On this occasion, Oskar Guilbert, President and CEO of DONTNOD, declared: “ Gerda: A Flame in Winter is the first game developed in co-production with an external studio to be published by the DONTNOD teams. We instantly fell in love with the game and are thrilled to help PortaPlay bring this intimate and never-before-told story to life. We are convinced that this new Intellectual Property, which enriches our offer beyond internal production capacities, will strongly contribute to the creation of value for DONTNOD.. »
This heartwarming narrative game is set in the small Danish town of Tinglev during World War II and the German occupation. It is inspired by true events that Hans von Knut Skovfoged, Head of Development at PortaPlay, learned from his grandmother, a member of the Danish resistance. Players will follow in the footsteps of Gerda Larsen, an unexpected heroine, who will need to muster courage and determination when her life suddenly changes.
When she returns from the clinic where she works as a nurse, Gerda notices blood outside her house and discovers her husband, Anders, in the hands of the Gestapo; the latter is then arrested. He left behind important documents about the Resistance and it seems that many Danish and German lives now depend on Gerda’s next actions.
A war story told, not on the front lines, but in the intimate surroundings of the Danish village in which he grew up.
Gerda: a llama in winter will be available on Nintendo Switch and PC (Steam) from 1Ahem September 2022 and now available to wishlist on Steam!
