Gaming Staff • April 17, 2024

Indie Game Pc Games Early Access Free To Play

"Playing Kafka" is an upcoming narrative adventure game that will be released on May 21st for PC, iOS, and Android. The game is free to play and does not include any premium purchases or paywalled content.

In "Playing Kafka," you find yourself in a confusing and alienating situation, despite having done nothing wrong. The game is inspired by Franz Kafka's works, including "The Trial," "The Castle," and "Letter To His Father," and features a fully voiced branching story that explores modern society's alienation and unresolved family issues.

The game includes atmospheric puzzles, fateful decisions, and a drag and drop gameplay that brings characters and environments to life. "Playing Kafka" was developed by Charles Games, an award-winning indie studio, in collaboration with Goethe-Institut, Prague and Kafka experts.

The developers aimed to create a game that reimagines Kafka's works and themes for the 21st century, rather than simply illustrating them. The game's pensive atmosphere and loneliness are intended to reflect the alienation present in Kafka's texts, while the characters become puppets that emphasize the social, bureaucratic, and other structures that the heroes of Kafka's novels find themselves caught in.

"Playing Kafka" is a game for everyone, regardless of age or gaming experience, and aims to bring Kafka's work and themes closer to a new generation. The game includes approximately 1.5 hours of story in an ever-changing setting, with more detailed information available on the Steam page.
