    Dang that ending tho.R.I.P Dr.Prescoot.

    • R.I.P indeed, although some would say he had in coming πŸ˜›

  • MeongNdut

    the chewing and the burb sounds are hilarious!!

  • Oren Elmoznino

    How is Kevin supposed to return?

    • Milkwhiskers

      Maybe he swam back?I know it said no swimming but still or maybe the old man had a spare boat?

      • Or the Vortex Point crew (Craig & Caroline) rescued him πŸ™‚

        • Milkwhiskers

          Or that could have been possible..XD i just imagined Kevin swimming back and Caroline/Craig finds him and tries holding back her/his laughter.

  • Lemuel

    I was disappointed to see that the Vortex Point theme song was not played

    • Jake Terror

      IMO, the theme song kind of sucked. I did like the version that was supposed to be voted on for the fourth game though.

    • Hi Lemuel,
      The song did not play due to a technical glitch, by now it has been fixed.

  • pallavi srinivas

    Awesome as always…but I felt this was bit easy compared to other series of VP.

    • Umta-ta

      yeah, me too, the other games were more complicated.

      • You are correct, this one did turn out to be easier for a VP game, we’ll make sure the next games in the series will be more complicated.

  • Avatard

    This was the best ever. Brilliant. Lots of places, and I especially liked Professor Prescott’s lines. Class.

  • Avatard

    To those asking what’s the point and where’s the mystery: The point is that you found out that the supposed superstition was correct and the scientist was wrong. Imagine finding Nessie. Same thing. What bigger ending could there be?

  • Azur-le

    where is the theme song??? I was ready to sing….:(

    • he song did not play due to a technical glitch, by now it has been fixed. Sorry about that Azur-le!

      • Azur-le

        Cool! I love singing to the music

  • TJ

    Ok, first of all… I LOVED it!! The color and graphics were awesome, and I really enjoyed the fact that the music changed so much in different scenes. Storyline was great! The ending was superb! As always, you guys are fantastic! Vortex Point continues to be one of my favorites! πŸ™‚

    • Thank you Tammy! We agree on all your points, the one thing we’re not completely satisfied with is the game’s length, we’ll try to avoid that in future VP games πŸ™‚

  • Umta-ta

    where did you hide the clue which symbol to pick to find the code for opening the mausoleum?

    • Avatard

      The stars… constellations…. Look at the stars in graveyard scene.

      • Umta-ta

        thank you! πŸ™‚

    A M A Z I N G !!!!!!!!
    i just love it so much πŸ™‚
    keep the good work…

  • Alexander Raja

    Can I just say I am impressed! This game was DARK. I hope to see more stuff like this. Vortex Point is always great. Though, you really should think about some of the things your main characters do. Some of them are very bad but we’re supposed to still see them as heroes. For instance, in this one you basically robbed that gift shop owner blind and you also defiled the wife’s grave. But just nitpicking really. This was your best game yet. I loved the music and storyline.

    • Thank you for your feedback Alexander!
      Our protagonists (in many of our games) do some bad things here and there, it’s important to always remember it’s just game and nothing should be taken seriously, nor should the actions presented be reenacted in the real world, they’re mostly humorous πŸ™‚


        Too late. I already robbed a gift shop, defiled a stranger’s grave and was a passive accomplice to murder because of this game. Way to go, Carmelo!

  • Sakshi

    That was too SPOOKY….!!!
    Amazing game…Love ur games Carmelo… πŸ™‚

    • Thank you very much Sakshi!

  • Kohee Gurung

    dont you think craig or caroline should do stuff too?

    • Jake Terror

      They are doing stuff, Kevin’s just the field agent.

    • They take different parts in some of the games. We do agree that their parts should be both broaden and diversified, we will try to take care of it in future games, dividing the players parts between several characters instead of just one is a challenging creation process in several different aspects.

  • Mayank Agrawal
  • Mukta Roy

    wow nice and spooky game. loved playing

  • snowleaf

    great game! lovely new addition to the vortex point series!

  • Panda Kelly

    amazing game! Loved the old man and his story

  • VivianT

    There is a spelling mistake at the last part, I forgot the whole sentence but it was said by the old man, and ‘swamp’ was misspelled into ‘swam’.

    • Thank you Vivian for reporting his typo. We’ve noticed it and it will be fixed in the final (translated) version of the game.

      We saw it, Mayank, no need to post it five times

      • Irenne’s right, once is enough. We’ve deleted the other comments and left only this one.

  • Charly Gulati

    good ending

  • Anton Belyanin

    Could someone post a walkthrough video? Seems to be a shortage of them here

    • Taking care of this flood right now.

  • Cido Marques

    I missed music Vortex Point

    • Hi Cido,
      The song did not play due to a technical glitch, by now it has been fixed, sorry about that!

  • Avatard

    Monster? Professor’s wife is in the cemetery. The monster was created by science and is in the water.

  • Umta-ta

    ‘what strikes me as a bit odd, is that: after we learn the code for the mausoleum, they both go back on the boat. but why on earth would grumpy prof agree to join kev on this “humanitarian mission”? especially without protest?

