Mobile Release Date Lifted for the Award-winning Mystery Adventure Trüberbrook: September 3rd!

Enjoy this Lynch-esque trip on your mobile very soon

12 August 2020 August 12th, 2020 – German games publisher Headup and developer btfannounce the release date of Trüberbrook for mobile devices, which will be September the 3rd. Take a journey to a mysterious 1960s sci-fi world in which nothing is as it seems.

With its superbly unique visual style, German charm, and a thrilling story of the likes of Twin Peaks and The X-FilesTrüberbrook comes as a modern adventure game appealing to fans of the genre and everyone who likes to delve into a Lynch-esque story and a unique artistic experience. Check out the new teaser trailer:

During the estimated gameplay length of 5 to 8 hours, the player takes the role of young American physicist Hans Tannhauser who, while actually on a holiday, dives into the everyday life of the eponymous village of Trüberbrook, an ageing but beautiful health resort somewhere in the densely forested countryside of West Germany. He quickly finds out he didn’t get there by accident... but to save the world!

Among other awards, Trüberbrook is a two-time winner of 2019’s prestigious German Computer Games Awards. After being nominated in four categories, it received the ‘Best Staging’ award, and was also crowned with ‘Best German Game 2019’.

Trüberbrook's uncommon visual style is its most distinctive feature, especially on mobile devices. Produced by German-based production studio btf (bildundtonfabrik), mostly known for their current Netflix series “How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast)” and the German late night show “Neo Magazin Royale” with Jan Böhmermann, the sceneries are purely handmade, which means: Manufactured using real hands! And fingers. And masses of glue.

Just have a look at what the developers created in the screenshots attached - piece by piece, by the sweat of their eyebrows. In these models every little detail is custom-made!

To give the game its realistic look, they illuminated each scene in a cinematic way with real film-equipment lighting in different moods. These scenes were then subsequently digitized through photogrammetry and refined. Afterwards, the digitized world got further enriched by digital reflections, real-time shadowing, particle effects, and depth of view. Dubbed by professional speakers like Justin Beard and famous German actors Jan Böhmermann, Nora Tschirner, and Dirk von Lowtzow, both the German as well as English version features high-quality and fun voice acting.

Soon, this surreal experience will be available on your mobile device too. Pre-order now on the App Store or pre-register on Google Play. Trüberbrook will also be available on the Huawei AppGallery, the Amazon App Store and in Google Play Pass starting September 3rd.

Dead Age 2 Available Now on Steam and GOG for PC, Mac & Linux

Tactical Zombie Survival Action Returns - Welcome Back to the Apocalypse!

16 July 2020
Headup and developer Silent Dreams are pleased to announce the Early Access release of their tactical zombie survival horror game — Dead Age 2 for PC, Mac and Linux via Steam and GOG. As the sequel to the top-selling and highly rated Dead Age, the game has players returning to the zombie-infested wastelands that once were a thriving civilization, but are now overrun with the living dead.

Dead Age 2 follows a group of determined survivors who have fled to Freedom City in search of a cure for the plague that triggered the zombie apocalypse ten years ago. Join them on their journey for survival as they complete quests, scavenge valuable resources, and build up their base to live long enough to see the world at peace.

Tense turn-based tactical combat against gangs of looters and hordes of brain-devouring monsters can result in death for their character — permanently — while unlocking persistent upgrades can bring hope for the future of the weary group of survivors. With a branching story-line and six unique endings, every decision made counts as the player’s group must befriend other survivors, navigate difficult choices, and maybe even find romance along the way.

Check out all the gripping action in Dead Age 2 by checking out the new launch trailer:

Features include:
  • A Brave New (Open) World: A new feature for the franchise, players can now freely explore the open-world map, limited only by walking distance as well as the number of resources that will keep them alive until they reach one of the 80 destinations. New indoor locations, including desolate hospitals, dangerous bunkers, eerie diners, and resource-rich army supply stores, as well as a return to the barren wilderness, bring a new depth to the struggle for survival.
  • Home, Sweet Home (Base): Dead Age 2 introduces the Advanced Base Management System. Players can increase their chances of survival by assigning tasks to survivors on their team, such as crafting essential items, building and upgrading stations used to improve defense and the quality of life at their base. Growing your base will unlock advanced crafting recipes that will improve craftable items and resource yield.
  • We're All In This Together: As the undead apocalypse progresses, new factions of survivors spring up: the merciless Military, the devious Smugglers, and branches of independent civilians who have banded together to survive. Players must visit these factions’ outposts, take on missions and make quick decisions during events to gain their favor (or gain new enemies) through an all-new Faction Reputation System. Gaining the support of the factions will improve trade relations in order to purchase upgraded faction gear and unlock new endings.
  • Upgraded Combat: A new and improved combat system allows players to strategically place their combatants with new front and back row positioning. With the ability to use up to 24 skills and execute powerful knock-back attacks in battle, players are more powerful than ever as they engage deadly flesh-eating zombies and other survivors hell-bent on taking their resources for themselves. Random events now appear in 3D, adding a terrifying layer to the spine-chilling battles.
Dead Age 2 is available now on Steam (Early Access) and GOG for $17.99, €17,99, £14.99 – in the first days minus a 10% release discount. Owners of Dead Age 1 may even claim an additional 10% loyalty discount on Steam and GOG and save up to 20%.
