Maniacs is a 3rd-person stealth-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.
The game tells a story about how violence begets violence during a time period in German history that has not been covered by other games so far.
