Get the slav jank mug.
A sometimes derogatory, sometimes celebratory term used for a video game typically from the former Soviet Union or a Warsaw Pact nation that has a surreal atmosphere, notably bad (or no) support for non Slavic languages, and is littered with bugs, flaws, or defects.
It's not just limited to HROT anymore: Cyberpunk 2077 and Dying Light 2 have joined the ranks of notable launches bogged with problems, renewing interest in the term "slav jank" as a warning.
