Reviews

“Considering the amount of average visual novels cluttering digital distribution lately, it’s exciting to see Icebound come along. [...] Anyone looking to get wrapped up in an entertaining storyline for a weekend should give this a read.”
4/5 – Hardcoregamer

“The story in Icebound is very strong and well-written. [...] I had a difficult time pausing my gameplay, not unlike how caught up I get when reading an interesting book. [...] Icebound is a well written example of what crowdfunding can achieve.”

“I’ve had a blast playing Icebound. [...] It’s a high-quality gem of a game, and a must for the fantasy VN enthusiast.”
9/10 – Bluebird Plays

About This Game

Icebound is a steampunk fantasy visual novel and puzzle game in a world that has fallen into the depths of a thousand-year ice age. Alchemy is a very real ability to manipulate the forces of nature and machines run using clockworks and steam. Humans have united under the Empire, a mighty continent-wide government that seeks to harness the power of alchemy, while the horned race of ferans lives in tenuous peace.

A wandering alchemist named Dougal, and his icebat Familiar, Isaac, wind up in Isenbarr, an isolated frontier town that is about as cold as you can get. But, when he tries to get a job, he stumbles upon a mysterious challenge with a potentially priceless reward, and several other alchemists vying for the prize. He must use all the alchemical skills at his disposal in order to defeat the monster plaguing the town and prove himself worthy. Unfortunately for him, this seemingly straightforward task turns out to be anything but.
