The Impact of the Conflict in Ukraine on the Video Game Industry
The war in Ukraine in 2022 affected many aspects of the country’s economy, and the video game industry was not spared from its consequences. One of the studios that suffered the most was Frogwares, a Ukrainian game developer known for creating suspenseful games such as Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter and The Sinking City.
Frogwares had big plans for a new game, but the war cut short their dreams. They had to shift their focus to a smaller and more concrete development, which resulted in the remake of their 2008 game, Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened. Although the game received good reviews, it was not the game that the Frogwares team had originally envisioned.
Frogwares Reveals Plans for a Dream Game
Despite the challenges that they faced in the past year, Frogwares is now preparing for their “dream game.” In a statement on Steam Community, a Frogwares spokesperson talked about the difficulties they faced during the war and the enormous support they received from the gaming community.
The team had initially planned a game that would require the collaboration of everyone in the office, but the war destroyed that dream. However, with the support of their fans, they feel confident to pursue their next dream game project.
Exciting Future for Frogwares
Frogwares is now looking towards the future with optimism, even though the conflict in Ukraine is far from over. They are grateful for the support they received from their players, which gave them the push to pursue their dream game project.
While we are still waiting for more details about the upcoming game, we can expect great things from Frogwares, especially after their success with Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened. For now, we can enjoy playing their latest installment on all major gaming platforms, and wait for more news about their dream game.
