[Update] This story originally said developer Flying Cafe was Russian, when it was in fact Ukranian.
For many years, Eastern Europe’s only real known contribution to gaming was Tetris, but the area’s getting more international attention in recent years through strange and wonderful games like S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and Pathologic.
Which is to say, hey you, watch the first gameplay trailer for Ukranian indie sci-fi adventure game Cradle. At the very least, it certainly is strange.
“The story is built around the relations of the protagonist and a mechanized girl, who by enigmatic circumstances find themselves together in a yurt among the desert Mongolian hills,” developer Flying Cafe for Semianimals explains. “The player is to restore the lost functions of his companion’s mechanical body parts and together reveal the mystery of the neglected entertainment park found not far from the yurt.”
