Description

Another game in Infogrames' line of H. P. Lovecraft inspired games started by Alone In the Dark, Prisoner of Ice puts you in the role of Lt. Ryan, an American agent stationed aboard the submarine H.M.S. Victoria on a rescue mission to the Antarctic. The Victoria picks up two mysterious crates during the course of the rescue. Before you know it the Captain is eaten alive by the cargo, a horrific monster with whom you are trapped aboard the submarine. And that's just the start of your problems.

Prisoner of Ice features a very simplified version of the classic adventure game interface, where you can left click with the cursor to operate an object or right click to look at it. The program won't let you do anything with these objects, other than the few appropriate actions needed to advance the game.

Trivia

This game is the sequel to Shadow of the Comet, although the continuity won't be apparent until the last 1/4 of the game. Two major characters from the first game show up about that time, and there's even a brief cameo by Lord Boleskine himself.

Prisoner of Ice is loosely based on the H.P. Lovecraft short story "Mountains of Madness" where an American expedition to the Antartic uncovers horrible creatures entombed in slabs of ice as well as a massive lost city beneath the Antartic snow. The game takes place several years after the story during WW II with Nazis having established a secret research base over the site of the lost city.
