And like every Monday in AreaXbox, comes our Game Pass moment in which we hope to discover new hidden gems, or at least games that will make you have a good time. Morkredd is our choice for today.
Today we bring you a game from those who probably don’t initially encourage your purchase. But, if we made it available to us for free and test it, we find out that we made a mistake and that is a game of unusual artistic beauty.
He comes from a small Norwegian studio, Hyper games. The game was neither more nor less than four years of development. And it shows, it’s very polite and it’s almost impossible to detect the slightest Thumbtack.
Morkredd It doesn’t have any intros or cutscenes that give us clues about the story. We will discover this little by little. As we progress through the story, we will unlock murals that will give us more clues about the story that is being told.
We are dealing with two characters
In this case, light implies death, so keeping the orbs intact is our priority. to try to escape this nightmarish and dark world.
Morkredd game system and puzzles
The way to play Morkredd is that with each of the two sticks, we manage each of the characters. The What did you play Brothers: a tale of two sons you will have already mastered this subject. It will be very complicated at first and we will die several times. In fact, you can almost feel your brain “scream” if you’ve never played with these types of commands.. But what at first becomes almost inaccessible, will become very satisfying when we get used to it. The many save points, always present after each challenge, contribute to this, to our great relief.
In addition to moving while avoiding the dark, we will always have to move the orb to our side. He lights the way and prevents our death. To do this we will have to avoid falls, activate switches, open doors, make improvised bridges… To this is added that we will also have enemies, strange creatures who want to bite the orb to break it and bring back the darkness.
It does not seem very difficult in principle, we will see that it is more complicated than it seems. We will have to take into account that not only the shadows that are outside of what the orb illuminates, but that the characters also generate shadows.
Sometimes we will have to go by boat through beautiful but dark waters in which they are watching us. Other times we will go without an orb thanks to the help of small slugs that provide light.
The game offers new ways to move forward so as not to become repetitive and we want to continue to learn more about this fascinating universe.

Its artistic and impeccable
If this title stands out for anything, it’s for its graphics section
It should be noted the physics of the orb, extremely realistic, as well as the volumetric treatment of the shadows which are really incredible and realistic.
In addition, an S / X Series optimization has been launched. The game has been tested on Xbox One X and load times are optimal, so the improvements in this patch are likely related to ray tracing brightness and graphic detail.
