Jyväskylä, Finland, April 17th 2024: Indie game developer and publisher Act Normal Games is proud to announce today the official worldwide release date of Rauniot coming to PC courtesy of STEAM™, GOG and Green Man Gaming. In this thrilling post-apocalyptic point-and-click adventure game played from an isometric point-of-view, you face intriguing puzzles with classical gameplay elements in a breathtaking story taking place in the beautiful and mysterious scenery of Northern Finland.

Rauniot takes you back to 1975 where a devastating natural disaster finally pushed civilization over the edge; continents were drowned by seas; heavy pollution has spread because of collapsed nuclear power plants and subsequent explosion. Hardly anyone has survived. The survivors are scratching a living. It was only a matter of time before riots, conflicts and wars decimated the planet. In this post-apocalyptic nightmare, children are born mutated or dead, often taking their mothers with them; fathers walk alone in bitterness and sorrow – some even driven to cannibalism as food resources slowly run out. In this sad new world nature and humanity are struggling to survive and find balance.

Rauniot challenges you to play as struggling protagonist Aino, a survivor lucky enough to be part of a group. Trust is like a razors edge, but collaboration is critical to provide protection, find food, clean water, medicine, electricity, and crucial knowledge to progress. The only thing preventing you from total isolation during these dangerous journeys are guile and determination. Have you got what it takes to master everything Rauniot throws at you?

KEY FEATURES
• Over 70 beautifully detailed scenes.
• Seamless and intuitive control system.
• Many classic puzzles that vary in difficulty.
• Some puzzles can be solved in different ways and in different order.
• Unique Finnish melancholic atmosphere.
• Informative notebook to keep track of the adventure.
• Authentic Finnish voiceovers.

Rauniot is exclusively available on PC from here:

Thanks, Ana! Not sure I have ever played a game before that takes place in Finland, but maybe I am just not remembering. wave

Thanks, Ana


Would that I could be the peacemaker in your soul that I might turn the discord and the rivalry of your elements into oneness and melody

Thank you Ana, this looks like the kind of game I would enjoy! It goes straight into my to-play list.

No, Flotsam, Zelenhgorm was Swedish. This 2002 gem was totally overlooked, and received mostly negative reviews. I loved it though, and its FMV elements were extremely impressive, sometimes with close to a dozen characters on screen simultaneously. Sadly, I don't think it's available anywhere now. Just thinking about it now makes me want to load the DVD, cross my fingers, and hope that it will work on Windows 11. I have another upcoming Swedish game to dedicate my time to though. lol

I think this is the game you mean, but on three CDs, Mikael?... (deleted link)

Yes, that's right, it's on CD. I wrongly assumed that is was on DVD.
