Teaser available to watch now!

Paris, December 15, 2021 – DONTNOD Entertainment, independent French studio that creates, develops and publishes video games, is very proud to present to you Gerda: a flame in winter. Unveiled this evening at the Nintendo Indie World Showcase, this brand new narrative game is developed by the Danish studio PortaPlay in co-production in which DONTNOD holds the majority of the rights.

The first third-party game published by DONTNOD, this new collaboration contributes to the value creation potential of the studio-publisher, which incorporates additional Intellectual Property into its heritage and strengthens its game offering beyond its internal production capacities. .

DONTNOD and PortaPlay are delighted to unveil the teaser for the announcement of Gerda: a flame in winter, which can be viewed here:

Oskar Guilbert, Chairman and CEO of DONTNOD, said: “We are delighted to participate in the Nintendo – Indie World event to present Gerda: A Flame in Winter, the first game released by DONTNOD by a third party studio. We are delighted to be working with PortaPlay who have found the perfect balance between moving narrative adventure and RPG features. Both genres are very popular and at the heart of DONTNOD’s know-how.

Release scheduled for 2022, Gerda: a flame in winter is an intimate narrative RPG-lite experience set during WWII and the German occupation of Denmark. In this poignant story game inspired by real events, players will walk the path of Gerda, a nurse whose life is turned upside down overnight. Armed only with her intelligence and her knowledge of her community, Gerda must attempt to save those close to her while remaining true to herself. A story told not on the front lines, but in the intimate setting of the small Danish village where she grew up.

Choices are made through a mixture of exploration, dialogue and the management of resources and relationships. Gerda’s personality traits are her skills, and her connection with others will also determine how the story unfolds. Every dilemma is difficult and every decision is critical in times of unrest and war, and this game begs 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.
