Interesting premise, January 18, 2015
by Harry Coburn (Atlanta, GA)
I enjoyed the tension in the game, which seems strange for a game where if you do anything except go north you'll activate the family curse. Each section has a wealth of things that a normal IF player would be dying to examine and play with, but you cannot. It's a short "game" and worth the few minutes.

Apparently there is a point you can score too, but I'm not sure if you can or not.

I enjoyed it too; the writing is wonderful. I wish I knew how to get the point.

I will boastfully vaunt that I got the point without TXDing.

(Spoiler - click to show)As Emily B. said, the title contains a hint.

(Spoiler - click to show)To get the point, you have to do something on the turn before you freeze to death.

(Spoiler - click to show)At the end there's a new direction...

(Spoiler - click to show)It's something of a guess the verb, or guess the direction.

(Spoiler - click to show)You don't have to type anything you haven't typed before, though.

(Spoiler - click to show)At least if you've been typing "NORTH."

(Spoiler - click to show)NORTHNORTH.

You can indeed get that one point:

(Spoiler - click to show)The game's title contains a hint.

I will cheerfully admit that I TXDed the story file to find that out.
