Being a term used to describe surreal and otherwise absurd, Kefkaesque can be used here to describe how one might feel after learning the late Franz Kafka is getting his own video game early next month.
Published by Daedelix Entertainment - and certainly not Bohemia Interactive - The Franz Kafka Videogame incorporates the simplistic, bizarre nature of the late novelist's writing into a picturebook-style puzzle adventure.
And that's all there is to it. Take things over to Steam and you'll notice a similarly vague product description simply stating that The Franz Kafka Videogame is nothing more than "An original puzzle/adventure game inspired by the writings of Franz Kafka."
Scroll down, however, and you'll learn that you'll be taking control of a protagonist simply initialed 'K.' Giving a new job opportunity, he makes a journey that's more surreal than dangerous as the game makes special note of having no inventory, boss battles or RPG feature. It's all "Absurdity and Surrealism" coated in a soft piano soundtrack fitting of the assumed early 1900s.
Needing nothing by 512mb of system memory, a copy of Windows 7 (or higher) and a processor found in a sub-£100 7inch tablet, there's little stopping you from playing The Franz Kafka Videogame when it released April 6.
