What is The Tale of Ord? Will there be a reprint?

The Tale of Ord was a limited edition game with only 500 copies. It was narrative puzzle adventure told in four packages, each containing various clues such as articles, maps, letters, drawings, unique artifacts, and a mysterious wooden box… Each package had its own conclusion while the overall story developed throughout the entire experience. The Tale of Ord is currently sold out without any plans for a reprint. Please subscribe to our newsletter for updates in case that ever changes.

Is there anything in The Emerald Flame that doesn’t come in the package that I will need to play the game?

You will need an internet connected device, a pencil, ruler, scissors, and a way to light a fire.

We like to give you a challenge, but we know getting stuck without help is no fun. That's why we provide players with an easily accessible hint system, as well as spoiler-free solution verification.
