About

In NORTH you play a man who applies for asylum in a city filled with strange creatures and strange customs.

Dealing with the issue of the contemporary refugee crisis while at the same time being deeply rooted in a classical cyberpunk atmosphere à la Blade Runner, NORTH features a dark synthpop soundtrack, a sprawling mega-city and weird monster-like inhabitants.

The gameplay is very straightforward and mostly consists of exploration and simple puzzles. The main difficulty is to understand what you have to do in order to get asylum. You've come from an foreign land in the south and find yourself lost and confused - a confusion you convey through letters to your sister back home. An important part of the gameplay, these letters help you understand your tasks while at the same time moving the narrative of the game forward.

NORTH is short (20-40 min) and comes with a full soundtrack (8 songs).

NORTH reviews and comments

NORTH is a scary and depressing project. After a long game you can easily rip the bottom, but to prevent this guys from Outlands invented protection. After you turn off the game and then re-enable your save you will not find, simply because the game has no function of saving). So most likely you will not play again and poberezhete your nerves. The Gameplay is built on the search for refuge in the city inhabited by monsters. We have to scout the territory and solve simple puzzles to get refuge. An Important part of the gameplay-your sister's letters, they will help you understand your tasks, at the same time moving the game narrative forward. ATTENTION the game is not recommended to people with nervous disorders, the huge POHVIH vjku, Invalidam, Wagіtnem Zhinkam and the Pazigiram Z...

Intriguing game playing with the player, more than the player plays him. It Narrates in a metaforica way a simile of the situation of the refugees, persecuted where they go. In itself, the adventure is about beings of extraterrestrial appearance that Debén to live in a strange and dark city where there is a system that tries to indoctrinate them, they are constantly monitored, and in the slightest doubt they are crossed out of threat. The Adventure Graphically is well, narratively could have been polished something else, also made of less a menu in conditions and the possibility of saving. And as a whim a Spanish translation, there is not much text, but the letters are tired or can be misinterpreted. I ONLY RECOMMEND it if you can get it on a BUNDLE or this VERY CHEAP. It'S cheap and it's too walking simulator (without it)

NORTH-Sci-fantastic indie adventure with a small admixture of the puzzle, in which we prepared the role of a refugee from the south, caught by fate in a strange and strange and gloomy city in the north, inhabited by strange creatures. The Gameplay of the game is to explore the environment and get clues and items to further advance the story. Recommend carefully read the correspondence with the sister-this will give hints of what to do further to advance on the story, for which after receiving the item is necessary to approach the mailbox and click on it. The Graphics in the game is minimalist, but it only enhances the atmosphere of hopelessness, reigning in the city. The Soundtrack is grim, but pleasant, I liked it. Unfortunately, the game is not able to save, so I advise to keep this in mind when passing. Also a small minus is the lack of Russian localization, let's hope that the developers will add it in the future. In General, a very decent indie project with a good plot and a great gloomy otmosphere for little money. Recommend fans of gloomy indie projects and people who want to find a little bit in the atmosphere of a strange and mysterious city and learn its secrets. There are collectible cards In the game, unfortunately there are no achievements.
