The frozen wilderness surrounding the North (and South) Pole have always been a never-ending source of mystery. Many brave explorers died in trying to uncover their secrets.
And yet... there are very few works of Interactive Fiction which use the polar regions as a setting! Something needs to be done in order to fix this deplorable situation. Hence... this jam.
If you need inspiration:
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: What is Interactive Fiction?
Q: Can I use Twine (or are you a die-hard parser redneck?)
A: No problem whatsoever!
Q: Are inaccurate depictions of the polar regions prohibited?
A: Artistic licence is allowed. Up to a point. (The basic properties have got to be left intact: the polar regions are cold, icy, etc... but if you put penguins at the North Pole and polar bears at the South Pole, I won't make a fuss.)
EDIT: The end date has been changed. The game jam will now finish on July 16th, which happens to be Roald Amudnsen's birthday.
