Atmospheric sci-fi mystery Trüberbrook is now available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch.

Winner of the Best German Game Award at the German Video Game Awards, Trüberbrook teleports players into an adventurous vacation set in a 1960s parallel world. American scientist Hans Tannhauser must navigate his way through the rural village of Trüberbrook in cold-war Germany in order to save the world. Handmade visuals give the game a distinct look as characters come to life through a combination of physical miniatures and digitization.

Described as a combination of X-Files and Twin Peaks, the crowd-funded Trüberbrook raised more than $200,000 on Kickstarter within 30 hours. The game boasts full voice acting in both German and English, as well as a moody, atmospheric soundtrack.

The game is available now for $29.99, €29.99, and 24.99 GBP on the Nintendo eShop, Microsoft Store, and PlayStation Store. Physical editions, which include a 24-page travel guide, will be available April 19, 2019.
