OverviewOverview

Over The Alps is an adventure with intrigue and espionage set in 1939 Switzerland. Designed to look like retro photographs. The story unfolds as you select stamps to indicate how your character should approach interactions. Discover a secret history in a classic story of espionage, double-crosses and adventure. Avoid leaving clues as you go to avoid being caught by the Swiss Police.

Drawing on writing talent from 80 Days and taking a similar approach to its branching narrative as Bury Me My Love, you play a pivotal role in the unfolding 60,000-word drama. But like those games, this is more than choose-your-own-adventure; your decisions influence each chapter's outcome but not always in ways you expected.
