"Wolpertshofen – A village that sits between idyll and a den of iniquity. In A Bavarian Tale: Totgeschwiegen, players are transported back to a historical Bavaria in 1866 as the surveyor Valentin Schmidt. At first, Wolpertshofen seems like a peaceful, provincial village, but it soon becomes clear that appearances are deceiving. The idyllic village turns into a facade behind which a world full of dark secrets and inexplicable events are hidden. The residents are on edge, and a dark secret hovers over the community. Valentin must figure out who he can trust, who will lead him on a false trial, and be able to protect himself from those who want to stop him from completing his job with force."

"Where story and gameplay go hand-in-hand. Players are completely free to decide which skills they want to level up. These are used in the classic pen&paper manner via skill checks. With the role of the detective, the goal is to find hidden clues and collect valuable evidence that will help to progress the story.  Within the story of A Bavarian Tale: Totgeschwiegen, tricky decisions have to be made which can influence the investigation, one way or another. The challenges Valentin must face can be approached in different ways. Does he turn on the charm during an interrogation? Will he try to find a diplomatic solution to get his information? Or does he simply let evidence slip away on the sly? In a tricky situation, Valentin can also defend himself against adversaries with his strength… Or he takes his head between his legs."
