About This Game

Developed by Phantomery Interactive, 1953 – KGB Unleashed is a tense and atmospheric First Person Adventure set deep within the bowels of a Soviet bunker during the Cold War. Players must uncover the dark and horrifc secrets buried within, fighting their own paranoia along the way as well as the possibility of all-too-real terrors within the bunker. Are the voices emanating from all around you real, or just an hallucination resulting from your isolation? Will you manage to escape into the warm embrace of daylight, or will you be trapped within the foreboding menace of the bunker?

Only in 1953 – KGB Unleashed can the answers be found!

“1953 – KGB Unleashed” is based on real projects conducted by the Ministry of State Security of the USSR (the former KGB). During that time they pushed the limits of human endurance, testing for the possibility of telepathy, as well as researching the psychological impact of fear on the human brain. The photo-realistic visual style of “1953 – KGB Unleashed” recreates the USSR of the fifties: the underground shelter’s interior is constructed using real Soviet military plans, and the materials found there are based on historically valid documents.

Explore a hidden laboratory where such experiments were conducted in order to learn the truth behind the terrifying events that led to the closure of the project and the liquidation of its staff. An atmosphere of isolation and suspense pervades throughout, bringing you face to face with your own fears, while the voice of invisible “observer” broadcasts over the internal communications system. Is this observer a friend, or an enemy? Your exploration of this perfectly-preserved complex may uncover what these experiments unlocked deep within the human psyche — but will you survive these revelations intact?

A decent, enjoyable point and click with an occasionally good, creepy atmosphere. A couple books worth of mediocre quality text and some difficult puzzles do spoil the experience somewhat.
6/10

I tried this game without knowing much about it but after 2 hours (maybe 3) of playing it I can say that I enjoyed it. Yes the graphics are low (the resolution is... from the past), it loads very slow (no idea why) but the story is decent. Some small exploring, some puzzles and some reading and that's the whole game :P

Try it and see if you like it!

Definitely an interesting game.
The gameplay is as simple as it gets and the story is interesting but did leave me with questions.

There is not much I can say except that this game requires some serious thinking, the puzzles left me confused for a long time until I went back to my documents to re-read everything or until I decided to look around more and see if there was anything I missed. The enviorment is very atomospheric and immersive, it made me feel a bit paranoid and cautious of everything I did.

I recommend this to anyone who enjoys some good old point & click gaming.

After having spent about 2 hours solving nonsensical puzzles and spending most of that time on redoing puzzles even though I had already solved them (the lack of feedback in this game is very frustrating. Secret doors that make no noise? Come on!) I decided to give up. Pixel-hunting and the feeling that the game would have been much more informative in Russian (why do the cut-scenes keep going long after a speech has been played?) made me want to not go through with this otherwise very eerie game that seems to have found itself some great subject matter.

This game isn't worth your money at any rate, wait for it to be bundled if you feel the need to check it out.
