Ludmilla is is a videogame based on the lost cosmonauts theory. A space-age forbidden story to discover in a oniric journey about truth and loneliness.
The story behind the game: In the 1961 two Italian radio amateur operators were sounding out frequencies coming from the celestial sphere. They listened to a female voice that seemed desperately asking for help. After a few seconds the voice suddenly stopped, replaced by an absolute silence. The two radio operators just had the time to record on a tape those few words pronounced by an unknown Soviet cosmonaut. This was the beginning of the lost cosmonauts story: pioneers put into orbit during the feverish space race. A group of cosmonauts chosen for a extreme and unknown journey
