Draugen is a journey into the pitch black heart of Norwegian national romanticism, as seen through the eyes of an American nature photographer, botanist and entomologist.
Draugen (Norwegian; meaning "the Draug") is an undead creature from Norse mythology. The original Norse meaning of the word is ghost, but unlike traditional ghosts the Draug has a corporeal body and physical abilities. Draug reside in their watery graves, guarding the treasures and secrets that were buried with them. And they will protect those secrets at any cost.
The story is inspired by Scandinavian literature, legends and fairytales, as well as Norse mythology and the Icelandic sagas. The game is set in the early 1920s, and delves into the deepest, darkest secrets of a remote fishing community where every single soul has mysteriously vanished.
