About Through the Darkest of Times
Through the Darkest of Times is a historical resistance strategy game. Its focus lies on conveying the grim atmosphere of the period and the very real struggles of average people living in the 3rd Reich. Historical accuracy means that a small group of resistance fighters will not change the outcome of the war, nor will they prevent all of the Nazi’s atrocities, but they will certainly do everything in their power to save as many lives as they can and inhibit the fascist system as best they can.
