Trüberbrook, out now for PS4 & Switch, lets you solve a mystery
And rewrite history?
Are you looking for some excitement in your rather mundane life? Well good news point-and-click adventure game Trüberbrook has just released for the PlayStation 4 and the Nintendo Switch! The game is available both physically and digitally for $29.99. Act fast, though - Switch digital purchasers get an early bird discount . Retail copies are also available, at the same price point for PS4 and $39.99 for the Switch.
With an amazing art style and some head-scratching puzzles, "Trüberbrook tells the story of young American physicist Tannhauser, who happens to end up in the eponymous village of Trüberbrook, an ageing yet beautiful health resort somewhere in the densely forested countryside of West Germany. Tannhauser, while working on his PhD thesis, comes to Trüberbrook hoping to alleviate 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."

Gameplay-wise, Trüberbrook is a somewhat classic point-and click adventure game with a modern approach. The mood and the atmosphere of the game is inspired by TV series like 'Twin Peaks', 'The X-Files' and 'True Detective'.
