A downloadable game for Windows


This is a (very short) point-and-click adventure game I made in 3 weeks for the Icehouse jam 2019. 

It is the story of Icarus, son of the genius architect and inventor Daedalus. Daedalus built the famous Labyrinth on Crete that holds the Minotaur. Icarus helps his friend Ariadne to help Theseus, hero of Athens, to kill the Minotaur. Minos, king of Crete, doesn't like this at all...

Fine game endeed :-

thank you!
I'm planning (for ages now...) to add some more animations, change the music and make a web-version for it. Some day I wil... ;-)

Thanks for the download link !

Hello Esmeralda,

is it possible to play your Game in Browser?

Best Regards

Hi. This game has no html5 version at the moment. Building for html5 was not possible at the time I made the game because of a shader I used. There were some updates of the engine in the meantime, so I need to check if it's working now. (I have been putting this off because I wanted to change the music and add some animations ... and haven't got around doing so )

A beautiful game. We enjoyed it very much.

Thanks a lot for playing my little game. I'm really glad you had fun with it :-


My favorite game from the Icehouse Jam. Great idea giving the story of Icarus a different, sweet, twist. :)


Thanks so much for playing! I am glad you liked it! ^^
