The resistance needs you! All over National Socialist Germany, small groups of friends and family were trying to oppose a regime they realized was cruel, unjust and outright evil. In doing so, they risked losing everything, their freedom, their loved ones and their lives. Through the Darkest of Times follows such a group as they work towards helping those in need, undermining the Nazi’s institutions and spreading the word in Europe and the world. Lead them through the bleak dystopia that was the 3rd Reich and learn how they lived and fought for survival. Hear their stories and never forget.

The group’s main goal is to survive and along the way, they will help those in need and spread information about the regime’s bleak dealings. You will need to collect donations, gain supporters and sabotage the fascist regime’s affairs whenever and wherever you can.

About Through the Darkest of Times:
Through the Darkest of Times is a historical resistance strategy game. Its focus lies on conveying the grim atmosphere of the period and the very real struggles of average people living in the 3rd Reich. Historical accuracy means that a small group of resistance fighters will not change the outcome of the war, nor will they prevent all of the Nazi’s atrocities, but they will certainly do everything in their power to save as many lives as they can and inhibit the fascist system as best they can.
