The North is a PS1 style exploration game. Talk to NPCs and try to solve a murder onboard an arctic icebreaker ship trapped in the ice. You play as Doctor David Barclay, the ship's surgeon and the one man above suspicion. Interact with the crew to get clues but beware, you are not a well liked or respected member of the HMS Ectorius.

5 levels and several alternative endings.

Game play is that of a 3D visual novel

CW: Some misgendering as this game is set in the 1800s. Nothing egregious.

Bug Log:
-Accessing the menu in game does not unlock the mouse so you have to use hot keys. They will be listed underneath each button. Still working on this, sorry. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Please post screenshots of errors and bugs in the release notes comments section.
