Risks and challenges

The character artist and I have been busy with university and work. But we are very passionate about this project and we want to offer our players the best experience, often in the cost of being late on deadlines. In this game, I want to present a taste of Iceland and Icelandic myths that I enjoyed so much in my trip to Iceland this year. Why do we usually only see aurora in the upper northern hemisphere? Who lives in the little houses in Iceland kilometres away from any town? Although I want to address many of these questions, some have been rendered and edited for the game and considered unauthentic, and we need your help to do Icelandic wonders justice.
