Gerda: A Flame in Winter is a narrative driven lite-RPG set against the backdrop of WW2 in Denmark, developed by PortaPlay and published by DON'T NOD.

How far would you go to protect your loved ones?



Walk the path of Gerda as her quiet life is turned upside down during the World War 2 occupation of her small Danish village.



Choose where to go, how to act, and who to trust in this intimate narrative RPG-lite experience inspired by real life events.



In this poignant story-driven game, you play as Gerda, a nurse whose life is turned upside down overnight. A tale told not on the front line, but in the intimate setting of the small Danish village she has lived her whole life. Armed only with her wits and knowledge of her people, Gerda must try to save her loved ones while staying true to herself.



Every dilemma is challenging and every decision critical in times of turmoil such as war. Your personality traits are your skills and your connection with others also determines how the story unfolds.



Gerda: A Flame in Winter is a tale of compassion, community, and courage, inspired by real life experiences and events.
