A downloadable game for Windows

Explore a new alien world with your boat.

Ortus is a 3D exploration-driven puzzler developed for PC using Maya and Unity.

If you want to be immersed in an atmospheric environment whilst uncovering the lost knowledge of an alien race in a puzzler this is the game for you.
