Survive the horror.
Survive the horror. Remote Human

The horror game Code Alkonost is scheduled to be launched in 2023 on PC, and it offers psychological and survival horror elements set in a dark fantasy world inspired by Slavic mythology. Players can look forward to experiencing stories and an art style never before seen in this genre. A public demo is planned to be released in the fall of this year, with the first chapter available in the first quarter of 2023.

The game tells the story of twin sisters Sasha and Aleksandra, who left gifts in front of the idol of the Slavic god named Perun. They both believe that the gods would give them peace and health in the Jawia world. As Sasha is handing over the food, Aleksandra gets playful and hides from Sasha. This leads to Sasha discovering the entrance to the Forbidden, a place said to be the destination of robbers when they’re given the death penalty. It’s also believed to be where demons wander.

As Sasha arrives at the Forbidden Forest, she hears her sister screaming and decides to enter the forest. However, the sun has set and the entrance to the forest is now closed. Can Sasha survive the horror?
