The Mermaid’s Tongue (Demo) – Let’s Play

Hello friends. This is a Let’s Play video of “The Mermaid’s Tongue”. Magnus Mortuga has been killed. The captain of the world’s strangest submarine, he was found in a locked room with an ancient stone cauldron – unsealed and opened for the first time. How did he die? Was it a curse? Perhaps one of his eccentric crew? Or does the bizarre truth run even deeper…

“The Mermaid’s Tongue” immerses players in the dark, enigmatic depths of a long-abandoned fishing town, where the captain of the world’s most mysterious submarine, Magnus Mortuga, has met a perplexing end. Rumored to be either an immortal time-traveler or a vampire eternally concealed beneath the sea, Mortuga’s death in a locked room, alongside an ancient, newly opened stone cauldron, poses a riddle that defies ordinary logic. In this richly atmospheric adventure, players join Detective Grimoire and Sally to unravel a tapestry of secrets. Every clue is a tangible 3D object, laden with hidden details, set against the backdrop of the haunting Mortuga Submarine, meticulously hand-painted and brought to life with a beautifully eerie soundtrack by the Budapest Art Orchestra. This game weaves together elements of exploration, puzzles, visual novel storytelling, and detective work, offering a single-player experience that is as colorful and stylized as it is deeply investigative.
