Tales of real stories

Welcome to Elk, an adventure game set on a fictional island stitched together with true stories and tall tales, and inhabited by the people who lived them.


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!

Tragic stories told with love and sometimes humour

The stories reflect the drama of our lives, on Elk it’s known that humour, love and death go hand in hand. Life may seem hard sometimes, but it is always followed by laughter.

Come abbiamo usato delle storie vere nel gioco?
Storie vere? Come si usa una storia vera in modo etico? Ecco come abbiamo fatto per Welcome to Elk:
Le storie di Welcome to Elk sono raccontate dalle persone che conoscono le storie e/o erano presenti nel momento in cui gli eventi hanno avuto luogo. Sono tutte prese dai ricordi. Le storie raccontate sul nostro sito e nel gioco sono fedeli all'essenza dei racconti ma, tutti i nomi, i luoghi e altri dettagli sono stati modificati e riadattati per proteggere i veri protagonisti delle storie. Per questo motivo, le chiamiamo storie inventate. Le storie non sono raccontate con una perfetta corrispondenza con quelle reali, come succede in alcuni programmi televisivi. Sono riscritte e organizzate secondo una linea narrativa. I personaggi potrebbero avere un ruolo in una storia dove in origine non erano presenti, e solo noi che le abbiamo scritte ne siamo al corrente. Noi, e chi conosce la realtà dei fatti.

Welcome to Elk ha l'aspetto di un gioco divertente, ma è incentrato sul raccontare storie; alcune sono spassose, altre sono cupe, ma sono comunque tutte legate tra loro.

On Elk, you will meet 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.

Meet the people who told the original stories

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.

How we used true stories in the game?

True stories? how to use a true story in an ethical way? This is how we have dealt with it in Welcome to Elk:

The stories in Welcome to Elk, are told by the people who we know and/or were there when the events took place. All are told from memory. The way they are used both on our webpage and in the game is true to the core story but everything like names, locations and other details are changed, renamed and often re-framed to protect the real people behind them, therefore, we call them tall tales. The stories are not one to one like you would experience in true crime for example. They are rewritten and combined to one linear narrative. Characters may play a role in one story where they where not a part of originally and only us who designed it will ever know – or come close to the real truth of the stories.

Welcome to Elk might look like a “fun” game but it’s about telling stories – some are filled with humour others are dark, but they go hand in hand.
