Announced during the Ninidies Spring Showcase in 2019, The Red Lantern is now crossing the finish line today. Initially planned to be released that same year, it was delayed to 2020. Yet, due to the events of this year, there’s a new meaning behind this Iditarod adventure and trying to survive with just your pack of dogs by your side.

 

 

The Red Lantern is a resource management narrative game where you and your team of five sled dogs must survive the wilderness and find your way home. Set in the outskirts of Alaska, you play as The Musher, voiced by Ashly Burch (Horizon: Zero Dawn, Life is Strange), as she sets out to start her new dog sledding life in the wilderness.

 

The game combines roguelite elements into this story-driven adventure game, where hundreds of different events can occur—like fending off bears, resisting frostbite, attending your dogs, or avoiding the most nefarious of woodland creatures: the squirrel.

  • Survive the Alaskan wilderness in this dog sledding, story-driven, rogue-lite game 
  • Choose how you want to interact with the world, do you tackle it head on hunting everything that moves, or do you take a more cautious approach? 
  • Discover the hundreds of unique encounters as you and your dogs explore the world and try to find your way home.
  • Adopt your 4 favorite pups to complete your dog sledding team.

 

You can buy The Red Lantern on sale for $19.99 (normally $24.99) in the Nintendo eShop starting today.
