Existentialism and Uncertainty Await in First Trailer for The Franz Kafka Videogame

on December 4, 2013 7:32 AM

While The Metamorphosis tells the story of a man that slowly transforms into a cockroach and explores the meaning (or meaninglessness) of life, who know that it would eventually provide the basis of a video game?

Coming from developer Denis “mif2000” Galanin, previously of Hamlet or the Last Game without MMORPG Features, Shaders, and Product Placement, the debut trailer for his upcoming interactive point-and-click adventure based on the works of Franz Kafka has arrived, showing the game’s unique art style and focus on puzzles.

While the game is stunningly beautiful, The Franz Kafka Videogame will also explore many of the themes that permeated through Kafka’s works (like The Metamorphosis or The Castle), such as existentialism and the absurdities of life, surrealism, and deciphering the meaning of our existence.

The Franz Kafka Videogame will release for Android, iOS, Linux, Mac, and PC in 2014, with a currently unknown release date. In the meantime, you can check out the first trailer for the game below:
