In a galaxy at the other end of the universe, on a planet called VERMIS, there are creatures so fearsome that it overwhelms all human imagination. Beings so wise and highly technologized that the very brightness of their aura would instantly shred our human eyes ... no, not really;)

The inhabitants of this planet are worms! But pretty clever ones. Among others, one of them is called 'Technologician'. And he discovered by means of a self-invented and self-built seismograph that the volcano 'Mount Spit' on the central island 'Residenco Volcano', that was believed to be dead for eons, may not be quite as dead as assumed. So the elders of the small island kingdom around Residenco Volcano decide to send out a brave hero to get an overview of the situation. As luck would have it (he, he) Looky gets the dangerous job. Why dangerous? Residenco Volcano is said to be inhabited by a folk of cannibals that is reason enough for all worms to not set a foot on this island (or more accurately: a tail, or tailtip, or … you know what I mean…).

You accompany Looky on his epic journey full of danger, screaming comedy and exquisite puzzles. Unravel the mysteries of a volcano that isn't one, a gone-nuts public enemy and the 'Barrier 51'!


Wormventures - Barrier 51 is the full game sequel to the 2007 freeware game Looky - The Adventure. Completely rewritten from scratch with 3D graphics, but classic point&click controls to have the best of both worlds.

It is solo-developed by Marcus Röckendorf who chose the virtual brand name Basement Society for his digital outcome, which resambles the live of being a solo developer as well as the place where this happens.

Awards & Recognition

  • No award yet, but aiming at!

    - Marcus Röckendorf (Developer Imposter), January 25, 2022

  • I made this game to secretly mine Bitcoins on the players computers, but I don't know a s**t about crypto currencies, mining and all those things, so it just became the best point&click adventure game available.

    - Marcus Röckendorf (Developer Imposter), some time in the future

Selected Articles

  • Looky – Das Adventure Part 1 ist ein aufwendig und liebvoll produziertes Freeware Adventure, dass sich vor den "Großen" nicht zu verstecken braucht.

  • Looky - Das Adventure ist eigentlich mit keinem Spiel so wirklich zu vergleichen. Es hat seinen ganz eigenen Stil, überzeugt durch die detailreiche Grafik und einer interessanten Geschichte, in der es an Humor nicht hapert.
