Through the Darkest of Times, The Best Serious Game 2020, is now available on the Apple Appstore and Google Play!
Leading a resistance group from your mobile device sounds simple enough, right? Organize a protest, paint a few paroles on walls, collect donations… But here’s a promise: It won’t be easy. Because it wasn’t.
They were dark times. 1933, the unforgettable announcement: “Hitler is Chancellor!” has changed the lives of ordinary people, from Jews to Catholics and Communists to Patriots who simply couldn’t stand aside. As we all know, this message brought hardship and injustice for many. Every choice has an impact on your next steps, buying paper is dangerously suspicious and painting paroles on walls could get you arrested or even cost your head. Face the odds and make a stand, make a difference! Fight the Nazi regime, keep your group’s morale up and most important: Survive!
This is the setting of Through the Darkest of Times from Paintbucket Games. You are the leader of a small resistance group in 1933’s Berlin. The 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.
