DescriptionThe Viking Union has a very dominant role in your society, as they control the vast railway networks. Could they be to blame for the disappearance of the sun and the resultant ice age? As a train captain, you must find out and overthrow them.
Transarctica is a strategic trading and combat game. You must keep your train running and make sure there is enough fuel. When you reach towns you can trade with local people, with each city having a primary function. These towns often contain useful information to put you on the right track in your mission. You are in possession of slaves, who are traded just like other commodities.
Contact with other trains results in combat. Buy upgrades to boost your performance in combat, to increase your chance of fending off the Viking Union.

StoryThe story is based on a series of French novels by author Georges-Jean Arnaud called La Compagnie des Glaces (the Ice Company), in which debris from an explosion of the moon is blocking sunlight from reaching Earth, resulting in a new ice age. After centuries of barbarism, powerful companies are ruling the world and the remaining cities on Earth are connected by extended rail networks.
