Katyusha is a Platform/RPG, devoted to the popular character named in the original Russian song, written by Mikhail Isakovsky and composed by Matvei Blanter in 1938.

Loresoft is proud to announce the development of a Platform/RPG which will bring Katyusha to life! A character that has never been seen before in a movie or video game, Katyusha was Russia's most popular song in World War II as it was encouraging soldiers between battles. The song describes a young girl named Katyusha. Who is Katyusha? Let's meet her.

Born and raised in Smolensk, hometown of the song's writer Mikhail Isakovsky, young Katyusha becomes an adult by facing humanity's worst fear: World War II. In 1940, standing by the Dnieper river, Katyusha says goodbye to her boyfriend who is leaving to join the Russian army. Her boyfriend fights in Russian battles during World War II. They exchange letters together but haven't seen each other for one year.

In 1941 Germany invades Russia. Katyusha lives near the borders. Her boyfriend advises her to leave and save her life. Katyusha leaves but her feelings won't let her abandon her boyfriend. She wants to find him. So she decides to leave on the east and join the Russian army. That would be her only hope of finding him back one day.

A Platform/RPG full of emotions
Katyusha is a fast-paced Platform/RPG which contains lots of emotional moments. Take control of Katyusha as she has to survive in Russia during World War II. The combat system includes melee and ranged weapons, among with stealth kills.

A levelling system allows you to gain xp, level up and train your skills. Katyusha's skills include healing and giving orders to her dog or grey eagle to attack her enemies. Many of her skills will be revealed in the future. Checkpoints are symbolised by mailboxes as Katyusha sends letters to save her progress.

Real-life letters
When Katyusha's comrades are killed they drop letters. Katyusha will also find letters from German soldiers. All those letters are real-life experiences that soldiers wrote in paper and sent to their families during World War II. We also accept letters from any of you kept from your relatives. You send them via email to info@loresoft.gr and those will be posted, either with the original poster, or using alternate names. Photo of letters are required to prove the identification.

Full announcement of Katyusha will be done to the media in a few days among with our announcement trailer.

Katyusha lyrics

English

Apple and pear trees were a-blooming,
Mist was creeping on the river.
Katyusha set out on the banks,
On the steep and lofty bank.

She was walking, singing a song
About a grey steppe eagle,
About her true love,
Whose letters she was keeping.

Oh you song! Little song of a maiden,
Head for the bright sun.
And reach for the soldier on the far-away border
Along with greetings from Katyusha.

Let him remember an ordinary girl,
And hear how she sings,
Let him preserve the Motherland,
Same as Katyusha preserves their love.

Russian

Расцветали яблони и груши
Поплыли туманы над рекой
Выходила на берег Катюша
На высокий берег на крутой

Выходила, песню заводила
Про степного сизого орла
Про того, которого любила
Про того, чьи письма берегла

Ой, ты, песня, песенка девичья
Ты лети за ясным солнцем вслед
И бойцу на дальнем пограничье
От Катюши передай привет

Пусть он вспомнит девушку простую
Пусть услышит, как она поет
Пусть он землю бережет родную
А любовь Катюша сбережет

Расцветали яблони и груши
Поплыли туманы над рекой
Выходила на берег Катюша
На высокий берег на крутой
