About

“Morkredd” is the Norwegian word for fear of the dark. In the game, you must use light and shadow to solve puzzles in a dark world inspired by long winters and Nordic culture.

In Morkredd, the Orb always calls for two. This means in single-player you must master the controls of two characters simultaneously, or grab a friend for two-player couch co-op.

Key Features

  • The Orb Calls for TwoMorkredd is best played as a couch co-op experience. Heed the Orb’s call with a friend or prove your loyalty alone by mastering the unique dual-character controls.
  • Your Path is the Orb – You are the Orb’s protector, and the Orb’s light is yours. Survive and master over 60 puzzles while avoiding the shadows caused by your partner and the environment.
  • The Orb is Your Only Friend – An endless abyss of deadly shadows conceal dangers in this cold, dark world. Stay with the Orb if you want to stay alive.
    Gaze into the Orb: Discover ancient secrets about the Orb hidden in the darkness.
