Brubaker is an icon-driven adventure. An aged former CIA agent, you found your own agency and accept a simple mission to transport a barrel of plutonium to another location. As you fly over the Bermuda Triangle, your plane is shot and you are stranded in a strange world.
The game has a score and several, partially unforeseeable, unwinnable and deadly situations. Like the previous Byteriders adventures, the writing is humorous, although this time more cynical than absurd. It was published in German language only, but has been unofficially translated into English.
The actual gameplay is silent and the atmosphere described by text. Occasionally, it is interrupted for a triumphant or alarming jingle or even a cutscene with sound effects. The music is generally atmospheric and fitting, although Loader may have to be considered a cliffhanger.
Hartwig used RoMuzak v6.3. The titles given below for his songs are unofficial.
Huus used his own editor and drivers and gave his titles in two demos. Huus states on his blog that he was never paid and for many years believed that the game was not finished.
The music uses SID's built-in filter, which sounds different on every SID chip. Hartwig's songs were recorded from the game running in VICE 3.2 with the model 6581 (ReSID) and a filter bias of 100. While it is the best-sounding tried configuration, it is unconfirmed how close it is to Hartwig's. Huus' songs were recorded with a filter bias of 333 to resemble his own recording of Title-Music on his blog.
