The son of the developer that created Morpheus is now doing a remake for today's computers and mobile platforms.

The website is located here.

There is an interactive gallery here.

Check out the update videos here.

Well this is exciting news as Morpheus was one of my favorite games. Not much on the web page except pictures. I can't find anything that states its a real remake which to me would be updated graphics, resolutions and wide screen or just making the old game work on newer systems like using an emulator which would have the original graphics and 4:3 screen size. I am not a Twicher or Tweeter so maybe they explain more there.

You can see what they are doing on the videos here.

Greyfuss, the screens are playable if you click on them.

I've invited him to come stop in, so hopefully he will register and post.

Maybe not with the web-based interface though.
And I thought the graphics looked grainy even back when I played it, so a version with higher resolution graphics would have an advantage.

There was a casual game with a similar story -- Emerald Maiden: Symphony of Dreams -- where you are on what appears to be an elaborate Titanic-like steamer from the early 1900's, and can travel to different worlds. Morpheus and Emerald Maiden had that in common. Morpheus did it better though. Even with the grainy graphics, the places you visited had more atmosphere, and some were genuinely creepy.

Loved this also. I believe that I have the original version on my shelf. Right now I have reinstalled and playingsMOEBIUS,
that I purchased from GOG. This was also a great adventure game, together with Mag's walkthrough to help me.
Unfortunately, nobody is writing a text/image WT anymore, so I really can't play the new games any longer. I can't keep up with the Video walkthroughs.
BTW, I haven't seen Mag here in a long time. I hope she is well and enjoying what I think is retirement?

I don't like video walkthroughs, its like playing the game twice. And you may have to sit through more than one to find the one that applies to where you're stuck. I only did that with one game and that was enough for me.

I think most of us prefer written walkthroughs. But more and more walkthroughs are videos ones rather than written, and sometimes now it's one of the few ways left to get help or to get past a stuck point.

Gameboomers has two written walkthroughs for the original Morpheus...
a four part walkthrough by Linda Shaw from July 1998
(older than Gameboomers I think)
http://www.gameboomers.com/wtcheats/pcMm/MorphLS1.htm
http://www.gameboomers.com/wtcheats/pcMm/MorphLS/MorphLS2.htm
http://www.gameboomers.com/wtcheats/pcMm/MorphLS/MorphLS3.htm
http://www.gameboomers.com/wtcheats/pcMm/MorphLS/MorphLS4.htm

and one by Dan Kennedy from December 2001
http://www.gameboomers.com/wtcheats/pcMm/Morpheus.htm

Whether these would help with the online version I don't know.

Greetings, just found this thread and wanted to chime in on details for the Morpheus remake I have been working on.

- This is a faithful 1:1 remake of the original game
- Currently using the original released-to-CD assets
- I am building apps which wrap the web page into something which feels like a native application for mac, PC, linux, iOS and Android
- I plan on releasing to the various app stores for a nominal (<$5) price, but it's never really been about the money. I'll probably keep it free to play on the website in some fashion
- I have most of the original unmastered, uncompressed Morpheus assets and 3D models. After releasing the game, my next project will be to remaster all of the assets in to a high resolution version (Morpheus HD)

The game is ~95% complete. I am currently writing a fully automated play through of the entire game before a final re-write of the rendering engine to increase performance and reduce memory usage. There are a couple of bugs that block the player. The game also needs a little more polish (loading screen, start screen, do something other than crash at the end of the game, etc...).

Here are some ways you can follow the development:
- On Twitter https://twitter.com/dev_morpheus
- On Itch.io https://soapbubble.itch.io/
- On Facebook https://www.facebook.com/MorpheusGame/
- On Youtube https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyuVxOQF3M2d1Q2U65GSaVw

The game engine I wrote in pursuit of remaking Morpheus is open source https://github.com/soap-bubble/morpheus. Later on I'll add some more documentation and tools for creating new games in the style of Morpheus.

Hi

I did a written walkthrough for the original Morpheus game some years ago, but I do not have it anymore. I would love to do a completely new text walkthrough for the new Morpheus game as it gets released and I even could do it in English.

About walkthroughs......

