Stalin vs. Martians Announced

Black Wing Foundation, Dreamlore and N-Game announce Stalin vs. Martians, a real-time strategy game planned for release this year based on an appearance by aliens in Siberia during World War II. If you think this sounds bizarre, no worries, apparently the developer does too (the term they coin for the game is "brainscrewing"). The Stalin versus Martians Website offers screenshots from the project, and the following description:

Obviously, the main concept behind the game is pretty much clear if you can see its name. It just speaks for itself. The fact that such game exists is quite an event. It doesn't really matter what's behind the name or if the game is playable at all. The concept is enough. Simply makes your brain explode.

Meanwhile, we decided to move a little bit further than making up a bizzare concept and product's weird name. Stalin vs. Martians is also a good real-time strategy. Probably one of the best in years and years. You can quote us on that.

The main ideology behin Stalin vs. Martians is to have some fun. We must assure you that we have plenty of that developing our beloved Stalin. And you, yeah you, will have your part too. Our game is unique. Trashy and absolutely over-the-top, arthouse kitsch production in its finest. With a good technical basis and some healthy gameplay innovations. Stalin is anything but boring and it looks pretty like schoolgirl with a kitten. Can you ask for more?

Check the current PC games release schedule. Especially the strategy section. Doubt you'll find something more interesting than Stalin vs. Martians. We bring you the craziest PC experience of 2008.

Stalin vs. Martians is the natural choice for anyone bored of hundreds and hundreds identical "World War II strategies". It's the perfect choice for anyone who just hates the strategy genre. And surely it's the weirdest and most brainscrewing PC title of the year.

The game is more or less plot-driven, so we're working on a script wild enough to fit into our concept. In short, the outline looks like this:

Year 1942. Summer. The martians suddenly drop off their butts somewhere in Siberia and attack the glorious people of Holy Mother Russia. It is a hard time for USSR as you might know from the history books if you ever attended school. The situation is really fucked up, so comrade Stalin takes the anti-ET military operation under his personal control. The operation is a top secret and virtually nobody knows about the fact of extraterrestial intervention.

Well, that's it. Under the Stalin's command we must take control over Red Army forces and kick some alien ass.

What shocks the most is that the martian forces look like a gay parade of Nintendo-styled cartoonish creatures.

As you know by now, Stalin vs. Martians is quite a a sight for sore eyes, sick and unique. We think you're already craving for a copy or two, so here's some more good news. The game is set for a late Fall release, so you don't have to wait forever to lay your hands on Mr. Stalin.

This game is too good to be true. But it's true. It's here and now.

"It doesn't really matter...if the game is playable at all"

Finally! Truth in video game advertising.
