This game is based on the voyage leading to one of the earliest Cajun settlements in southern Louisiana. The expedition was lead by Joseph Broussard. After being exiled from Nova Scotia, many Cajuns were sent to Sainte-Dominique, modern day Haiti, and then left due to unbearable weather conditions. They sailed to the Louisiana coast, traveled up the Atchafalaya River, and then entered Bayou Teche. The area they settled in was known was the Atakapas District, which later became St. Martin Parish, which in modern times is divided into five parishes (counties). Note: I not only come from a Cajun heritage, but also have taught in this historical events region.
This game is about a boy that gets separated from his family, that have yet to make the settlement. He encounters local creatures, including nasty mosquitoes. With flashbacks, the history of the voyage from Novia Scotia to Sainte-Dominique to Louisiana is told.
