Oh du lieber Augustin

The city is plagued by Black Death. Can you, Augustin the bagpiper, give the people some comfort in these hard times?






"Oh du lieber Augustin" ("Oh you dear Augustin") is a popular Viennese folk song that is said to originate from the Great Plague in 1679. This game tells (very loosely) the story of its creation.

I played and finished it. There's a nice number of puzzles with a wide range of variety for such a short game. The graphics and animations are impressive.

Well done!

Almost a month after the initial release there is a new updated version of the game.

It features a few additional animations and fixes as well as a French and German translation.

Loma from the Adventure-Treff forum wrote an interesting blog post about adventure games with references to Austria and Austrian history. It also mentions "Oh du lieber Augustin".
