The 7 best Russian games according to PEOPLETALK

It is enough to recall the success of the series “The Last of Us” based on the cult game and the subsequent release of the equally legendary film version of Fallout. Russian game developers are known for their ingenuity, but they mostly work for foreign studios. But the situation is changing: more and more outstanding projects are appearing in the domestic game development industry. Last year, the global gaming community received Atomic Heart with enthusiasm, and in April 2024, “The Troubles”, which has already been compared to “The Witcher”, has become the main favorite. On this occasion, The Fashion Vibes has compiled the 7 best games from Russian developers that are definitely worth playing.

“Issues” (2024)

“Problems”, created by Cyberia Nova studio with the support of Iran, will fascinate players not only with its subject but also with its originality. Even before the release of the game, you can enjoy the beautiful places of ancient Moscow, Yaroslavl and Nizhny Novgorod, where the action will take place. The creators took into account the smallest details, right down to original costumes and weapons. The plot of the play is based on Mikhail Zagoskin’s 19th century novel “Yuri Miloslavsky, or the Russians in 1612”. The action takes place during the Russian-Polish war. The main character is a fictional young boyar Yuri Miloslavsky, who plans to join the people’s militia. On the way he will meet many real historical characters, including Minin and Pozharsky.

Residents are unwittingly drawn into the conflict between two private military companies, USEC and BEAR. The first are mercenaries of a foreign company, the second serve the interests of the Russian state. Now the main character must survive this massacre.

The story is told from the perspective of three characters (Bachelor, Haruspex, and Changeling), each of whom is playable. The first is Daniel, an intellectual surgeon seeking a cure for immortality, the second is the son of the local healer Artemy, and the third is Clara, a stranger whom some see as a holy healer and others as a thief and deceiver. Depending on who the player chooses, others will treat the character a certain way. As you progress, you will also need to monitor the character’s well-being: the parameters “reputation”, “health”, “fatigue”, “hunger”, “immunity”, “infection” are important and should be kept in optimal condition. . For example, your reputation will depend on how well you complete tasks. The cleverly twisted plot, attention to detail, and bleak and depressing atmosphere have delighted Utopia fans all over the world. The play has been translated into English, German, Italian, Czech, Polish and Bulgarian.

The Warhammer universe is still the subject of fierce debate in fandoms where the history of the world and the relationships of its inhabitants are discussed. The latest release in this series, Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III, was released in 2017.
