/for immediate release/

Veljko Kukulj, creator of the most successful Croatian videogames, is developing a game noir on the topic of World War I. The game, which is based on real characters and events, is brimming with political intrigue and allows the player to take part in the dramatic moments that changed the past.

Zagreb, July 9 th 2014 – On the event of the 100 th anniversary of World War I, the “32 bita” development team is working on a game that will bring to life some of the greatest historic events of the early 20 th century using modern technology.

This game about the Great War is based on comprehensive historical research, so it faithfully represents over 300 historical figures. The importance of representing them realistically proves to be especially important during a multiplayer game.

It is not important for a player to be familiar with history. Thanks to the game he will be able to experience some of the most dramatic moments of the previous century. He will do that by following the events from the perspective of a selected character who meets and interacts with persons whose decisions lead to war. These include Gavrilo Princip, Franz Ferdinand and Winston Churchill. We shall work hard to paint a faithful picture of the atmosphere of the time – the news, way of thinking and real emotions, so the player could taste the differences, as well as notice the incredible similarities to the present. It is an ideal game for everybody who likes to think and enjoy a good thriller. Now they can step inside such a thriller themselves,” said Veljko Kukulj, the head of “32 bita” and creator of the most successful Croatian games, “Sraz” and “Suncica”.

The vivid illustrations, made in the spirit of the time, are the work of young Croatian artist Josip Drdic. The game will consist of 6 episodes. The first of them is “An Hour in Sarajevo”, which dissects the events that served as the occasion for World War I. It is being made in full HD and 4k resolutions.

The game will be available in several world languages, and the development team is currently in negotiations with a Western European publisher.
