First teaser from our Russian themed Platform RPG.
Loresoft is proud to announce Katyusha, a Platform/RPG based in the popular Russian song/character, written by Mikhail Isakovsky and composed by Matvei Blanter in 1938.
A character that has never been seen introduced before in a movie or video game, Katyusha was Russia’s most popular song in World War II as it was encouraging soldiers between battles. In 1941 Germany invades Russia. Katyusha lives near the borders. Her boyfriend advises her to leave and save her life. Katyusha leaves but her feelings won’t let her abandon her boyfriend. She wants to find him. So she decides to leave on the east and join the Russian army. That would be her only hope of finding him back one day.
The game is a fast-paced Platform/RPG which contains lots of emotional moments. Take control of Katyusha as she has to survive in Russia during World War II. The combat system includes melee combos and ranged weapons, among with stealth kills. A levelling system allows you to gain xp, level up and train Katyusha to learn new skills. Katyusha’s skills include healing, movement skills and giving orders to her grey eagle to attack her enemies. Her relationship with the eagle depends on her actions. Many of Katyusha’s skills will be revealed in the future.
Watch our first announcement trailer:
When Katyusha’s comrades are killed they drop letters. Katyusha will also find letters from German soldiers. All those letters are real-life experiences that soldiers wrote in paper and sent to their families during World War II. We also accept letters from any of you kept from your relatives. You send them via email to firstname.lastname@example.org and those will be posted, either with the original poster, or using alternate names. Photo of letters are required to prove the identification.
Stay tuned for more information. Full announcement of Katyusha will be done to the media in the following weeks.
Also find Katyusha’s profile on IndieDB, where you will be able to see exclusive stuff before we officially announce them.
