Attentat 1942 Uses Interactive Comics To Immerse Players In WWII History


Attentat 1942 looks to immerse the player in what it felt like to live during the horrifying days of World War II, doing so through interactive comics that let players decide how to act in some very troubling times.


Players will be acting as a man whose grandfather was mysteriously arrested just after Reinhard Heydrich, one of the chief architects of the Holocaust, was assassinated. Through a series of interviews (written and created by historians), bits of historical footage, interactive graphic novel segments, and mini games, players will discover the role, good or bad, that their grandfather played in events during the war.

Attentat 1942 looks to give players a sense of the kinds of motivations, needs, and horrific events of the time through its interactive and witnessed elements, using the connection players create through their decisions to have them feel what it was like to live in these times.


Attentat 1942 is available now on Steam.
