Hope you are still thinking about this game! Really fabulous

Well I'm overwhelmed by too many things to do, but I don't forget it and want to finish this project someday. Reading positive comments such as yours can definitely speed up the process ;)


Thanks for this fun game! Unfortunately the magical words are not working for me! I thought I was doing something wrong, but I re-checked and it seems ok. So I have one question: does the signposts near the rivers (second and fourth ones) are the same word? Thanks!


Hey, sorry for taking so long to reply, I don't connect here every day. Thanks for trying out this short game!
The magical words that are the same are 2nd and 3rd. How did you get to the solution that it is 2nd and 4th?
Honestly I made this game quite long ago now, so it's hard to remember the good answer to try to help you.

However I have written in my notebook:

sign 1 SuaMhe
sign 2 SuaIar
sign 3 SuaIar
sign 4 NatCosIar
sign 5 CosNat

However I don't remember the correct order. I hope it can still help you resolve it! Good luck!


Great game for something made in a single week by one person

The spoiler banner doesn't work on itch

The correct order is 5 2 1 3 4

Hope you continue to develop Shadow of the Morrigan in a close future to make a full version

Thanks. Well I would prefer to be able to hide the answers with a spoiler banner if it was possible (same thing with the correct order that you are giving in your message). 

I'm glad you liked the game however!

It's in my plans to continue to develop this project a little more as soon as I have the time. Many of the ideas have already been written, so... I hope it will be this year! But it will remain a small free game, there's no plan to make it a full and ambitious project.

Thank you The Icehouse and JeanMiMims! The order is like Jean said, but there is an error in the game. As pictured below, it should be "SuaMha" (from Mhara) and not "Suamhe". Also, at first, I thought that "Nat" was actually "Rat" (but later I tried the "N" as well). 

Really cool game for such a short period of time!

Oh indeed, from your screenshot it should be Mha, not Mhe! That's something I need to fix asap when I get to work on this project again. It's surprising that other people could finish the game despite this error, I don't know how they found out the correct words to enter...

It's true that the font doesn't make it clear which is a R and which is a N. That's something someone else noticed before, I'll try to fix it too. 

Thanks for playing KaosKahn, and for the feedback!


a really impressive and atmospheric 3d game - with a great music .-) - not a huge fan of 3d games - but yours is good and it's really an intriguing adventure game

Thank you Marco! Sorry for the late reply, I wasn't at home lately. Now I'm curious to discover your games too ;)

Very beautiful and I think you succeeded at making it really Myst-like (and mist-like, considering the amount of fog 😂). I was a bit disappointed that it ended when it did, but only because I really wanted to keep on playing. Nice work!

Had a few times where I got stuck in the landscape (most of the times I was able to get out of it my just moving/running back and forth until the game let me pass, one time I couldn't and had to restart - it seems to happen after loading, then I can no longer pass the Witch's Hand in either direction).

Hi Steven, many thanks for all of your post, from the good vibes to the helpful feedback! Another update is planned in the future for a longer version of the game and as many issues fixed. I'll take a look at the move issue where you got stuck. Hopefully you'll be able to continue playing until the end of the story as it was initially planned, if you're still interested. Cheers!

C'est un bon début mais effectivement, ce n'est pas fini. Ce n'est pas du tout un Myst-Like car il y a beaucoup trop de paroles. 

Souvent on ne sait pas dans quelle direction on marche. Pourquoi ne pas faire un déplacement normal en 3D plutôt que ce mélange de click et de vidéo ?

Bon courage

He bien c'est corrigé !
