WHITE SHADOWS

We are not welcome here
The game immediately warns about the topics that will be raised in it. Here and racism, and xenophobia, and violence with forced labor. There is also cruelty to animals: all the characters here are representatives of the fauna. Wolves, pigs, rats – “all animals are equal,” as posters and neon signs say.

Among other things, he knows how to run fast (yes, he has legs), and he does rolls, and he’s ready to shoot from a shotgun in the face if this face doesn’t like it … Continue reading
