What's New?
Coming to Kickstarter in 2020!

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. Be part of the story and uncover what many have sought for centuries — what hides in the glow of The Emerald Flame.
