Soviet Unterzögersdorf Part 2

March 9th, 2009 by Crusader

The second part of the adventure game series Soviet Unterzögersdorf has been released by the art-tech-philosophy group monochrom (thanks BoingBoing!). Featuring several techno-celebs, the game is set in a fictional Soviet-allied republic struggling to maintain its identity in the 21st century:

Soviet Unterzoegersdorf (pronounced «oon-taa-tsee-gars-doorf») is the last existing client republic of the USSR. The soviet enclave maintains no diplomatic relationship with the surrounding so-called “Republic of Austria” or with the capitalist fortress “European Union”. The downfall of the people’s motherland — the Soviet Union — in the early 1990s had a devastating effect on the country’s intra-economic situation. External reactionary forces threatened the last remaining proletarian paradise. Party secretary Wladislav Gomulka has been kidnapped and is being held in US-Oberzoegersdorf. We must save comrade Gomulka! Because communism isn’t an opinion. It’s a promise.

The port utilizes CodeWeavers’ CrossOver tech; you can also still download the humorous first chapter here.

    The CodeWeavers bundled version of wine doesn’t work for anyone I’ve talked to, and it’s not particularly obvious how to go about getting support for it. Not a great advert for CodeWeavers really.

    However, just install wine from your distro’s package manager and run it directly with that.

    It’s a shame really, I suspect that having to use wine to run the game will put a lot of people off, but these games are fantastic.

    IIRC, the first game wasn’t wine based at all. Check that out if wine is putting you off trying the second.

    Comrades!
    CodeWeavers are currently creating V1.1 that should resolve most of the sound problems the People are complaining about. In the meantime, here’s the teleworkaround:
