Ice Age is inspired off a survival game called The Long Dark. It’s said that the Earth is overdue for an Ice Age.
Ice Age takes place in a world where the Ice Age began to set in in the early 1980’s. As global temperature’s fell, Agriculture and eco systems began to collapse, the world slowly descended into chaos as governments worked around the clock to prepare underground bunkers for long term survival.
By 2017, August 6th the average global temperature was -25 degrees, Agriculture, Services and Industry completely collapsed. Poor countries perished, while rich countries built huge underground networks to house some of the population.
Life above the surface was unsustainable and governments abandoned it all together to focus on those living underground, leaving those unfortunate enough to miss a spot in the underground network to perish.
2 months pass by and You, the player, live in a remote part of Canada, society above ground has collapsed and supplies are running low. Do you have what it takes to survive in the Canadian wilderness?
