Your name is Yerik Elnar and you are a scientist working for United States. In late 2009 ruins were found in Antartica by Russian explorers; A year later a complete research base was built to study the findings. The team consisted of 14 scientists and army men. One year later you are sent as additional help. But almost immedatly upon arrival strange things begin to happen...
A interesting and great looking point and click adventure, somewhat reminiscent of The Dig in terms of atmosphere and setting. Good solid puzzles, interesting plot, OK (if a tiny amount badly translated) dialogue, terrific still backgrounds, and surprisingly even great and numerous cutscenes. Definitely a title to check out if you like AGS games.
