Vasilis, the main character, has lost her husband Peter in the rebellious city center. The city has plunged into chaos by constant riots, and almost every day something is burned or someone is killed. Having been abandoned by the government, the center is now dominated by local workers and students, who were able to build four towers that bring life back to those that have died. Vasilis is a game which focuses on characters and story. It is divided into five chapters in which the player will deal with riots, cults, and cruel war events. The game is inspired by Ukrainian political events from 2014.

Vasilis Reviews

Vasilis isn’t going to be the type of game for someone who’s looking for a “fun” experience with engaging gameplay. Instead, it’s the sort of title that uses the artistic potential of video games to provide perspective. It excels in this area thanks to a unique presentation style and is worth the investment for those looking to play something different.

This is a very strange game, and I can’t rate it very highly due to the confusion in the story. However, as an experience I found it fairly remarkable. The drawings, motion, and atmospheric soundtrack made it something I won’t be forgetting anytime soon. If I ever find a better explanation of what the story is, I may go back and try it again to see if I can follow along better. I would not be averse to wandering around this surreal environment again, and the nifty time travel feature you unlock at the end makes that a very inviting prospect.
