Released on PC, We. The Revolution is a work of Polyslash studio based in Cracow, Poland – authors of the survival horror game Phantaruk. One source of inspiration for the creators was the warmly received Papers, Please.


The story is the main drive for We. The Revolution. The game is set in the 18th-century Paris during the French Revolution. The main character is a judge of the Revolutionary Tribunal, who judges the revolutionists and their enemies, as well as criminals and ordinary citizens.

During the game you get to make various decisions – including those that determine not only on the course of the protagonist’s career, but also the life of his own family and the fate of his friends. As you progress in the story, your character gains ever greater influence, allowing him to participate in various conspiracies and ultimately to launch a power struggle. Besides, it is not without significance for the story that the protagonist is struggling with gambling and alcohol addiction.


Released for PC, We. the Revolution combines elements of several genres. After accepting a particular case, you have to look through the files and the evidence as well as interview people involved. This way you come into possession of key information needed for reaching the final verdict – either just or one serving your interests.

A special system of intrigues supervises your actions, owing to which your choices do not go without impact on the balance of forces in the capital of France. It is worth mentioning that in-gmae events are generated procedurally, which positively adds to replayability – each time you start a new game, there are different cases waiting to be resolved.

Technical aspects

A characteristic feature of We. The Revolution is its unique graphics design, maintained in Cubism-inspired stylistics, particularly by works of Georges Braque.
