_Vinter i Bl afjell_ is a platform game based on the author Gudny Ingebjørg
Hagen’s Nisse universe that was made famous by the advent calendar series on
public service TV station NRK in Norway.
The player takes on the role of the blue Nisse girl Turte who, together with
her brother Twin, discovers that a Nisse girl with a red hat is hiding out in
Blue Mountain. The ancient rule of Blue Mountain says: “A blue Nisse who takes
a red Nisse into Blue Mountain must leave Blue Mountain and never come back”.
So all the other blue Nisses, and especially Blue Mother and Blue Father, are
horror-struck when Turte and Twin introduce the girl with the red hat. To get
the blue Nisses to understand that all hat colours are just as good, the wise
ruler Queen Mountain Rose asks to have a new Christmas cape made in a
completely new colour – a blue colour with a bit of red in it. To create this
they will need to collect red and blue berries that are spread across the
levels in the game.
The platform elements are combined with collecting items, avoiding hazards and
sometimes solve small environment based puzzles, for instance pulling a lever
to get a platform to move.