    • He doesn’t know Kevin’s intentions, also if you’d click on him he will always complain πŸ™‚

  • RockyRockz

    i love vortex point games and all of your games keep it up

  • Hi Anton,

    Thank you for your feedback, we’ll take your criticism to our attention and we hope to reflect that in our future games (starting with Love Chase which is under heavy work).

    We never delete comments, even if we don’t like them (Unless they contain profanity, bullying, etc).

  • Thanks Anton πŸ™‚

  • Yay can’t wait to play this game and I hope it will be amazing Y(^_^)Y

  • VirgKiss

    YAY! I now heard the Vortex Point theme song, but why does the “Bloodburger” song from “Like Vampire Like Son” sound like the Vortex Point song? I can’t tell the difference between them.

    • They were created by the same singer and composer so that’s probably why they’re so similar πŸ™‚

  • Vanessa Hinamori

    Uhm did anyone discuss the fact that while helping the diner lady there is a glitch where you can’t move the boxes, does anyone have that issue or is it just Mousecity’s game isn’t updated yet

    • Hi Vanessa,

      Are you trying to drag the boxes? If so, please try just clicking on them and they’ll become drag-able on their own. Please let us know if this helped or not.

  • VirgKiss

    Carmelo can you please write down into a reply both the Vortex Point and the Bloodburger song (from Like Vampire Like Son)?

    • Do you mean the lyrics?

      • VirgKiss


        • In the town of Vortex Point
          You never know what you might see
          Witchcraft, ghosts and UFOs
          Everything’s creepy
          Kevin Craig and Caroline
          Investigating paranormal crime
          In the town of Vortex Point
          Yeah the town of Vortex Point

  • Cupcake WizaRD

    Wow, that was shorter than expected! And very easy. But I was happy Dr. what’s-his-name died at the end because I didn’t like him πŸ˜›

    VP 7 didn’t really have any mystery… that I am sad of. However, the old man’s story does answer why those who go deeper in the swamp never return. That I guess is a mystery after all.

    Great game as always! I do hope VP 8 will be longer, as well as the other games to come. :3

    • VP8 will be longer for sure, in addition our next game (Love Chase) will be the longest we’ve had so far πŸ™‚

      • Cupcake WizaRD

        I’m looking forward to it πŸ˜€

  • VirgKiss

    there should be an alternate version of the sorting puzzle in the Swamp Dinner

    • We’re open to ideas πŸ™‚

      • VirgKiss

        Such as a rolling puzzle where the items are already placed, but in a wrong look. So we need to flip them

        • Sorry mate but it’s too late for any changes now, the viral version of the game has already been released (2 days ago) :

  • Agus Corderos

    DescubrΓ­ estos juegos hace mas de tres aΓ±os y entro siempre desde entonces deseando que hayan subido uno nuevo. Son excelentes! Gracias por los aΓ±os de diversiΓ³n. Saludos desde Argentina

  • Takkun Genkyo

    hmmm in the song the town population is down to 666 that can only mean more trouble is coming

  • pranamika love

    HEY…! What happened next…? What happened to that man..?

    • The swamp monster ate him πŸ˜›

  • VirgKiss

    I’d like to see a SH3. Who stole Kaitlyn’s grandmother’s money?

    • There will be a 3rd Sherlock Holmes, although as of now we have no idea when.

  • VirgKiss

    To evade an “it doesn’t work”, if you try to drink the guy’s milkshake in the gift shop, Kevin should say: “That’s a good idea, but if he doesn’t see me it would be better.”

    • Actually it doesn’t say “it doesn’t work” when you try to take the milkshake. Instead, the guy says: “Keep your filthy hands off my milkshake!”

      • VirgKiss

        When you try to drink it in the gift shop.

        • Oh, you’re right! We’ll change it πŸ™‚

  • The Taki King

    Great game again. I would like to see a full featured and long game of Vortex Point one day!

    • Thank you! And we’re sure we’ll make it happen some day πŸ˜€

  • ron

    if u could make a game on turkey or japan

    • Possibly, there will be another Skip Around the World game, or more. One of these will might be his next destination.

      • ron


      • ron

        well then i will b waiting

  • kae

    how do you find the password for the little shack?

    • Above the old man lying in bed there’s a sign. The solution is the 2nd from the top on the right side.


    Great game! πŸ˜€

  • Vicktoria17

    oi eu falo portugues adoro os jogos da qui nunca trava Γ© muito legal e interessante vc aprende varis coisas

  • Ganon12788

    That was a great game just like the others. I’m just disappointed we didn’t get to see what the monster looked like.

    • Imagine something similar to the Loch Ness Monster πŸ™‚

      • Ganon12788

        Thanks. That sounds awesome.

  • Khaalisah Khairulanuar

    I don’t know if I’m right but I remember there was an early version of Vortex point 7 that showed the selfish “explorer” being devoured by the monster…

    • Hi Khaalisah,

      The ending is still as you said. Unless you meant the the devouring act is actually shown graphically, in which case the answer’s no, this was never the case.

  • abdul haseeb

    Hi pals at Carmel,
    Could you please let me know the track which is where Kevin & prof are outside gift shop/diner? (Before heading into the swamp)
    I thought it to be “Niles Blue” or “Midnight Mystery”, but naah…
    Please tell as I cant it out of my head😜
