Easter Eggs in Irony Curtain



Comrades!

Before we announce some more details about the Irony Curtain: From Matryoshka with Love (which you can still add to wishlist by the way), we have something very special for classic adventure games fans!

Although Matryoshkans love potatoes the most, there’s also one more thing close to our hearts. It’s eggs. Easter eggs to be exact.

Irony Curtain is set in the 50s, but we did our best to spice it up a little with pop culture references from modern movies, comics, games and classic point & clicks. It’s kind of mandatory thing when creating the classic adventure game.

Overall, we keep the balance between the story and the references, and there are places you will have a hard time finding them, but sometimes we literally go crazy with Easter eggs in some locations.

Just look at the screenshot below and try to find all the references we’ve hidden there. There’s also a hint under spoiler below:




ANSWERS:
1. key in the shape of Sauron's Eye
2. shape of the island from Monkey Island
3. sketch of a key game from Machinarium
4. crow from Enigmatis 2
5. Pirates of the Carribean key
6. Konami Code


The medals are more monothematic because they are all inspired by the works of one studio. Can you guess what every one of them refers to?

The lucky journalist will be the first ever person to bask in the light of merciless merciful Leader, who is the embodiment of all that is good as well as having the best-looking stash in history. The sponsored visit also includes an interrogation a meeting with our Minister of Propaganda Information, Vlad, whose job is very cruel crucial to our country. So, without further ado, stay away from welcome to Matryoshka!”

Take a look behind the Irony Curtain in a satirical point-and-click adventure inspired by the best works of LucasArts and Daedalic Entertainment! See Matryoshka through the eyes of Evan, a goofy journalist, who travels to this far away, secluded, and odd communist regime. Investigate the secrets of the bizarre communist country, witness a story full of unpredictable twists and turns, and meet the mysterious Supreme Leader!



What business might the dictator loving father of the Matryoshkan nation have with a lowly, capitalist pen pusher?

Original Setting: fictional Cold War era

The game setting has been inspired by the factual events of the ’50s – the Cold War and power struggle between the capitalist West and communist East. Thanks to setting it in an alternative universe, though, it is unbound by the duties of historical accuracy, which allows the introduction of the wackiest adventures and most unique characters.

Inspired by classic point-and-clicks

All the fun without any of the drawbacks! We remember too darn well what irritated us no end in the ye-olden-day point-and-clicks, and we want to deliver a game free of that frustration. No dream-logic, and no odd puzzles scattered around that make no sense. All you get are straightforward solutions that allow you to use your common sense to solve the riddles. No pixel-hunting, no listening to low-quality audio riddles for hours, no-nonsense.

The Political Satire

Part of the fun derived from playing Irony Curtain is its humor, present in almost every scene in a variety of forms – from slapstick to satire to situational humor. If you enjoy laughing your heart out, you will enjoy Irony Curtain – especially if you know something about the politics in Russia and the rest of the former Soviet Bloc.

Cool characters

The characters of Matryoshka are based on vivid, strong archetypes, equipped with their own twists and quirks that invite you to explore their background and personality. They will guide you through the entertaining political intrigue, ensuring there is never a dull moment – because there can be no dull moment in Matryoshkha, the bestest country in the world!

Prepare For


  • 22 hand-painted locations that look surprisingly better than their original counterparts.
  • 9 postulates introduced during the first Matryoshkan Revolution that nobody remembers or cares about.
  • 170 black market items – you really won't know what to do with some of them!
  • A 5-year plan that no one ever hoped to achieve, and neither should you.
  • 1,951 jokes punishable by political imprisonment.
