Gottlieb is an atmospheric adventure game based on a myth from the Swiss Alps. It is set in 1669, when the plague was raging over the Bernese Highlands. The game tells the story of Gottlieb Linder, a resident of the mountain village Wengen, whose family suffers from the black death. He starts a desperate journey down into the valley, seeking for help. But on his way down he gets caught in a horrible blizzard and a terrible creature takes up his trail.
