A serious game for serious players.
When I think about point-and-click adventure games, my mind tends to lead me to games like Sam and Max, Simon the Sorcerer, Broken Sword, and Day of the Tentacle. These are all whacky and colourful fictional games with vivid characters and loads of humour. What I don’t tend to imagine when the subject comes up is historical accuracy, a focus on realism, and a plot based on actual historical events. It is safe to say that A Stroke of Fate: Operation Valkyrie is a game that has shattered all my preconceived notions of what a point-and-click game should be.
