Mal vorweg: Ich habe einige Werke von Kafka gelesen und ja, es kommen viele Kafka Themen im Spiel vor. Zudem macht alles (wie bei Kafkas Werken) nie wirklich 100% Sinn. Ich stimme also einigen anderen Reviews nicht zu, dass kein Zusammenhang besteht.

Zum Spiel selbst: Ich bin absolut fasziniert von den visuellen Elementen des Spiels. Ich liebe die grafische und animatorische Ausarbeitung, der Soundtrack ist super und auch die Umsetzung der Story. Die Rätsel sind erfrischend anders aber manchmal auch etwas fies.

Punkte Abzug gibt es sicher für die Länge. Ich hätte mir hier noch ein oder zwei Episoden mehr gewünscht, dann wäre es perfekt. Leider war das Spiel viel zu schnell zu Ende.

Ich denke, dass das Spiel sicher polarisiert, was sich auch in den anderen Reviews zeigt: entweder hasst man es oder man liebt es =)

Ist einfach nur ein Klickspiel, dass durch Teils unsinnige Rätsel ohne Logikansatz,Kafkaesk wirken soll.Wenn man nicht alles von Kafka gelesen hat fällt einen wahrscheinlich nicht mal auf, dass das Spiel seinen Namen trägt. Andere Rätsel die noch Nachvollziehbar sind, sind nervige Geduldsrätsel.

Wenn der Preis ohne Preissenkung der tatsächliche ist, ist dieses Spiel eine Unverschämheit.

Die Rätsel, die das Denken um 10 Ecken erfordern, machen für mich die Faszination des Spiels aus. Die Atmosphäre ist zudem charmant. Kafkaesk oder nicht, ist mir persönlich egal. Das Spiel sollte aber allen Spaß machen, die gerne knobeln!

Ich habe es für ca 65Cent im Angebot erworben,
für den Preis kann man eigentlich nicht meckern.. ;)
Aaaber..
Den vollen Preis würde ich nicht zahlen.

Das Spiel ist zwar schräg und skurril und es gibt ein paar merkwürdige, parodistische Szenen,
die auch Kafka verwirrt hätten,
doch irgendwie ist es eher die 'Was zur Hölle haben sie sich dabei gedacht'-Art.
Was nun mal auch nicht schlecht sein muss.
Ich habe hauptsächlich weiter gespielt, weil ich wissen wollte,
was sich die Macher wohl als nächstes haben einfallen lassen und wie es denn nun ausgeht..

Einige Rätsel empfand ich auch als unlösbar ohne Hinweise..
(Einen ersten Hinweis kann man pro Kapitel allerdings nach 3 Minuten erhalten.)
Aber es waren auch einige sehr amüsante dabei.

Die grafische Darstellung ist sehr gelungen, wenn auch gewöhnungsbedürftig,
für mich zumindest.

Die Illustrationen und die Musik sind wahnsinnig schön. Die Geschichte passt zu Kafka - vor Beginn des Spiels war es meine größte Sorge, dass der Spieleentwickler möglicherweise am Versuch, eine kafkaeske Erzählung zu schreiben, scheitern könnte. Im Gegensatz zu einigen Rezensent*innen vor mir finde ich das Spiel allerdings gelungen:

Die Rätsel passen zum Thema und dem Gesamtsetting, sie sind skurril und die Lösungen oft absurd. Ich hatte meinen Spaß daran, an der Lösung zu knobeln, die oft nur über Umwege erreichbar ist. Einige der anderen Rezensionen zu diesem Spiel lassen vermuten, dass die Rezensent*innen versuchten, auf direktem Wege an die Lösung zu kommen und sich nicht die Zeit nehmen wollten, Dinge auszuprobieren, sich genau umzusehen und auch mal ins Blinde hineinzuklicken.


Fazit: Dieses Spiel ist für geduldige Menschen gemacht, die Spaß am Rätseln haben und die Geschichte samt Illustrationen und Musik auf sich wirken lassen möchten.

A very disappointing experience. The works of Kafka are mixed up without any kind of the magic of the novels. The visual style is quite compelling, but that is for me the only positive thing. The music is okay, but a bit too normal for such a game. The puzzles are either unlogic or very easy. In any case, this game is so short, for 7 € you get roughly one hour of gameplay, if you are used to point and click. If you are using the hints, this is even way shorter. The worst puzzle is the random fighting and how you beat the second of the enemies, this is just so out of place. The parable of the gatekeeper is not really good used and there is no real story that is told. Gregor Samsa as detective is a neat idea, but lastly this does not lead to more in depth gameplay. If oyu are looking for a short and more compelling point & click, check out Machinarium.

