A downloadable game for Windows

Rievssat is a short, narrative alt control game developed during the Sami Game Jam in Utsjoki, over a weekend of February 2018. Two assigned themes served as inspiration for the developers: Strangers in Their Own Land and The People of Eight Seasons.

Using a leap motion controller and an acceleration pedal, the game allows the player to control a willow ptarmigan (riekko) – a bird native to Northern Europe. By flying through the Sami land and collecting food, the player experiences the environment’s transition throughout the eight seasons. 

But it is not only the nature that changes with time. Each season represents more human interference and challenges the bird has to adapt to. Trees are being cut down, new buildings rise, taking up the bird’s space and applying new rules to its natural habitat. 

As if the bird doesn’t belong in its own homeland.
