PostCurious, the company behind the “insidiously clever” puzzle adventure The Tale of Ord, presents The Emerald Flame, a new epic for fans of escape rooms, game nights, and “not just games but…experiences.
Commissioned by an organization shrouded in mystery, players take the role of a historical expert and embark on a quest to piece together a recipe for a transformative elixir by deciphering messages, interpreting strange alchemical diagrams, and manipulating curious objects. The Emerald Flame tells a vibrant story over three distinct episodes, each packed with hand-drawn illustrations, unique components, and original puzzles of varying difficulty, challenging and engaging players of all experience levels. Each of the three chapters takes approximately 2-3 hours to complete, and can be played solo or in a small group.
Players will also have access to free PDF translations of all the game text in German, French, and Spanish, making it easy for non-native English speakers to read the clues and letters in another language while solving the printed game materials.

Emerald Flame is in a class of its own, from its art direction to its gameplay. Its three chapters had tight, creative puzzles. They varied in complexity, while feeling fair and innovative. Emerald Flame felt like a successor to Post Curious’ first product Tale of Ord… but tighter and more refined in virtually every way.
