“I love the unique charm of Trüberbrook. The careful observer finds several Sci-Fi references everywhere [...]. At the same time, there´s a lot of Village-Charm and 60s flair. That's simply enough to take over my heart!”

“Ultimately, Trüberbrook is a charming journey through a wonderfully well-realized 1960s Germany. Its accessible and streamlined mechanics are simple yet effective, offering an experience that anyone can jump into.”

Love this game

I loved it. Some of it was not so easy and I liked that. There were some things I could have done without. Some of the dialogue was a bit long winded and I think you should have the option to skip although I know some parts gave clues. All in all a great game, great graphics, and no real ticks or issues in the game. Cant wait to see what else this team of gamers come up with.

Good Fun!

Game holds interest. Had no glitches or chashes. Puzzles are, for the most part, logical. Has 2 possible endings. Played on a Macbook pro 16inch.

Unplayable in current version

Maybe it's just the current version of the game, but it is nearly impossible to play. Clicking on various locations or objects causes a glitch that sends you wandering off in the opposite direction. Even when your character does move where you actually want them to go , the controls are rather clunky. Hopeful that updates will arive soon to fix these bugs.
