Sci-fi adventure set in ’60s Germany is a beautiful, artsy letdown

Trüberbrook isn’t bad, but it feels like a wedding cake with a couple of tiers missing. Beautiful icing, great craftsmanship on show, but somehow not all there.

Unfortunately, I didn't like Trüberbrook as much as I thought at first. The really charming artstyle and the great scenery are combined with a nice story, but technical weaknesses look out at all corners and edges. Whether it's the sluggish camera, the uninteresting opponent with the soporific voice or puzzles without inspiration. I don't want to punish all of the puzzles here by far, because some are really well guessed and have a crazy solution. However, the few negative examples are all the more important.

It's by no means perfect, but with a heart the size of the mountain it backs up to, Truberbrook is well worth the play for genre purists and those looking for some quirky personality in their games.

A special game that may in nature not be loved by all but between its cast, humor and excellent setting, developer BTF have truly made something special here.

If you enjoyed the Kings Quest games and similar titles, you will enjoy Trüberbrook. Hands down, this is a surprising slam dunk. It's a great story, with twists, humour, problem solving, adventure and mystery. There is also a choice you make at the end, which I suspect provides two endings, so it's likely to warrant a second play through for this, but you would want to wait a bit between, to appreciate it again.

Trüberbrook drew me in with its gorgeous visuals and had me hooked with its story and narrative. Even though the puzzle solving is mostly limited to narration options and simplified environmental inventory puzzles, the various personalities you’ll interact with really helps to make each solution different from the last. The process of how the developers created each environment in real life, then scanned them in, all whilst applying powder to create winter and their own lighting for the various time periods, is all very fascinating and perfectly came together into a spectacular visual treat for your eyes!

Trüberbrook is the kind of game that is entwined with art. The visuals are mesmerizing, stunning and beautiful and the overall atmosphere is very likable and unique. Although the game is not perfect at all and there are numbers of narrative and gameplay issues, it's definitely worth the money you'll spend on it.

Truberbrook is a truly charming point and click adventure game that gets most things right. The issues that are present are more than outweighed by the brilliant visuals, great audio, and enjoyable cast of characters.

Truberbrook is definitely the best looking adventure game to date, and thanks to its wonderful music and sound design, it is a great choice for fans of the genre. That said, issues in story-telling and some weird puzzles prevent it from becoming a new benchmark for adventure games.

If you don't mind some wonky voice-acting, there's plenty of charm to be found in Trüberbrook's engrossing and rustic sci-fi tale.

The handmade game scene is impressive, and the background settings of this game are attractive as well. But the story is not good enough, and the puzzles are lacking of creation and fun.

With sumptuous hand-crafted visuals and a throwback LucasArts approach to puzzle-adventure gaming, Trüberbook is a treat for genre fans. Well, in part anyway. It's a pity that all the goodwill the game generates is drained by an unsatisfying story that doesn't bother to answer even half of the questions it's raised.

While I enjoyed my time in Trüberbrook, I did find the story a bit haphazard. That being said, the story was good enough to keep me invested until the end of the tale and at times, comical. I loved the art style, characters and environments. The whole aesthetic was very pleasing and beautiful to look at. The game does bring some welcome gameplay tweaks to the point and click formula to cut down on pointless trial and error meandering. I liked that a lot, more point and click games should do this and I really appreciated it.

In order to do justice to Trüberbrook, one must distinguish between two or three basic aspects: Story/Gameplay and Presentation. While the presentation is on a very high level thanks to the good voice actors and the unique backdrops, the other two aspects are a bit different. Despite its straightforwardness, the story is relatively interesting, but quickly loses its tension because of the rather average game mechanics. Basically, the studio btf proves that everyone involved understands their craft very well and also solidly applies it to video games, but that they can still use some help when it comes to game mechanics. For fans of point & click adventure games it's definitely a nice title for in between because of the low price. All in all Trüberbrook is not a title you have to have played.

The story of Trüberbrook has an intriguing concept. However, it is resolved too quickly and lacks an impactful revelation that it was seemingly building to. Nevertheless, the voice acting and visuals alone have left me so impressed they eventually became the reasons I continued through the adventure.

WORTH CONSIDERING - I had high hopes for Trüberbrook. With its unique graphics, surreal setting, and sci-fi point-and-click adventure I figured it would be right up my alley. Unfortunately clunky and slow controls combined with so-so puzzles and uninteresting dialog made for a slightly above average affair.

Truberbrook is a very average, obsolete adventure, which by all parameters, except graphics, is inferior to the last Leisure Suit Larry game.

Trüberbrook is a unique, yet flawed, experience. The game’s art design is an incredible feat, and the amount of sheer effort on display from the developer is tremendous; every frame of Trüberbrook demonstrates the incredible work that btf has achieved in creating the distinct scenery. However, the game suffers from some narrative issues, most notably in regards to its awkward pacing, and as a result the entire experience is affected. Fans of point-and-click adventure games should give Trüberbrook a fair try, but other gamers may wish to enter with caution.
