Oknytt

Oknytt is a point-and-click adventure game where the player takes the role of a small, seemingly insignificant creature, leading it through a dark world riddled with obstacles to help it find a place to belong. The game takes place in a Norse medieval world and contains a number of beings and areas inspired by Swedish folklore.
Oknytt's gameplay is comprised of classic point-and-click puzzle solving combined with the usage of four runes located at the bottom of the screen. These runes can be activated at any time to trigger various changes and events in the area around the protagonist. Each rune has a specific element tied to it which have different areas of use depending on what can currently be seen in the environment.
Figuring out what the runes can be used for and how to utilise their affect on the environment together with the items at your disposal is key to you being able to progress through the game world.

  • There are some things that did frustrate us, but its universe, story and concept are so unique that we couldn't stop playing.

  • Oknytt is a game that manages to capture well the feeling of a classic Nordic fairy tale. It creates an atmosphere that almost feels like walking around in a John Bauer painting. Too bad the puzzles is somewhat unimaginative even though the system with the four elements is rather interesting. Oknytt is worth playing for fans of the adventure genre even if it’s nothing extraordinary.

  • A charming yet unassuming adventure through the pantheon of Swedish folklore, Oknytt is good enough to warrant your attention, though it won’t blow you away.

  • There's nothing to criticize in terms of Oknytt's visual and sound qualities. However, problems reveal themselves while playing the game. Its puzzles are far too simple, and its rune system is downright dull. Both adventure game fans and Norse mythology lovers will scrape out some fun from Oknytt, but for the rest of you there's just a good-looking and good-sounding drag.
