Welcome to the Glacier. It is a mysterious place just out of humanity's grasp, just a little bit further than people, with their lights and their fire, can reach.

That is not, of course, to say it is uninhabited. Nor is it to say that no one ever ventures into the Glacier. People have their reasons.

You have your reasons.

Whatever their reason for trespassing in Winter's sacred territory, people try and quickly find that they do not belong here.

You Will Need:

  • One standard deck of playing cards
  • Two six-sided dice
  • A character marker like a figurine or small toy
  • A piece of paper and a pencil

You Might Want:

  • A hot drink
  • A favorite blanket
  • A nice journal

Into the Glacier is a single-player journaling (or, if you prefer, map-making) game inspired by lots of things, including:

  • Edmonton winters
  • The Great Glacier sequence in Final Fantasy 7, my favorite part of one of my favorite games.
  • Mapping the Catacombs, from Sorceress & Witch
  • The Wretched & Alone games, based on The Wretched, from Loot the Room
  • The Estate of Baron Archambaud, just a real work of art of a puzzle game.
  • The 2020 Winter Jam, which I barely completed this game in time for.   

Content Warnings:

  • Sickness - The Rimerein Unicorn
  • Death - The Ice Dragon’s Feather
  • Death - 4 of Spades

Coming back to tell you, this is worth picking up!

5 Stars!


I love that this game gives me four different stories to play. This is such a lovely idea!


You've created a really lovely game with a very imaginative setting. The scenarios are very detailed and truly spark the imagination. I have written a review of it at Goodreads, if you'd like to check it out. https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/3867381538

Thanks so much for letting me know! And thanks for the lovely words of encouragement. <3 I'm glad you had a good time in the Glacier.
