The shadow of war looms over Europe in 1936.

Hitler’s election and rise to power brings with it unprecedented aggression. Yet as the military and political machine prepare for conflict, there are those in Germany who understand he must be stopped at all costs. These conspirators were hunted by the Gestapo. Some were part of the military or intelligence service. Others were civilians. Collectively they were known as the Black Orchestra. They plotted to assassinate Hitler and overthrow the Nazi regime.

In the game, each player is a member of the Black Orchestra. Together you work toward your goal, trying to set in motion a series of events through daring actions that will lead to Hitler’s death. You must do this by gaining enough motivation and courage to go through with the deed without drawing too much suspicion to yourself and your compatriots.

This is not a task for the faint of heart. But if you succeed, you'll save millions of lives by ending the war early or perhaps before it begins in full!

Complete Show Notes continue after the break.
