Update 1.1: Thorny Thistles

Yet another update to make Secrets of Raetikon better!

The most important fix has to do with the newest Intel HD 4000 drivers which were not compatible with our game. The game is playable on HD 4000 cards now, but the editor is still unstable. Please follow this post for further information: http://steamcommunity.com/app/246680/discussions/0/34093781613697329/

We’ve also rebalanced and fixed dozens of bugs to make the game fairer and more welcoming to new players. The Deserter and Thorny Thistle achievements work now.

Over the last months we’ve also made the following changes that have not been announced yet:

  • You can’t get stuck in the wind tunnel anymore.
  • The stag behaves better now, e.g. it flees from buzzards
  • There were cases where progress did not save correctly. Not anymore!
  • You could get stuck in a stature before we fixed that.
  • Rabbits can walk by trees properly
  • Lynx attack magpies
  • Fishes now can be carried between levels
  • Fishes now swim with their bellies upward when dead
  • Tuned health and damage of all animals
  • Much less crashes and better responsiveness on slow machines

This is the best version of Secrets of Raetikon ever. Have fun with it!

Update 1.03: Nerfing it all

In the newest update we've made the game much much fairer. Magpies are not that unnerving anymore and the lynx pauses for a second after attacking, opening a window of opportunity to escape. The editor has received a ton of tutorials to ease you into developing your own games with Ginkgo and the game can be played past the ending credits.

This is the best version of Secrets of Raetikon. Enjoy!

Here are all the tweaks:
+ Balanced magpie speed.
+ Removed some magpies.
+ Lynx pauses his attack longer after biting.
+ Balanced health.
+ Game can be continued after credits ended.
+ Fixed bug where shard vanished when dropped into cage door without opening it.
+ Fixed sliver in deep getting pushed into solid ground.
+ Shard can’t be dropped while level switch starts fading to black -> prevent confusing situation where shard is lying near level borders and hard to find.
+ Fixed troubles with multiple connected controllers.
+ Added lots of tutorials.

À propos de ce jeu

Ruthless bird versus bird action. Wild animals and the artefacts of a mysterious ancient culture. A game full of challenge and discovery – unlike anything you've played before.

Secrets of Raetikon


You find yourself alone in the mountains of the Alps. Discover strange contraptions, wild animals and the mysteries of an ancient culture. Uncover the Secrets of Rætikon in an atmospheric, open-world 2D game in which you fly like a bird and explore an uncharted world.

Secrets of Rætikon is an action-focussed exploration game with an open world. Fly through the savage mountains of the Alps and collect parts of ancient machines. The world is rich in interactivity. Trees, rocks, plants and animals – everything is physics based and can be grabbed and dragged around.

Hostile animals protect their habitats and interact with you as well as each other. Use this ecosystem to your advantage: drag a bird of prey to another predator and they attack each other; grab a robin and feed it to a buzzard – it will attack the poor bird instead of you; defend yourself by wielding spiked plants or by pushing foes into thornbushes.

Steam Workshop integration


Secrets of Rætikon sports a full-featured level editor. You can edit every level that comes with the game or create all new levels. Levels can be shared over Steam Workshop. There is a physics sandbox that allows you to build toys or even new games. This is the same editor we use to build the game itself. It will be continuously developed for as long as we work on the game.

Il y a un rêve que je fais de temps en temps, c’est celui de faire des bonds gigantesques et d’arriver à me soustraire à la gravité pour planer au gré de mes envies. Voler quoi… comme un oiseau. Le réveil est toujours un peu décevant. Heureusement, les Autrichiens de chez Broken Rules ont semble t-il la même fascination pour le vol, et ils nous la font partager avec Secrets of Raetikon.

>>> SPOILER <<<


Secrets of Raetikon...Une première impression fantastique, apaisante, quelques difficultés dans le gameplay pour corser juste ce qu'il faut...Honnêtement le jeu est très agréable et donne la sensation d'être voué à explorer les restes d'une civilisation perdue et peut être de la rescuciter, un peu comme les Myst. MAIS ceci est vite floué quand on cherche à réellement s'intéresser au monde de Raetikon et c'est là que je me retrouve déçue.

