Description

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.)

Story and setting

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.

Features

  • A narrative game based on tales of real stories told by real people.
  • Mini games that are deeply connected to the game and story.
  • An endearing and lovable cast of characters to explore.
  • Humorous and beautiful hand drawn artstyle.

The team

We are Triple Topping! Our first game Spitkiss was released November 2018. We are also working on Ynglet together with Nicklas Nygren.

Long before Simon and Astrid founded Triple Topping they worked on Elk together for Astrid’s BA project. When Murray joined Triple Topping his humoristic art style and good sense for storytelling was added to the game. Triple Topping got development support from the Danish Game Scheme to create the first prototypes and are now working on the game fulltime.
