Description

Shtyrlitz is an adventure game and a parody of the popular Soviet television series Seventeen Moments of Spring, itself based on the novel with the same name by Yulian Semyonov. The book and its TV adaptation tells a serious and dramatic story focusing on Colonel Isayev, a Soviet officer sent as an undercover agent to Nazi Germany during World War II. Having assumed the name of Max Otto von Stierlitz, he infiltrates the top ranks of the Nazi foreign intelligence and subsequently foils the enemy's plans.

Rather than basing itself on the actual story, the game follows the tone and the style of the numerous jokes exploiting the series' popularity and its recognizable features (Stierlitz's deductive abilities, deadpan commentary of the narrator, etc.), liberally incorporating elements of the Soviet culture in various epochs, as well as throwing in many anachronisms and cross-references to other popular characters and jokes. The game has a simple interface that uses two mouse buttons for interaction. Inventory-based puzzles as well as dialogues occupy the largest portion of the game, following the tradition of LucasArts' adventures.
