Hérissart is a commune in the Somme department in Hauts-de-France in northern France. The commune is situated at the junction of some 14 miles northeast of Amiens. Known variously as Henresart, Henrissart or Herrissart, the name Hérissart suggests deforested wasteland covered in brambles or gorse. First mentioned in a charter of donations by Clotaire to the abbey of Corbie in 662, as a village created by clearing some of the forest of Vicogne. Sandstone, was once quarried here and used in Amiens cathedral. Today, nothing remains of the industry. In 1774, Guy Antoine Picquet, the last ‘seigneur’ of Hérissart, donated a new bell for the church. Cast in the famous Cavillers foundry at nearby Carrépuis, this bell is still used today, two others having been seized during the French Revolution. Many of the inhabitants were involved, to some degree, in the production of linen, from the growing of flax through preparation and weaving. In 1842, a great fire destroyed many cottages and farms, reducing much of the output, which never recovered.

The new cemetery was created in 1866. The schools and the mairie were built in 1869. During the Franco-Prussian war, the village was taken by the Germans of the 8th Prussian Rhenane Corps, about 300 mane and horses, on 21 March 1871, they stayed till 26 April 1871. The village lost a third of its young men during World War I. Many British troops were billeted here during the fighting. Communes of the Somme department INSEE Hérissart on the Quid website

Elebits: The Adventures of Kai and Zero

Elebits: The Adventures of Kai and Zero, known as Eledees: The Adventures of Kai and Zero in Europe, Elebits: Kai wa Zero Sinbihan Yeohaeng in Korea, is an action video game developed and published by Konami. It is the sequel to the Wii game Elebits; the Adventures of Kai and Zero is an action game that contains many puzzles that the player must solve to progress through the game. In the original Elebits game, the player viewed the world in a first-person perspective. In The Adventures of Kai and Zero, the player views everything in a top-down perspective, to place the emphasis on puzzles rather than in-game physics. Throughout the game and Zero travel to several worlds, each with unique experiences and different puzzles to solve; the player's primary objective is to explore the worlds and collect Elebits, which are small beings that pulse with electricity. Kai can shake trees and lift rocks, which awakes the Elebits hiding underneath these items and forces them to flee. During this moment, the player can catch the Elebits before they disappear.

If the player obtains several Elebits within a few seconds, they are rewarded with extra energy depending on how many Elebits they captured within that time frame. The energy that Kai obtains is used to activate doors and elevators, to use the Omega Elebits' abilities; the game continues the story from Elebits. In The Adventures of Kai and Zero, Kai makes the Omega elebit, which he found at the end of the last game, his pet, names it Zero. Zero comes across an invention created by Kai's father, a magical bus named G. G, accidentally charges it up, which sends Kai and Zero into an alternate universe; every time Kai and Zero use the bus, they are sent to another world. To return to his own universe, G. G tells Kai. G. G tells him that Zero is an Omega. After getting some Omegas, G. G tells Kai. A villager comes to tell you that the village is being ravaged by an Omega, the first boss. After defeating it, the mayor of the village gives you a map which turns out to be a map between two worlds. With the use of the map, they travel to the Elebit Mine.

Kai meets a group of kids called The Pickle Gang, a gang of treasure hunters. It seems that they have lost their Omega. Find the three and the leader, will give you a map. After finding the Omega and exploring the mine, you find the twins Lou, they got lost chasing an Omega. The screen starts to shake and the twins manage to escape while you have to fight the boss. Toto lets you keep their Omega. G. G teleports you to a resort-ish looking beach where Kai finds out a boat got warped here by getting struck by lightning. One of the NPCs will say their world has no Elebits and they depend on energy from wind and other types of fuel. In the ship's basement, Kai finds that they're extracting energy from an Omega and they make is overheat. After fleeing the ship, the captain promises you a map. A villager named Arpaka tells Kai that he to find four Omegas to open a gate to get the Omega needed to calm the overheating one down. After getting all five and calming the down the overheating one, the captain gives Kai the map and he warps.

It's snowy here and the villagers say that the Snow Queen's children have gone missing and they think she's getting revenge on them by making the climate warmer. We see the Snow Queen and she says that it's not her fault that the snow is melting, it is because of her missing children, she awakens Zero's powers and gives you a map and before you can warp, you meet a blonde boy, who you saw in the previous areas. After fighting him he Kai returns to his home world. Arriving there he finds the people are arguing and the Elebits are acting strangely, he runs back to G. G and tells G. G what happened; the blonde boy from last time gives you a map that leads to all worlds you had visited. He warps you to a barren land full of active volcanoes; the boy's name is Leo and he had an Omega that looked a lot like Zero. Its name is Mobius could take away negative emotions and traumatizing memories; that went to his head though and this is what happened to his home. Mobius is now somewhere and Leo tries to find him.

After shutting down all the volcanoes, Kai remembers the Mayor in the first area saying something about a maiden that could connect to the hearts of Elebits, much like he could. He thought maybe. After traveling back and talking to the Mayor, who does not give you much information, Kai remember Arpaka saying something along the lines. Arpaka says. There Zero reacts to a rock cracks open, revealing the map to the Sea Temple. There is, in the temple, but to access the temple, you need to get two pearls. After getting the two pearls, the temple opens and you are attacked by an Omega. After beating the Omega the maiden awakens, her name is Misha. Mobius' negatives are affecting all worlds. Leo shows up, it seems. Leo thinks it's his own job to clean up his mess. Misha says it's bad for him to do so and tells Kai to go after him to Liybra of Crystal, where Mobius is, she says. Her children turn out to be the Odd-eye Twins and Lou. After reuniting Louie and Lou to their mother, the Snow Queen, you receive the map.

Leo has been there his heart has been touched by the negatives given off by Mobius. It is Kai's job now to stop Mobius and restore the scales between
