NEWS: Released Today: Doctor Kvorak’s Obliteration Game

A deadly single player puzzle adventure that tells the rather peculiar story of a dastardly deity, a rhyming space hen and a game show that saved the world.

Status: Released
Type: Single-player
Genre: Adventure
Developer: Freekstorm
Publisher: Freekstorm
Release Date: 26 Jul, 2017

The game tells the story of an immortal trickster and his deadly galactic game show. (Think The Running Man meets Portal and you won’t be too far out.) What originally started out in 2010 as Freekstorm’s small indie gaming project turned into a full length PC adventure (10+ hours of gameplay plus map editor) and they are finally launching on Steam today. If you like peculiar stories with a philosophical twist then it might appeal.

Description

You have been selected to appear on the biggest and best show in the galaxy: The Obliteration Game. Controlling three talented contestants, you must pit your wits against Doctor Kvorak himself, an immortal trickster who will challenge you every step of the way. If you win, your success will be celebrated throughout the galaxy. Such skill, such fortune, such heroism! But all is not what it seems, for if you lose then you risk the very annihilation of your world.

Doctor Kvorak’s Obliteration Game is a deadly puzzle adventure for Windows PC, with full VR support (HTC Vive, Oculus Rift/Touch). The game appeals to players of all ages and features a full VR map-editor integrated with Steam Workshop.

History

Freekstorm is a family studio of British indie game developers, based in Cambridgeshire, U.K. and founded by Richard and Lin Bang in 2008.

After successfully creating a short animated film Doctor Kvorak Destroyer of Worlds for an international film festival, they realised that they were rather attached to their dastardly green friend and decided to continue his adventures in the form of a game. They have been working on Doctor Kvorak’s Obliteration Game ever since, along with the help and support of their three talented kids who all play active roles in developing the game. In true indie-style, all aspects of the game are developed by the family in-house, including characters, assets, gameplay and audio.

The Future

The final release of Doctor Kvorak’s Obliteration Game is released today on PC, with full support for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift/Touch. They hope to release the game on other platforms later in the year. Basically if Unity supports the platform, then Doctor Kvorak wants his game on it. He is omnipotent, after all.

My main focus is puzzlers or anything with puzzle elements in it. I also like forward-planning strategy and discovery/adventure. Games that engage your brain without too much urgency. || I’m a rabid Linux user and try to avoid Win-only games but I’ll suffer it if the game is worthwhile. || I don’t go for multiplayer games in general, and you couldn’t make me play FPS if you tied me to a chair and held a blowtorch to my toes. || Steam Profile
