Franz Kafka's mind is a ripe setting for a video game, full of anxiety, bureaucracy, daddy issues and a little bit of magic. Indie developer Denis Galanin, known as "mif2000," has transformed The Castle
, The Metamorphosis
and a few other works from Kafka into The Franz Kafka Videogame
, due out for PC, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android in 2014.
Mif2000 was previously responsible for translating William Shakespeare's Hamlet
into a game with a ridiculous name but respectable accolades.
The Franz Kafka Videogame
follows the main character, K, after he gets a new job that requires traveling to a distant land. And then things get weird, just as Kafka intended.
