About

Haven Moon will transport you to a mysterious world where you have to explore abandoned islands and solve their secrets to find a treasure. In this Myst-like game inspired by Jules Verne’s universe, use your senses and intelligence to find your way through secret passages and curious machinery.THE STORYYou are teleported to Seleos, the moon of the planet Menra. In front of you, a metal box opens, and inside, you find a note from Ektor Turren, the only survivor of a cataclysmic event that destroyed his world. In his note, he explains that he wishes to leave you the treasure that he accumulated during his whole life.

From that, you'll have to explore the islands on Seleos to discover who was Ektor Turren, what happened to him and to his world, where to find the treasure and how to go back home with it.GAMEPLAYThe gameplay is based on exploration, observation, listening and problem solving. With the story’s help, you’ll have to solve puzzles that are integrated in the environment in order to reach the end of this adventure.

You can take all the time you want to explore and solve the puzzles. No one will come bother you here. The puzzles are neither too hard nor too easy, just like the length of the adventure is neither too long nor too short. Everything has been balanced to provide a relaxing experience and pleasant time spent in an imaginary world.

FEATURESIntuitive puzzles
The puzzles that you will encounter in Haven Moon are completely integrated into the environment and in perfect harmony with the story. They have been designed with great care to give a natural and intuitive user experience.

Very simple and intuitive interface
The game has been made to be accessible to all kinds of players. The interface and controls have been carefully designed to be as simple and intuitive as possible, featuring a mouse-only gameplay: the entire game uses mouse navigation. Move it to look around, left-click to move forward and interact, and right-click to move backwards. That's it!
(For those who prefer WASD style controls, it's still possible to configure keyboard controls from the input menu although this is contrary to the game design).

High quality graphics
Haven Moon features high quality 3D real-time graphics, offering complete freedom of movement in a detailed and realistic environment.
(A "light" option can be used to play the game smoothly on computers running on minimum system requirements).

High quality original soundtrack
To bring a fascinating mood and beautiful emotions to the game, Hollywood composer Leo J. Russlan exclusively composed a wonderful orchestral cinematic music for Haven Moon, making the experience even more captivating.

A game for everyone
Haven Moon is a tranquil game dedicated to contemplation and reflective thinking. It's a calm and solitary place where you hear the sounds of the sea, the wind and the beautiful music. You have all the time you want to explore and solve the various puzzles.20 YEARS IN THE MAKINGIt took me more than 20 years to create this game. From the first time I played Myst sometime between 1994 -1995, when I was a teenager, recreating the same experience has become an obsession. During all these years, I have tried many times to build my own Myst-like game, but it's only 3 years ago that everything coincided to make Haven Moon possible.
This project represents not only 3 years of real hard work, but also a huge part of my life. The journey leading to the release of this game was incredible.
I absolutely loved working on Haven Moon and I was very lucky it turned out exactly the way I had imagined it. So now I really hope that you will have as much pleasure playing it as I had creating it.

Haven Moon reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
A Homage to Myst with Potential. Due to some negative Rating I was sceptical, now in the Summer Sale I clicked the buy button and did not regret it. Even if not everything is perfect, the Game offered me, by and Large, what I expected: Myst feeling. Pro The Game world is great and it's Fun to explore it. The Controls are flawless and background music and Sound effects provide a suitable Atmosphere. There is not much to be faulted in graphics and sound, I only noticed little things, e.g. a Texture flickered, some Light Reflections seemed somehow strangely unnatural (but both can also be due to my System) or the Music made it difficult to Hear a Sound Effect, which is important For a Puzzle (I may have only overlooked the Volume controller For the Background Music). The faulted Brevity of the Duration of the game can be found good or bad; For €2 (in the Summer Sale) I had 3 Hours of good Entertainment, a great Price-/performance ratio. The fact that you can easily dust off 100% of the Achievements is a nice Bonus on top of that. I would also like to Praise the fact that Linux has been taken into account in the supported Operating Systems. But now to the where Haven Moon definitely still has potential Upwards: Con Maybe I'm only too doof to understand the Puzzles, but sometimes I felt like the Ox in front of The mountain and even when I had once got a Tip on the Net I wondered how it should have been found or what the Logic behind it is. Two Examples where it's especially true: I haven't been able to figure out what to recognize a defective Capacitor-the Cause of the "erratic current"-on "Cannon Island." I read the Notes again, looked again at the Map of "Cannon Island," looked again if Capacitors look defective and heard what strange Noises make, but ultimately I Had to Consult the Solution, because stupid for me not in Question came. The Logic behind the Coordination system for Determining Positioning Has not opened up to me. I Assume that the concentric Circles on the Map mean "Island Installations," the Teleporter on "Telescope Island" is the Center and 0 ° is upward vertically, about to the Center of "Laboratory Island," then the Beacon Would have to be there at about 5 °, the Teleporter ( So if I have understood correctly the Signal source) are around 390 °. But why can both be seen at 0 °, only under different Height angles? Again, I had to look for some Trying out in the Solution-too bad, I liked the Puzzle especially at first. The fact that the Game ignores the Language Setting of Steam And the Operating System (both English in my case) is also somehow unwisely solved. Until I found out that you can change the Language without a New start or installation, I played in German instead of English and can now also say something about the Translation: This is really bumpy and therefore sometimes quite incomprehensible. Example: "Once triggered" in English Is in English: "If you leave the knops on ..." Um... Exactly;-) I find a little of a shame that Drawers and Cupboards are not to open and books cannot be read. This is not necessary for the Game, but it would make the World more detailed-for example, you could not show more protected works in the books if you store them in pure Text and display them with a nice Font, the Storage Space requirement is likely to be displayed. Negligible. Admittedly, you would have to come up with something with the Cursor or the Clues, because at the moment everything you can interact with Is important for Advancing. Conclusion At Haven Moon a Lot has been done right and if you want to experience the Atmosphere of Myst again for a few Hours, you will get your Money's worth here.
