Future Game Showcase 2022: Ukrainian games
The Games from Ukraine section is both a heartwarming and heartbreaking oxymoron. The war in Ukraine continues several months after it began, and it has affected countless developers as well. In an attempt to shed some light on the struggles of Ukrainians and developers, Future Game Showcase included a special segment for them. Here’s everything featured in the Games from Ukraine section:
Puzzles for Key (0:49 in the video)
In Puzzles for Keyplayers take control of a rabbit (I’m already sold) named Clef who has received an invitation from his sister to participate in a treasure hunt set in the sky island of his ancestors.
In the game, you’ll explore the island befriending the cute and whimsical inhabitants while solving puzzles to find the grand prize. Look for melodies that Clef can play that will influence the world around him to go even further!
Zero loss (1:44 in the video)
Zero loss is a driving horror game in which you have to drive through a war-torn city. Unlike other war games, Zero Losses focuses on the ugly truth and uncertainty surrounding modern warfare, and the oppressive and dark atmosphere it brings. Marevo Collective’s Vitalii calls this the “inevitable reaction” to events surrounding Ukrainians.
Zero loss should be released in the summer of 2022.
This rain will never end (2:21 in the video)
This rain will never end is a point-and-click noir detective title in which players take control of a cat trying to solve the mystery behind the ex-mayor’s murder while trying to figure out why the downpour is endless.
Unfortunately, the video did not feature a release date for This rain will never end.
Farlanders (2:52 in the video)
Farlanders is a turn-based city-builder in which players will attempt to colonize Mars. Besides building colonies, players will focus on terraforming the earth, learning new technologies, trading with other colonies, and exploring the underground caves of Mars.
Farlanders does not have an official release date at the time of writing.
Through the nightmares (3:29 in the video)
through the nightmares is a unique platforming adventure in which players will take control of the sandman as he journeys through children’s nightmares and overcomes their fears to progress and battle the god of dreams, Morpheus.
Through the nightmares should be out next year!
