What is Welcome to Elk?

Welcome to Elk starts off on the island, where you play as Frigg, a carpenter who has accepted an apprenticeship away from the big city. Initially, Frigg is worried this might have been one big mistake as she finds the island boring due to her previously busy and outgoing lifestyle. They don’t even have the internet here!

As Frigg meets more people and they share their stories, you learn their drinking routines, follow their ups and downs, and learn the unique ways they handle hard situations. On Elk, it is known that humor, love, and death go hand in hand. So when life throws you a curveball, it’s always followed with laughter.

What Are The Features?

  • A narrative adventure game of true life stories told by real people.
  • Unique mini-games that connect to the stories and the game.
  • Amusing and hand-drawn art style.
