About the Game

“Bookchallenge 2020” is a transmedia puzzle game based on the award-winning novel “Was wir dachten, was wir taten”. As part of a literature festival, school classes had the opportunity to engage with the book in an interactive and immersive format by solving puzzles, following clues and reading between the lines.

The game was commissioned by the Ulla-Hahn-Haus in Monheim and tells its story across various types of media, such as the original novel, audio from the audiobook, analog puzzles, video recordings and an interactive web game.
