EXIT – The Trial of the Griffin

EXIT: The Trial of the Griffin is a puzzle adventure for iOS, Android, and Steam, based on the award-winning EXIT – The Game® board game series.

The second digital adaptation of the series invites players to the legendary Greifenstein castle, located deep in the German highlands known as the ‘Harz’. A mystery surrounding the countess, which had not been seen for years, awaits them.

Various special items can be used to contact the ghosts that haunt the stone halls of Greifenstein. The countess’ secrets must be uncovered by solving logical puzzles with a supernatural touch. Each of the castle’s distinct rooms offers a unique and dense atmosphere for players to immerse themselves in. Keeping in tradition with the board games, everything in and around the game can be part of the puzzles.

My contribution

I was one of three, later two, programmers responsible for this project. I implemented various puzzle mechanics and systems like player input and cutscene sequences while making sure everything worked on all target platforms (Android, iOS, macOS, PC/Steam). I was also partially responsible for the integration of art assets into the project.
