About This Game

The Sorrows of Young Werther, was written by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe in 1774.
Loved by artists and emperors, it shows the inner struggle of a deeply romantic man.

Or at least that's what I used to think...

Come with us on this interactive visual novel to see another version of this legendary story.
Was young Werther really a romantic? Or was he just a man with a death wish?
How deeply did he really love his friend Wilhelm? Maybe his letters hide some clues...
Did he even loved Charlotte? Or did he just love the idea of an unrequited love?

For all these questions and more, Mad Cream Games presents you and overloading artistic experience, full of brush strokes and ink spots, where Chopin played the sax and Mozart the guitar, where love turns into hate, and pity into madness:

With this game we want to celebrate the mastery and abilities from the painters and musicians that came before us, presenting their work in a new original and respectful way.
