About Operation Highjump: The Fall of Berlin 

April 20, 1945. After six years of war and devastation, 70 million souls have been silenced. The Third Reich is about to be defeated by the Allied armies. But the final act still remains…

In a race against time, the OSS (Office of Strategic Services) sends its best man on a suicide mission: Polish resistance lieutenant Joe Kawalski, a man tormented and haunted by his past. Joe will fight his own war with the Dogs of War commandos to settle a score against those who took everything from him.

The objective? Locate and eliminate the main hierarchs of a fallen empire before they escape justice and to seize the secrets of Nazi technology to prevent them from falling into the wrong hands.

An epic chase through the ruins of Berlin will lead to a final duel between the forces of good and evil. Its outcome will decide a hidden war waged in the shadows and will sentence the fate of the world.

Combining 2D shooter, platformer and adventure genres with a powerful story, retro aesthetics and a beautifully crafted fusion of pixel-art and illustration based on real life reference of the time, Operation Highjump: The Fall of Berlin aims to revive the illusion of classic video games of the genre but using modern development tools and a fresh perspective. Add an epic soundtrack composed by Chris Huelsbeck and original, unpublished art from master illustrator Alfonso Azpiri to the mix and Operation Highjump: The Fall of Berlin is shaping up to be the complete package!

Operation Highjump:The Fall of Berlin is part of PlayStation®Talents, the Sony Interactive Entertainment España (SIE España) programme that helps the diffusion and consolidation of indie studios in the Spanish videogame sector, through mentoring in business, marketing, technical development and advertising.

The Operation Highjump: The Fall of Berlin Kickstarter campaign will begin on 26th April, 2022. Follow the progress and show your support on the Kickstarter Campaign page
