General Information

Available on:PlayStation 4Jan 19, 2016
PlayStation 5Nov 12, 2020

Developer: La Cosa Entertainment

Genres: Puzzle, Platformer

KLAUS follows an office worker who wakes up in a basement with no idea of who or where he is. With his only clue being the word "KLAUS" tattooed on his arm. He is forced to escape the mechanical & constructivist world in which he finds himself a prisoner. Another playable character: K1, a friendly brute damaged by prolonged imprisonment, embarking on an existential journey, exploring the idea of the fourth wall and awareness of the player playing the game. KLAUS' tight & challenging platforming takes inspiration from hyper-precise classics such as SUPER MEAT BOY & MEGAMAN and combines them with a tense and emotionally engaging narrative akin to those of LIMBO and THOMAS WAS ALONE. With a minimalistic aesthetic and an electronic soundtrack, KLAUS will appeal to gamers both for itsstyle and unique gameplay experience.

Klaus is an unusual, post-modern platformer that reflects on what it means to be alive.

Klaus is a really fascinating game, full of nice little touches, but with flawed controls and some frustrating moments.

Review in Italian | Read full review

One of the most inventive puzzle platformers in years thanks to the way it constantly defies expectations, but the story is nowhere near as interesting as the game design, and it goes on for far too long.
