“We are preserving the approach that we have developed while working on the Papers, Please adaptation: we try to vividly depict the original game and avoid adding any imagined details,’ says Nikita, ‘That’s why we’ve decided to go with a black-and-white reproduction, drop the dialogues and stick to a silent movie. We believe that this approach will help us convey the grim atmosphere of the game best.” – Nikita Ordynskiy, Founder at KINODOM
