Developer Artflex Mundi describes Irony Curtain as a “love letter to point-and-clicks.”

The location is Matryoshka. The year is 1951. You are Evan, a goofy, low-ranking journalist who is drawn into espionage in a stand-off between two Cold War powers. This particular Cold War, however, takes place in an alternate reality unbound by historical accuracy. Anything can happen.

Irony Curtain takes inspiration from classic adventure games (Lucas Arts, Daedalic) and promises “pure point-and-click fun.” You’ll encounter sleeper spies, stolen secrets, world-domination plots and layers of humor. You’ll witness unpredictable twists and turns

Hey! What’s that alligator doing in the bathroom?

The game features 21 hand-painted locations and “1,951 cleverly sneaked-in easter eggs.” It’s voiced in English, with subtitles in Polish and German.

Irony Curtain: From Matryoshka with Love is set to be released on Windows, Mac and Steam OS + Linux tomorrow, May 16th. It will be available on Steam  and GOG. Planned console versions (PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch) have been pushed back a few weeks to preclude excessive work hours on the part of the development team.

Mr. Supreme Leader, tear down that curtain!

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
