Teaser available to watch now!
Paris, December 15, 2021 – DONTNOD Entertainment, an independent French studio that creates, develops and publishes video games, is very proud to present Gerda: A Flame in Winter. Unveiled tonight during the Nintendo Indie World Showcase, this brand-new narrative game is developed by Danish studio PortaPlay as a co-production for which DONTNOD holds the majority of the rights.
As the first third-party game to be published by DONTNOD, this new collaboration contributes to the value-creation potential of the studio-publisher, which integrates an additional Intellectual Property to its assets and strengthen its games line-up beyond its internal production capacities.

Oskar Guilbert, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of DONTNOD, said: “We are thrilled to be taking part in the Nintendo - Indie World event to present Gerda: A Flame in Winter, DONTNOD's first published game from a third-party studio. We are delighted to be working with PortaPlay which has found the perfect balance of moving narrative adventure and RPG features. Both genres are very popular and at the heart of DONTNOD's knowhow.”
Due for release in 2022, Gerda: A Flame in Winter is an intimate narrative RPG-lite experience set during World War 2 and the German occupation of Denmark. In this poignant story-driven game inspired by real life events, players will walk the path of Gerda, a nurse whose life is turned upside down overnight. Armed only with her wits and knowledge of her community, Gerda must try to save her loved ones while staying true to herself. A tale told not on the front line, but in the intimate setting of the small Danish village she grew up in.
Choices are made through a mix of exploration, dialog, and resource and relationship management. Gerda's personality traits are her skills, and her connection with others will also determine how the story unfolds. Every dilemma is challenging and every decision critical in times of turmoil and war, and this game poses the question: how far would you go to protect your loved ones?
Gerda: A Flame in Winter will be available on Nintendo Switch and PC and will be released in 2022.
