Munich-based development team Active Fungus Studios recently announced that its debut title, A Bavarian Tale: Totschlueige, will be released on February 2nd for PC on Steam. In the typical Bavarian crime RPG, the player is placed in the role of a physics reporter who is tasked with investigating a mysterious death in a close-knit village in Bavaria in 1866.

A deceptive provincial nest in Bavaria
As Valantin Schmidt, the player takes the third-person perspective to the seemingly idyllic village of Wolpertshofen in historic Bavaria. The developers describe the initial situation as follows: “Initially, Wolpertshofen seems like a peaceful provincial backwater, but it quickly turns out: Appearances are deceptive. The idyllic village turns out to be a facade behind which a world full of dark secrets and inexplicable events is hidden.” A dark secret hovers over the community of Wolpertshofen. As Valentin, the player must now find out who to trust and who not.
In the crime RPG A Bavarian Tale: Silent, players can freely level up their skills, which are then used in classic pen-and-paper fashion. As a detective, you must find hidden clues and collect clues. Decisions need to be made that will affect the outcome of the investigative work. Is he diplomatic or rather bold? Or does he rely on his stealth or his brawn? The entire game exudes its own unique Bavarian charm – including dialogues. In addition to the Bavarian voice output, there is also the option to play the game in English with a Bavarian accent.
