The year is 1959. For the past five years the U.S.S.R. has been shooting a wide range of adorable creatures into space as a means to test their newly developed rocket technology. However, it has recently gotten to the point at which the Soviet scientists can no longer benefit from this type of experiment; unless, of course, their goal is to gauge the effects of zero-gravity on cruelty. The Soviets know that they need to launch a manned mission if they wish to expand their knowledge of the cosmos and be the first to set foot on the Earth’s celestial neighbors – a feat that would undoubtedly establish the U.S.S.R. as the most technologically superior nation on the planet. Unfortunately for the Soviet space program, their reputation precedes them. With only about a 10% chance that their rockets won’t fall right out of the sky, volunteers for such a mission are nowhere to be found.
As it becomes more and more apparent that knowledge and exploration of the solar system is a means to the Soviet’s political end, the Kremlin decides to take matters into their own hands. They target a small Siberian potato farming community with a long and proud tradition of lethargic mediocrity, and proceed to kidnap them with the intention of blasting them haphazardly into space under the guise of a shoddy operation known as the Communist Cosmonaut Correspondence Program (CCCP).
You, Flipski, are among these chosen few. Flipski and his comrades embark on an epic journey of espionage, space travel, and spastic debauchery in this tongue-in-cheek retro space adventure.
