The Franz Kafka Videogame is a smart, beautiful and challenging game. However, its very short duration makes it feel like it has wasted a lot of potential.

The Franz Kafka Videogame is a unique adventure game experience, filled with unique art style and accessible puzzles. However, a baffling story that goes nowhere and a dreadfully short length make the game simply adequate rather than surreal.

I commend the developer for taking on such an odd corner of literature and creating a unique story inspired by a Bohemian author.

The Franz Kafka Videogame is an exquisite recipe that combines books, videogames and a great art direction, and the overall result is pretty unique. Unfortunately the puzzles, albeit well-thought, require not always clear and require a good knowledge of the author. The gameplay is best suited for a mobile experience, anyway.
