is now completely free to own
, as the price of this Windows adventure was reduced to nothing a
couple of weeks ago (thanks Ant
). This is thanks to the
that its developer is closing their doors: "As Turmoil
Games is closing, we have now made Alpha Polaris free. The game means a lot to
us and we hope people continue to enjoy it far to the future. For all that have
supported us: thank you!" Here's word on the game:
In the midst of the
snowfields of Greenland lies Alpha Polaris, an American oil research station.
High above, the ion storm of the century is gathering, bringing about a strange
intermixing of reality and night terrors...
Alpha Polaris is an old-school adventure game focusing on character-driven
horror and environmental themes. Previously released worldwide in retail, the
game features professional voice-acted dialogues, hand-drawn dialogue portraits
and an original soundtrack.
Alpha Polaris was developed by Turmoil Games, an indie game studio situated in
Finnish Lapland, making the game an authentic Arctic production. Developed
during two long and dark Finnish winters, inspiration for the game was drawn
from such sources as inuit legends, Cthulhu mythos and the very real blight
polar bears face today.
