A Stroke of Fate is an interactive adventure/detective story framed in authentic surroundings of the fascist Germany in the 1940s. A gamer has a unique opportunity - to conduct a compelling investigation of the most mysterious secret veiled by the 20th century - Adolf Hitler's preterm death.

If you had the chance to change history would you? Could you?

In Germany hurtling towards the global catastrophe in the second world war, you step into the murky arena of international espionage as you try to alter the course of history and try and achieve what so many failed: the assassination of Adolf Hitler.

As a special agent trained in the latest sabotage techniques you have to infiltrate Hitler's inner circle and avoid the ever-watchful eyes of the ever-dangerous Gestapo. And they will be watching you, they always are...

A Stroke of Fate transports you into the world of the 1940s, mixing with the most hated figures in European history; Himmler, Goebbels, Muller and Hitler himself. While you are there though, do you have what it takes to achieve the impossible task that eluded so many others, the final solution to the Hitler problem?

In "A Stroke of Fate" there are very many unique features, characteristic to the period of time the events of the game take place. The fashion, the interiors, the manners of people – it's all there. The developers had analyzed a lot of archive documents and tried to make the game as historically credible as possible. Among the features of the old times are, of course, the cars – very important attributes of the wartime.


Key features:

  • Compelling pseudo-historical plot;
  • Ingenious brainteasers and quests to reflect German peculiarities of the 1940s;
  • Realistic graphics;
  • Authentic places and historically derived personalities: Muller, Goebbels, and Hitler;
  • You can walk along the Secret Police building and Hitler’s private study
