“All in all, this is one of the best P&C adventure games I've ever played. Every aspect is impressive on its own and when all of its elements are combined, a truly worthy gaming experience is born. For fans of the genre or horror games in general, this game won't disappoint.”
9/10 – Game Walkers

“Every single piece of art is absolutely stunning and the gameplay complements it well. It has a perfect length for what it is and the world stays with you well after you’re finished. Tormentum is one of the most strikingly visual adventure games and the small team at OhNoo Studio should be proud of what they’ve made.”
9/10 – Pixel Related

“All clearly inspired by the nightmarish flesh-stretching surrealism of HR Giger with occasional hellscapes in the style of Hieronymus Bosch, Tormentumis never less than amazing to look at and the push to see the next piece of f***ed-up artwork is what drove me on through the game the most.”
7/10 – Game Watcher

About This Game

TORMENTUM is a dark Point & Click adventure game.



The dreamlike, nightmarish atmosphere of the game was inspired by works of painters H.R. Giger and Zdzislaw Beksinski. The game's final look and feel was also strongly influenced by the universes of games such as Demon's Souls or Dark Seed. This unique mixture gave life to a bleak and depressing world.



Those are however the least of his problems as the airship lowers its flight towards a huge gloomy castle which soon becomes his prison. Thus begins the surreal story bordering somewhere between dream and reality...

Key features:

  • THE GAME WORLD: 3 realms, differing in architecture and creatures inhabiting them. You'll meet characters with unique personalities who will help you - or try to prevent you from - reaching your goal.
  • ART: 75 hand-painted stages. The game also features over a hundred additional screens as well as dozens of paintings created by the mad painter residing in the cathedral.
  • PUZZLES: During your journey you will come against 24 varied logical puzzles and minigames.
  • STORY: A dark adventure between dream and reality.
  • MUSIC: Exceptional soundtrack with over 40 tracks.

Moreover:

  • Moral choices which will affect the game's ending.
  • 34 achievements to complete.
  • 4-6 hours gameplay.
  • Languages: English, German, French, Spanish, Polish, Russian, Italian.

Though billed as a point and click adventure, Tormemtum has little in common with the genre staples like Broken Sword or Monkey Island. Rarely, if ever, will the items you collect and jam into the infinite confines of your cloak have to be assembled together into some wacky contraption that conveniently bypasses the obstacle of the moment. Exit your cell and you find a shard of mirror. On the next screen over, you find a broken mirror in need of some reflective shards. Explore your cell and excavate a jeweled eye from one of the skeletons. On the same screen as the broken mirror is a statue with empty sockets for eyes.

There’s rarely a hidden motive for collecting items and everything has a clear purpose, so puzzling comes in to form of, well, puzzles. And herein starts the unwelcome comparisons to the hidden object genre. Kind of, anyway, because as a genre, it’s moved away from presenting random screen full of jumble and asking you to pick out three blue telephones and a heron yet has someone still kept its name. I mean, I don’t know what else to call it without having to start using the world casual unironically, and I’m far too sober to attempt that.

To be clear, the kinds of object searching both genres are famed for are nonexistent in Tormentum. You rarely have to junk-sort or pixel hunt as hotspots are highlighted by a flickering aura of light. Instead, the game turns to the logic puzzles that have evolved in their place, which doesn’t have to be a bad thing. You can obtain a jewel by lowering the right corpse-laden cages chronicled in a desperate sketch found outside your cell. Piecing together the broken mirror asks you to manipulate rays of light to open a passageway further into the nightmare-choked castle. Fixing a series of fuses and collecting the tattooed remains of a skeleton summons an electrified ghost you can help put to rest. It’s either that or spend more time taunting the giant needle-toothed worm who jealously guards your rat chum’s jail.

Point-and-click Adventure titles have come a long ways since the early days when Sierra dominated the scene with their classics. Over time developers have had a chance to evolve and bring in new elements and themes to the genre and I believe that Tormentum is one of those rare gems that is a result of just that. With absolutely stellar artwork and grim subject material, combined with a moral choice system you would be hard pressed to find a reason not to enjoy Tormentum. While the title is a bit on the short side (I took about 4 hours to complete it) it will completely engulf you in its story and remind you of what it is like to be absorbed into a game again. The puzzles are a fair difficulty, and the Giger inspired art style will leave you wishing there was more once you finish the game. I definitely recommend Tormentum, it is certainly worth the standard price and even better if you can grab it on sale!

