A German Gruescript drama based on WWII and England, April 28, 2023
by MathBrush

This was an entertaining story with some good puzzles.

You play as a young German person who has received notice that your uncle, who had lived in England since WWII, had died, leaving you his estate. You must travel to his town and collect your inheritance.

With its small town and early puzzles about breaking into a real estate office, I wondered if this would be an Anchorhead clone, but it goes a completely different, more historical direction.

This is a gruescript game, using Robin Johnson's engine, and it's probably the best-coded gruescript game I've seen outside of Robin Johnson's own.

One thing though is that some of the puzzles didn't make much sense to me. Now, I don't speak German very well and some of the puzzles relied on deciphering handwriting and such, but that wasn't too bad because it had some alt text. No, the hard part was with the (major spoiler) (Spoiler - click to show)statues, since the hints say they can be differentiated one from another because one is Big and one is Small, but they all have the exact same description!

So, I liked this game, overall fun, just had some hangups with a couple of puzzles. I like Michael Baltes's game Mariel, too, so it was fun to play more of his work.
