“Not-that-long but enjoyable point & click adventure with excellent soundtrack, a great theme and beautiful story, I recommend you to take a look at Earthworms.”
7/10 – Gamenews Plus

“One area of fiction that is very well known for short stories is science fiction. All the greatest sci-fi writers penned numerous excellent short stories and to me, Earthworms is All Those Moments’ first foray into the genre, just using a video game as their medium.”
8/10 – The Video Game Almanac

“Mystery and weirdness, combined with lots of puzzles and an amazing music score.”
4/5 – Adventure Advocate

About This Game

The Earthworms is independent, artistic, point & click game placed in surrealist world of science-fiction. All the locations in the game were painted manually and shown from a unique perspective.


You play as a private detective named Daniel White, who is endowed with parapsychic abilities. Visions that he gets, help him to solve investigations. At first glance, the case that you are part of is about missing teenage girl who's from a small fishing village. With every next location, you will experience more and more weird situations and discover that everything is leading to a big global conspiracy. If you think that is only summer walk through the fishing village, you are wrong. This is an epic adventure which will blow your mind.

The motto of our game:
“There are more things in Heaven and Earth, than are dreamt of in your philosophy”.
William Shakespeare
