Save Your Home!
The daily life of a Sami village is disturbed after an accident at a nearby Tar-Burning Pit. An odd disease starts spreading across the area, affecting everything from the land to the people and animals.
You play as Ailu, a young Sami herder searching for a runaway reindeer doe. The mystery of the growing disorder starts to unravel when Ailu finds an old enchanted drum, Goavddis. Time is running out for the infected, but the long lost knowledge of Sami healers, Noaidis, is still beating within the drum.
What is lost can always be regained! Find the four Familiar Spirits and reconnect with nature to find the source of the disease. It’s your time to become a new Noaidi for a new era!
