Play with absurdity, hopelessness in The Franz Kafka Videogame

Fans of the absurd literary works of novelist Franz Kafka will have a game to call their own next year with the release of The Franz Kafka Videogame, an adventure based on the books The Castle, The Metamorphosis and others.

The Franz Kafka Videogame is the work of Denis "mif2000" Galanin, the developer behind 2012's Shakespeare-inspired point-and-click adventure game, Hamlet or the Last Game without MMORPG Features, Shaders and Product Placement.

In an email, Galanin described his new Kafka-inspired, logic puzzle-filled work: "The hero named K. gets a sudden offer of employment. And this event changes his life, forcing him to make a distant voyage. To his surprise, the world beyond his homeland appears to be not as normal as he would think. Together with the hero you will experience an atmosphere of absurdity, surrealism, and total uncertainty."

The Franz Kafka Videogame is slated for release on Android, iOS, Linux, Mac and Windows PC sometime in 2014. The game's debut trailer is below.
