- THB Fansite










Soft Enterprises


NEW! (January 2021) Big news: Thanks to a fan, we finally have the "adult mode" patches available! This allows you to finally play the game with both the fun intro video and the awesome death animations! Check them out!

This website is dedicated to the great German FPS The Hidden Below (THB), created in 1994 by Soft Enterprises.

A lot of love was put into the game, which is evident from the advanced engine for the time, the immersive atmosphere, and the great storyline. However, it was unfairly panned by reviewers who were head-over-heels for Doom and didn't appreciate the creativity in this game.

There is very little information about THB on the internet, probably because the game had very little distribution outside of Germany, and the game is entirely in German. This makes it difficult for an international audience to fully appreciate the game.

To rectify this, this site provides English translations of all media related to THB. Additionally, I offer downloads of hard-to-find THB demos and patches. It is my hope that by providing this information in an accessible format, more people will be able to appreciate this game for the gem that it is. Also, be sure to check out the Reviews section where you can leave your own review and comment on others.

Here's a description of the game from the back of the box:
