    Review NORTH

    Freedom is slavery

    Science fiction is often based on real life, modern society, real world events and proceeds to warp them into something outside our own imagination. Take no better examples than George Orwell’s 1949 novel Nineteen Eight-Four and Frank Herbert’s 1965 novel Dune which carry topics that remain as relevant today as they were...

About The Game

In NORTH, you play a man who applies for asylum in a city filled with strange creatures and strange customs.

Dealing with the issue of the contemporary refugee crisis while at the same time being deeply rooted in a classical cyberpunk atmosphere, NORTH features a dark synth-pop soundtrack, a sprawling megacity and weird monster-like inhabitants.

The gameplay is very straightforward and mostly consists of exploration and simple puzzles. The main difficulty is to understand what you have to do in order to get asylum.

You've come from a foreign land in the south and find yourself lost and confused – a confusion you convey through letters to your sister back home. An important part of the gameplay, these letters help you understand your tasks while at the same time moving the narrative of the game forward.
