INDIKA’s “Existential Essence” Revealed in Latest Trailer

Set to release next month, learn more about what awaits with 11 bit studios and Odd Meter’s INDIKA with a new trailer that takes a deep dive into its themes of self-discovery.

With inspiration drawn from cinematic auteurs like Lanthimos, Aster, and Aronofsky, along with  literary authors like Bulgakov, Dostoevsky, and Gogol, the story of INDIKA features a story that is intertwined with disorienting threads and philosophical debates.

INDIKA – “Fair/Unfair” | Official Trailer

Rufus Kubica, Product Management Lead at 11 bit studios, said the following:

“INDIKA stands as a testament (pun intended) to the depth and maturity that video games can achieve as an artistic medium.

The game not only combines an imaginative narrative with a dark sense of humor but also delves into the profound depths of human emotion, spirituality, and the nature of sin. Produced by the indie studio Odd Meter, INDIKA challenges the conventional norms of game development. 

The juxtaposition of religious themes with the harsh, twisted landscapes of Russia, and the unlikely companionship between Indika and the devil himself, creates a compelling narrative that is both odd and emotionally resonant. 

INDIKA is an experience that at times pushes the boundaries of what games can be, offering players seeking something more meaningful and mature an unforgettable journey beyond the confines of traditional gaming narratives. 

It’s truly a passion project that resonates deeply with our publishing vision.”

The full release of the game will come out for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. Note that the PC version will launch on May 2, while the console versions will launch later that month.

Note that part of INDIKA’s revenue will be donated to help children that have been affected by the war in Ukraine.