Tormentum is a beautifully made point and click adventure. Often I've found in games like this that there is some moment where you have to look up the answer and there was no way you could have thought of that, this game gave me none of those. The game has stunning art that leads you through a hellish landscape and leaves you fascinated by every twisted detail. Though short and often simple, this game packs one hell of a punch in many regards and is well worth playing through.

Think H.R. Giger art intertwined with random fantasy elements, rats, and lizards.


Amazingly, the two elements work together quite nicely

This game is absolutely amazing! The artwork is heart wrenchingly beautiful, the music draws you into the world and the story is fascinatingly elusive. The more thorough you are, the more you understand said story. Add to the mix the fact that you are given choices that are not as simple as they may seem and the fates of the characters you encounter in the world are often put in your hands. Some characters may seem innocent on the outside but have great evil beneath the surface while others may seem clearly inclined toward darkness but have some aspects of their personalities that are oddly endearing. You'll find that the path of good and evil is not so straightforward in the world of Tormentum as it might be in other games and this becomes a driving force to be thorough in your exploration so that you might better understand the choices you are given and their potential ramifications. All in all, I couldn't recommend any game more then this one.

A little different from most Point and Click games I play, but overall a fun experience. The puzzles are challenging but casual enough you only need a bit of trial and error to figure them out.

However, I think the price tag is too steep for a game that only took 3 hours to finish. If you can catch it on sale, it's very much worth it.

There is beauty within Darkness...

Three words to describe the feelings to this game - Death, Decay, Destruction!

Your choices matter!

A short game that can be finished within a few hours of dedication but worth it if you are admirer of dark and twisted macabre art or creepy storylines. I found the art concepts in game enjoyable, the words "Beautiful death" come to mind. The artist has put a lot of thought and work into the intricate designs in this game. But what of gameplay and story? The gameplay is a puzzle game of the point and click variety, progress by collecting items and solving puzzles using some experimentation and logical thinking. They are not however extremely hard puzzles so those seeking a challenge should be aware of this, it is more a multiple choice story than it is a challenging puzzle game.

As for the story, without giving away too much it was thoroughly enjoyable, playing through twice, once as evil, once with a sincere heart. And I'd play it again. If the artwork and visuals alone do not captivate you, then play it simply to explore your inner self and gain insight into how simple choices can affect the grand scale of events.

I recommend this game based on its visual excellence and intriguing story. Much appreciation to the creators of this game, you have created something truly beautiful.

This is a fantastic point & click adventure game. The artwork is amazing with every new level and the puzzles are just hard enough to make you take just a second to question them. Overall a fantastic game and I would loe to see more games in this artwork style.

The artystyle is amazing. Puzzels are a bit obscure and some results are based off luck (looking at you salamander wheel)
Aside from that the gameplay is just standard point and click but it makes up for the genericness with an amazing artstyle

I was a bit disappointed that the game was so short, it's easily played through in 3-4 hours. But other than that I really enjoyed the game! The story and the artwork is really nice.

I'm super into metal, so the art work drew me in immediately. I've also been a fan of point and click since way back, but hadn't played one in a while so gave this a go.
It's the first game ever where I've gotten all the achievements and it needs 3 play throughs to get all of them unless you cheat and use a guide

+ Amazing artwork
+ Excellent atmospheric music
+ A good puzzler for the more relaxed point and click player
+ Good replay value
+ The story in itself is a puzzle and reveals itself as the game plays along
+ The game hangs together really well. The devs were careful about making sure all possible outcomes work, no matter what choices you make
+ Leaves a lasting impression
+ Objects and points of interest were very easily identifiable and this is something many adventure games don't do well enough!


