When two cousins are shipwrecked on a remote island in Alaska, it’s up to you to help them survive, escape, and maybe even discover why there are so many security cameras out here in the middle of nowhere…

57° North tells a gripping story with hundreds of decisions and multiple endings that depend on the choices you make. All you need is a compatible iOS or Android device. For an even more immersive experience, it can also work with the Merge Cube (https://mergevr.com/cube) to bring gorgeous illustrations to life in the palm of your hand. Just don’t get too distracted looking at the scenery… we’ve heard there are bears on the island.

FAQ

Are there different versions of the app?
Nope! Both the standard (2D) and the Merge viewing modes are all built into a single app. Once you launch the app you can choose which version you want to play and you can change at any time.

What is the Merge Cube?
The Merge cube is the world’s first holographic object. Featured recently in New York MagazineVenture Beat, and Buzzfeed, the Merge Cube is a powerful and affordable device which merges physical and digital worlds using augmented reality technology and the powerful camera and sensors in your mobile device. For more information, see the Merge Cube website. To use it with 57° North, just choose the merge cube mode, place the cube in front of your device and rotate it to play.

What is VR Mode?
The game is also compatible with the Merge Goggles: https://mergevr.com/goggles Just choose Merge VR mode from the app and slide your smartphone into the front of the device, then you can look through the goggles at the cube without even thinking about the phone. If you don’t have the Merge Goggles, then just choose standard or merge cube mode.

How long is the game?
It depends on your choices, but approximately 1 hour for a single play through. Of course, you can always go back through the story again, making different choices to try and reach a different outcome.

Is it safe for kids?
57° North is designed for ages 10 and up. While there is nothing objectionable content-wise, the story is about surviving in the wilderness, so can be dramatic and intense at times. We’ve found that 10 is a great age, but teenagers and adults seem to love it just as much as kids.

Is it available in any other languages?
At this time it is only available in English. If you would like to see it translated into another language, send us an email at info@mightycoconut.com. If we get enough requests we’ll do our best to translate it.

I’m having issues…
If the issue is with the Merge Cube, you should contact their support team. If there is a problem with the game itself, you can submit a request via the iTunes Store / Google Play, or email info@mightycoconut.com.
