Developers Jujubee want to “to tackle serious and controversial themes, inspiring and encouraging gamers to expand their knowledge about the world around us,” and they’ve certainly picked a serious topic with their first game, Kursk. The game’s plot will be fact based and tells the tragic story of the Russian atomic submarine K-141 Kursk which sank in the Barents Sea in August 2000.
“It’s true that games are becoming more complex, offering an incredible audio-visual experience, and allowing us to lose ourselves in a virtual world, but they rarely help us grow,” said Michał Stępień, CEO of Jujubee. “That is why we want to step outside the self-contained world of video game subject matter and invite players to broaden their knowledge about history or the actual world. We’re convinced that KURSK will be a very attractive title to anyone looking for an ambitious and mature game.”
Kursk will be available for PC, Mac, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
