a tarot puzzletale

A narrative puzzle adventure, a functional tarot deck, and a beautiful art object all in one, this collaboration between PostCurious and Jack Fallows, creator of Cryptogram Puzzle Post, is now live on Kickstarter. Featuring 78 custom illustrated cards, The Light in the Mist will immerse players in an intimate coming-of-age story as they solve through a series of puzzles of varying style and difficulty. Visit the Kickstarter page for more details about the project.


PostCurious, the company behind the “insidiously clever” puzzle adventure The Tale of Ord, presents The Emerald Flame, a new epic for fans of escape rooms, game nights, and “not just games but…experiences.”

Commissioned by an organization shrouded in mystery, players take the role of a historical expert and embark on a quest to piece together a recipe for a transformative elixir by deciphering messages, interpreting strange alchemical diagrams, and manipulating curious objects. The Emerald Flame tells a vibrant story over three distinct episodes, each packed with hand-drawn illustrations, unique components, and original puzzles of varying difficulty, challenging and engaging players of all experience levels. Each of the three chapters takes approximately 2-3 hours to complete, and can be played solo or in a small group.

Players will also have access to free PDF translations of all the game text in German, French, and Spanish, making it easy for non-native English speakers to read the clues and letters in another language while solving the printed game materials. 


The Kickstarter campaign is now over but you can still visit the page for more info about the game and pre-order the game in our shop.
