Irony Curtain reviews digest (SPOILER: they're awesome!)



Comrades!

It’s been over two weeks since Matryoshka has opened the Iron(y) Curtain to the Western World and we’re overwhelmed by all positive feedback we’ve received from you and from the press.

(By the way, if you didn’t leave Irony Curtain steam review yet, now it’s the best time to do it!)

If you hadn’t come across to any of the reviews in the web (which is, in the words of our Matryoshkan Scientists “99,9% impossibru”), here’s a small digest to what was going on since the release:


"Irony Curtain: From Matryoshka with Love is a wonderful point-and-click adventure that simultaneously feels very nostalgic and yet very much a modern evolution of the genre classics that inspired it. (…) the journey is filled with fantastic art, lovable characters, varied gameplay, and loads of fun gags, all wrapped up nicely in a story about being the change you want to see. This game comes highly recommended for those looking to have a good laugh and enjoy a very polished adventure at the same time.”
- Adventure Gamers (4,5/5)

“Irony Curtain is the funniest game of the year. It’s also a great tribute to the PC clickers of old, and a good PnC game in its own right.”
- WellPlayed (8/10)

“It is brilliantly written, carefully designed and put together; and most of all, seriously brilliant satire. GO PLAY THIS GAME”
- Impulse Gamer (5/5)

"To be honest, I didn’t expect to enjoy Irony Curtain as much as I did, but when I found myself chuckling at even the first lines of the game, I was a goner."
- Darkstation (4,5/5)

"Irony Curtain: From Matryoshka with Love delightfully intertwines a playful and original concept with an intelligent gameplay, making it one of the most memorably games of the year so far."
- All About Casual Game (4,5/5)

"(...) Irony Curtain is an enjoyable puzzle game that delivers an outlandish yet compelling narrative and will definitely keep your attention all the way through if you’re a fan of off-beat humour and absurd puzzles."
- Critical Hit (8/10)


Thank you so much for your support – all the positive reviews and comments on Steam, the private messages, and social media comments. Glory to Matryoshka!

Irony Curtain: Revolutionary Update #2



Comrades!

Our Leader has granted us another glorious update! If you appreciate our work for the bestest country in the world, don’t forget to write a Steam review!

The newest revolutionary update includes:
  • fixed a blocking bug that could occur when exiting MG Floor Run (For Real This Time™);
  • fixed a blocking bug that might occur on MG Switchboard;
  • fixed a bug that changed the mouse cursor into MG Brick Wall cursor after saving the game;
  • fixed a blocking bug occurring on Palace Courtyard with invisible Choir Leader not allowing Evan to use the ladder;
  • fixed a blocking bug that made throwing a photo into trash almost impossible;
  • fixed a blocking bug that allowed Evan to use oar on the curtain in Leader's Chamber after finishing a minigame;
  • fixed a blocking bug that might prevent the train at the end of the game from stopping;
  • fixed few typos in English and German language versions;
  • fixed a few minor navmesh errors;
  • fixed position of a few dialogue pivots.

IMPORTANT! We are trying our best to ensure that fixes work for the games that have been already started, but you might be forced to start the game again in some cases (e.g. bug with throwing a photo into the trash or using the oar on the curtain after finishing the minigame).

For the glory of Matryoshka!

About This Game

Mind Snares: Alice’s Journey is a mature adventure game that blends together elements of the surreal, psychological thriller, and horror genres.

Alice’s car breaks down and plunges into a river. The next thing she knows, she wakes up in a strange world made of her own memories, dreams and nightmares. Ruling over this bizarre dream land is the mysterious Shadow, who forces the protagonist to face her deepest fears.
In order to escape this ominous, psychedelic world, Alice needs to follow an enigmatic lifeline and locate four magical totems that will allow her to rebuild a bridge back to her own reality. But this proves to be no easy task. Alice must venture deep inside her own subconscious, to face motley characters embodying friendly as well as hostile parts of her own psyche.

Alice solves charades and puzzle that test her intellectual prowess. She must confront the ghosts from her past, suddenly made real by the Shadow’s insidious power.
Will our protagonist muster the strength to defeat her own demons? Or will the Shadow win?

The fate of Alice lies in your hands!

Features

  • Venture through 38 surrealistic, hand-painted locations of Shadow Land!
  • Face 22 mini-games and 19 hidden object scenes!
  • Follow the lifeline to find 4 totems hidden throughout the game!
  • Meet 8 oneiric, but larger than life, characters!
