Trollskogen


Troll Princess

 

A folklore inspired exploration puzzler.

 

Once upon a time, a little girl was born. What the little girl did not know, was that one night a stranger would take her away and instead leave another newborn in her crib. The little girl was brought deep into the woods, where she would end up living for many years to come. What she never knew was that the princess of the Trolls had taken her place with her birth family, and she had taken hers. Years passed and she grew up amongst the Trolls, until one day she wandered off. Feeling that once she had left she could not return, she went on a journey to discover the world outside the woods. On her way out she faced challenges, but received help to overcome these from the spirits that roam the forest.

Discover Nordic story-telling from our childhood.

‘Trollskogen’ (or ‘Troldeskoven’) are the mystical woods found in Nordic fairy tales, and in them live the forest people (‘Skogsväsen’ or ‘Skovvæsner’). Trollskogen is inspired by the Nordic fairy tale “Bortbytingarna/The Changelings” with an influence by the artwork of illustrators John Bauer, Kay Nielsen and Elsa Beskow.
