Timberline Studio‘s widely anticipated dog-sledding narrative survival game, The Red Lantern, will make its debut on the Epic Games Store and Nintendo Switch October 22nd for $24.99 USD.
“The Red Lantern is our debut title, and we’re thrilled to finally get to share it with everyone,” shares Lindsey Rostal, Co-Founder and CEO of Timberline Studio. “We’ve been spending quite a lot of time with our 9 pups and we hope people fall in love with them as much as we have. We set out to make a narrative game that wasn’t about which ending you got, but about which journey. How will you react to what’s happening around you? What dogs will you adopt? As you progress and gain more resources and items, what stories do you unlock? The Red Lantern is about pursuing the goals you set for yourself, even if they are a little bit wild. Whatever your journey is, we hope you persevere and find your way home.“
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.
