STORY
During a recent local walk you discover a secret base in the forest, your adventurous side decides to investigate further. Your inquisitive nature pays off with the discovery of a submarine docked by the river.

Could the submarine transport you to more mysterious places, maybe even help unravel the puzzle of what is happening? What is a private business doing with a submarine in the first place? This seems very puzzling.

Along with the mysterious discovery of the unmarked buildings you decide there is only one way to continue the adventure, with the coast seemingly clear, you set about solving the first puzzle and finding a way into the submarine…

ABOUT

A simple gameplay interface consisting of the world that you explore and an inventory panel where you can collect, combine and use items you find along the way to solve puzzles.

Explore areas, collect hidden objects and take in your surroundings. You will need all of your puzzle solving skills to put together a plan to make your way through the woods, solving riddles and down the many paths towards the secrets of TARAKAN.

How you tackle the puzzles is down to you. Each puzzle has a logical solution, so take your time, there is no rush and enjoy the process of understanding what you have to do.

Thanks for the heads up BrownEyedTiger,
I bought the game and downloading it as I write. I just love these little games and the price is right.

Thanks Ana!

Starcom, I hope you like the game. Let us know. I was looking at the developer's bundle. All the games look pretty good.

Hi oldbroad,
It'll be a little while before I play the game but will let you know when I do. I looked at the Bundle also, but I checked some of the reviews of some of the games in the bundle and they all said they were very short games, so I prefer to pick and choose the games individually when they come on sale.

Thanks Starcom. From what I was seeing they all seem pretty short, including this one. I haven't made any purchase but am going to take another look.

I bought all. Tried the Escape the Hell House, but cannot figure how to save and quit for the night. Anyone know how to? So far I am enjoying the game, but I always have to start again. Thanks.

I noticed in the reviews other people asked about that. The answer is to use Alt/Return to get to a windowed screen or something like that. I don't know what happens then.

Look under the reviews for Ayuda.

I bought all 8 games, and have done 4 of them. They are short and similar, but I do enjoy the old style puzzles they have. Not too hard. They were cheap enough, so I am glad of that. Wish I had a longer game from him.

I did most of the games, with glitches. It made me go out and back in several times to get it to work. But with Tarakan, it got to the second chapter (?) and took the card away, not letting me finish. The guy kept asking me where I was, and I said I needed a file and where to put it to continue. His answer was to start again....with no guarantee of it going past that. This is no way to fix it. I don't want to waste more time unless it will work. I won't buy from them again since there seems to be no support. Sorry, I did like the games even though the stopping was annoying.
