Winter in Blue Mountain is a platform game with different strategic challenges through its levels, which are located both inside and outside Blue Mountain and even in the town. Animated sequences take you through the story and link the levels together. Levels are unlocked in a fixed order but you are free to return to any level you like to improve your results.
The game Winter in Blue Mountain is based on Gudny Ingebjørg Hagen’s fantastic nisse universe, made famous by the advent calendar series on NRK, theatre performances, books and CDs. 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 nisse hat is hiding out in Blue Mountain. The ancient rule of Blue Mountain says: “A blue nisse who takes a red nisse or one of the townspeople 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 Red Nisse Girl. To get the blue nisses to understand that all nisse hat colours are just as good, the wise and good 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. They will need the Red Nisse Girl’s help to make it. Turte and Twin must find red and blue berries, toboggan down to the town on a fur rug to nisse themselves cookies for the Red Nisse Girl, keep Blue Mountain clear of garbage and search for rock crystals deep inside Blue Mountain. When the new cape is ready music and song will drive the ancient rule out of Blue Mountain.
