Explore time and space, influence character decisions, and change history

A Mystical Game in the Canadian Far north
Set off on a mystical journey to the Canadian Far North with Inua: a story in ice and time, a point & click narrative adventure spanning multiple eras.
Meet Taïna, a present-day reporter determined to discover the truth behind the disappearance of the Terror, one of the ship of the Franklin expedition whose goal was to explore the Arctic in the 19th century. Her destiny is mysteriously linked to that of Peter, a young filmmaker covering a military expedition in the 1950s and Simon, a sailor of the Franklin expedition struggling to keep his crew alive.

Navigate through time to discover what links them together. Search for ideas, instill them in the characters' minds and guide them toward Nanurluk, the mythical polar bear who lived 10 000 years ago.

A Mystical Time Travel Experience
Go on an adventure in the far North of Canada, navigate through the ages, and interact with the past to change the present. In Inua, you’ll need to unravel space-time to solve mysteries and guide the characters on their journey. Move from scene to scene, era to era, and uncover events of the past, unearthing new ideas that influence the characters' minds. Help Simon, Peter, and Taïna overcome the obstacles standing in their way, and change the course of history.

A Historical Saga

The fate of this expedition is still largely unknown. Gather clues and discover its history!

Incredible art, excellent story-telling

I had saved this game for a long flight with no wifi and had no idea how entranced I would be. What incredible illustrations! What innovative gameplay! What a dark but important story!

Truly, this game should have gotten many rewards. Yes the "gameplay" is really just a mechanism to tell the story, but it does so in a way that I have never encountered before. So many apps are just bad copies of each other: there are few as innovative as this one.

Well done, I hope to see more work from this company. Thanks for making the game!

Great game!

I love this game and I think it was totally worth the money! There are a lot of mysteries that you can solve and I love that you can interact with things and people. There are some mysteries that are really hard to solve, but I think that is what makes it fun. I wasn't having any problems with the gameplay, and I wasn’t experiencing any lag or bugs that need to be fixed at all! I love the soundtrack, and I think it goes perfectly with the game. I also love the story behind all of the mysteries.

Absolutely phenomenal game!

The game itself is a masterful blend of history and myth to tell a tale outside of the bounds of time. The game element of entering people’s minds and hearing their thoughts progressed the story in a thoughtful, free, and inductive way.
It played very well on my iPhone 13 and the stunning visuals were showcased beautifully. The auto-save function was convenient and kept the game feeling immersive.
I would 100% recommend this game if you like interesting stories and stupendous visuals.
