Crash-landed on a desolate, alien planet, what should've been a routine work-for-hire job for Powell has become a deadly mission to save the merchant vessel Morningstar and her crew.

As of Feb. 17, 2015 Morningstar became a full fledged PC game. Currently available on Steam, this version features remade graphics in 1080p, new HD cutscenes, remastered soundtrack, voice acting, new locations, new puzzles, an extended story, achievements and steam trading cards.



Rated 5 / 5 stars


This is a really intelligent point-and-click adventure. The plot is well thought out and the puzzles are devastatingly clever. I was happy that you guys used real logic with your puzzles instead of, well... "Combine the video camera with the can of peanuts and a banana to make a rocket launcher" kind of logic. This is a long game if you don't use a walkthrough, which you're going to be tempted into doing because this game requires a good amount of thought and time to finish. But I guarantee it's worth a playthrough, because everytime you finish a puzzle, you're thinking, "Wow, that was clever". It's a really satisfying feeling.

I would gave 100 pionts if NG had that pointing :)

From all games in 'newground' had in their www side, this game is my favourite of all I saved in my "favourites". O! And I, totally agree with @MR-Woah.

Really really good game

but the crowbar and the code thing needs to be simplified. There is no logical reasoning behind the crowbar that I could at least figure out (budda + iron bar)

I probably would have gotten the three codes eventually without the walkthrough but to obtain the last two digits of the three five digit codes was ridiculously obscure. I know it seemed easy once you sit and think about it but once you get to that point in the game, if you're like me, you're already tired or fighting with the damn console enough to were the obvious seems impossible to obtain. Other than that, really really creative!

Another beef, your walkthrough takes you to a website as opposed to straight to the actual walkthrough (which I can't find on the site itself) I had to look the walkthrough up on a search engine and thank god that was even an option.

I know I probably sound like I hate this game but that's not true. Every single aspect other than the three things I mentioned was phenomenal and I really hope to see you make more of these.

One of the best!

I remember playing this a while back and completely enjoying. I was too lazy to make an account toe submit a review. Having found this gem again it is only fitting that I finally give it the praise it deserves.

The entire atmosphere of the game was apropos. Controls were easy to use. Puzzles were challenging without requiring multiple phds to solve. The story was interesting and solid. Characters were believable. Opening and ending movies ROCK! I would love to know what is the music used for the opening and ending scenes.

The only thing that could have made this better is live voices for Powell and Novak but I realize that would greatly increase the file size.

Really one of the best games I have played.
