During the Guerrilla Collective Showcase this weekend, developer Triple Topping announced that Welcome to Elk would be coming to Xbox One. The game is a multi-biographical adventure which is set on an island that is like no other you've seen before. Every every character you encounter, from leaders of the city all the way down to the kids, have their own story to tell. Everything from "the weird and wonderful to the dark and desperate", according to the game's info. All of the tales told on Elk are based on true stories, for you to relive in their own way. You can read more below as well as check out the trailer and more as we wait to hear from the devs about an official release date.

Welcome to Elk, a fictional island stitched together with true stories and tall tales. A biographical adventure peppered with minigames, Elk can be joyful, dark and hilarious, these travel stories about people whom the world has either ignored or forgotten will take you on a journey about like no other. Elk is based on stories from people who have experienced them or who have heard first-hand accounts, like Lauge who lived in Greenland and rural California (he is also the brother of Elk's director Astrid), who almost smuggled diamonds in India and made friends with Anders who died three times. At least. You play as Frigg, a young carpenter trading their busy life in the city for an apprenticeship in a small town. When she arrives in Elk, Frigg worries that the slower pace of life will be boring (they don't even have the internet), but quickly discovers nothing could be further from the truth!
