Le Nordique (also known as The Northman in English) is an Adventure game for the Nintendo Wii being made by Lemmykoopa24 (t∣b∣c). It is about a lone man whose traveling team has been eaten by a pack of abnormal wolves. Now he must brave the cold, harsh conditions of the North if he wants to survive. It is rated T for Violence and Blood. The game uses the Wii Remote and Nunchuk.
Long ago, there were men who lived in the North. They had grown quite used to the harsh cold and had even befriended some of the wildlife. The President wished to learn more about their ways, and so sent 4 brave men on an expedition to the cold North.
The second-youngest of the group, Jonas, seemed to be the best at traversing the mountains and barren wastelands, so the President had put him in charge of the group.
It had been 3 long, cold, harsh weeks of traveling, gathering food, and building campsites. Jonas announced that he would be the one to venture away from the campsite and get firewood, if he could find any, that is. With all the snow and icy winds, finding wood could've been close to impossible.
Jonas searched far and wide. He was about to give up hope, when, a meters in front of him, he spotted a tree. He rushed over to it and picked the biggest, lowest branches he could find.
When he returned, he dropped the wood in shock. The rest of his group was no where to be seen. All he could find were ripped up jackets and a few pools of blood. He also spotted a trail of unusually large wolf tracks. He knew that it must've been them who caused his team's death.
All at once, Jonas knew that it was not safe here. They had been able to resist the harsh temperatures, yes, but there was far more dangerous things in the North besides cold temperatures. With that, he trotted off in the direction they had come from, hoping to get out alive.
