** Komkolzgrad also showcases a hearty chunk of Soviet-style DieselPunk.

* BlindIdiotTranslation: One puzzle requires you to make a cocktail. You're told you need lime juice, but all you have is a lemon. It works anyway. Why? The names (and availability) of citrus fruits vary greatly from country to country, and whoever translated the puzzle didn't keep the names consistent between the graphics, text, and audio.

** Komkolzgrad, once a renowned and highly advanced (for it's time, at least) mining, smelting, processing and manufacturing complex, very possibly considered to be the pinnacle of Soviet (Han's) engineering, now stands ''almost'' completely abandoned, save for the tiny mining automatons that still roam between it's rusted walls. No doubt a result of the collapse of the Soviet Union (or some similar in-universe event).

* DesignatedVillain: Kate's boss is consistently trying to talk her out of pursuing Hans Volarberg and inthe second game's cutscenes he's always portrayed as a sillouette in the dark, stuck behind his mean bossy desk. And while he is supposed to be the representation of the consumerist culture Kate's trying to escape from, it's hard to blame him for trying to get her back to New York: not only is she the best lawyer he's got on his crew but also her family is constantly pestering him about her whereabouts (also, while it's never explicitly mentioned, it's clear that should Kate be pronounced missing it's him who'd be held responsible) and the arguments he brings up when he talks to her on the phone (such as her leaving behind her life and ''friends'') all seem pretty legit. For all we know, he might just be geniuinely worried about her.

Kate Walker, a lawyer working for an American toy company, comes to the remote French village of Valadilene to finalize the purchase of the local toy factory. Upon arrival, she learns that the owner of the factory, Anna Voralberg, has recently passed away, but she had an heir, Anna's long-lost brother Hans. She also learns that the factory doesn't produce "toys", but unique "automatons", [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots Ridiculously Human]] {{Clockwork Creature}}s imbued with a soul by their inventor, who is none other than Hans Voralberg. Both intrigued by Hans' eccentric persona and determined to finish the deal, Kate embarks on a surreal journey through all the failed {{utopia}}s of Europe in pursuit of the elusive craftsman, whose life goal is to reach [[TitleDrop Syberia]], a mysterious island where mammoths are rumored to still exist.

** Valadilene was once world-famous for its automaton factory. Since then it seems to have fallen on hard times as the demand for Voralberg automatons decreased and many young people left the town to seek employment elsewhere. Many inhabitants fear that the dead of Anna Voralberg may mean the closedown of the factory and the ultimate end of the town.
** Despite all its grandeur, there appears to be almost no students on the campus of Barrockstadt University. Local stationmaster admits that, while he still remembers days when students would come from all around the world to study in Barrockstadt, he hasnít seen a train come to the station in a very long time.
* DubNameChange: The Russian translation changes one of the cities' names, Komkolzgrad, to Komsomolskgrad [[AsLongAsItSoundsForeign for obvious reasons.]] [[note]]Inside the original game, at least.[[/note]]

* GhostTown: Komkolzgrad was once a Communist industrial complex, but has since been abandoned. The only people left are crazed director of the complex Siergiej Borodin and former astronout turned alkoholic Borys Charow.
