A short point & click game inspired by writings of Franz Kafka. It is weird with a unique hand-drawn graphics style, unusual humor, dealing with some common stereotypes in order to point them out in a non-offensive way, old Jewish music and voice overs for all dialogues (featuring a strong central-european accent :-).


Mouse - click for movement or interaction. Moving to upper part of the screen shows inventory. Space to skip dialogues, Esc for menu. The game saves your progress automatically.

About the Game

The game was inspired by a short story called Before the Law which is part of The Trial by Franz Kafka. You can read the English version or the Czech version online.
