Video Review


A pleasant enough art style makes up for very sparse environmental work. The game's visuals do help to convincingly sell the setting and time-period nicely.

Audio Review


The soundtrack is exhausting, with too few tracks that repeat far too often. The majority of it is royalty-free work, which isn't necessarily an issue, but when a polka track that played a great many times had me reaching to mute my game for minutes on end, it became a noticeable problem.

Final Thoughts

I'm glad 'Karaski' tries as hard as it does, but it's a shame it's let down by the overall structure as well as a bevy of technical issues. It's ultimately a swing and a miss, but if Unbound Creations attempts the formula again, there's a solid framework that could be worked into something very interesting. If you're a fan of games like 'The Ship', there might be something here for you, but right now, it might be best left avoided.
