Story

After what was supposed to be a routine excursion from the TUNDRA ECOSYSTEM RESEARCH STATION, field scientist Jay Carson finds himself in a cave with nothing but the half-frozen, mangled remains of his fellow researcher Palmer. 

His memory is cloudy and his senses are in disarray... who could have done this?

Shocked and horrified, Carson heads back towards the research station to seek help, but it soon becomes clear that all is not as it once was.

The sounscape in this game is really important. It's a bit 'walking simulator'-ish but the treads in the snow and the envrionmental sounds really paint the picture.

Also, the suspense is great. Personally, I do find a certain aspect about the 'creatures' (for want of a better term) a little comedic in the grand scheme of things.

It's also a little short. I'd love more storyline and content. I'd definitely be interested to keep playing and see more!

EDIT: One interesting little bug(?) I found is if you go into the inventory and hammer the 'enter' button it'll slowly darken the screen. To get it back you need to press 'x' a few times.
