What is the game about?

Through the Darkest of Times (TtDoT) is a strategy game, that lets you play a resistance group in Berlin during the Nazi-time. You play a resistance leader and plan and execute actions to win supporters and weaken the regime. You need to balance the morale of your members, get resources to execute actions and avoid getting caught by the Gestapo. The game plays in turns and chapters. Every turn is one week and every chapter is covering a specific period of the Third Reich: Seizure of Power (1933), Peak (1936), War (1940/1941), Collapse (1944/1945).

Can I play a specific resistance group like the White Rose?

Your character and the group members are fictional and the game creates them procedurallyon each playthrough, giving them different personalities, abilities and views. While you aren't playing as a specific historical organization, there were a number of groups that were very similar to the ones in the game, such as the Schulze-Boysen-Harnack group or the one around Herbert Baum.

Can I change history?

We are convinced, that history is an extraction of stories that people experience and create with their thoughts, words and deeds. So yes, you can. And in the game.
