The Chinese Room studio, already known for acclaimed titles like Dear Esther and Everybody's Gone to the Rapture,has announced the console development of the scrolling adventure Little Orpheus,so far exclusive to Apple Arcade and winner of numerous awards.

The adventure is expected on our consoles for March 1st: here are the official details, the announcement trailer and a set of images.

It's 1962, and NASA is trying to send a man to the moon. In a remote corner of Siberia, a Soviet cosmonaut is going in the opposite direction. Comrade Ivan Ivanovich is launched into an extinct volcano in his exploration capsule, Little Orpheus, to reach the center of the Earth. It disappears suddenly.

He reappears three years later, claiming to have saved the world. But he lost the atomic bomb that powered Little Orpheus. He is taken to a secret bunker in the depths of the Urals to be interrogated by the fearsome General Yurkovoi, a man so terrible that not even Stalin would want to offer him a drink. The General rolls up his sleeves, stares at Ivan with ice eyes and says, "Where have you been, comrade? And where is my bomb?" Ivan returns his look and replies: "Well, General, you probably won't believe me, but I'll do my best. Because that's how it started..."

Join our brave but unfortunate hero as he discovers lost civilizations, underwater kingdoms, prehistoric jungles, and lands beyond imagination. Marvel as you battle humanoid Menkv tribes and escape the clutches of horrible monsters! Rejoice as it overcomes insurmountable obstacles and brings socialism to the underworlds!

Little Orpheus is a technicolor scrolling adventure inspired by classic movies like Flash Gordon, Sinbad and The Land Forgotten by Time. Little Orpheus' platforming and puzzles are as simple as they are varied, satisfying both casual players and more experienced adventurers.

Whether you're a fan of historical blockbusters for the family, if you're looking for an exciting and unpredictable story that takes you to the center of the Earth and beyond, or if you're just looking for "ideologically correct" entertainment, join this unlikely hero to embark on an adventure beyond imagination on PC and consoles. With incredible environments, sublime acting and a breathtaking soundtrack, Little Orpheus is an underground epic you won't forget. Comrades, it's time to go to the center!
