Contest: Take a peek behind point and click title Irony Curtain


Does the Irony Carpet match the Irony Curtain?

Today’s contest is for a Steam copy of satirical point and click adventure title Irony Curtain!

Satire is tough to do, man. You have to be subtle enough without being too in your face, but obvious enough for the average cretin, like me, to understand. It’s a tough balance! Which is why I pretty much only do fart jokes.

Irony Curtain looks to make a smart satire out of Cold War spy intrigue. Come give it a shot on our dime!

Read some press material, comrade.

Irony Curtain: From Matryoshka with Love is a satirical p’n’c inspired by the classic adventure games. It smuggles you out of your comfort zone and throws into the middle of a Cold War spy intrigue – and there’s an even bigger game being played…

Take a look behind Irony Curtain in a satirical point and click inspired by the best works of LucasArts and Daedalic Entertainment! Experience Matryoshka through Evan – a low-ranking, goofy journalist involuntarily pulled right into the middle of an espionage stand-off between two powers. Hop onto the wacky spy adventure, uncover secrets of the bizarre communist country (and the powerful capitalistic empire!), witness the story full of unpredictable twists and turns and discover the true agenda of the mysterious Supreme Leader!

What can you expect:

  • An original setting: fictional Cold War era – alternate reality unbound by historical accuracy, and the communistic Matryoshka full of people who work all the possible angles to navigate this illogical, odd country.
  • Inspired by classic adventure games – but better. No dream-logic, no pixel hunting. No-nonsense. Pure P&C fun.
  • The Spy Intrigue – sleeper spies, stolen secrets and world-domination plots wrapped up in layers of humour.
  • Quirky characters – Meet the mysterious Leader ruling Matryoshka with an irony fist, the clueless and gullible Evan, the brave and witty Agent Anna and the notorious Minister of Propaganda…
  • Do it your way – some of the puzzles are non-linear and can be solved in two or more different ways.
  • 21 hand-painted locations – that look surprisingly better than their original inspirations.
  • 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 cleverly sneaked-in easter eggs – some of them punishable by political imprisonment.
  • Music – no more irksome elevator music. Irony Curtain’s score is as grand as Matryoshka itself, written by the state composer Arkadiusz Reikowski (known from Layers of Fear, Observer, Kholat, My Brother Rabbit).
  • Full voice-over – in English, and subtitles in Polish and German.

Well, they certainly covered their bases.

To enter to win, comment below telling us your secret Cold War super duper spy name. They called me Wet Lizard back in the day because the Soviets couldn’t grab me! Every time they tried, I slipped out of their hands like a wet lizard. It had nothing to do with my pale green skin and the fact that I ran around a lot in the nude. Trust me on this.

We have three Steam copies to give away. Winners will be drawn Wednesday, May 29. Make sure to comment using a Dtoid account with your current email address on file. Don’t have an account? Sign up here to tell us all about your wet lizard.

Irony Curtain is available now for Steam, with a console release coming later this summer. Head over to PC Invasion for more chances to win a copy.
