Play OverviewPlay Overview

Indika (2024) is a narrative game set in alternative 19th-century Russia where a young nun faces the clash of religion and the harsh realities of peasant life. Play involves navigating the distorted and confused world with only the devil as your companion. It stands out for the unusual choice of camera angles that intensify the adventure into a world out of kilter with itself.

Indika may look like a typical nun facing the trials and monotony of monastery life - she appears humble and innocent. However, this young girl has made a secret acquaintance with the devil. This takes her beyond the safety of the monastery to discover a world that is as absurd as it is tragic in the way of Dostoyevski and Bulhakov novels.

As you progress through the strange world, you must question both religion and political authority. You guide Indika through the linear treatise by navigating and solving environmental puzzles in the hope of finding the answers she needs before the end of her journey.

The result is not only an intriguing world to investigate but an unusual way to consider topics like heaven and hell, god and the devil, obedience and humility - and how these ideas are put to work for the aims of religion and the state.

Rated for younger players in Australia. Rated IGEA M.
The game is intentionally unsettling, presenting disorienting scenes with supernatural elements. The strange perspective and reality where demonic powers play create an intentionally charged challenge to religion. There are scenes where the main character is seen smoking.
