Handmade Mystery Game “Trüberbrook” Launches Kickstarter

German production company btf and publisher Headup Games launched a Kickstarter campaign today for their upcoming game, titled Trüberbrook.

According to Headup Games, Trüberbrook is an atmospheric sci-fi mystery adventure game set in rural 1960s Germany. Taking on the role of a 20-something American student named Hans Tannhauser, players will get to know the residents of Trüberbrook and eventually save the world. The game is estimated to be between 7-10 hours long and aims to immerse players with its handmade miniature set.

The Kickstarter campaign already passed its halfway point in funding, with pledges totaling around $60,000 (52,000 euros) in less than 24 hours. The goal is set at $93,000 (80,000 euros), and the campaign will run until Dec 14. Those who pledge at least $29 (25 euros) will get a digital version of the game for Windows, Mac, Linux, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, or Switch. Those who prefer to play their games in mobile will have to wait a little bit – the campaign only teased this version as a “likely” port.
