KURSK announced and open for Pre-orders

With games coming a long way from players just turning knobs on the Colour TV Game 6 by Nintendo, to experiencing games like Skyrim on VR, Jujubee has announced the first ever documentary-adventure game called Kursk. The reveal trailer can be seen below

Being teased initially by Jujubee in 2015, the game was sort of abandoned in the media, in the sense that even the publisher got quiet on the topic. One might even think that this project was just a hoax back then but it really wasn’t, with the company even going as far as to release the gameplay which can be seen below

The game will focus on the tragedy of the Russian atomic submarine K-141 Kursk, which sank in the Barents Sea in August 2000. The game’s plot will be largely based on facts, making the player a witness to dramatic events that shook the world at the time. The official features of the game include

LIVE THE HISTORY
Experience the history of the fateful voyage of K-141 KURSK that ended at the bottom of Barents Sea.

THE WORLD OF 2000
See through the first person perspective the fascinating world of 2000’s Moscow, Vidyayevo and the extremely detailed Oscar II-class submarine.

INTELLIGENCE OPERATIVE
Walk the fine line between gathering secret information, getting to know important people and getting caught spying.

DECISIONS
Get to know the crew of Kursk submarine, maintain important relationships and make decisions that have a long-lasting impact.

GAMES BEYOND™
New sub-category for Jujubee’s products characterized by a greater emphasis on the story being told, original gameplay, and mature subject matter.

We believe the time has come to tell real stories. In an age in which we compete for the free time of consumers against the entire entertainment industry, including movies and TV series, and when people are less likely to read non-fiction, game producers have an additional obligation. It’s true that games are becoming more complex, offering an incredible audio-visual experience, and allowing us to lose ourselves in a virtual world, but they rarely help us grow. That is why we want to step outside the self-contained world of video game subject matter and invite players to broaden their knowledge about history or the actual world. We’re convinced that KURSK will be a very attractive title to anyone looking for an ambitious and mature game” – said Michal Stępien, CEO of Jujubee.

The game is available for pre-order, via the Jujubee’s official site, as of now. It comes two editions, as part of the bundles
