Canada is the infamous Winterland, known for its politeness across the world. With certain characteristics specific only to this country, one can’t help but wonder what a video game about Canada would include. Members of an online forum share ten such features that’d leave you saying “aye.”
1. Goose Attack Alert
Imagine a mission where you have to survive a goose attack. These giant, black-necked Canadian Geese are known for their violent tendencies. A member shares how they live in an area that is by the water and has a ton of geese hanging around during spring. Every time they see them walking, they pick up their dog and run in the opposite direction.
2. Eaten Alive by Horseflies
It may sound dramatic, but Canadians will have you believe that you’ll get eaten alive by horseflies if you aren’t careful. These black flies are the worst, according to one. Imagine a survival level where a herd of these insects is chasing you.
3. Maple Forest Rundown
The worldbuilding of a Canadian game has to feature a maple forest. A user illustrates a challenge where players have to escape the horse flies while traversing a maple forest and getting repeatedly slowed by the sap leaking from all the taps. Imagine quicksand but maple!
4. Heritage Minutes Loading Screen
Imagine the dull loading screen being replaced by The Heritage Minutes. For the non-Candaians, it is a series of sixty-second short films, each showcasing a significant moment in Canadian history. “Not only could I hear it as I read, but I could see it too. Too much nostalgia,” remarks one.
5. Loonies and Toonies
Gameplays are no fun without a currency system. However, keeping up with the Canadian vibe, a member suggests that players can collect loonies as rewards along their journey. A loonie is a Canadian one-dollar coin, while a toonie (you guessed it!) is a two-dollar coin. A second user shares that Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game has already done this remarkably.
6. Canada Post Mailboxes
Canadian worldbuilding is incomplete without featuring Canada Post. However, one person mentions that the mailbox comes up in the tutorial to take things up a notch, but you never need one for half the game. However, at some point, you need one, but there’s none, so you backtrack four levels to find one again. Then your mail gets lost, or you get the wrong mail.
7. Fueling Up With Tims
Tim Hortons’ coffee is a Canadian specialty. Hence, many offer ways to incorporate it into the gameplay. Perhaps players can improve their health bar by consuming Tims. However, a Canadian user thinks that Tim Hortons should be disowned. “It’s not something to be proud of and hasn’t been for years.”
8. Winter Is Coming
If a game doesn’t involve enduring cold, is it even Canadian? On this note, someone shares that The Long Dark is an excellent game set in Canada, and “as you would expect, it’s about surviving the winter.” Maybe players can shovel some snow as a side quest?
9. Sorry, So Sorry!
It won’t be an accurate game if it doesn’t have NPCs constantly apologizing. A user describes how the NPCs would either apologize or chat about the weather (and potholes). However, they turn violent and attack you if you don’t take the time to chat. To make things interesting, butting in line can be the equivalent of kicking a chicken.
10. Candanic Snack Fiesta
Refueling health is vital in survival games, but the question remains: which recipe will win? While some are on team butter tarts, others are on Nanaimo. Let’s not forget the good old BeaverTail. Imagine players going on a mission to find the perfect butter tart.
