A downloadable game
Ord. Big Update - Presskit
- What is Ord.?
Ord. is a collection of tiny textadventures that use only three words at a time!
This limitation allows us to create very evocative experiences and lets players fill in the gaps with their own imagination!
- What is the Big Update?
The Big Update adds 3 new, independent stories to Ord. (which is a 300% increase in stories)!
Embark on an adventure to dethrone an evil warlock!
Prepare for dimension-hopping escapades as you try to find a way back home!
Take on the role of a god and build your own world. Will it prosper or perish?
Foul Things (new, written by Skruffye)
Rediscover the helplessness of childhood and escape the hunger of the Foul Things...
Additionally, the amazing Damion Sheppard composed an interactive soundscape that makes Ord. come to life!
We also commissioned the wonderful Gaziter to draw us a Picture to use as promotional material:
- What Inspired Ord.?
We were heavily inspired by the "Fighting Fantasy" books by Steve Jackson & Ian Livingstone and the events of "Faster Than Light" by Subset games, but boiled these systems down to their core in order to create the tiniest textadventure game ever!
- What is the history of Ord.?
Ord. was initially released on June 5th 2019.
It has been recieved warmly by the people that know about it, but since it was our first commercial release, we made a lot of mistakes while launching the game!
We are now trying to rectify our past shortcomings by releasing the (free) Big Update!
- What is the future of Ord.?
Even after the Big Update, we are not done with Ord.!
While it is too early to promise anything, we are pursuing options to bring Ord. to more platforms, to translate it into many languages and are also working on a few new stories!
That said, some of us are going to work for other companies soon and will only have time for Ord. on the weekends.
