TARAKAN - Mystery Point & Click Adventure


During a recent local walk you discover a secret base in the forest, your adventurous side decides to investigate further. Your inquisitive nature pays off with the discovery of a submarine docked by the river.

Could the submarine transport you to more mysterious places, maybe even help unravel the puzzle of what is happening? What is a private business doing with a submarine in the first place? This seems very puzzling.

Along with the mysterious discovery of the unmarked buildings you decide there is only one way to continue the adventure, with the coast seemingly clear, you set about solving the first puzzle and finding a way into the submarine…


TARAKAN is a first person point and click graphic puzzle adventure, similar to games you may have played in the ’90’s or similar to a virtual escape rooms you may have played. A simple gameplay interface consisting of the world that you explore and an inventory panel where you can collect, combine and use items you find along the way to solve puzzles.

Игра называется Таракан. Я бы хотел играть, но с текстами на русском языке. Это возможно или нет? Petite question avant achat. Merci ++

Эти игры субтитры не на русском языке. Однако, несмотря на это, в игру можно играть.

Понял. Но почему называть эту игру Таракан если не существует на русском?

Ne réponds pas, c'est pour plaisanter :)

Вдохновением для игры послужил остров Таракан: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tarakan

Ах! Я не знал, что есть остров Таракан. Я подумал, что вы подразумеваете Таракан, то есть с франзуского "un cafard" (or in English - a cockroach). On en apprend tous les jours. Bien vu ++

I got lost in this game for a few hours. The puzzles are challenging but not overly so. Definitely worth a few bucks. Nice work M9 GAMES!

Really glad you enjoyed my game! Means a lot when someone plays and has fun, makes all the hours, days, weeks and months all worth while 😀
