The Story

It all began in 1938 in Nazi Germany. Young and ambitious Dr. Maximilian Vogel joins Ahnenerbe – the organization operated by SS that dealt with paranormal activities that could help the Third Reich to dominate the world and achieve the goals set by Adolf Hitler. As time progressed and Germany started to lose the war the organization was pressured to come up with a solution that would help them win the war. Working till the end few days before Wewelsburg Castle – their HQ was conquered they made an amazing scientistic discovery. And that’s where the trail ends. Fast forward a few years ago to 1990 to the City of Gorenwille. After a successful raid in the now-abandoned theater led by detectives Marshall Prime and Benjamin Black leading to the arrest of the drug gangs operating there, the city saw a drop in criminality by over 80%. It was rather odd when new series of murders started to ravage the city. After initial investigations, Marshall got a tip from an informant that helped him recover the CIA memorandum. In it, he found out top secret information about operation Paperclip that transformed former scientists from Third Reich to the US and giving them work. One name stood among others – dr. Maximilian Vogel!

Akolyta Updates Announcement


We are sorry for the silence on social media. At this moment we are still polishing our internal demo and we‘re discussing Akolyta‘s future. This includes lots of hours sitting behind the computer, replaying the game over and over again, and redoing certain sections of the game until we believe it‘s the best we can do. This process takes a lot of our time and it‘s not that interesting to share the progress of that. Therefore we decided to pause the new entries to Monthly Briefing and limit the contributions on social media until we solve all the questions and are sure the game is in the best state possible.

This doesn‘t mean Akolyta is going away. We will start updating you as soon as possible we just need to focus more on the development at this moment.

Thank you for all your support. Every like, share, and comment means a lot to us and every interaction makes our day great! We hope to see you soon. Until then stay tuned to our social media, website, and Discord to not miss that moment!

Nice video, nice atmosphere. Only, the sigarette in the asstray. Its way to small and little. When you compair it to the asstray or better even to the coffee cup, then you clearly see that it is so small and little that it is not realistic. Other then that, really well done. Looks awesome your video!
