Creaks starts with strange noises behind the walls. Soon, you’re confronting avian folk and deadly furniture monsters. This game, which debuted Friday on Apple Arcade, is a puzzle adventure with hand-painted visuals and eerie original music.

Take on a plethora of puzzles

Amanita Design, the developer of this new title, says, “Something rather unusual is happening right behind the walls of your very room. Equipped with nothing but wit and courage, you slowly descend into a world inhabited by avian folk and seemingly deadly furniture monsters.“

Creaks offers dozens of puzzles to solve while listening to a score by Hidden Orchestra. The developer recommends using a controller and headphones.

Creaks is now on Apple Arcade

This single-player adventure game is available for iPhone, iPad and Apple TV. But Creaks is only for subscribers to Apple Arcade. This subscription gaming service also comes with over 100 other games costs $4.99 a month. There are no other costs, as Apple bans in-app purchases, ads and loot boxes.

Previously, Amanita Design created Machinarium, which earned numerous awards and accolades. The company also introduced Pilgrims on Apple Arcade in 2019.
