Orogenesis Overview

Orogenesis, a turn-based exploration-focused adventure set in a strange world. Nostalgic flashbacks with a twist of nightmarish cosmic horrors! Read on for an overview.

Story of Orogenesis

A mountain uproots from the ground, and with it rains four powerful orbs from the sky. The world twists and malformed with the birth of this mountain, and within the dreams of all of its denizens lies a dark cosmic horror. The player takes control of “Dude”, simply described as a fat unproductive stoner. Tasked with gathering the four genesis orbs and unlocking the secrets to the mountain, you adventure alongside your “funky fresh weirdos”, Pipe and Tea, to conquer the troubling terrain of the world.
