Maniacs

Maniacs is a 3rd-person action-adventure for PC, developed in Unreal Engine 4.

Players take on the role of the young and impressionable Tina in a fictional snapshot of West Berlin in 1968, as state violence leads to radicalization within the student protest movement.

During the game, players explore a district of the city, a so-called Kiez, in the 60s, interacting with characters and taking on missions while avoiding the suspicion of state authorities keeping a close eye on the student movement. To succeed, players must plan ahead and manage their resources before acting. They decide how Tina navigates – with discretion or bombast – and ultimately affect her involvement with a group of protesters that are growing more violent by the day. Thanks to Tina’s instant camera and journal, player can record their journey with key photographs and scribbled thoughts.

A prototype of the game was produced in 2021 with the help of the Film and Media Fund NRW (Film- und Medienstiftung NRW).
