Irony Curtain: From Matryoshka with Love Review

Take a look behind the Irony Curtain in this satirical point-and-click inspired by the best works of LucasArts and Daedalic Entertainment! Experience the totalitarian Matryoshka through the eyes of Evan – a low-ranking, goofy journalist involuntarily pulled right into the middle of an espionage stand-off between two powers. Jump into the wacky spy adventure, uncover secrets of the bizarre communist country (and the powerful capitalist empire!), witness a story full of unpredictable twists and turns, and discover the true agenda of the mysterious Supreme Leader.

You play as Evan Kovalsky, a happy-go-lucky USA citizen who is a massive advocate of the Soviet-Era parody nation Matryoshka. Acting somewhat daft and bewildered to the world around him, Evan gets sent a mysterious invitation to attend his beloved international nation which sets the tone for the rest of the game.

The story has amazing vivid animated cutscenes with genuine 90’s sentiments at heart. The developers have completely understood what makes 90’s games as good as they were and brought it into 2019. We have Evan the main character of the game who is living and working in the ‘states, is young, naïve and a somewhat confused writer. We have a completely satirical USSR. So much so that the entire country is modelled after every meme and Ronald Reagan joke ever told about Communism. And then we have the best part. The puzzles. The hundreds of puzzles that require extraordinary thinking on how to solve them. Some even bend logic and require out of the box thinking, but that… that’s what made 90’s games as good as they were. If you ever played a point-and-click adventure before, you know how to play Irony Curtain, too.

Irony Curtain: From Matryoshka with Love is a funny, tongue-in-cheek take on the Point-and-Click adventure games from yester-year such as Leisure suit Larry, The secret of monkey island and day of the tentacle.
