About the company: Active Fungus Studios
Video games as experience - Active Fungus develops computer games as experiences that entertain as well as immerse our players deeply in the subject matter and provide food for thought. Through computer games, we enable players to take on different perspectives and encourage them to experience and understand conflicts and problems from different angles.We do not only want to entertain with our computer games, but also to draw attention to social issues. The focus is on historical events whose effects can still be felt today. With the alpha release of “Totgeschwiegen” we drew attention to ourselves for the first time in September 2021 – and with success: Several Twitch streamers played our game on release day, and others followed, including well-known names in the German scene such as Gronkh and Simon Krätschmer.
