Ord is a minimalist text adventure told three words at a time. Embark on a quest to defeat an evil warlock and find yourself confronted with a series of (more or less) serious decisions. Death is just one choice away, but do not worry - next time will be different. You can try again. And again. - Fast-paced storytelling. - Multiple endings. - Lots of secrets.
