Publisher Meridiem Games has officially announced the European launch of the special boxed Resistance Edition of Gerda: A Flame in Winter for the Nintendo Switch. The release date is set for 23rd November 2023.
Developed by Bird Island and brilliantly published by the renowned DON’T NOD, Gerda: A Flame in Winter offers players a unique perspective on the WWII narrative. The story centers on Gerda, a courageous young nurse embroiled in the war’s chaos, navigating moral dilemmas and dangerous choices as she grapples with her loyalty to her community and her desperate search for her husband, Anders.
Set against the backdrop of February 1945, players step into the shoes of Gerda Larsen, whose personal battles intertwine with the larger-scale atrocities of the war. Every decision made by the player can have profound short-term and long-term repercussions, shaping the narrative and determining the fate of the characters and community involved.
The game is described as an RPG-lite. This means players will have to manage resources like personality points, allegiances, and other tangible items. Relationships with different factions and individuals play a pivotal role in how the story progresses. Players will have the freedom to explore, but must be cautious as events can be time-sensitive and people move around, making every choice critical.
The special Resistance Edition, distributed across European retail stores by Meridiem Games, promises more than just the game. It will come in a specially designed sleeve and will boast collectibles such as two unique art postcards and an exclusive bookmark.
