An adventure game from The Chinese Room, Little Orpheus is a sidescrolling epic that takes its cues from classic films like Flash Gordon for inspiration.

Play as Comrade Ivan Ivanovich, cosmonaut extraordinaire who will explore lost civilizations, undersea kingdoms, and prehistoric jungles. Ivan must battle the subhuman tribes of the Menkv, escape horrific monsters, and fight over impossible odds, all behind a backdrop filled with stunning visuals designed to look like a classic adventure movie. 

Little Orpheus was originally released by publisher Sumo Digital in 2020 for Apple Arcade, but received a console release in 2022 across the PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, and the Nintendo Switch.
