“Some games have you from the start screen. So it is with Over the Alps, a narrative adventure from a team that's had experience at both Inkle and Failbetter, so knows quite a bit about this narrative adventure stuff by now.”
Recommended – Eurogamer

“Over the Alps was penned by alumni from interactive fiction masters Inkle and Failbetter, and it shows in the superb writing. Every conversation sparkles with with wit and charm. The characters are interesting, the setting evocative, and the mystery unpredictable—exactly what you want from a spy thriller.”
PC Gamer

“Over the Alps is one to look out for, especially if gripping, immersive narrative adventures are your cup of tea.”
8/10 – Gamereactor

About This Game

Agent, we have a mission for you: we need you in the Alps. Go undercover, evade the police, discern friend from foe.

Experience two thrilling stories from the minds of Jon Ingold (80 DAYS, HEAVEN'S VAULT) and Harry Tuffs (SUNLESS SKIES, HOUSE OF MANY DOORS), which will see you step back in time to WWII Switzerland’s awe-inspiring Alpine countryside inspired by vintage travel posters to complete your mission.

From a team with a pedigree of experience (FAILBETTER GAMES, INKLE STUDIOS), OVER THE ALPS features two independent stories with an additional third story coming soon. In addition to these free expansions, the new mechanical update, A Test of Character, adds an additional layer of intricacy to the police-pursuit mechanic, offering new ways to talk your way out of tricky situations along the road, depending on the traits you have developed during gameplay.

OVER THE ALPS is available in 15 languages including Chinese (Simplified & Traditional), German, Russian, French and Arabic; features controller support; and is available for both PC and Mac.
