Description

"While playing Secrets of Rætikon ..., I was on cloud nine." - Joystiq.com

"I can't wait to dig into the full game ..." - Destructoid.com


Ruthless bird versus bird action. Wild animals and the artefacts of a mysterious ancient culture. A game full of challenge and discovery – unlike anything you've played before.


You find yourself alone in the mountains of the Alps. Discover strange contraptions, wild animals and the mysteries of an ancient culture. Uncover the Secrets of Rætikon in an atmospheric, open-world 2D game in which you fly like a bird and explore an uncharted world.

Secrets of Rætikon is an action-focussed exploration game with an open world. Fly through the savage mountains of the Alps and collect parts of ancient machines. The world is rich in interactivity. Trees, rocks, plants and animals – everything is physics based and can be grabbed and dragged around.

Hostile animals protect their habitats and interact with you as well as each other. Use this ecosystem to your advantage: drag a bird of prey to another predator and they attack each other; grab a robin and feed it to a buzzard – it will attack the poor bird instead of you; defend yourself by wielding spiked plants or by pushing foes into thornbushes.


Key Features:

  • Single player campaign

  • An emergent ecosystem influenced by your actions

  • A living, breathing world where everything is physical

  • Many different kinds of animals

  • An epic story told in Raetic runes

  • Huge animal kings and ancient contraptions

  • Achievements and Stats

  • Play creatively and solve puzzles the way you want

  • Full game editable via the built-in level editor

  • Easily share your self-designed levels via Steam Workshop

Beautiful and Engrossing

This is a highly stylized and gorgeous game where you play as a bird. The controls are fairly basic, you fly using the arrow keys (a controller would work better), there's a boost, and you can grip things. You fly around and interact with the environment and other animals, which either avoid you, attack, or try to steal from you.

As you explore, you discover devices that are powered by the slivers you collect. There are also runes to decode that give you fragments of information. Everything is set out for you to discover. And the interesting and beautiful design, mixed with the calming music, makes this a very pleasant experience.

An interesting indie game

Control a little bird, in a unique, strange, living world. Find and decrypth the mysterious runes/hieroglyphs and solve the mystical puzzles on solid pyhsic based levels.

Great, minimalistic, tangram like art style and superb, quality sound effects.

A little game, little price - well: recommended.
