About This Game



Play the first two and a half chapters from Last Days of Lazarus!

Last Days of Lazarus - Prologue is a narrative driven adventure game, played in first person, where you explore mysterious locations, interact with other characters, find documents to piece together what happened in the story, pick up and use various items to solve light puzzles and progress. The Prologue gives you a chance to explore the apartment where Lazarus grew up and an area in the Kolyma region, next to the cemetery where his mother is buried.

The disturbing story of a broken family

Set in a post-soviet Eastern Europe, Last Days of Lazarus tells the story of a troubled man, long estranged, returning to his childhood home after his mother’s death to spend some time with his sister Lyudmila. But as the country around him seems to fall apart, so does reality itself, with a series of unexplainable events leading him on a quest to find out more about his family’s disturbing past.

The supernatural bleeds into a post-communist nightmare

Last Days of Lazarus is a first-person adventure game with a strong narrative and rich visuals drawing its inspiration from the post soviet era with a Gothic vibe and supernatural elements. As the story unravels, you’ll meet questionable characters whose corrupted version of the truth you’ll need to navigate. With a troubled past yourself, you’ll struggle not only with solving the mysteries laid upon you but also with keeping alive any sliver of hope for salvation.

Real life influences and beliefs

Inspired by our country's history and locations, Last Days of Lazarus tells a story filled with supernatural elements of local belief, laid upon communist and post-communist struggles. In a sick society where everyone cares only about themselves and their survival, can family bonds still be upheld and cherished? And with so much propaganda and superstitions, can level headed thinking still be achieved?
