The Nose, Three Percent Games’ take on Gogol’s short story of the same name, will have players exploring a tiny version of St. Petersburg, searching for their missing nose and talking with the people they meet in this little slice of city.
Major Kovalev woke up one morning to find his nose missing, which is a strange circumstance to find oneself in. The kind of thing you need to deal with right now, since the questions you’d get at work would make it impossible to get anything done, anyway. So, off you go into the streets of the city, but as it turns out, there’s a whole lot going on in town, today. While exploring, you’ll get to see all of the bustling lives that are going on, each with their own problems, as you wander in search of that lost body part.
The Nose is a silly slice of life, letting players find their own stories within the streets, taking on sidequests and figuring out what all of the other people are up to through the actions they choose to take. Through this, they can shape their own web of friendships and connections in this little digital world, making their own home within it.
Oh yeah, and maybe find their nose, too. Because that should not be off wandering around.
The Nose is available for $2.99 on Steam. For more information on the game and developer Three Percent Games, you can head to the developer’s site or follow them on Instagram, YouTube, and Twitter.
