You are a engineering specialist on a winter over team in Antarctica.
Due to a system malfunction, a large explosion destabilizes the ice
and plunges ArchTech station into chaos. Amidst this emergency
situation, you must take charge of the remaining crew in order to
escape the imminent destruction of the base. Your key to survival may
lie in the potential of the "MACHINE"-- a world altering device;
catastrophe. Will you use the Machine despite the risk? Will you put
your life on the line to save the remaining crew? How you choose to
lead will change the fate of those around you and the world you live
in, for better or for worse.
Every puzzle and player-challenge was designed to test the
player's mind. Additionally, provided within the game itself
is enough information to solve each puzzle and challenge (so
that you don't have to rely on hints outside the game).
The technological advancements on ArchTech station are like
none in the known world. The dark energy and matter research
has led to ground breaking discoveries in matter-renewal.
Players will be able to see first hand what unhindered
scientific progress looks like.
The characters in Whiteout redefine Non-Player-Character. They
go beyond the norm and will not only listen to your
suggestions, but will also be affected psychologically by the
decisions you make.
Beating the game once through has a moderate level of
difficulty, but the game comes with a whole host of challenges
that may never be met by the player in a typical “winning”
Exploring may be in your best interest, as certain areas will
certainly give an advantage to beating all the games tests and
challenges. These secret areas provide new items, better
escape routes, and hidden character clues. With that
exploration also comes unearthed secrets about the tragedies
of the past.
