A downloadable game for Windows

Your sister went missing. She worked in the old Fortress for this new company of city dwellers. They paid well, and she needed the money, what with her drunkard of a husband and the children. Your mother asked you to inquire, and you don't say no if your family needs you. Not where you grew up, anyway.

And you were always fascinated by the old castle. They say it's haunted. They say there are riches there beyond your wildest dreams. Well, they also say the Black Fever had its origin there. As always, no gain without a bit of risk.

The Fortress has been decontaminated by the government, they say, the virus should be dead by now. Yes, I know, they say a lot. But you are a young, energetic, inventive guy and you are not scared about taking risks. And your sister, well, she's family, so no questions asked. Let's go and find her!


The game has four levels, the first one, The Black Forest, is free to play as a Demo!

If you like exploration, action, and story this game was made for you!


Watch out: Permadeath! No saves; you die, you restart the level.

the game is awesome. However, I could not complete the second level. It had something killing me over and over. Here is the video:

Hi Vlad, thank you so much for playtesting the second level! I know now where the bugs are and will fix them. This level is still in beta and not yet available for the general public; be patient, folks, and let me fix the bugs first!

Well designed. Good job, man. Please take a look at our page, too. We just published the new update of our first game. It’s a simple yet (we think) kinda interesting game. Thank you in advance.

Thanks a lot! Will do.

Thank you.
