Berlin, Germany / Giebelstadt, Germany, August 13th, 2020: Hitler is chancellor and the National Socialists party has taken control of Germany. Experience the struggle of everyday people in their fight against a cruel and unjust regime with only the means they have at their disposal.

All over Germany, small groups of friends and family are trying to oppose the tyranny of the Nazis. Find like-minded companions, form a resistance group, and plan your actions. Make decisions that affect not only yourself but also the lives of the strangers you meet and the safety of your group. Risk losing everything, your freedom, your loved ones, or even your life. Will you put yourself in harm's way to protect the innocent? Will you break during the Gestapo interrogation? Will you lead your fellow resistance fighters Through the Darkest of Times?

Through the Darkest of Times creates a sombre mood. You’ll find out more and more about the cruelty, happening around your group. People disapear without a trace, taken by the official police, sometimes found dead shortly after. There are no good or bad decisions, often you’ll have to choose the lesser of two evils and take the consequences.

Divided into 4 Chapters, the game follows the actual events of the Third Reich era. You will always feel the pressure. Have you been watched during your last operation? Can you really trust that new member of your group? Did you do enough to help that family the other day? Dark times need people with the heads held high, no matter what comes.

Through the Darkest of Times is available for $14.99 / € 14,99 / £ 13,49 on Playstation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

About Through the Darkest of Times:

Through the Darkest of Times is a historical resistance strategy game. Its focus lies on conveying the grim atmosphere of the period and the very real struggles of average people living in the 3rd Reich. Historical accuracy means that a small group of resistance fighters will not change the outcome of the war, nor will they prevent all of the Nazi’s atrocities, but they will certainly do everything in their power to save as many lives as they can and inhibit the fascist system as best they can.

  • Fight for freedom, weaken the regime and lead your resistance group
  • Plan activities, find collaborators and don’t get caught
