A Sci-Fi-Mystery Adventure Game with handmade scenery. Imagine yourself on a vacation to Europe in the late sixties. Now, picture yourself as a young American scientist; Hans Tannhauser. Yes, that's your name in this scenario. While you're at it, think of Trüberbrook, a remote village in rural, mountain-sloped and densely forested cold-war Germany. Because, that's where you somehow end up after hitting the continent. But who cares, you won the trip in a lottery! Or at least, that’s how it seems.

    If you enjoyed the Kings Quest games and similar titles, you will enjoy Trüberbrook. Hands down, this is a surprising slam dunk. It’s a great story, with twists, humour, problem solving, adventure and mystery. There is also a choice you make at the end, which I suspect provides two endings, so it’s likely to warrant a second play through for this, but you would want to wait a bit between, to appreciate it again.

    Its outlandish narrative packed plenty of thrills and we loved learning more about the mysteries surrounding the quaint Germanic town and its residents. The use of photogrammetry also delivered its own distinctive look and we found the controls to be a treat whether using a controller or mouse and keyboard. You should note that it is over in a flash, though, and suffers from a lack of an inventory system. That being said, we would still urge you to check this one out if you’re a fan of point-and-clicks and sci-fi flicks.

    Standout visuals and an excellent soundtrack set an extraordinary mood, which is sabotaged by streamlined puzzles and a breakneck pace that leave little room for the mystery and characters to come into their own.

    The handmade game scene is impressive, and the background settings of this game are attractive as well. But the story is not good enough, and the puzzles are lacking of creation and fun.

    Reveling in its own eccentricity, Trüberbrook’s quirky characters, stunningly vivid backdrops and engaging dialogue for the most part make up for some flaws in its ambitious but rushed narrative.

    One of the best looking point ‘n’ click adventures ever made, but the unique visuals don’t compensate for illogical puzzles and a weak script.

    Finally something fresh in this genre, unfortunately, the story is quite... dumb. But everything else seems good, so it's worth a try.

    A solid experience with beautiful graphics and nice atmosphere, but nothing to write home about story wise.

    I was really hyped by this game. The visuals are spectacular, but the story is empty and sometimes a non-sense. Not worth $30
