DescriptionIn Alpha Polaris the player takes control over Rune Knudsen, a member of a research team in Greenland. They are on the search for oil wells but they also find tracks from an ancient Inuit legend regarding an demon. And so the classical horror story of isolation, nightmares and human stress unfolds...
The game itself uses the traditional point & click interface of its time and takes place in modeled backgrounds with static camera angles. The puzzles are mostly inventory based and focus on physical and technical science. Other puzzles require decrypting the meaning of Inuit symbols - the solutions have to be typed in with the keyboard. Another important part of the game is interacting with the other characters in multiple choice dialogues: the capitalist who is in for the money, the scientist and the Inuit love interest. To help the player there is the possibility to display all spots on a screen which can be interacted with.
