"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. It is up to Rune Knudsen, a Norwegian biologist, to take on a desperate struggle against fear and death, and to face the primordial force lurking in the icy wastes."

Alpha Polaris is an old-school adventure game focusing on restrained horror themes such as isolation, friendship and paranoia. Originally published in 2011, the game was developed by Turmoil Games, an indie game studio situated in Lapland, Finland. It features professional voice-acted dialogues, hand-drawn dialogue portraits and an original soundtrack.

The game was well received by the adventure gaming community:

"At the end of the day, 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." -Alexander Lucard, DiehardGameFan

"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."

- John Walker, Rock, Paper, Shotgun
