Are you ready for an adventure like no other? Imagine if Indiana Jones met a visual novel and got mixed up in a ridiculous cop show. That’s exactly what Hauma is all about! In this thrilling game, developed by SenAm Games and published by Assemble Entertainment, you will embark on a journey filled with twists and turns that will keep you on the edge of your seat.


You play as Judith, a former detective and champion boxer who is determined to solve the case her grandfather was working on before he passed away. The game is presented in a cool 2D comic book-style, which adds to its unique charm. You’ll use your investigative skills to gather clues and solve puzzles, just like a real detective!

But here’s where things get really interesting. As you progress through the game, you’ll find yourself in unexpected situations. Picture this: you’re exploring a tunnel under the ruins of a Nazi temple in Munich, searching for a mysterious artifact called the MacGuffin. This artifact turns out to be none other than a shin bone carved with the recipe for an eternal life drink! And if that wasn’t enough, it was stolen by nuns who took it to Bavaria, where they mysteriously became pregnant. Talk about wild!


Hauma takes inspiration from Indiana Jones movies, so expect plenty of action-packed moments and thrilling adventures. Your main source of information is your grandfather’s journal, which contains valuable research notes and diagrams. Whenever you discover something new, be sure to jot it down in your mind palace (a fancy term for your inventory), where it will transform into useful clues.

The game also features different locations that are visually stunning. Each scene has vibrant colors and captures the essence of a noir comic book style perfectly. And don’t worry about missing out on dialogue because Hauma is fully voiced, bringing the characters to life.

While Hauma may seem complex at times, with its puzzles and connections, it also offers solutions for those who prefer a more straightforward approach. If you find yourself stuck, the game provides hints and brute force options to help you progress. However, be aware of occasional bugs that might require you to leave and re-enter a room to interact with objects.

Now, let’s talk about the historical and cultural aspects of the game. Hauma is set in Bavaria’s capital city and offers a fascinating glimpse into its past. You’ll encounter references to Nazis in the storyline, but don’t worry - as Judith, a former boxing champion, you’ll have the opportunity to punch some Nazis and save the day!

Hauma is an entertaining game that will keep you hooked from start to finish. It may have its quirks and moments of confusion, but it’s all part of the fun! So get ready for an unforgettable adventure filled with mystery, action, and unexpected twists.
