Description

This cozy little point-and-click fairy-tale draws heavily from Swedish folk lore, with art inspired by artists such as John Bauer and Alvaro Tapia. It uses puzzles and riddles to tell its story, and there are several different ends to it. The player will also get to experience unique music and compelling voice over, as well as discover part of Sweden’s history, since the game takes place in the 19th century - a time where over a million people left the country to avoid starvation and build a new life for themselves.

History

The first idea for Midvinter saw the light of day when Anna was sitting on a train going south through the countryside of Sweden. The first stumbling steps were taken with the help of interactive story engine Twine, and when she later decided to make a point-and-click game, the theme seemed like the perfect fit. She quite her job to make it, and has since spent six month doing just that. With ups and downs, including waves of negativity from internet trolls, it has been an exciting time to say the least.
