Official Press Release

WHEN INJUSTICE BECOMES LAW, RESISTANCE BECOMES DUTY…

JANUARY 30TH, 2020: ALMOST ONE CENTURY AFTER HITLER BECAME CHANCELLOR, IT IS UP TO YOU TO GO BACK IN TIME AND LEAD A RESISTANCE GROUP THROUGH THE DARKEST OF TIMES.

Berlin / Giebelstadt, Germany, December 12, 2019: Dark times mean fear and risks. The risk to be caught by patrolling National Socialists, looking for people who publicly stand against their point of view. The risk of being beaten up or even killed by the German military because we’re opposing the regime. The risk of losing everything, including our loved ones.

We chose to fight. We founded a secret group, convinced our families and friends, and started to spread the word about the government suppressing and killing people. We share pamphlets, spy on despicable institutions and gather resources to find more supporters for our resistance. Living in fear of being caught every single day. Shaking whenever we feel watched or hear someone knocking at the door at night. This is how we live. This is how we try to survive. Through the darkest of times.

“The history of liberty is a history of resistance.”

– Woodrow Wilson.

Through the Darkest of Times // Release Date Announcement

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, of ordinary people, from Jews to Catholics and Communists to Patriots who simply can’t stand aside. 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.

About Through the Darkest of Times:

Through the Darkest of Times is a historical resistance strategy game. The game’s focus lies on conveying the grim mood 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 whenever possible.
