In "Following Copernicus," players embark on a captivating journey to the Renaissance era to uncover the mysteries behind the life and work of Nicolaus Copernicus, engaging in mini-games, solving puzzles, and making pivotal decisions that influence the fate of the world.

Embark on a historical adventure set in the Renaissance period, where you step into the shoes of a curious protagonist visiting the castle of Olsztyn. Your journey begins with an intriguing encounter with the famed astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus. Through engaging conversations with the townsfolk, you delve into the life and contributions of Copernicus, uncovering secrets and gaining insights into his work in astronomy and monetary policy.

As you explore the castle’s grounds, you are introduced to “Silent Step,” a captivating 2D stealth mini-game. Tasked with navigating to Copernicus’s wagons discreetly positioned within the courtyard, you must employ strategy and stealth across four levels, with the wagons hidden in levels 2 and 4. Success in this mini-game unlocks further aspects of the story.

Progressing to the second stage of your adventure, you find yourself in the midst of Copernicus’s scientific endeavors. The creation of an astronomical board sets the scene for a deeper exploration of astronomical instruments and Copernicus’s revolutionary views. This phase is enriched with “The Steward,” a second mini-game that challenges you to expand the castle of Olsztyn and its surroundings. Emulating Copernicus, you must manage resources wisely, engage in trade, and strategically plan the castle’s expansion, aiming for a double enhancement of the structure.

The narrative culminates as you learn about the arrival of the Teutonic Knights’ envoys at the castle, leading to pivotal discussions with Copernicus. This sets the stage for the third mini-game, triggered by the historic dialogue, further immersing you in the intrigue and politics of the era.

This game uniquely blends historical exploration with strategic gameplay, inviting players to step back in time and experience the legacy of Nicolaus Copernicus firsthand. Through interactive dialogues, stealth navigation, resource management, and strategic planning, players are drawn into the Renaissance world, offering both educational insights and entertaining challenges.
