Attentat 1942 is a historically-accurate adventure told through the eyes of the World War 2 survivors. Many moral dilemmas and existential struggles await you on your way to discover the troubled past of your family. Written and made by professional historians.

It's 1942 and Reinhard Heydrich, the ruler of the Nazi occupied Czech lands appointed by Hitler, was assassinated. Nazi retaliation was brutal. Your grandpa was among the victims, sent to a concentration camp. But why? What role did he play in the attack? Why didn’t he tell his family? Was he brave or reckless?

Immerse yourself in a story about love, friendship and heroism among the horrors of a world conflict. Confront witnesses, experience the everyday life under Nazi rule and uncover the fate of your family in this award-winning game about World War II.

History made interactive. Attentat 1942 features:

  • deep-branching dialogue, where your choices matter
  • interactive comics and memories, hide resistance leaflets from the Gestapo or flee from a Nazi prison
  • rare digitized film footage and historical items

This was certainly a great a way to learn a few things about the people affected by the events of WWII 



Pretty cool, this would make a great teaching tool in a classroom setting


It is actually used in classrooms all over the world, Czechia as well as numerous American schools and so forth, Charles Games offer EDU packages with a big volume discounts so yea! :)


i don´t exactly know what to say. i didn´t "enjoy" it or would call it a "game". i was deeply touched by the people and what happend to them. its so important not to forget. and this interactive history-lesson is a very good way to keep the memories alive. 

thx alot to everone involved.
