Explore Gogol’s Surrealist Work in The Nose

Nikolai Gogol was a dramatist with a taste for the absurd, bizarre and grotesque. One of his works, The Nose, has now been adapted into video game format by Three Percent Games.

The story and game begin when Major Kovalev wakes only to find that his nose has up and disappeared from his face (starting a life of its own in the process). Players go on a journey through bizarre landscapes in search of the nose.

The Nose features an open world St. Petersburg-like city, unusual visuals and side missions alongside the main story thread. It’s available for $2.99 on Steam.