- Not Full-HD artwork. I saw a post by the devs saying it would take several months to upgrade the game to Full HD instead of being stretched like it is now. Not sure why they didn't just go with Full-HD from scratch considering how much time must have gone into each drawing/scene.
- Black borders. There should be an option to use icons for the notepad and inventory bag so that there is no need for a left and right border on either side of the screen
- The arrows to move inbetween areas need to have better contrast against the background
- Could have been a bit longer

This game is beautiful in its own style. The graphics are absolutely unique, very dark, creepy and disturbing but also very well done. Sounds are ¨very good and music is simply astonishing. Puzzles are of medium difficulty but never frustrating or very easy. Overall the game is not very long, I finished it in 5 hours, but it has two endings, so you can play it again, make different decisions and find out if you are bad or good person. For me, thumbs up and recommendation!

Okay, this game isn't perfect. My two main complaints are that it is too easy and that the good ending vs bad ending is too black and white becuase if you make one bad decision, and the rest all good, you still get the bad ending. No middle ground.

That being said, HOLY ♥♥♥♥ THE ARTWORK! THE ATMOSPHERE, THE MUSIC, THE DECISONS (ENDING ASIDE) were all super captivating and warrant at least two play throughs. Get it on a sale and you will have your money's worth. I was entertained throughout and am curious to see what the devs do next.

Long live Giger's Ghost!

Pretty good point and click adventure game. The art is really the star of this game, everything else just moves you along to each next set piece. First play through was about 3.5hrs. Puzzles are pretty intuitive and not that difficult. The story is linear, with two branch options. Worth it if you like this art design or if you enjoy point and click adventure games (also doesn't hurt if you catch it on sale).

One of the best point and click Games I´ve ever played...
The Puzzles are from simple/easy to normal.
For my taste they could have been a bit more difficult.

The Artwork is just stunning and the whole game I
just was captured by all the details in it.
Played 3 times through now and still see new details.

The Game has a nice balance between Story and puzzles.

Could be a bit longer Playtime ;) but its definitely worth the money.

Hope they make a second Part, I`ll buy it straight away :)

Quite probably one of the best Point N' Click games I've played in my life and for sure among the 10 Top best art EVER (regardless of genre). At first I was a bit reluctant to buy it but after finish it for the first time I was completely amazed. How could have I doubt about getting it? It's awesome and unlike many P-n-C games, this one has actual replay value. I'm so impressed by this game that I'm actually going to order the physical version too. By the way, did I mention the art is AMAZING? Also, is you are into Metal (Black Metal, Technical Death, Brutal Death, etc) get this game now. Not because the soundtrack is Metal, but because the whole game is METAL AS F*CK!!!!!!

Also, get this game if you are fan of artists such as H.R Giger or more recently Par Olofsson

WHERE IS TORMENTUM 2!!!!!?????

I've never played a point-and-click game that I liked, but I really enjoyed the artwork in this game and I think that is what kept me going. I wanted to see what was on the next screen. Ended up finishing the game in about 3-3.5 hours. Really, the only thing that disappointed me was the lack of difficulty; the puzzles really posed no challenge. I completed a few of them before finding the hints that were supposed to accompany the puzzle.

If you're undecided, I would recommend getting it on sale.

This game is a work of art in the literal sense. It is representative of the pinnacle of the point-and-click adventure genre in many ways: a sort of visual novel that uses interactivity, animation, music and sound to engage the listener in a thought-provoking story.

The criticisms, while generally accurate, in my opinion miss the point of what is being delivered. Yes, it's short, a bit too easy, and the morality of the game is controversial, but none of this really detracts from the essence of what's being presented. (In fact, the very presence of a morality that gets people fired up is a big hint that there's something noteworthy about this game.)

OhNoo has distilled the genre to its fundamentals and executed those almost flawlessly. They are a young studio with limited resources that deserves your support. The art and atmosphere of this game beg to be expanded upon. I cannot imagine what these guys might do in the world of Tormentum, given sufficient resources and ambition. Buy this game.

A little short, but still incredible. The artwork is some of the best I've ever seen in a point and click adventure game. The puzzles are hard enough, and the atmosphere is grim, dark, and all in all lovely.

All in all if you are in any way a fan of adventure games, and don't mind paying for a shorter experiance, I'd highly reccomend that you buy this game.
