Attentat 1942 is an unusual adventure game released for PC. The project is being developed by Prague’s Charles University, supported by historians and employees of Czech Academy of Sciences.
The action of the game takes place in Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia. The famed assassination attempt that eventually took the life of Reinhardt Heydrich has ended with a major crackdown that has led the Germans to arrest the grandfather of the protagonist. The man decides to find him and learn about the role his relative has played in the whole operation, as it seems like the arrest wasn’t random.
Attentat 1942 attempts to deliver a fully-fledged adventure game experience. Our actions include getting information from numerous conversations and solving demanding minigames. The game is characteristic for its historical value – the screenplay was written thanks to thorough input from a team of professional historians, while the game is complemented with rare audio recordings. As a result, we are left with a rich historical source that recreates the atmosphere of that period in Czech history.
The game mixes a number of narrative techniques into a unified experience. The individual events are introduced through a comic book recap, reinforced by the aforementioned audio recordings and role-play scenes featuring real actors that assume the roles of the interrogated witnesses.
