The Light in The Mist
A narrative puzzle adventure in the form of a beautifully illustrated tarot deck.
From the minds behind The Emerald Flame and Cryptogram Puzzle Post, The Light in the Mist is a story, puzzle game, and functional tarot deck. Featuring 78 custom-illustrated cards, The Light in the Mist will challenge and engage fans of escape rooms, board games, and interactive fiction.
When your friend’s mysterious disappearance results in the discovery of an unusual item, you suddenly find yourself embarking on a journey through time. Experience a character-driven story told through the memories of a missing friend, using an object that serves as a tarot deck, a puzzle game, and a work of art.
Packed with a variety of puzzles and choose-your-own-path style non-linear gameplay, The Light in the Mist can be played solo or cooperatively in a small group and will engage players of all experience levels with over five hours of gameplay. You will need to manipulate cards, find hidden messages, and solve logic and word problems in order to uncover the deck’s secrets. Do you have what it takes to overcome the challenges thrown your way without getting lost in the mist?
The tarot deck contains 78 cards, 22 of which make up a special suit known as the Major Arcana. Each contains a puzzle that can be solved using cards from the other four suits in the deck—the Minor Arcana. Aside from the first and last puzzle, the challenges can be completed in any order, facilitating a choose-your-own-path style gameplay. Every group will experience the non-linear story in their own way, without having to learn any complicated rules.
The Light in the Mist packs a lot of fun into a small package, with over 5 hours of gameplay that can be completed solo or with a small group. The standard edition also contains two bonus puzzles, with an additional two included in the collector's edition.
