'Kalaban' is a horror-themed action-adventure, with an emphasis on storytelling.
The game is set in the year 1995, in an alternate history version of Finland. The main character of the game is Bob, a hermit and an American who has moved to Finland. Bob's cabin is attacked by a mutant monster, which triggers the story. He must find out what is going on around him and discover the reason behind the weird outbreak.
During the game you will encounter fellow NPCs, who will react to your actions. The narrative is focused on the player at all times, without cutscenes or cinematics. You will experience the fight for survival first hand, and explore the environments in an open world manner. Gathering loot, solving clues, talking to different survivors and backtracking are all required to get through the story.
The development team consists of four members: Harri Jokinen (coding, design and art), Tuukka Kuusisto (creative director), Vesa-Pekka Koivisto (character design and animation) and Eetu Suoranta (music and sound effects).
