Welcome to Elk Brings its Baggage to Linux and Nintendo Switch on February 10

Welcome to Elk sets sail for Switch and Linux this February

Welcome to Elk

Danish studio Triple Topping has announced that their 2020 release, Welcome to Elk, will arrive on Nintendo Switch on February 10th, 2022. Previously only available on PC and XBox, the Independent Games Festival Awards nominee will also be released on Linux via Steam. Normally priced at $14.99 USD, Welcome to Elk will be discounted by 20% until February 17 — a sale price of $11.99.

Welcome to Elk impressed in 2020 with its powerfully shocking collection of stories inspired from the dev team’s real-life experiences. The hand-drawn, narrative-driven title centers on Frigg, a young carpenter apprentice who travels to the small island of Elk to learn her trade under the tutelage of a family friend. As time goes on, Frigg becomes increasingly more important to the island’s inhabitants, listening to their deeply-rooted traumas and resolving longstanding issues. Perhaps it’s coincidental that Frigg is caught up in Elk’s critical moments… or perhaps fate itself drew her to the island.

HeyPoorPlayer has previously reviewed the PC version of Welcome to Elk, rating it a 4/5:

“Welcome to Elk is an important game in that it makes the unimportant worthy of remembering, giving them the same gravitas any celebrity automatically receives. We tell the bad stories because we’re left holding baggage of an unknown weight, but we need to tell the good stories as well — to shine a light against the otherwise dark moments that seemingly act as traumatic bookmarks in life. I’m still left pondering the meaning behind Welcome to Elk, afraid of coming back to what it’s already told me: these are just stories, and now it’s my turn. If you have three or so hours and are prepared for the disturbing imagery and tales within, I highly, highly recommend GOTY material Welcome to Elk.”
