How Video Games Showcase Ukraine’s Heritage and Traditions

Ukrainian history is reaching for large-scale events that may become a promising background for video games. Except for the Chornobyl catastrophe, which is often stereotypically one of the most associated with our country, there are also plenty of remarkable events like the Battle of the Dnipro.

Post-apocalyptic motives have been traditionally representing Ukraine in gamę for many years — and Stalker, Chernobylight, and Call of Duty are noticeable examples of that. However, the image of Ukraine is not only limited to such a gloomy aesthetic.

Also, Ukrainian tourist attractions as political confrontations are brightly represented in political thrillers and historical simulators. Ukrainian senses and context are diverse — and the thriving video games industry perfectly gets that.

UKRAINE IN FLAMES project is created by Ukraine Crisis Media Center and NGO “Euroatlantic Course”. We are aiming at searching a loud support for Ukraine in the war started by Russia on the 24th of February 2022.
