March 11th 2019, Dueren, Germany - At the glamorous gala of the German Video Game Awards 2019 (DCP), Trüberbrook shined in not just one, but two categories. The adventure game was first awarded with ‘Best Staging’, and in the end of the show also was crowned with ‘Best German Game’. This category is every year's most anticipated award of the German gaming industry.
The developers of the game, btf (bildundtonfabrik), achieved the unique look of their game through a complex and lengthy process. In the beginning they built all of its scenes in miniature models – by hand and with masses of glue. In addition, to give the game its realistic look, they illuminated each scene in a cinematic way with real lighting in different moods. These scenes were then subsequently digitized trough photogrammetry and refined. Afterwards, the digitized world got further enriched by reflections, real-time shadowing, particle effects, and depth of view.
After The Inner World won in 2014, Trüberbrook is the second adventure game published by Headup which was awarded with the title of 'Best German Game' at the DCP. On a side note, the two accomplishments for Trüberbrook won btf and Headup a total of €150.000 in prize money. The German Video Game Awards have been part of the German gaming industry since 2009, this year with the biggest total prize pool ever of €590,000.
Trüberbrook is already available on Steam and GOG, console adventurers will start their journey next week. It will be digitally available on the PlayStation®Store, the Nintendo eShop and the Microsoft Store on April 17th. Collectors who would like to buy the retail version, which also includes a 24-page long travel guide, can purchase this adventurous vacation to a 1960's parallel universe two days later on April 19th. Enjoy!
