'''Secret Files''' is a series of AdventureGames created by Deep Silver, the video game department of the Koch Media group based in Germany. There are three games in the series.

The first game, Secret Files: Tunguska ([[TheTunguskaEvent named after the explosion caused in 1908 in Siberia]]) follows Nina Kalkenkov, an average Russian woman, visiting her father, Vladimir, at his office in a Berlin museum only to find him missing and his office a wreck. The police being [[DefectiveDetective singularly unhelpful]], she tackles the problem herself, aided by one of her father's co-workers, and later boyfriend, [[AdventurerArchaeologist Max Gruber]]. The two uncover an investigation he undertook to Tunguska in the 1950's, as well as a world domination scheme that's also interested in the same investigation.

The second game, Puritas Cortis, taking place shortly after the first, begins with several members of the Catholic church, a vicar and then a bishop, being attacked and murdered over a strange parchment found while the vicar's church was undergoing renovation, referring to a prophet named Zandona, known for his gloom-and-doom prophecies. Meanwhile, Nina and Max have split up. Nina is taking a cruise to relax, while Max is headed to Indonesia to visit a former classmate, Sam Peters, at her dig site where she's uncovered an ancient temple. Both of them end up involved in thwarting an AncientConspiracy and their plan to create natural disasters to manipulate Zandona's prophecies.

The third game, simply title Secret Files 3, Nina and Max have gotten back together, and are planning to be married. However, before this happens, Max is taken by the police under charges of suspected terrorism. As it turns out, these men are not the actual police, and Nina finds herself embroiled in a plot to save him, and the world, yet again.

* GreenEyedRedhead: Nina has the look, and she gets very jealous about Max's relationship with Sam. [[spoiler: They're just friends.]]

** The third game also includes blueprints for a machine that, when activated, [[spoiler: destroys the planet of the people activating it.]] Considering the finale, [[spoiler: where a small black hole is spawned and swallows up the two bad guys before it evaporates and destroys anything else.]] Theoretically, it's possible to create one, but we don't have the resources to make it happen. [[spoiler: Enter Unobtainium.]] Further, [[spoiler: micro black holes, if spawned, are said to evaporate quickly due to Hawking radiation.]]

* PunchClockVillain: It's quite clear that, with the exception of [[spoiler: Gartissmo, Charlesroi, Sergei, and Oleg]] in the first game, and [[spoiler: the actual sect members of Puritas Cortis]] the second, all of the "bad guys" are actually fairly decent people.

* DroppedABridgeOnHim: How the BigBad typically meets his end. The first game uses a GiantWallOfWateryDoom in Antartica, so it [[HumanPopsicle puts the bad guys on ice]], the second has an [[StuffBlowingUp a self destruct sequence]] and the third has them get sucked into a black hole.
