A downloadable game for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux

Winter's Wake is a single verb, text only adventure game with first person mouselook style controls. In it, you play as an adventurer who becomes trapped in a snowy mountain pass. Positional audio and background tinting provide orientation and support a sense of space and atmosphere as you explore and solve puzzles to uncover the valley's mysteries and find your way home.

Currently in-development, Winter's Wake is expected to be released in 2016 on Linux, Mac and Windows with support for VR headsets.
