Truberbrook is a thrilling mystery adventure game set in rural Germany in the late 1960s. The player takes the role of young American physicist Tannhauser, who happens to end up in the eponymous village of Truberbrook, an ageing but beautiful health resort somewhere in the densely forested countryside of West Germany. Tannhauser, while working on his PhD thesis, comes to Truberbrook seeking to crack a tiresome mental block. But something in this town seems strangely spaced out, as the superficial German homeland setting gradually evolves into a puzzling sci-fi mystery. One of the most distinctive features of the game is its unique visual style: The whole scenery and all backdrops will be built as real miniature scale models, captured via photogrammetry, digitally polished and then blended with animated characters, visual effects and set extensions. Gameplay wise, Truberbrook is a somewhat classic point-and click adventure game with a modern approach. Mood and atmosphere of the game are inspired by TV series like Twin Peaks, The X-Files, and True Detective. The game mixes German folklore with a gripping sci-fi storyline, covering universal themes like love, friendship, loyalty, rootlessness, self-discovery and dinosaurs.