Traduire les stèles sans tricher ne procure qu'une faible satisfaction quand elles ne font que répéter de manière très vague les principes physiques de l'environnement qui nous entoure. La belle affaire de nous voir raconter les dernières péripéties de notre oiseau, sans que cela ait même l'air d'une prophétie. Rien de tout ça, et pis, on n'apprend rien sur le monde de Raetikon, en tout cas rien que l'on ne puisse voir de nos propres yeux. On n'a rien sous la dent pour apprécier réellement l'exploration de ce monde à part les décors et les animations (qui sont tout de même superbes, c'est sûr).

Le comble de ce manège est la fin du jeu. Soit disant moralisatrice. Le gameplay incite le joueur a effectué un acte qu'il ne souhaite clairement pas (tous les let's players de ce jeu que j'ai pu visionner étaient pétrifiés en comprenant ce qu'il se passait) et aucune autre ouverture n'est possible. Les créateurs du jeu expliquent qu'ils souhaitent ainsi nous faire réfléchir sur le conflit entre l'humanité et les animaux qui vivent autour de nous. Mais où est la réflexion quand on n'a aucun choix et que l'on est obligé de tous les tuer? Le manque d'informations sur le monde de Raetikon rajoute à ce goût amer de devoir participer à la cruauté d'un monde qui ne s'explique pas. J'ai épluché tout internet pour essayer de comprendre la présence d'un "bon triangle" noir et blanc que les animaux n'attaquaient pas et pour lequel j'avais un espoir d'éviter le massacre final...et ce triangle ne sert à rien à part faire imploser la colonne centrale d'un temple dédié à des dieux animaux...

Le manque de cohérence de cette fin rend le jeu en lui-même vain et inachevé. S'il y a là-dedans de la poésie, ou une philosophie, les créateurs ne se rendent probablement pas compte combien elle n'a pas été assez travaillée et aboutie. Je ne vais pas dire que le jeu est mauvais, mais il laisse un goût amer et ne vous apportera que de la frustration. Par ailleurs, l'insistance régulière des créateurs à laisser leurs pseudos partout comme signature des stèles, statues et autres ne font transparaître pour moi qu'un orgueil qui ne les a pas laissés voir qu'ils allaient droit dans le mur, et c'est bien dommage.

Secrets Of Rætikon is a beautifully rendered game, it's all very colorful. It's hard to explain it gameplay wise. But you're a bird and you have to find artifacts that are scattered all over the world. You might say that it's a Metroidvania game but it's not. You won't gain any skills or abilities and all places are freely accessible. The goal is mainly to survive, while finding these artifacts. There are several types of 'enemies' and not all of them will attack you on the spot. Some of them will try to grab you or your artifact and others will just leave you alone because they're lower on the food chain. You can go faster by flapping your wings and you can even dive to increase your speed. The controls are unusual but work very good.

There's no map system in the game so you have to find everything by scouting the areas carefully. This can be hard, but fortunately the game is only a few hours (3-4) long so the world isn't that big.

I really enjoyed playing the game, but one thing that bothered me was the fact that you can't continue the game once you finish it. So make sure you do everything before dropping that last artifact, unless you want to play through it again, of course.

There's always room for improvement and Secrets Of Rætikon is no different. But despite its shortcomings I had a great time playing in this magical and very stylish world.

-Fun game play!
-Great 2D Adventure, Fully interactive physical world.
-Beautiful Art style.
-Puzzles are intuitive and unique.
-Solid Controls.

It's a great game. 8.5/10

Secrets of Rætikon is one of the few games where you play as an 'realistic' animal in a 2d metroidvania like world. After the game started I was smoothly flying around and enjoying the relaxing atmosphere in a world with a nice Сubism art style. The game explained simply is; find collectables to get other collectables to finish the game. Which sounds stupid but while you do this you will encounter many obstacles and enemies. Also there are other things to explore which can add to the story of Rætikon. Sometimes you really have to think about your movement so you can get to that certain area. I liked that in this game I sometimes felt sad because I had to kill other animals or plants to get health. I have to say that I didn't enjoy Rætikon to it's fullest because on my laptop I played some parts without sounds. Which really reduces the feeling of being in nature. I have to say I didn't really like the ending. But I think that may had something to do with the studio having to rush that part. Because this game didn't and still doesn't get that much attention. What I respect the dev's for: They kept on going to finish the game, because they know that these kind of games are missing in this industry. The only positive side of the game not being popular is that you really have to find everything out by yourself.

Workshop community:
Dead.
No support at all.
I will have a look at it.

Short:
A nice relaxing game where you explore around flying as a bird.
