A downloadable game for Windows

THE ORIGIN is a short adventure game which talks about the human being creation myth from a different perspective. What would happen if we discovered our true origin?

This prototype has been created by one person in a few weeks for Icehouse Jam 2019,  so may you find bugs and problems while playing.

Due to the lack of time, this experience is only a small part of the complete prototype, although its development ends here, it will not continue.

Mouse movement: Rotate camera / look around

Interact: Follow the screen messages

Zoom: Right mouse button

You can modify the mouse sensitivity and other parameters (like quality) in the "Options" menu.


The music has been composed by Python Blue.

Special thanks to Roger Kilroy-Talbot for his invaluable help.

Très bon jeu, dommage que ça s'arrête là. J'ai été bloqué à cet endroit sans pouvoir continuer ni retourner au menu.


Thanks for playing and I'm sorry to hear you got stuck... it's true the game has some bugs, I'm sorry.


no problem, the game is very well done.


It's a shame the game won't be continued, what you have here is good. Hope you consider coming back to it and adding more.

Thanks for the video and for your kind words 😊


Love the idea for the start to a game, the lore is interesting and compelling.  Too bad it ends as quick as it does, and doesn't have any plans of continuing.  But very good idea for a game.  This is the first game in the video 

Thank you very much for your kind words and for the video!
