“Painting Werther is the adaptation of The Sorrows of Young Werthers, in The Leiden des jungen Werthers in German, originally written by Johann Wolfgang Goethe in 1774. The original book tells a story of Werther, a man who loves Charlotte, a woman who loves Albert. Werther is ended up committing suicide by freeing himself from being corresponded. When Painting Werther was published in 1774, it romanticized the idea of committing suicide and dying for love. It was the best-selling German book and became one of Napoleon’s favourite works. Painting Werther will last more than 4 hours, and contains more than 150 authors and 500 works, all of which are public domain. This game will include more than two hours of advanced classical music. The OST will be launched on Steam, too.
