About Ice-Bound

"Ice-Bound" combines cutting-edge combinatorial narrative with a nested, recursive story inspired by writers like Nabokov and books like "House of Leaves." The player uses a printed book filled with story fragments and distorted images to shape a novel of polar explorers, and collaborate with a long-dead writer's digital ghost.



Developer Info

Down to the Wire is Aaron A. Reed (Blue Lacuna; Prom Week; 18 Cadence) and Jacob Garbe (From Closed Rooms, Soft Whispers). A true collaboration, both creators contributed to all aspects of the project: code, writing, art, and design.
