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 Machinarium, Shadow 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.
