Into the Glacier is a fairy-tale-like game about traveling into the vast cold glacier, seeing the wonders and beauty around you, and searching for the reason you ventured out.
This is the game that started the Carta system! You play by choosing 9-21 cards and laying them down in a grid on a table. Each turn you move your toke to a card, flip it over, and answer the corresponding prompts.
You choose between one of the 4 reasons to venture forth into the snow. Each reason is accompanied by a short story that tells the legend of what you are searching for, but all the stories are very good!
I picked the Mountain Knight, a giant who swore an oath to protect the town from a meteor that will one day fall and crush the village, but has turned into stone over the long wait. You can find my playthrough Here
