Press release:
8 SEPTEMBER 2021.
The Russia-based indie games developer Provodnik Games today announced with great thrill and joy that their award-winning dystopian visual novel/adventure game “Dull Grey” is now available for PC via Steam.

After a console launch earlier this year, this award-winning visual novel can now be enjoyed by a whole new audience of narrative game fans on Steam.

Inspired by the visual style of early 20th Century Soviet art and the narrative works of Russia’s finest storytellers, Dull Grey lets players experience the emotional story of a mother and son, the concept of free will and the search for happiness in a bleak retro-futuristic world controlled by the robotic Progress program.

Players will be making the same choice again and again – should the son become a lamplighter or a tallyman – through an unusual binary choice mechanic that leads to an unexpected multitude of endings and secret content to discover. Dull Grey is a dramatic visual novel like no other, designed to be experienced through multiple playthroughs.

Can players lead the son to happiness and see his story unfold in full colour?

“[Dull Grey] successfully delivers what every visual novel strives for—transcending words to pull the reader into its world and rewarding players who are curious and patient enough to see beneath its surface.” – Spencer Icasiano, But Why Tho Podcast

“Dull Grey is an intriguing exercise in minimalism”Cameron Daxon, Goomba Stomp

Roman Vlasov, co-founder of Provodnik Games said: “The release on consoles was an unexpected and exciting adventure. Now we feel that our game is coming to the store where it really belongs. We can’t wait for Steam players to get to know Dull Grey, and we hope that the game will resonate in their hearts.”

Dull Grey will launch on PC via Steam on September 8th, priced £3.99, $4.99, €3.99, 175 руб.

About Dull Grey
