About the Story
In this short story that's part romance and part tragedy, you play as a young woman. A week ago, the Ice Queen stole your boyfriend from your bed, leaving a snowflake in his place. Now, you stand outside her cave, wondering what you must do to get her to give him back.

This is a straightforward quick game. Your man was stolen by the ice queen and you have to go get him.
There are no puzzles exactly, you just walk to the next room and talk to the NPC who will give you an option and you choose whether or not to take them up on it.
The end of the game (Spoiler - click to show) is a lot like shade, where you realize it was all a dream leaves you wondering what was the point, I suppose.
The best games to compare this to would be shade, or 9:05. It's straightforward like 9:05, where you basically walk to the end and see a big reveal. Shade had more going on, more of a gradual reveal, where as this one kind of throws it all at you at the end out of nowhere.
Still, the writing is nice, definately worth a play. It should take you no more than 5-10 minutes to get through.
I have no idea what to make of this. You can finish it in under 10 minutes, and it seems to have two endings. I can tell how the endings are different, but not why. The story has a fantasy beginning, but the good ending doesn't entirely make sense; only the bad one does. Really, I just don't know what to make of this game. I won't call it bad or unpolished just...I don't get it.
