Solitaire Adventure in Canada’s Wilds

Alone Against the Frost is a solo horror adventure for one player, set during a research expedition to Canada’s Northwest Territories during the 1920s. Here, you choose your own path as you navigate through the story—your choices will determine whether you find success or failure!

You take on the role of Dr. L. C. Nadelmann, an anthropologist from the renowned Miskatonic University in Arkham, MA. Accompanied by three of your most gifted and practical graduate students, as well as an experienced local guide, you set off into the fabled valley of the North Hanninah in search of the anthropological discovery that will make your career and bring you fame. Or, so you hope. 

Your expedition members are: 

  • Dr. L. C. Nadelmann, an academic obsessed by early North American prehistory, myths, and legends, particularly in the Big Woods region.
  • Bernard Ebstein, a cherubic-looking native New Yorker, eager to experience life in the wilds before his upcoming marriage to his sweetheart, Catherine.
  • Sylvia Davidson, the latest in a long line of Boston Brahmins, destined for academic greatness thanks to her dedication and determination.
  • Norman Falkner, a mature, largely self-taught student whose calm nature acts as a steadying influence on those around him.
  • Charlie Foxtail, a cautious Tsuut’ina professional wilderness guide, hired to lead the expedition safely through the North Hanninah. 

But such a journey is fraught with difficulties, from dangerous white water to the superstitious beliefs of the region’s inhabitants—not to mention the wildlife! 

Will you manage to survive every challenge this hostile environment throws at you? Will your companions? Can you return with your reputation—and your sanity—intact? Only time will tell.

    Don't you just love it when you go on a research trip to the Canadian Wilderness, with a handful of your grad students and a knowledgeable guide, Expecting to Take in the sights, enjoy the brisk Canadian Air, maybe spot a moose or two; only to end up losing all your grad students and the guide, learn about ancient civilizations, go slightly mad, get shot at by potatoes, nearly drown several times before finally making it back home to only face a scrutiny from the parents of the grad students and their demands for your termination (see them try I got tenure[and luck points]) only to face the great depression and have your stories all be published in trashy tabloids along side "Bigfoot married my sister" type articles. Yea me too! Highly recommend!
