Friday 14th February 2020, Manchester, UK – Merge Games are thrilled to announce their partnership with Infuse Studio, to bring the emotional exploration-puzzle adventure Spirit of the North to Nintendo Switch and PC this Spring!

Awaken… begin a quiet journey of discovery and companionship after rousing the slumbering Spirit of the North.

Spirit of the North is a single-player 3rd-person adventure game inspired by the breath-taking and mysterious landscapes of Iceland. The story takes root from various pieces of Nordic folklore.

Breathe in your surroundings to solve various puzzles and speculate the meaning of a lost ancient civilization. With the help of your new companion, shed light on the ruins of the past and overcome obstacles.

Play as an ordinary red fox whose story becomes entwined with the guardian of the Northern Lights, a female spirit fox. As you journey over the mountains and under red-stained skies, you’ll discover more about your companion and a land left in ruin. Traverse tundra, glaciers, and mountainsides as you follow a foreboding scarlet trail that paints the sky.

Key Features:

• Make your way across stunning landscapes, on an emotionally stirring journey.

• Solve environmental puzzles to change the world around you, using ancient powers bestowed upon you by the guardian of the Northern Lights.

• Follow the mysterious Spirit Fox across a land left in ruin as you discover more about a lost civilization.

• Moving orchestral soundtrack featuring 14 original compositions.
