    Midwinter is a deep and compelling strategy game, original in concept and revolutionary in design.

    A new Ice Age grips the world and along with fellow pioneers you live on the Midwinter Isle, the last habitable oasis on earth. A very real threat looms large as invaders attempt to seize your sanctuary.

    Controlling up to 32 characters, you must defend an immense playing area of over 160,000 square miles. You can ski, hang-glide, snow-buggy or travel by cable car across stunning glacial landscape, shooting, sniping and sabotaging the intruders.

    Featuring a unique, 3D fully light-sourced graphics system and unprecedented action sequences, Midwinter will keep you locked in the Ice Age for a long, long time.
