Trüberbrook announced - a visually stunning adventure game

20 October 2017


In cooperation with the German production company btf, Headup Games announces the atmospheric mystery adventure game Trüberbrook. Truber-what? Well, imagine “Twin Peaks” meeting “The X-Files”, but in rural cold-war Germany.

During the estimated gameplay length of 7 to 10 hours, the player takes the role of young American physicist Hans Tannhauser, who, while actually on a holiday, dives into the everyday life of the mysterious village of Trüberbrook – just to find out he hadn’t got there by accident. He’s here to save the world!

This morning, Trüberbrook's Kickstarter campaign went live, so we appreciate any postings on social networks and gaming websites about this unique project.

Trüberbrook's producers btf is mostly known for their infamous late-night show “Neo Magazin Royale” in German TV with Jan Böhmermann. The game was co-funded by the Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg and will be published by Headup Games. The release is scheduled for late 2018 for Windows, Mac, Linux (all DRM free & via Steam), PlayStation®4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch in both English and German versions.

In order to immerse the player to the fullest, the team chose to physically build the world we envisioned, resulting in a unique, distinct visual style. All of our scenic sets are genuinely handmade. 'Handmade' as in: 'Manufactured using real hands! And fingers! Not the most efficient way of doing things, but we're loving it! Every little detail is custom built, meticulously crafted, piece by piece, painted, arranged, rearranged and put into boxes in between. If you were wondering...yes, there is glue involved. Lots of glue!
