The Tartarus Key

Entrant 2022

Vertical Reach


Delve deep into the darkness of a mysterious mansion in search of a way out in this ominous, story-driven, escape-room-inspired horror adventure. As Alex Young, you awaken to find yourself trapped in a dark room, with your only guide: a cynical voice on the other end of a portable radio. As you move from room to room, solving puzzles and rescuing others like yourself, it quickly becomes apparent that there's something truly rotten lurking at the heart of this place. But what's the real nature of it? And will you and your unlikely - and, perhaps, untrustworthy? - allies live to find out?

Inspired by the look and feel of classic horror games, The Tartarus Key serves up a mystery filled with twists and turns, and more than a few deadly surprises. Turn down the lights and turn up the volume to immerse yourself in a tense, atmospheric horror narrative with multiple endings, without any stressful combat or chase sequences.
