In "Terranigma", you play as young boy named Ark. He has grown up in his little village, isolated from the outer world by a stream of lava, and he has never seen anything else beside it. One day, he and some other boys hear mysterious voices coming from beyond a door that the village elder forbade them to open. Unable to resist the temptation, the boys open the door, and Ark finds a box with a strange creature inside. By opening the box, Ark damages the balance between two co-existing worlds, and all the village people are turned to stone. Now, Ark has to embark on a dangerous journey in order to find the five Towers, seek the answers to his questions, and liberate his people from a terrible curse.
