"Wendake" is the name that the Wyandot People use to refer to their traditional territory. This population, also known as the Huron Nation, resided in the Great Lakes region together with the Iroquois, Shawnee, Potomac, Seneca, and many others. In this game, you will explore the traditions and everyday life of these tribes during the 1756-1763 period when the Seven Years War between the French and the English took place in these territories.
But this white man's war is really only a small part of the game; the primary focus is on life in the Native villages, fields, and forests. In this game, you won't find any traditional teepees since those were used by southwestern tribes who moved their camps to follow the herds of buffalo. The Natives of the Great Lakes region were sedentary, living in longhouses. The women farmed corn, beans, and pumpkins, while men hunted beavers in the forests, mainly to sell their pelts as leather.
In the game Wendake, you are a chief of a Native American tribe. You will have to manage all of the most important aspects of their lives, earning points on the economic, military, ritual, and mask tracks.
The core of the game is the action selection mechanism: You have the opportunity to choose better and better actions over seven game rounds, and the winner will be the one who can find the best combinations of actions and use them to lead their tribe to prosperity.
