The first storytelling game about the independence movement in the Russian Far East
Global game publisher CFK, under the leadership of Chang-sig Koo, has announced an exciting addition to the Nintendo Switch lineup today. MazM: Pechka, a gripping historical storytelling game developed by Korean game company Growing Seeds, is set to captivate gamers worldwide starting from February 8th.
MazM: Pechka transports players to the Russian Far East during the early 20th century, immersing them in the tumultuous aftermath of the Russo-Japanese War. Through the eyes of protagonists Pyotr and Asya, players will navigate a world of betrayal, struggle, and affection as they seek their place amidst the political upheaval of the time.
The game’s narrative centers around the real-life events surrounding Jae-hyung Choi, a social worker and independence activist in Russia’s Primorsky Krai region during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Choi, affectionately nicknamed “Pechka,” (Pechka (Печка) is the Russian word for a fireplace/oven), devoted his resources to supporting the Korean diaspora in the Russian Far East, earning a reputation for his warmth and generosity.
In MazM: Pechka, players will experience the gripping story of Pyotr, a man adrift in a world of uncertainty, who ultimately finds himself fighting for the freedom of Joseon (modern-day Korea). Through the game’s meticulously crafted 2D side-scrolling adventure format, MazM: Pechka offers more than just a retelling of historical events; it presents a vivid reimagining of the era through the lens of original characters and their struggles.
What sets MazM: Pechka apart is its commitment to historical accuracy. To ensure the authenticity of the game’s narrative, Growing Seeds collaborated with a team of Korean historical experts, meticulously researching and verifying every aspect of the story. This dedication to detail ensures that players are not only entertained but also educated about this pivotal period in history.
