The Darkest Files is a historical investigation and courtroom game based on true crimes of the Nazi era.

"Nothing belongs to the past, everything is still present and can become the future again."
- Fritz Bauer

Play through the untold true story of the Nazi hunter attorneys of the 1950s, in an engaging storyline interweaving personal and political history, with a unique mix of first-person gameplay and beautiful comic art style.
