Game to be released on September 1, 2022
May 19, 2022. DONTNOD Entertainment, an independent French studio that creates, develops and publishes video games, is excited to announce the release date for Gerda: A Flame in Winter, its first third-party published game developed by Danish studio PortaPlay.
The new narrative RPG-lite game will be released on Nintendo Switch and PC (Steam) on September 1, 2022.
Oskar Guilbert, CEO of DONTNOD, said: "Gerda: A Flame in Winter is the first game developed in co-production with a third-party studio to be published by DONTNOD. We were immediately taken in by the game and honored to collaborate with PortaPlay in bringing this untold story to life. We are convinced that this new Intellectual Property which enriches our line-up beyond our internal production capacities will strongly contribute to DONTNOD's value creation.”
This poignant narrative game takes place in the Danish village of Tinglev during the German occupation of World War II. The character of Gerda is inspired by a real Danish resistance fighter and grandmother of PortaPlay's Head of Development, Hans von Knut Skovfoged. Players will walk the path of Gerda Larsen, an ordinary woman in extraordinary circumstances who is forced to take a stand after her life is suddenly turned upside down.
One day, Gerda returns home from the clinic where she works as a nurse. She notices blood has she enters the house and soon discovers that her husband, Anders, is being arrested by the Gestapo. He has left behind important resistance documents, and it looks like many Danish and German lives will depend on her next actions.
A tale told not on the front line, but within the intimate setting of the small Danish village Gerda has lived her whole life.
Gerda: A Flame in Winter will be released on Nintendo Switch and PC (Steam) on September 1, 2022, and is already available to wishlist on Steam!
