Kafka stories to metamorphose into “twisted” new adventure

Shakespeare is probably still rolling in his grave over mif2000's delightfully quirky adaptation of Hamlet, and now the indie developer has set his sights on a new classic author in The Franz Kafka Videogame.

Rather than following any of Kafka's individual storylines, the game will be a "compilation of different ideas" from his collected works.  According to the designer, the "twisted" basic formula for the game will be "The Castle + Amerika + The Metamorphosis + some surreal and absurd ideas."

As the first screenshots of the game indicate, The Franz Kafka Videogame will feature the same distinctive hand-drawn art style as its predecessor, along with a host of original puzzles to solve. 

While no firm timetable has yet been announced, the game is currently in development for PC, Mac, and iOS, and is due for release sometime in 2013.
