Father Frost is a classic adventure game based on a legendary Russian fairy-tale, divided into four acts - according to the four seasons - created with handmade graphics and lovely animations.

About Father Frost

A classic adventure game based on the legendary Russian fairy-tale, a story about love, wrath, avarice, humbleness, lowliness and searching.

It is divided into four acts– according to the four seasons. That means you’ll visit some of the game locations several times, but every time during a different season and at a different time of day.

Together with the humble girl Nastienka and the gallant hero Ivan, you are about to solve challenging puzzles and overcome many baited traps, and in the end you’ll try some of the wedding“pirozhki”. Awaiting you are mysterious beings and magical objects, wild beasts and domestic animals and pets, guileful highway robbers, the evil hag Baba Yaga, Old Man Mushroom, prudent Father Frosty and many other traditional and non-traditional fairy-tale characters.
