MLC Teams Up with Mindflair Games to Co-Develop No Man’s North, Immersive Open World Survival Game 

November 20th, 2022

MLC, game art production partner, has joined forces with Mindflair Games to co-develop explorative survival game No Man’s North, an adventure set in the snowy Canadian mountains. Inspired by popular games such as The Long Dark, Firewatch and Among Trees, No Man’s North is a survival game at its core, and a romanticised RV escapism journey at its heart. 

No Man’s North is an open world survival game that follows the story of James Heresy, an average man living in British Columbia with just his RV and dog Monty. Explore gorgeous environments on the long roads and maintain and customise your RV, unique to your play-through. Keep moving to avoid a deadly frozen storm, freezing everything in its path. 

“We’re delighted to see the positive reception from the public already for the game”, said MLC’s Studio Director, Max Louis. “No Man’s North is more than just a game, it’s an immersive journey of survival and self-discovery amidst the stunning Canadian mountains. We’re proud to partner with Mindflair Games to bring this thrilling adventure to life.”


Mindflair Games is the game development studio duo of Sam Cookson and George Wright. Together, they have created a gripping survival experience, where players must brave the frozen tundras of Canada as they follow the journey of James Heresy.

We are thrilled to have had the opportunity to collaborate with MLC.” said by Sam Cookson of Mindflair Games. “Their shared vision and passion for No Man’s North has been a driving force behind the game’s development over the past year. From conceptualization to implementation, MLC has delivered outstanding work, including concept art, texturing, new models, animations and more. Our collaboration has resulted in a fresh and exciting game and we are excited to share it with publishers. We look forward to continuing our successful partnership with MLC and achieving new heights together!

The development is expected to last 24 months and the team is actively seeking publishers to come onboard and join them in making the game. No Man’s North promises to be an engaging first-person exploration that takes players through the evacuated wilderness of British Columbia.
