Together with the production company btf, also located in Germany, 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!
Today, November 14th (starting 10am GMT), Trüberbrooks Kickstarter campaign will go live; ending on 14th December. We appreciate any postings on social networks and gaming websites about this unique project. Please also watch and share the brand new Kickstarter trailer
Trüberbrook is produced by btf from Germany, 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 an 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!’
Our backers can look forward to some great hand-picked rewards, like a limited, kickstarter-exclusive boxed edition filled with goodies as well as the opportunity to spice up your home with set pieces from the actual game. You may even have your portrait drawn by our character designer and become a part of the village’s ancestral gallery! But first and foremost, our backers can expect an outstanding game in exchange for their support!
