In the middle of June, a snowstorm hits the County. Chëlilis is homesick, Gayatri's eyes are getting worse, and Sheriff Fred's caught in the center of the maelstrom. As the snow threatens to put the County in disarray, their journeys unexpectedly intersect as they search for a way home.

Headphones Recommended

Crushed Earth is a binaural recording, which means listeners will experience sound above, behind, and all around them when listening through headphones. Unlike traditional recordings, this creates an immersive, 3D audio effect that places you inside each environment as if you were there live.

Any pair of headphones will work. Nothing fancy needed!
