Gerda: A Flame in Winter is a narrative adventure game set in the small Danish village. Gerda's quiet life is turned upside down during the World War 2 occupation of her home. You choose where to go, how to act, and who to trust.

You play Gerda, who must try to save her loved ones while staying true to herself. You move around the world and respond to questions and decisions. Each choice is challenging and has consequences. You use a mix of exploration, dialog, and resource and relationship management to shape personality traits and skills that determine your connection with others and how the story unfolds.

It's a light touch role play, that takes a different approach to the experience of war. It's a game played not on the front line, but in the intimate small Danish village with only your wits and knowledge of people to survive.

The result is a branching story of compassion, community, and courage, inspired by real life experiences and events.
