From Moacube, developer of Cinders, a visual novel/crime mystery for PC


Written by on

Solstice is a mystery thriller about small personal disasters that can turn into great catastrophes, and a clear conscience that is as rare as pure snow.

In an exotic city in the middle of a frozen wasteland and cut off from the world by raging blizzards, a small group of misfits can’t or won’t leave for the dead winter season.

When the local archaeologist goes missing, an ambitious doctor on a contract and a mysterious young woman who arrived with the last dog sled caravan start asking questions. What starts as an innocent investigation to pass the time may result in the cold wasteland finally claiming the proud Jewel of the North.


  • Two protagonists with different perspective and conflicting goals.
  • A cast of complex, colorful characters. And everyone is hiding something!
  • A tale of secrets and underlying motivations. It’s not “who.” It’s “why.”
  • Beautiful illustrations by Gracjana Zielinska.

From the developer of Cinders, Solstice will be released on PC and Mac at a date TBD.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
