Stalin vs. Martians trailer is the strangest thing ever

If you aren’t familiar with Mezmer Games’ upcoming Stalin vs. Martians, then the trailer posted after the break should give you an idea what to expect if the title doesn’t.

Seriously. We don’t know what to say about it.

Developed by the Russian firm Black Wing Foundation, the RTS features a self-explanatory storyline with gameplay featuring power-ups and “other mechanics not typically seen in the genre”.

According to the website:

“The martians leave spots on the map, plagued by the extraterrestial slimelike substance. That goo improves the enemy units’ stats the way power-ups improve ours. We need to clean the land out of this shit.

“Our game is unique. Trashy and absolutely over-the-top, arthouse kitsch production in its finest. With a good technical basis and some healthy gameplay innovations. Stalin is anything but boring and it looks pretty like schoolgirl with a kitten. Can you ask for more?”

Stalin vs. Martians is expected to arrive on digital download services in April.
