  • Summary: A sci-fi adventure game in 1960s parallel universe. Assume the role of a young American scientist, Hans Tannhauser who visits a remote village in rural Germany -- or at least, that’s how it seems. But don't fear, instead of getting some rest, you could find yourself having to save the world.

    If I had to simply think of one word to describe Truberbrook, it would be charming. It’s clear that it was crafted as a labor of love, and the impressiveness with its visual style is beyond remarkable. Games like Truberbrook bring back a flood of memories to my favorite point and click adventures from my childhood, and I can easily add this to my list of my favorites in the genre. While it’s not perfect, it’s remarkable, memorable and pleasure to experience.

    Trüberbrook is a graphic adventure made with a lot of care and work. It manages to catch you and immerse you in its gloomy world, where your observation and ingenuity are your best weapons. The story is elaborate but with a premature ending that leaves you wanting more.

    If you’re looking for something slightly different in tone, with a great story, some slow paced thoughtful gameplay and visuals that look like a piece of art then take a trip to Trüberbrook.

    I had a lot of fun with a genre I actually don’t normally care for. That’s why I think so highly of the game length. It all depends on how fast you can solve the puzzles. It’s not too hard nor too easy. It had just the right amount of difficulty. The voice acting was done quite well too, and I admire the goofy lines. I played it almost a complete second time and I was still having a good time even though I knew all of the solutions. The story could really have used some tweaks but it didn’t ruin it. I wasn’t blown away but that’s not always a requirement for me to enjoy something that was made extremely well.

    Any issues with Truberbrook are more than outweighed by the brilliant visuals, great audio, and enjoyable cast of characters.

    Despite the game's good presence, the lack of a coherent story makes it far from being considered an outstanding indie.

    Truberbrook effortlessly stands out on the merits of its uniquely gorgeous presentation, its stellar voice work, and its overall decent writing. Unfortunately, the whole ordeal religiously falters as far as its core functionality and its puzzle design is concerned. The end result makes for an adventure that seemingly looks like nothing else, but largely plays like a poor imitation of any given point-and-click game worth its salt.

Despite feeling easy there's plenty of creativity in the puzzles and it never made me feel frustrated during my journey. Point-and-click adventures are great, Truberbrook even got my girlfriend to sit with me, and play along even in a 1 player affair we can share in the enjoyment. This along without overly complex problem solving we both felt at home because I often find games in this genre to contain a story that stays interesting from start to finish and Truberbrook definitely does contain a story that stays interesting throughout but this game does also feature a few setbacks along the way. Which may stop it from entering as the best games from within the genre will. Thankfully in the end it gets slightly more right than wrong and without a doubt something it gets extremely right is its art, and overall audio and visual presentation. This added immersiveness is a good save, because it helps offset a level of immersiveness that’s lost due to the game’s few issues we have already discussed. In terms of the gameplay this game features the usual point-and-click formula with plenty of fun and puzzles to solve during the story. Truberbrook isn’t a bad game, it's just priced relatively high for what is at it's core. The difficulty may have been intentionally left easier to appeal to a broader audience. What's here is worth plying especially if you're a fan of the genre. You may just want to wait on a sale to get in at a more competitive price point if this isn't your usual cup of tea. Expand
