I love point-and-clicks like Machinarium and Hapland (look em up!), so I decided to make my own.
Cairn is a little experimental, but the puzzles are tricky and I think you'll have fun with it.
I designed, coded, and illustrated the whole thing, with the exception of the intro graphics and the music, both of which are used with permission.
Lemme know what you think.

Nice one

A nice game overall. Love the feel, the graphical design and the way the "story" was written and delivered. Loved the music as well.

As a slight digression from previous reviews though, I've found the puzzles a little more random than clever - trying to figure out what are you expected to do was the most time consuming task; once you've got it though, it became a matter of seconds to solve them. It's not a bad thing, on the contrary actually, as it required nothing more than common sense as a mean to each solution - no some cheaply hidden items that you can only find by clicking every spot on your screen, no riddles that require a Ph.D of sorts, just a normally functioning brain. It's something a lot of the puzzles I've played lately on this sight are lacking in, and for that I salute you.

Herukhel, the stick riddle is quite straight forward. Don't get frustrated too soon. Here's a tip (WARNING - SPOILERS AHEAD):

One of the pipes is missing a part. Find that part, then find a way to tow it to the broken pipe.

One of the greatest criticisms I've had is "GUHH, I can't tell what I'm supposed to do right off the bat!"
And I'm like... that's the point dummy ;)
Good to see you "get it," haha...

I bet you played Myst too

Because this one reminds me of that awesome game a lot! I love nature-blended enigmas, but i can't seem to be able to complete it right now... I moved the ball, but i'm still stuck on those mushrooms and related shapes, and that damn stick stuck in the ground! But few point n' click manage to keep my attention for so long... Great work indeed!

P.s. Any help will be kindly appreciated, folks!

Very clever

I consider myself yo be exceptionally smart, and for a moment there I almost quit. Great game, even the smallest details are amazing. Altough I finished it without resolving the stick thing...wonder if that's meant to be.


Very awsome game. It is way too hard for me, but that isn't going to stop me from giving you a good review. Just because I'm not smart enough to get it doesn't mean it's a bad game. It's a great game just to hard for me.
