of more dialogue, it's just the table with the food, no dialogue bubbles. If I move the thumbstick I can hear footsteps, as if I was back on the Abbott's House screen. Pushing face buttons does nothing.

I exited out to main menu and reloaded the last save and tried again with the same dialogue choices. Same problem. I then reloaded again and was able to get past the bug by chosing different dialogue options.

This is on Xbox Series X.

I've just encountered the same issue, this is on the PC with Game Pass.  I stayed silent as well regarding Poland.  Oh well, guess I'll tell the Abbot what I really think.

Huh, I think I just bugged the CAPTCHA as well, I had to refresh to check the box. 

Edit: Oh, never mind it just wanted me to login to post.

I'm sorry to hear that you've both run into this issue while playing Pentiment. Can you please post your save file and player logs for investigation?

I am experiencing the exact same problem with the same response chain of saying I was in Poland, talking about the artists there, and then remaining quiet.

I thought I missed a prompt for eating food, so i used the mouse to click and I had the arrow and when I proceeded to click on the screen, it sounded like I was walking.

Choosing the option for nobles causing more problems due to sacrilege continued the conversation fine.