It's not true that there aren't any real walkthrough writers anymore. I'm one and I'm at it for about 27 years now. True.....my walkthroughs are mostly in the Dutch language, but I could do English to, when I'm asked nicely. And there is always Google Translate

It's all about money.....games cost money and I most have the game to do a walkthrough for it. But even with gog.com I can't afford to buy 10, 20 0r 30 games each year. My annual budget for buying games isn't that big, so there are chooses to be made witch game I buy and witch game I don't buy

My walkthrough site gets hundreds of visitors each day, from all over the world, and they all use my walkthroughs. A few years back I had a PayPal button on my site, so people good donate me a few euros or dollars to show there appreciation and to Up my budget,.... no one ever did.

Perhaps this is something you could think about when you ask for a text walkthroughs for a game here. Would you be willing to pay for a text walkthrough?, so the writer of it would get something of his/here cost back in return......Just a thought...

Also just an FYI that you can download the original Morpheus (packaged in a DOSBox emulator) for free at http://collectionchamber.blogspot.co.uk/2017/06/morpheus.html. Quicktime 3 and the game in general do not run very well in the emulator environment (static in sound and a flickering mouse cursor) but it is the best way to run the original Morpheus on modern PCs.

Hi

If you're playing the old Morpeus game and are in need of a good text walkthrough with screenshots, than perhaps you can use my Morpheus walkthrough that someone just sent back to me. I've made this one in 2002 and it's now on my site again at www.pcgameswalkthroughs.nl It's in Dutch but, I say it again, you could use a translation service to translate it for you in your language. Or you could ask me nicly if I could do an English translation for it

Happy gaming

Well dear Mad, I ask for it, so I have to deliver. Problem is I do not have the Morpeus game anymore, so I can not replay it to check if my old walkthrough is accurate. It is 15 years ago that I made that walkthrough. So it has to be a pure translation of the walkthrough. I go do it after I have finished with Lighthouse, I suspect that that's the case within a day or two now

Happy gaming

Hi Mad

As promised....I have finished the Lighthouse wt, so I started the English translation of my old Morpheus wt to day. A have upload a first bit to my site. You can find it if you go to my site at www.pcgameswalkthroughs.nl and there click the link ENGLISH VERSION to get to my English page. I would appreciate feedback about the bit a have just translated into English. I can not replay the game because I do not have it anymore, and it has been 15 years ago that I made the Dutch Morpheus walkthrough. So, I can not check if it all make sense what I write. My memory of the game is practicaly none

Happy gaming

Marinus_Louis

Hi again Louis,
I just looked at your newly added Morpheus WT, and even though I have played this game at least twice, when the new version is released I WILL get it, and all because of your amazing WT. Thanks again for being here for us.

Hi Marinus_Louis smile

I just peeked at your English translation of your Morpheus walkthrough and it looks splendid to me !! So thank you very much grin

I no longer have the "original" game but do intend to buy the new version once it's released and I'm sure your walkthrough will prove to be very helpful yes

Hi Mad

Thanks for your feed back....I go on with the English wt then......

I do have the new version of Morpheus on my wishlist and if it's possible I shall then improve theMorpheus walkthrough with a lot more screenshots. It was a nice game to play. Someone is sending me the original game CD's this week, but it is not certain that the game wil install or play on my Windows 8.1 pc...We shall see.

Today I got the original Morpheus Cd's from 1998. But alas......it will not work with the 64 bit version of Windows 8.1 that I have. The original Morpheus is 16 bits or 32 bits and that won't work on 64x machines. Tried comptability mode but that won't work either. You can safeley assume that this old game will also not work with Windows 10, but I can't try this because my Windows 10 machine doesn't have a cd/dvd-drive. So...I'll have to wait until the release of the remake version

Hi Jenny100

No, I do not have any virtual machine software installed on my computers. Years ago I would have done this but now I do not bother anymore. Now days I think "You win some, You loose some". Guess I'm getting old. I'll wait for the remake of Morpheus and for now I just do an English translation of the old Dutch walkthrough, such as it is. I shall sent the two Morpheus CD's back to the person who was so kind to sent them to me to try it out.

The original Morpheus will not run on 64bit hardware because it depends on Quicktime 3 which does not work on 64 bit machines. In order to play the original morpheus, you will need a virtual machine. Or you can go and download Morpheus packaged in a runnable emulator at http://collectionchamber.blogspot.co.uk/2017/06/morpheus.html.
