Daedalic Picks up Eccentric Puzzler The Franz Kafka Videogame

Prepare for absurdity.

In development for several years now, surrealist adventure The Franz Kafka Videogame is a sensationally weird video game based on the literary works of Franz Kafka. Creator Denis Galanin, who also goes by mif2000 online, has constructed a bizarre world tethered together by original logic puzzles, HD graphics, and straight up absurdity.

The story revolves around protagonist K., who upon receiving a sudden offer of employment, is forced to set out on a distant voyage. However, much to his surprise, the world beyond the familiar landscapes of his homeland is not quite what he expected. The Steam page lists the following game features:

  • From the Creator of an Award-Winning Hamlet
  • Original Logic Puzzles
  • High-Definition Graphics
  • No inventory. No Boss battles. No RPG features
  • Only Absurdity and Surrealism

Daedalic Entertainment, known for titles such as MachinariumShadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun and Silence, has taken the game under its wing and become publisher. The Franz Kafka Videogame will launch on April 6 for PC.
