English majors who are also gamers can rejoice! Franz Kafka’s weird and intriguing works of literature are heading to a video game setting.  Indie developer Denis Galanin, known as “mif2000,” has transformed The CastleThe MetamorphosisAmerika and a few other works from Kafka into The Franz Kafka Videogame, due out for PC, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android in 2014.

If you are worried that your favorite tales of anxiety, bureaucracy, daddy issues and a little bit of magic are in the wrong hands, don’t fret. Mif2000 was previously responsible for translating William Shakespeare’s Hamlet into a game that received dozens of respectable accolades.

The Franz Kafka Videogame follows the main character, K, after he gets a new job that requires traveling to a distant land. And then things get weird, just as Kafka always intended.
