Icebound is a dark fantasy visual novel that takes place in a steampunk world locked in the depths of an ice age, where alchemists possess supernatural powers. It features puzzles and a non-linear story of adventure and mystery.
On the harsh and unforgiving world of Permia, two races, human and feran, share a fragile peace. In the north resides the Holy Empire, whose machinery and society both run like clockwork, and in the south, the Council, a powerful alliance of tribes who have mastered the spiritual arts. In this world, there exists the ability to manipulate the forces of nature - only those who can master their training and tame a Familiar can receive the title of "alchemist".
A wandering alchemist named Dougal winds up in the isolated town of Isenbarr with his Familiar, Isaac, hoping to earn some much-needed money. But when he stumbles across a potentially lucrative bounty offered by a master alchemist and his clockwork servant, he must match wits with three eccentric residents to obtain the legendary Philosopher's Stone.
In his search for a deadly monster, Dougal discovers truths that might be better off hidden, and a striking secret agent whose mission is all but clear. Could Agent Lamia really need Dougal's help, or is she after the Philosopher's Stone as well...?
