About the game
Berlin, January 1933. “Adolf Hitler is chancellor!” We all know where
that message will lead to
Dark times mean fear and risks. The risk to be caught by patrolling
National Socialists, looking for people who publicly stand against their
point of view. The risk of being beaten up or even killed by the German
military because we‘re opposing the regime. The risk of losing
everything, including our loved ones. This is how we live. This is how
we try to survive. Through the darkest of times.
Plan. Act. Survive.
You are the leader of a small resistance group in 1933’s Berlin, of
ordinary people, from Jews to Catholics and Communists to Patriots who
simply can’t stand aside. Your goal is to deal small blows to the regime
– dropping leaflets to spread awareness about what the Nazis are really
up to among the people, painting messages on walls, sabotaging,
gathering information and recruiting more followers. And all of that
while staying undercover – if the regime’s forces learn about your
group, the life of each member is in grave danger.
Through the Darkest of Times is a historical resistance strategy game,
focusing on conveying the somber mood of the period and the very real
struggles of average people living in the 3rd Reich. Historical accuracy
means that your small group of resistance fighters will not change the
outcome of the war, nor will you prevent all of the Nazi’s atrocities,
but you can certainly do everything in your power to save as many lives
as you can and oppose the fascist system wherever possible.
In hindsight, it’s easy to say people of Germany should have fought the
Nazi regime early on. Through the Darkest of Times puts you in charge of
a group of resistance fighters who tried to do exactly that. It will be
up to you to decide how you will react to the events happening around
you. Will you take a stand against injustice or try to save your own
skin to fight another day?
