Quote:
Jonathan Hunt is a journalist from New York. Solving the case of Yoomurjak’s ring earned him the reputation of an expert of mysteries in the past. This time he is asked by a nuclear physics institute to throw light upon a disappearance, but the mission turns into a hunt for a peculiar meteorite that fell on earth centuries ago. What is inside the devilish stone? There must be a good reason why certain persons have been trying to get hold of it at all costs.

Key features:

• Third-person perspective

• Over 20 real locations to explore
• Over 20 characters by excellent actors and voice artists

• Logged dialogues
About the previous episode: Yoomurjak’s Ring
The story begins when Jonathan Hunt, a journalist from New York, arrives in the city of Eger in Hungary for a break. He has local ancestry and speaks the language, but this is not the only motive for his visit. In the heritage of his great-grandfather, the globetrotter professor Samuel Hunt (known from the Agon series), he found two letters dated back in 1898. The letters were from a somewhat lunatic Hungarian scientist about a time machine he claimed to be working on. The references point to Eger, and Jonathan wants to find out what happened to the man and his preposterous invention. But soon he realizes that someone is desperately trying to stop him…

About the development of Miazma
Like Yoomurjak’s Ring, this title is also an FMV adventure game, developed by the same crew. It takes you to real locations with live-action cinematic approach. The game designer is Pierrot, also known for his adventure game series Agon.

Miazma was developed with the support of the Institute for Nuclear Research of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (Atomki) in the framework of scientific project Understandable-available physics. English localization was supported by EPS, NuPECC and ENSAR2. Additional supporters: KIA Motors Hungary.


Happy Gaming!

Thanks. And since I already know from the previous thread that the last third of the game won't be wonderful, I won't care about that and can fully enjoy the rest, so thanks to those who beta tested as well.

I played and reviewed the previous game back in 2009. If they've maintained that level of professional production, it'll be worth playing. I gave Yoomurjak's Ring an A- at the time, because it was a good story, well told and well made as a game despite a few minor flaws.

Is this one in English, or Hungarian subtitled in (slightly ropey-at-times) English, as Yoomurjak's Ring was?

The English version is 100% in English, both voice and subtitles.
Also the voices sound like they were done by native English speakers.

Yes, voices were done by native English speakers, with one exception. (Altogether 21 voice talents for 22 characters).

Hope everyone enjoys this game... if you liked Yoomurjack's Ring, you will also love this one!


In my PC corner for the winter, my little heater by my side, to game, read and knit.

Is there any chance the game might eventually be offered in a non-Steam version ??

[I very much enjoyed Yoomurjak's Ring.]

I'd like to be able to play Yoomurjak's Ring prior to Miazma since this is a sequel, so I'm hoping it becomes available. I believe I saw in a different thread that it will (if I understood it correctly).

I have completed 'Miazma', and I have to say I like it a lot smile

It is not as great as 'Youmurjak's Ring' though, much shorter and claustrophobic, as we spend most our time in Atomki (the Institute of nuclear physics). And if some players do not like too many dialogues (I do smile ) - they can find it boring to outlive the first day and to proceed to the second one where there are much more puzzles and dynamics.

Thanks for that info Iurii. Sometimes too much dialogue bothers me.

Thank you, Iurii smile

Miazma has a rich story and dialogs are needed to unfold it. Many people like dialogs and many don't. Hard to please both smile

In Miazma, the designers addressed this through various techniques/options.

First of all, likeable characters. Some of them really amusing.

Second, all dialogs, movies and cutscenes can be skipped with a click. (Puzzles too). This means you can click through any part (like the first day) quite quickly. I you do so, you'll miss some of the story and clues that will be needed later in the game, but...:

Dialogs are recorded in a journal so you can look up everything even if skipped!

I try to never use skip buttons as I don't want to miss anything, even long dialogs, but it is nice to know they are available.
Thanks Pilaus!

Iurii, Bravo for finishing this game. I'm stuck at one point. (Please read my post on "Adventure Game Hints"-"Miazma Dead End"). Any help you can provide to me would be greatly appreciated.

So they borrowed from MMORPGs which allow skipping cut scenes so people repeating repeatable content don't have to watch it every time. I used to be the one who hadn't done it before in SWTOR and would watch the cutscenes. Some people handle having to wait for the newbie better than others.

Skipping cut scenes was allowed in adventure games as far back as the 1990's. Just depended on the game. It's certainly not unique to MMORPG's.
