The Red Lantern

Nintendo Switch Ι Genre: Arctic Adventure

Since the age of the Vikings dogs are considered very important in the Scandinavian culture; present in the mythology and in literature, everyone, from the richest village chief to the last of the warriors, kept a dog not only as a pet but also as a working animal.

Go North with your dogs!

While cats were the animals consecrated to the goddess Freyja, dogs were associated with Odin; especially Geri and Freki. Portrayed as two magnificent wolves; both of them always accompanied the father of the gods in all of his travels among the Nine Worlds. But they are not the only celestial dogs; in fact, even the Hel, the queen of the underworld, was accompanied by the fierce wolf Garm who was also the guardian of the other world.

Anyway if we analyze dogs in a prosaic way; we will discover that during the Viking era dogs were trained and used in several daily activities, and the more dogs a man owned the more was respected. In fact, many archaeological excavations bring back to light a lot of dog’s skeletons who have been buried together with their masters; also was commonly believed that the greatest warriors and their dogs were admitted in Odin’s great hall of Valhalla.

Nowadays in the whole Arctic Polar Cycle, dogs are still used as means of transport; their use started around 9000 years ago, and with the sled dogs millions of people could reach previously inaccessible locations connecting very far villages within few hours, or days in the worst cases.
Some of them became actual legendary barking superstars; names like Balto or Togo are very famous, and many books, comics, and movies have been dedicated to them. The indie developer Timberline Studio wanted to honor all of these tireless companions of adventures, and the result is something very spectacular; The Red Lantern for Nintendo Switch!
