Publisher Aspyr Media and developer Hyper Games have announced Morkredd, a cooperative puzzle game coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series, and PC via Steam and the Microsoft Store. It will launch in December for $19.99.
Here is an overview of the game, via Aspyr Media:
“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.
- The Orb Calls for Two – Morkredd 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.
