Storyline

At the end of the Second World War, Germany’s fate was decided during the Yalta and Potsdam Conferences: Germany was split among the Allied Forces. Consequently, Berlin was also divided between Soviet Russia (East Berlin) and England, USA, and France (West Berlin).

The split through the heart of the city led to constant tensions, protests, and increasingly higher numbers of East Berliners fleeing the GDR (German Democratic Republic) through West Berlin. So, in 1961, the Soviet Union built the Berlin Wall, making it almost impossible to cross from East to West.      

You too live in East Berlin, but your brother is in the other half of the city. You want to join him, but for that, you must find an ingenious way to escape! You have no idea how, so you’ll start by closely studying the other great escapes.

The game was intertaining. I would say the information about some historical facts was interesting and the tasks were cool. Btw, the tasks could be more challenging (my personal recommendation). I have seen a couple of grammar mistakes in German language, please, check it out. They were not critical thought for the game. Thanks for such an experience! It gave me a new look of my district.
