Mörköpeli 2.2 and older versions are no longer available due to a copyright claim
It should not have been unclear that Mörköpeli's original theme included copyrighted material
which we had no permission to use from their respective holders.
In January 2018 we have been contacted concerning these copyright issues and we therefore removed the possibility to
download the game from our website. We respect the claim and obligation we have signed. This means that we are never going to give access to anybody to the old versions of Mörköpeli.

Mörköpeli is a survival horror game, which takes place in fictional place called Kuusilaakso. The player controls a lumberjack character called Jussi.
The game begins at a random location in dark wintry forest. The player must find a mystical stone and return with it to the starting location.
During this time a horrifying ice monster chases the player and freezes them if they manage to get caught.
Mörköpeli was our first decent 3D-project. It began as a joke while developing another game. The game is very simple, but it has its addictive features.
Replay value comes from the randomly generated maps and the fact that you can always try to perform better and faster.
We have supported the game for years and added key features to it along the way. The game in its current state is considered finished.
We will only make bug fixes and maybe some minor changes or additions.
Along with the main development team the following people took part in making this game:
Carita Hiltunen, Verneri Muukka, Franssi (YouTube), TheApproman (YouTube/Twitch)
Flow of the game
The flow of the game is simple: the player controls a lumberjack character Jussi. Jussi's mission is to search for a mystical stone in a dark and wintery forest.
Once found the mystical stone must be then carried back home to the starting position in order to win the game.
Jussi is haunted by a bogeyman called Rávdnár, who tries to grab Jussi and freeze him to death.
More specific instructions are provided within the game itself.
Hallow Woods game type
The player controls the familiar lumberjack character Jussi. Kuusilaakso's forests are teeming with zombie lumberjacks, who chase after Jussi and attempts to tear down his cottage.
The goal is to search and destroy 3 ritual sites, where these zombies are being summoned while at the same time keeping the cottage safe.
The game is won after there is not a single zombie lumberjack left in the forest.
The game features two new weapons and they are available to the player from the start: a hatchet and a shotgun.
Weapons can be switched with ,  and/or [mouse wheel] buttons. Weapons can be used with [space] and/or [mouse left] buttons.
The player can chop down trees with the hatchet, which gives the player logs. Logs can be deposited to a wood stack at the cottage. There the logs can be used to repair
the cottage and to build bonfire pallets. Bonfire pallets are neccessary for destroying the ritual sites. When a bonfire pallet has been created it can be deployed with [F]
button and it can be lit up with a beacon. Now the player has unlimited amount if beacons, but only one can be deployed at any given time. Same goes for the bonfire pallets.
The player no longer has flares, normal gun or flashlight. Instead of flashlight the player now has a lantern which cannot be turned on and off at will.
The lantern is always lit given that the player has sufficient resources for it. The lanter can be recharged at the cottage.
Mutiplayer: ability to play via proxy server. This way neither player needs to forward their port in order to play or use virtual lan.
Multiplayer can still be played with direct connection like before and in lan direct play is preferred to minimize latency.
Unlockable items: All possible unlocks such as golden gun, golden hatchet and flood mode are visible in this new menu.
One new unlockable item has been added and one existing one has been altered. Before the super weapon could only be used until the game was turned off, but now it can be toggled on and off
once it has been unlocked for the first time. The new item is golden skin for the super weapon.
Unlockable items and rune pages on login: before these were saved locally and still are, but they can be unlocked after a fresh install again
if the account has achievements unlocked associated with rune pages and unlockable items. For instance having loremaster achievement will unlock all rune pages on login.
Achievements: two additional achievements have been added for the most committed players!
More easter eggs because why not? :v_smirk:
Similar confirmation menu in single- and multiplayer like in the main menu when pressing ESC-button.
Field of view: lowest value set to 40 from 70 - added indication of horizontal fov in the settings menu as the game uses fov value for vertical setting.
Multiplayer: balance changes. The bogeyman gained 1.5 - 8% speed increase depending on the situation the players are in. Also the bogeyman's energy depletes
slightly slower. The bogeyman gained two new abilitis. Firstly it now can perform a side step action with Q and E buttons to avoid incoming fire from Jussi. Secondly it can pick up Slush Traps once they are set
with F button.
Hallow Woods: Ritual site HP regeneration rate has been adjusted in a way that the final site regains its HP slower when the bonfire pallet is extinguished.
This makes the game mode more forgiving especially on brutal difficulty.
Various small changes, bug fixes. The most important bug fixes are described below:
Floodmode bug where the Flood units moved faster with higher refresh rate has been fixed.
Login forms for username/email and passwords no longer activate with space key.
Password encryption before sending it to server has changed a bit to accommodate few special characters that previously caused a problem in login.
This should alleviate the problem for most users.
