The recent announcement of Dikanka 2 inspired many comments here about Daikatana
), inspiring Step Creative to clarify that they are not
making a game based on Daikatana, nor has their upcoming project anything to do
Recently Russian game developing company Step Creative Group
has announced a project Evenings on a Farm near Dikanka 2: Evening on the Eve of
Ivan Kupal Holiday, a beautiful animated 2D adventure after the novellas of the
famous Russian author Nikolai Vasilievich Gogol.
According to the discussion of the press-release at the extra-popular
Internet-resource Bluesnews.com with more than forty comments, it’s obvious that
many people read ‘Dikanka 2’ as ‘Daikatana 2’ (the original Daikatana was
released in the 90s by John Romero and Ion Storm). We even received a ‘Contact
message for Step CG’, which says we should change the name if we don’t want to
mix up the gamers’ associations.
However, we must notice that in the title of our game we use the original name
of a small Ukranian village Dikanka from the cycle of novellas written by famous
all over the world Russian author Gogol (please, don’t read as Google!).
To avoid all the further mistakes Step CG decided to make this press-release,
where all the gamers are asked not to confuse Dikanka with Daikatana. The name
of our adventure Evenings on a Farm near Dikanka 2: Evening on the Eve of Ivan
Kupal Holiday, or ‘Dikanka 2’ remains as we are not privileged to change the
