Test your skills and unlock the secrets of a dark world with fatal shadows in Mørkredd. Aspyr and Hyper Games today announced Mørkredd, an innovative co-op puzzler, coming to Xbox as a console exclusive this December. Mørkredd will also launch on Windows 10 PC and Steam. In Mørkredd, 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 2-player couch co-op.


Mørkredd was first started as a one-week game jam back in 2017, and has been in development since. The core premise of the game is still the same, although the game has evolved a lot since then.


  • 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.
  • Gaze into the Orb: Discover ancient secrets about the Orb hidden in the darkness.
