Faithful port of 1998 Morpheus by Soap Bubble Productions in HTML5.
Morpheus was the last title released by Piranha Interactive before shutting down. Soap Bubble Productions (the company which produced the game) was never paid for the sold copies and only 50,000 copies were printed. An international release was in the works and Tiburon Interactive (which was made up of ex-Piranha employees) licensed the game for an international release where it was localized for German, French and Spanish. Soap Bubble Production was not able to find another publisher and was disbanded shortly afterwards.
Fast forward 15 years later I was annoyed that I was not able to play Morpheus on a 64bit machine so I started rewriting it. I actually got a semi-working version in C++. Then my wife was diagnosed with Stage III Cancer and I put away that work for a couple of years. She was eventually treated and after 18 months of chemo, radiation and surgeries I picked up the project again. However for many reasons I abandoned the C++ port and started over with a remake as a web game which can be seen at https://soapbubble.online.
I am currently using the original assets from the released CD which are really bad by today’s standards due to being over compressed in order to fit on 3 CDs. I do have all of the original unmastered assets that I plan on remastering them once I am finished with the game.
