Snowtouched

For generations, a tribe of nichelings have lived on a gentle, pleasant island, with no reason to ever look elsewhere. But when Kois, the child of wanderers from an older, fragmented tribe, finds a strange white cub, she recognises the omen in front of her. It is time to leave and seek out a new life in the snow.

Together with Laana, a seer who reads the future in shells and tides, she leads a small expedition in search of the frozen mountains the tribe know of only in stories. But many dangers lie between them and their new home, and they must stay together and work as a family to survive.

A Niche fan story, taking inspiration from Seri the Pixel Biologist.
