However, With This is The Zodiac Speaking we enter a completely new field.’ – said Michal Gembicki, Joint-CEO in Klabater – ‘We try our best to publish games that somehow relate to human condition in general but also focus on the fate of concrete individuals. 1970’s in USA was a period of radical social unrest and divisions, it is an ideal background for a compelling and mature story.’
