About this gameThe city is plagued by Black Death. Can you, Augustin the bagpiper, give the people some comfort in these hard times?
"Oh du lieber Augustin" is a Viennese folk song that is said to originate from the Great Plague in 1679. This game tells (very loosely) the story of its creation.
Made for MAGS January 2016
There is a French and German translation available. Please run winsetup.exe and select your preferred language.

Is it me or the name of the commenter below keeps changing :
Amélie, Embla, Julia :-D
What makes this MAGS game really shine is it's source of inspiration: The light melody dealing with death is still well-known after centuries, even here where I live. So the interpreter Raeff is standing now in the best Viennese tradition (Schubert, Hofmannsthal, etc.). Bravo!
I would love to see this game fully-voiced at some point with some good singers to fully recreate the medeval musical mood.
