You are a Wermacht solider in 1940 who opposed the Third Reich.
Incarcerated by the SS, you must escape the procedurally-generated
dungeon with the assistance of the German resistance using environmental
clues to avoid detection by guards. Every playthrough is different.
In Überläufer. you play a Wehrmacht soldier who has defected and turned
against the Third Reich. You must escape your incarceration by
completing random objectives that involve collecting, destroying or
photographing various things in the dungeon.
With limited health, you need to make wise choices. Sound and light play a key role in escaping. Listen for approaching guards, avoid lit areas which make it easier for you to be spotted as well as improve enemies aim. Take guards out silently when possible to avoid attracting the SS and use environmental hazards to your advantage. Stealth mechanics including distraction and hiding spots can be used to survive long enough to escape.
Each time you play, the dungeon layout changes as well as your objectives and soldiers backstory. Uncover letters from a former prisoner to discover his story as well as real leaflets and dossiers from the German and Austrian resistance in World War 2.
This rogue-like game is a love letter to the original WW2 Dungeon Crawlers on the Apple II and Commodore 64.