Ein tolles Spiel, auch wenn die Story und der Bezug zum Schriftsteller etwas auf der Strecke bleiben, möchte ich es dennoch empfehlen. Die Atmosphäre, meine Affinität zum skurrilen und die liebevoll gestalteten Figuren haben mich dann doch dazu animiert, mich durch die manchmal nicht ganz so einfachen Logik-Rätsel zu kämpfen.

I will admit up front not being knowledgeable of Kafka except in name alone. It looked like a neat game, and the price was right, so here I am.

The puzzles are a good brain teaser and test your logic in somewhat odd settings. The music and sound effects are pleasant, adding to the game's atmosphere. The interface is straightforward and easy to jump into, even with no tutorial of any kind.

There are also a few funny moments to sort of break your concentration, but I won't spoil them here. Ok maybe a little hint of one: I gotta give props to their throwback to a certain song by Queen.

A pretty straightforward puzzle clicker. A few of the puzzles had me stumped for a bit, but the clue system proved to be useful when I needed it. I'd say pick it up when it's on sale if you need a break from the truly mind-bending puzzlers out there.

Either I'm an idiot, or the designers are evil geniuses. Everything has a logical answer, but those answers are arrived at through maddeningly convoluted means, and it mostly feels like I'm manually brute-forcing a series of passwords. If your first thought upon seeing a slide puzzle is to arrange it properly, this is not the game for you. If you like a consistent control system, look elsewhere. Like being able to skip cinematics or dialogue? Sorry, no. If you're just a Kafka fan, I hope you can deal with gutted or repurposed characters and plots.
And yet, I keep coming back to it. Not because I'm having fun, but because I'm angry at it. Save yourself, don't buy this.

I'd like to give it a thumbs up... I really like the artwork, the music, the simplicity, and the fact that the puzzles don't have instructions. Figuring out what to do is part of the puzzle itself. However, too many puzzles have no logic to them whatsoever, and when they do it's not consistent. They rely on sheer dumb luck of clicking on or doing some random thing. That, to me, took away the enjoyment of the game.

Personally, I don’t think making a simplistic adventure game with HOG mechanics, cardboard art and a rudimentary (at best) understanding of Kafka’s writings does any service to Franz Kafka OR to video-games, but the developers must have been desperate.

Interactive story with integrated delays

It's supposed to be a puzzle game, but many of the obstacles come down to trial an error, randomness, and/or waiting 3 minutes for the hint to release. The art is nice, the story is nice, if the hints didn't take the 3 minute wait I'd recommend it for that, but as it is, I sat twiddling my thumbs rather more often than I prefer. Not what I'm looking for in a game.

P.S. Einige Rätsel sind englische Wortspiele, die nicht eingedeutscht wurden.

This is an odd short point n click game with some puzzles in it. Storywise there's not much to say besides it all being quite weird and there's a few references to Kafka and his books but that's about it.

The art design is really nice and so is the soundtrack. Sadly there's no voice-acting, but maybe that's for the best.

Recommending this game with a slight hesitation, it wasn't bad but it was still maybe not what I expected.

This game, as far as I could tell has little to do with its namesake. More or less just attempting the same level of absurdity, I suppose. All in all, not really worth it. Maybe worthwhile to buy on sale, but definitely not at full price.

The Bad:
1. The Gameplay- Tedious, at best. It’s slow, and most of the puzzles (this is a puzzle game) are just not interesting. More like something that a new designer would make for a class. That being said, a couple of the puzzles were nice. Not interesting, but nice to solve.
2. The Story and Humor- Boring. None of the jokes really hit as funny, and the story is INCREDIBLY bland, even while trying to be quirky.

The Good:
1. The Music?- Yeah, yeah, the music. It was calming. You don’t really hear it all that much, though.
2. The Art- The backgrounds were pretty cool. Esoteric and mundane images coming together made for decent backdrops. The character art was decent. Nothing particularly bad about it.
3. The homage to the sweet kitty at the end. I take back all the bad things I said. 10/10 has a memorial for a sweet fluff at the end.

The game has nothing to do with Kafka's life, but his influence is pervasive throughout the game. Anyone who has read his literary work can spot them immediately during the game. It looks like a point & click game but it has mainly puzzles in each level, quite smart and special. The graphics are inspired by works of surrealism, as they should be, and are accompanied by quite atmospheric music. The overall combination is to the point. And I also loved the Twin Peaks reference.

