In one of the hottest summers in recent memory, Myriad Games’ narrative indie game is here to remind us of a time that was less scorching. Are you ready to discover a place Where the Snow Settles?
Where the Snow Settles is a short, narrative adventure following a girl named Aurelia as she journeys to find her way home. She needs to brave the cold winds and the snowy storms to make her way back, pushing back against the unknown.
Aurelia’s journey is introspective, quiet and sensitive as she wonders through the snowy wastelands. There’s also a tinge of the supernatural scatted throughout the game too as Aurelia finds and journeys with magical sprites.
Despite being alone and lost in the snowy wilderness, Where the Snow Settles sells itself on how it can be such a relaxing experience. The game has no violence and features low-demand gameplay. The interactivity comes from moving through the game’s magical, natural world, listening to character’s stories and experiencing this journey’s narrative.
Key features include:
- Embrace your curiosity and interact with the world around you to uncover its mysteries
- A concise and linear narrative, designed for easy escapism
- Dialogue allows you to listen and connect with characters in the world
- Evocative and beautiful art style
- Sits at the intersection of games/cinema/narrative

- Beautiful soundtrack that will make your heart swell
- Relax at home and enjoy a coming-of-age story that’s suitable for audiences of all ages
