Artifex Mundi, The purveyors of fantasy point and click games such as the Eventide and Enigmatis series among many others, are working on Irony Curtain. Promising to be an hilarious and satirical adventure in a fictional communist country known as Matryoshka.
Tour the delightful country of Matryoshka and take in the benefits of living under communist rule of The Leader. Solve puzzles and mini games to better understand the ins and outs of Matryoshka’s wonderful government that everyone loves. No one hates them
Below is a direct quote from their very own Department of Communication as they look to extend an offer you possibly couldn’t refuse.
“Our glorious country of Matryoshka wishes to extend an invitation to the West, and allow them to witness the glory of communism first-hand. Visitors shall be the first outsiders to bask in the light of The Leader, who is the embodiment of all that is good and not the “demon, blood-drunk butcher, or godless dictator” non-believers would have you fear.
We welcome them to explore our beautiful country and political realm by solving puzzles and minigames to understand the depth of corruption surrounding the magnanimity of our fearless leader. This sponsored visit includes a meeting with our Minister of Propaganda Communication, Vlad. The Minister’s job is completely unnecessary, but our country has zero tolerance for unemployment because it shows the West that we are stronger than them.
While our guests aren’t busy submitting themselves to unnecessary strip-searches, they will try to finagle their way through tricky scenarios using creative combinations of items. Our gorgeous, colorful hand-drawn country ensures that foreign eyes will always bask in the glory of our people and natural splendor. It is our hope that these beautiful images draw their eyes away from our impoverished wealthy citizens so they do not try to steal our secrets.”
