OverviewOverview

Ord is an unusual text adventure, rather than one grand story, you embark on a series of distinct quests. Whether it's defeating an evil warlock or creating your own world as a god, Ord tells stories through simple series of words and word associations that respond to your choices with evocative fast-paced narratives.

The game offers four adventures that you chip away at by making super-simple decisions one at a time. Each time you do, the game presents the next descriptive words and choice. The challenge is to get to the end without dying. The end of the game depends on the choices you have made during your play through. Each time you die you simply go back to the beginning and start again.

You slowly learn the right choices to pick and the position of different elements in the world. It's like a text-adventure mixed with pelmanism with a dash of WarioWare and is a lot of fun regardless of reading ability.

It's a super light touch adventure game. But although it's just text, it is beautifully presented and each tap creates a musical accompaniment.

Ord is planned for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Switch in the future, although we are awaiting a firm date.