Sadly, I wanted to like this game : graphics are cool, I like this kind of aestethic, and Kafka univers is deep enought to build something... but it's a game before everything else... A point n clic based on puzzles must rely on logic or something... not pure luck and try until success... It's sadly a no-go for me. :(

I really liked the Franz Kafka Game.

It is a point and click adventure game about Frank Kafka’s most famous literary works. I was really happy to find the Metamorphosis in this game, as I enjoyed reading it.

The story is fine, and the puzzles are good.

The graphics are okay. The art style is unique.

The gameplay itself is rather short (90 minutes), but the soundtrack is great.

[h2]Mixed rating, hmmm[/h2]
Why? Nothing technical atleast. It's probably because the puzzles are not logical, or better said, not logical in the average mind. To understand that, you have to vaguely know who this Kafka is, because I certainly didn't know.
Wikipedia: 1883-1924 (Austria) novelist/short story writer. His work fuses elements of realism and the fantastic. It typically features isolated protagonists facing bizarre or surrealistic predicaments and incomprehensible socio-bureaucratic powers. It has been interpreted as exploring themes of alienation, existential anxiety, guilt, and absurdity.
Aha, so only people familiar with German literature would have known about him.

The puzzles are indeed very surreal, normally I find that frustrating, but since it's the theme of this game, I didn't really mind. The game offers a hint after three minutes, and a second one after five minutes during each puzzle. Most of the time you can't really solve it without the hint, but it's nice to give your surrealistic facets of your mind a try.

Because this is a short game, I recommend a playthrough through this nonsense. The drawings aren't bad, neither is the music. I wouldn't call this a masterpiece, but atleast now I know who Franz Kafka is.

64/100

NB: I did three full playthroughs for the achievement 'unaided', but I can't seem to get it. If anyone knows what I am doing wrong, tell me please! I didn't check the hints, made sure every scene was finished within three minutes. I seem to be the only one with this problem, so it must be me...

An escape from reality.

Take Kafka, Freud, a nice vintage artstyle, a ton of surrealism and a handful of cultural references. Mix thoroughly and let it stir for 100 minutes.

Then you're done.

No bugs and flying fish anymore.

Gameplay-like you get to solve puzzles. Like in Puzzle Quest. Join dots, sort things, crack simple codes - that kind of stuff.


It's a nice surrealistic trip that's definetly worth a play, but since it doesn't even last 2h, wait for a sale.

A fine piece of game.
Let me start off by saying that I always did great at untangling those unconventional type of puzzles, think-out-of-the-box like games or whatever you call it, so it comes with no surprises that I destroyed literally every one of the riddles the game threw at me, except for the bunny one, the gateway one, and that stupid locker shit, my god seriously, numbers resembling letters? Who thought of that? A braindead monkey would settle for that explanation because it can't think greater than that, and I went through some evolutionary steps already (and that is the reason I had troubles with the cannon puzzle too, yeah congratulations if you did it without hints, I'm gonna reward you with bananas).
So, my innate talent at solving brain-twisting conundrums designed for indigo children really paved the way for what I would have become later in life: a broken man, no job, no love and the bare minimum in terms of education.

Wait it looks like I'm rambling again, what I was talking about? Oh yeah the game, it's not that good btw, still I'm gonna give it thumbs up because it made me feel like such a big deal.

Unfortunately I have never read nor seen anything from Franz Kafka (although I know of his work) so I found a few of these puzzles fell beyond my ability to solve them fully without outside help. I also found the Latin hard to translate and, maybe it's just my translation, didn't seem to make all that much sense to me.

However outside of this, it was a fun game. Lots of parables and morals to follow, the puzzles weren't all that hard once you knew what you were looking for [spoiler] (although the pi monkey caught me out). [/spoiler] The art work was interesting and the music was lovely. Overall a nice way to waste a few hours.

The Franz Kafka Videogame is not your usual point and click puzzle game. The puzzles are not always logical and can be quite surreal. You do need to like nonsense story and surreal puzzles, if you don't the game will be nothing but frustration. The art style and mucis are decent, not the best, certainly not the worst. It is a nice, but sadly short game.

