German publisher Headup and media production studio btf announce today’s mobile release of the award-winning mystery adventure Trüberbrook. The game is available now on the App Store, Google Play and the Huawei AppGallery at a price of $4.99. The game is also part of the Google Play Pass.
The player takes the role of young American physicist Hans Tannhauser who dives into the everyday life of the eponymous village of Trüberbrook, an ageing but beautiful health resort somewhere in the densely forested countryside of West Germany. While actually on a holiday, he quickly finds out there is something strange happening here – and that he didn’t get there by accident…
With its superbly unique visual style, German charm, and a thrilling story of the likes of Twin Peaks and The X-Files, Trüberbrook comes as a modern adventure game appealing to fans of the genre and everyone who likes to delve into a Lynch-esque story and a unique artistic experience. The new Mobile Launch Trailer will give you the last pieces of information:
Trüberbrook is a two-time winner of 2019’s prestigious German Computer Games Awards, it received the ‘Best Staging’ award, and was also crowned with ‘Best German Game 2019’.
Produced by German-based production studio btf (bildundtonfabrik), mostly known for their current Netflix series “How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast)” and the German late night show “Neo Magazin Royale” with Jan Böhmermann, the sceneries are purely handmade, which means: Manufactured using real hands! And fingers. And masses of glue. To give the game its realistic look, they illuminated each scene in a cinematic way with real film-equipment lighting in different moods. These scenes were then subsequently digitized through photogrammetry and refined. Afterwards, the digitized world got further enriched by digital reflections, real-time shadowing, particle effects, and depth of view. Especially on mobile devices, Trüberbrook’s graphics are an absolute exception.
