Denmark-based indie game company Triple Topping have released a brand new reveal trailer for their next game on the way to Steam, Elk. The company has been previously known for their pansexual platformer Spitkiss, and now they've got a new super weird narrative adventure on the way for 2020. Check out the full description and trailer below as we try to make sense of whatever is going on here.
Elk is an island with tales of real stories. Stories from people who have experienced them or who have heard first-hand accounts, like Lauge who lived in Greenland and rural California. (Lauge is also brother to Astrid, the director on Elk.) You play as Frigg, a young carpenter traveling to Elk for an apprenticeship. She is used to an outgoing and hectic lifestyle in the city. How will she handle the isolated life on Elk with only few young people around her and no internet?
On Elk, Frigg and you will meet the weird and wonderful characters – people whom the world has either ignored or forgotten. Follow their ups and downs, their odd drinking rituals and their unique ways of tackling whatever life throws at them. Heare it's known that humour, love and death go hand in hand. Life may seem hard sometimes, but it is always followed by laughter. We value the importance of storytellers, those who carry the tales of others and share them. That's why, in Elk, you will also meet the living storytellers who inspired us to make this game.
