Albert & Otto
Set in pre-World War II Germany, Albert & Otto seems, at first, to be about a boy on a journey to find his abducted sister. But it is not a story about saving a damsel in distress. It is about grief, anger, and the choices we make under those extreme circumstances. The game takes visual inspiration from Tim Burton’s early stop-motion films as well as Schindler’s List.
Albert & Otto is a game where a boy and his abducted sister’s magical bunny embark on a journey to find Anna. They must work together to overcome the murderous beasts and lethal puzzles blocking their way. Although Albert & Otto at first seems like a journey to save the damsel in distress, it is anything but. We soon learn that our hero might be hiding something from us, or rather, himself.
The player must use both Albert and Otto in creative ways to traverse a haunting world. At the beginning of the story, Albert can shoot and jump, while Otto can fit through tight gaps and hold down power switches. But together, they unlock new skills such as a double jump, which is only available when Otto is in Albert’s bag, levitation, control of electrical currents, and more as the story unfolds.

- Levitate sheep, use them as platforms to swim on, a torch to light a dark cave or as a distraction for wolves while you make a quick escape. (if your stomach can handle it)
