On Sept. 17, Welcome to Elk Retells True Tales

Tall tales are expected in fiction, but the strange and the inane thrive equally in real lives. Welcome to Elk, Denmark-based Triple Topping’s upcoming title, explores and celebrates the oddities of reality–the stories that are as unexpected as they are rarely told. Welcome to Elk is summarized with the following:

“Welcome to Elk is a biographical adventure set on an island like no other, where every character you encounter has a story to tell. From the weird and wonderful to the dark and desperate, all the tales told on Elk are based on true stories of life on the road less traveled.”

Cartoonish aesthetics often belie mature subject matter, and Welcome to Elk‘s cheerful style is of the same ilk as the rest. While humor and joy are added in good measure, Welcome to Elk‘s recipe also incorporates servings of tragedy and brutality. These stories represent the duality of life we all know well, and perfectly so, as they are perfectly true. Welcome to Elk arrives on September 17 for PC and Xbox.
