About Northern Lights

Northern Lights is a survival game set in an open world environment and played from a first-person perspective. The game takes place in the Siberian wilderness where the player assumes the role of a forest ranger, sent on a mission to investigate the disappearance of a crew in charge with a secret facility, whose contact with homeland was lost due to mysterious weather conditions. This is the core experience of Northern Lights. In less than a second, you find yourself helpless in front of the ruthless arctic nature. Stranded far from any human habitation, you have to endure the harsh arctic conditions, hunt for supplies, explore the abandoned world and find a way to escape the island.

The objective is to survive as long as possible by scavenging and using whatever resources they may find within the world. This includes commodities such as food, water, materials, medicine, and tools such as weapons, axes, knives, and a myriad of other items. Wildlife is also present in the form of ferocious predators such as Bears and Wolves that may attack on sight, to non-threatening animals such as the Reindeer, Moose, Foxes, Boars and Hares that may only attack if provoked. Tools and items degrade over time, forcing the player to make careful decisions regarding their condition and their eventual need for repair. Fire, being a primary component, is necessary for warmth and cooking. In his journey, the player will often contract afflictions and diseases, forcing him to think twice before eating a meat raw or consuming an unknown plant.
