Reviews

“In the meantime, if you’re jonesing for some adventuring, this is the most fun I’ve had in the traditional wing of the genre in a long time.”
Rock, Paper, Shotgun

“Turmoil’s Finns have created a game that is ambitious, adult, and genuinely scary. Drawing inspiration from old sources — Native American myths, 80′s horror movies, and 90′s adventure games — they have created a game that is modern in its storytelling sensibilities and brash originality.”
GameFront

“...despite being in a niche genre, Alpha Polaris is my pick for the best horror game of 2011 so far, largely due to the story, voice acting and ambience.”

About This 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.
