As a standalone experience, The Frostrune is lacking. But as the gateway to another world, it shines like ice in the morning sun.
As much as The Frostrune evokes excellent “puzzle room”-style games, it doesn't quite match the high standards set by games that came before it. It still offers a lot of the same puzzling action, but doesn't quite do so with the clarity to make what you're doing feel purposeful or satisfying. If you're looking for a game like this and have played the rest, The Frostrune will definitely scratch that itch. Otherwise, I would recommend just checking out some of the greatest hits of the genre instead.
The Frostrune takes Norse mythology, weaves a tale about it, and puts it into a point and click adventure title. It has plenty of atmosphere with great visuals and audio that really captures the feel of the Asatru, and the age of the Vikings in general but it does lack somewhat in the storytelling. What really made folktales big was that they always had some deeper moral lessons to teach the reader, something that is really lacking in this pretty shallow story about looking for different plot devices.
