Flying Cafe Games’ strange and equally fascinating futuristic, cyber-junk adventure game Cradle is set for release on July 24th at the end of this month. The pre-release trailer for the game recently went live to give you a look at what’s to come.
The game is set to be made available on Steam and the pre-release trailer gives you a small sampling of what sort of oddities, wonders and strange encounters that await you in the world of Cradle. Check it out below.
Official page: https://cradle-game.com Cradle is a sci-fi first-person-view quest designed for the player to explore the surrounding world. The story is built around the relations of the protagonist and a mechanical girl who by quirk of fate found themselves amidst the desert.
That music is awesome. It’s from Valentine Parkhomenko, a Ukrainian artist who has put together the music you’re hearing in the video above specifically for Cradle. You can grab another auricular taste of Parkhomenko’s musical talents with the “Warm Stones” track from the Cradle OST below. You can also hear more of his music over on his Soundcloud page.
As for Cradle. The YouTube video describes the story as such…
“The story is built around the relations of the protagonist and a mechanical girl who by quirk of fate found themselves amidst the desert. The player’s task is to repair the mechanical body of his companion and solve the mystery of the neglected entertainment park located not far from the yurt together.”
The pre-release video, despite being skimpy on details of the story and the gameplay not being very present in the promotional trailer, many users are excited for the game because they’ve been following this title through the bumpy development process since way back in 2013.
For those of you who haven’t been following Cradle with the kind of dedicated verve as the local Flying Cafe fandom, there’s another trailer that better helps give you an idea of what the gameplay looks like. Anyone familiar with classic first-person, point-and-click adventure games will be right at home with the title. Check it out below.

The animations in this game are really, really impressive. The visuals are kind of disturbing and surreal all at the same time… like a dream hardwired through circuit boards and idyllic pastures. It’s definitely a unique scenario for a game to take place… out in the middle of nowhere yet an excess of circuitry and technology all jammed into small areas… or in the case of the dilapidated structure, a lot of objects jammed into a rather large area.
I can’t really think of a game quite like this one, but it does remind me a little bit of a mix of Immortal Ad Vitam and Ice Pick’s The Void.
As a matter of fact, there’s a lot of striking similarities between Cradle and The Void as far as confusion and discovery go. You can see what I mean with the gameplay video of the latter below.
Genre: Adventure/Modern Art, Release: 2009, My Rating: 8/10 About the video: Some games are hard to describe – The Void is a good example. Is it a shooter? An adventure? Is it a game at all or is it somekind of modern art?
If you’re interested in discovering more of the world of Cradle and you want to see what the game is like in all its full-on glory, you can look for it to launch on July 24th. For more information on Flying Cafe Games’ title, feel free to pay a visit to the game’s official website.
