A downloadable game for Windows and macOS


The current "demo" is only a teaser. We will release the actual demo as soon as all of the needed assets, programming, and writing for the common route are finished.


MC, an intelligent college girl intent on becoming a climatologist, travels to the North Pole as an intern with her moms — Karen (an oceanographer) and Tracey (a biogeochemist). One day, after deciding to take a small break from analyzing data, MC goes outside just as soon as a blizzard hits. No way to see where she's going, she ends up getting lost and slipping on ice, injuring her head. Luckily, she's saved and looked after by none other than... Santa's reindeer?!

Thank you for the teaser. This is so beautiful. I love all of the characters. The art is really well done and Donder is so CUTE!!!!!

Thank you so much! We appreciate the feedback and glad you enjoyed it :D And I agree, Donder is a cute one ;)

Hello! How long is it? :)

Hi there! The teaser shouldn't take too long, 30 minutes max. :)

this was honestly very enjoyable so far!! it was a blast to play through--and can i just say the art was SO pleasing to my eyes?? i don't know, but there's something about the characters designs and backgrounds that made me feel very relaxed and soothed, haha! xD. i'm in love with the characters a lot, and so do a few friends i played this with. they're practically all my favorites, but i'm mostly really into rudolph and blitzen, they're such pumpkins!! i'll definitely be following how this progresses! thank you so so much for the pleasant teaser! <3

Thank you so much!! Props to Zino, King-sama, and Sasquatchii for all the wonderful art assets they provided xD Honestly, if it weren't for them and the writing team - Ashe and Jackie - this project would be nothing. We're so glad the characters are being received well, too! That was our main concern, I think, is if we had given each of the characters their own individual personality that works well with the story. Again, thank you for the support and we're glad that you enjoyed it!

omg omg omg omg!! i love it!! i want more!! this is an interesting concept!! cant wait for the full release!! thank you for this teaser!!

xD Your enthusiasm is so contagious, haha! Thank you so much, we're sooo happy that you enjoyed it!!

yay you replied!! i enjoyed to much the game ... lol

pretty damn cool so far!!! XD 'donder' looks like malix (from seduce me) he even acts a tiny bit like him XD XD

Thank you so much, we're really glad that you enjoyed it! We hope the rest of the demo will be just as cool xD Now that you mention it, I have to agree! Donder is like the long-lost offspring of Malix in a whole other alternate universe, haha, good eye!

XD everytime he spoke, my otaku side constantly screamed REINDEER MALIX!!! REINDEER MALIX! OH MAH GOD!!!!

also, Rudolf kinda reminds me of matthew X3

yes i thought that too! otome sensores all the way!! lol!

and thinking about it, comet? (the grumpy-gus in the tan jacket) reminds me of a grumpy James XD

yes yes!!!

(Edited 1 time)

ALSO, please tell me that Donder's voice acting will sound somewhat similar to Malix

X3 X3 please XD

OH!!! I wanted to ask if there's an ETA on when it'll be released

You'll have to wait and see! ;) I will say that Donder's voice is one of my absolute favorites, so I hope you like it as much as I do ^^

As far as the ETA on the whole demo, we're aiming for the end of May release! IF, and only IF, we get those darn art assets done in time, haha

ooh!!! I'm so excited!!!!! X3 X3 X3
