PROBLEM: only 13% of Kazakhstanis devote their time to daily reading & 25% haven’t read a book in a year. At the same time, the audience of mobile and computer games is 1,5 million and 8,2 million people, more than 50% of the population. Classical literature has a special “dislike” from readers. So, how to excite the modern audience with classical story?

INSIGHT: modern audience likes game content, but there are no NEW genres.

SOLUTION: we recreated classical plots of school program literature in the marvelous aesthetics of video games. We reproduced famous scenes just playing our favorite video games without any actors, decorations, and cameras, using machinima technology. We call new genre Cybervine.

A legendary novel by F. M. Dostoevsky – Crime and Punishment in Half-Life 2
A. N. Ostrovsky’s classic drama – The Storm in The Witcher: Wild Hunt
A. S. Pushkin's novel in verse – Eugene Onegin in GTA V.
N. V. Gogol’s comedy – The Government Inspector in Fallout 4.
A. S. Griboyedov’s satirical play – Woe from Wit in The Sims 4.
