A revamped love letter to classic video games

Join us, the rebel army, in our most decisive hour!



May 4, 2022, Spain - Operation Highjump: The Fall of Berlin, by the Spanish studio Mansion Games, exceeded its minimum to be financed through Kickstarter in less than 12 hours. Now, a week later, it already triples the figure.

Based on the legends of the Second World War, this 2D game that fuses the frenzy and platforming of classic run&guns with the narrative and puzzles of video-adventures, pays homage to those anonymous heroes who formed the European resistance during WWII to achieve the freedom that we enjoy today (and for which we continue to fight...). With music by Chris Huelsbeck (Turrican), never before seen art by master illustrator Alfonso Azpiri (Lorna), and hand-drawn animations, the game is a revamped love letter to classic video games.

Operation Highjump: The Fall of Berlin

April 20, 1945. After six years of war and devastation, 70 million souls have been silenced. The Third Reich is about to fall defeated by the allied armies. But the final act remains... In a race against time, the OSS (Office of Strategic Services) sends its best man on a suicide mission: Polish resistance lieutenant Joe Kawalski, a man tormented and haunted by his past.

Joe will fight his own war with the Dogs of War command to settle a pending account against those who took everything from him. The objective? Locate and eliminate the main leaders of a fallen empire before they escape justice and take hold of the secrets of Nazi technology to prevent them from falling into the wrong hands.

An epic chase through the ruins of Berlin will lead to a final battle between the forces of good and evil. Its outcome will decide the future of a hidden war waged in the shadows and will sentence the fate of the world.
