We learned a few months back that Kvark is coming to Switch sometime this year. We still don’t have a release date for the title, but the PC version is out today. That release came with a new trailer, which you can check out above.
Kvark is a retro-inspired FPS that pays homage to such games as Doom, Quake, Duke Nukem, and Wolfenstein 3D. Born out of a love for the genre, developed on Unreal Engine 5, and improved with modern solutions such as up-to-date rendering techniques and adaptive audio, the game should make all who still remember late nights spent playing these classics feel right at home.
It’s the late 80s in the Post-Soviet Czech Republic. Times are tough. People are struggling to find a job that pays well enough to put food on the table. So when a job opportunity arrives to start working for Kvark – a pure nuclear energy company looking for miners to work in the uranium mines, you don’t think twice. It’s hard, it’s dangerous, and yet, thanks to Kvark’s sophisticated propaganda, there are countless applicants for such demanding work. So you are overjoyed when, finally, after a successful interview, you are taken underground as a new employee…
The recruitment went well, but the happy thrill didn’t last, and it quickly turned into fear upon waking up alone, locked in a dark cell. The last thing you remember is the onboarding at reception. Now you are awakened by the sound of nearby explosions and shouting. Confused by not only the surrounding chaos, but also the drastic change in surroundings, you struggle to grasp the situation. All the cells are open and those once locked within are long gone. Seems like you’re the last prisoner in this terrifying facility.
How did you end up in this mess? Why did everybody escape? What the hell is going on? Those are but a few questions ringing in your head louder than the sirens and emergency calls around you.
