In Portet-sur-Garonne, a municipality south of Toulouse, lies the stylish villa of the notorious godfather. A mole helps us in our endeavour to steal the godfather’s gold. But first we have to outwit the doorman to get into the building. From then on, events come thick and fast. A dangerous mission! Gangsters, guns and whiskey. The Don doesn’t seem to have just one skeleton in his closet.

I like experiences that start as soon as the doorbell rings! The kind you often find in Spain or Greece. You enter the venue and are in your adventure from the very first second. Without overly long stories about what’s coming next or agonisingly long introductions – I know you’ve already played a lot. That’s why I’ll keep it short. And then the whole litany comes again anyway. Nothing over 1.80, no violence, only use everything once, press the directional lock twice, and so on.

La Traction’s THE GODFATHER’S BETRAYAL and DARK TATTOO by Projet Dédale were the only two experiences on our trip to Toulouse where we were right in the game.

The Goodfather’s Betrayal has everything you need for an immersive mafia adventure. Great actors, a superbly furnished, stylish mansion as the setting for our mission, lots of action and well-timed interactions with the characters, interesting twists, and turns, as well as a good dash of (black) humour. Varied, entertaining puzzles and tasks, remarkable mechanics.

For me this game, created by a true enthusiast, and run with heart and soul, has absolutely Terpeca levels, and I hope that one day it will be playable in English.
