    During the maneuvers at the Barents Sea a Russian submarine Komsomoletz II unexpectedly crashes down. The intelligence found out that hours before the catastrophe the submarine swam out of the submarine boats cemetery in the Franz Josef Land. A closer look at the area revealed a military complex containing laboratories built for an unknown purpose. They also found out they are under control of Jacek Parecki, one of the best DNA scientist all over the world - genius and morally rotten.

    Two agents in black find White Fox on the floor. The hero who once saved the world has been drinking for over two years. Will he manage to approach Parecki once again?

    The action of Aurora Watching takes place in the Arctic. All the locations are situated on the iceberg, in the laboratory underneath the iceberg, and in the flooded Russian submarine. During the mission White Fox faces not only human opponents, each of which can be defeated in many ways. The game features two camera modes - one for easy tactical planning, and the other one for real combat. Mini-games, puzzles, and hi-tech gadgets keep player excited from the very beginning till the end.

    Aurora Watching incorporates RenderWare Physics for dynamic mini-games, and high performance human body simulation. Pixel shaders, and scene post-processing techniques result in never seen before visual quality, while keeping reasonable hardware requirements. The music dynamically changes according to the gameplay style, emphasizing the atmosphere even more.
