Ruggnar physical

Today, Red Art Games announced that it will produce a physical version for Ruggnar on Switch. It will be available on January 5, 2024.

Two versions are in the works. Alongside a standard edition, there’ll also be a limited Deluxe Edition. Copies of the latter include the game, a wraparound box sleeve, a notebook, and a double-sided poster. Only 3,000 copies will be made.

Ruggnar, a 2D platformer without enemies, will make its debut on Switch later this week on the eShop. Read more about it below.

As the veins of his city are depleted and the valley is deserted of its inhabitants, rumors of taverns come to Ruggnar’s ears. Abandoned places contain incredible treasures that are just waiting to be pickep up.
Equipped with his bag and a few candles, he goes on an adventure to make his fortune!

Ruggnar has a limited amount of candles to help him in these dark places. Help him to manage his supply.
Seeing the path ahead of you, activating certain mechanisms or simply lighting up: it’s up to you to find the perfect use for each candle! And if you throw one, remember to pick it up. It might come in useful soon!

There are no enemies to kill here, but many traps are in your way. Hidden by the darkness, you may find yourself face to face with an axe, a fireball or other nasty things. Don’t worry, move carefully, use your candles and everything will be fine. After all, Ruggnar is very agile for a dwarf and he gets up quite easily after an accident. Observe your surroundings, listen to the noises around you, throw your candles. The traps are there. It’s up to you to avoid them!

Throughout your journey, unlock new abilities. Visit the merchant to learn the secrets contained in ancient grimoires to improve your candles and equipment, or to buy the latest items in stock. Need a change? Many beard dyes, armors and helmets are hidden. Find them and create your own style!
