About Little Orpheus

The year is 1962 and NASA is trying to put a man on the moon. In a remote corner of Siberia, a Soviet cosmonaut is heading in the other direction. Ivan Ivanovich is dropped into an extinct volcano in his exploration capsule, Little Orpheus, to explore the centre of the Earth. He promptly vanishes. Three years later he emerges claiming to have saved the world. 

Join Ivan as he explores lost civilizations, undersea kingdoms, prehistoric jungles and lands beyond imagination. Little Orpheus is a fantastical side-scrolling adventure game for casual players and seasoned adventure fans alike, inspired by classic movies such as Flash Gordon, Sinbad and The Land that Time Forgot. 

This definitive edition of the multi-award-winning Apple Arcade hit from master storyteller The Chinese Room is rebuilt and remastered for the big screen with hi-res textures, new animations, and enhanced graphics and effects. Little Orpheus for PC and consoles also features the bonus ninth episode - A Rush of Onion to the Head - and the Lost Recordings Mode from the original release.  

“We’re excited to bring Little Orpheus to more people than ever,” said James Schall, Director of Publishing at Secret Mode. “Launching Little Orpheus on PC and consoles with a host of new features gives us the opportunity to introduce our beloved (and often hapless) explorer to adventure game veterans and brand-new players alike. We can’t wait for fans to suit-up and join us on this once in a lifetime journey.”

Little Orpheus is out now on Steam, Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