A very short game (~2 hours gameplay) full of absurdities—the kinds you'd expect to encounter in a Kafkaesque setting. The puzzles are relatively easy but you need to interact with the game world a lot to explore how the mechanics work and think outside of the box. The story is quite superficial but still enjoyable, and the art style is nice. I'd recommend it if you like puzzle games and Kafka.

I think I was expecting more from the game considering its title. But it has nothing to do with the game at all. Big bummer from Daedalic...

Pretty cool, and kafkaesque!

The story is nice and well presented (though, well, bizarre). The puzzles are challenging to the right degree, and the hints are really helpful in case you get stuck. The art is fantastic, and the soundtrack is gorgeous!

Overall, I found this game really enjoyable and surprising! It is a short story, though.

Egad. Tragically horrible. Most if not all of the puzzles make no sense, and some of the hints are useless.
I played about half way thru, and simply quit.
As a fan of Kafka, I often gotten lost in the frustrations of his protagonists, but being that protagonist is every bit as miserable as you might expect.
I got it for sixty nine cents, and even at that price it was a huge rip-off. Free would be too much.

Im pretty sure i would never played this game until the end without this guide, and a game that needs a guide cant be recommended for others. Especially if you hope for good riddles. Franz Kafka is such an interesting topic for a game, but that ain't it chief

Franz Kafka The Video Game is a good game for fans of the genre looking for quick games and even a little casual, it's not very inviting for new players, given some almost incomprehensible puzzles, on the other hand, the game has some quite simple. The cartoonish aesthetic may seem more childlike, make no mistake, I wouldn't indicate this for a younger audience, the theme and difficulty are not compatible for youngins. It is an interesting game, exciting, and very well structured within its proposal and ambitions. I really liked it, but it is necessary to know if you are the type of player Franz Kafka The Video Game was made for. Do you like puzzles and already have experience in the genre? Are you in the mood for a short game without too much commitment? is the right order!

This is a delightfully surreal point and click adventure with wit, (somewhat obtuse) puzzles, and exceptional art/music. You control Kafka and Gregor at different points in the game and proceed through a series of scenes that span Europe and America. Accompanied by your dog, you encounter a variety of characters and click through dialog and puzzles.

Achievements are fairly straight forward, with one exception. Completionists will need to play the entire game through twice - once without using any hints and once using a hint on every screen. The rub on this is that hints do not become available until you've been in a scene for approximately 3 minutes. There are a lot of scenes so the hint achievement becomes an exercise in idling!

After you have completed a scene, it becomes available to return to and restart at any point. You can quit playing and return right back to the scene from which you exited. Once you have finished the game, you will be returned to the last scene and can scroll backwards to find your desired reentry point. Individual scenes are fairly short so you will not lose much progress if you quit in the middle of something.

This is a very enjoyable, albeit short (perhaps 2-3 hours for a play through without hints), game that I would highly recommend to those who enjoy thoughtful puzzlers and dialog.details that will appeal to your intellect.

One note - McAfee does like the kafka.exe file. It quarantined the executable which prevented me from playing until I added the file name to the 'safe' list. There are details on this in the Steam discussions.

The Franz Kafka Videogame is a puzzle game. As you might have guessed the story is inspired by the works of Franz Kafka. It is pointless to try and describe the story as it is pretty incoherent. Though there is some charm to it with all this absurd going on. The fans will probably like it, because it has a lot of references to novels.

Moving on to the most important for the puzzle game, the gameplay. It has a great variety of puzzles, some try your logic, some require out-of-the-box thinking and some are very simple and solved by clicking every object in the scene. If you get stuck, the game has a hint system. The hints can be obtained only after being stuck for 3 minutes. The hints do a good job of pointing you to the right solution. And after 2 more minutes, you get a second hint, that usually spoils the puzzle completely.

Graphically the game looks gorgeous, but the animations are very simple. Each scene has a lot of small details and references not only to the writings of Kafka, but to pop culture in general. The soundtrack is good, it doesn't get on your nerves, but doesn't have anything memorable.

Pros:
+ Great variety of puzzles
+ Requires thinking outside the box
+ Cute graphics

Cons:
- Very short (around 1-2 hours)
- Incoherent story

If you like puzzles that require thinking differently and/or fan of Franz Kafka, then you'll probably like this game. Recommended to get on sale, since it is very short.

Quite boring point and click game that tries to be very Kafka-esque, but fails to give any meaningful insight on Franz Kafka or any good story behind the game.

The only thing Kafkaesque about this game is when you realise you're wasting your life staring at a screen, clicking things randomly in a nonsensical game that has no point. It's deep.
