Attention all of our beloved citizens. There’s a brand new Irony Curtain gameplay trailer, the first of its kind, emerging from Matryoshka for your viewing pleasure alongside news surrounding the game’s soundtrack.
Following the recent propaganda video, the inaugural gameplay trailer has arrived for the upcoming satirical, point-and-click adventure game, Irony Curtain: From Matryoshka with Love, providing us with a glimpse of the world that Evan – the bumbling journalist and accidental spy – becomes embroiled in. The locations featured include a dangerous looking construction yard and a hotel lobby with more restrictions and rules than a CIA compound; it’s clear this communist land isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. What’s really good to see though are a handful of the interesting characters you’ll meet, a humorous example of inventory usage – it’s electrifying – and a mini-game involving a catapult.
Artifex Mundi have also revealed that renowned games composer Peter McConnell has been a part of the team and actually composed the main theme of Irony Curtain. He’s best known for contributing to a ton of LucasArts classics like Monkey Island, Grim Fandango, as well as the more modern offerings of Hearthstone, Valiant Hearts, and Broken Age. That should tell you how much of a big deal it is to have him working on the soundtrack along with another great composer in Arkadiusz Reikowski (Layers of Fear, My Brother Rabbit etc.). And if you want to have a listen right now then the full soundtrack for Irony Curtain can be found on Bandcamp here.
Be sure to check out the Irony Curtain gameplay trailer below and remember, it’s expected to arrive on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC in Q2 2019. Are you looking forward to pulling back the proverbial curtain on the nation of Matryoshka?
