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.

Frequently Asked Questions:


Q: What is Interactive Fiction?

A: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/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.
