Bramble: The Mountain King is a story-driven adventure/horror game focused on atmospheric environments, high-end graphics, cinematic moments and casual gameplay.

Bramble: The Mountain King sees players take on the role of a young boy who together with his big sister, is lost in a magical forest. On their journey, they will meet and interact with gnomes, trolls, and other creatures inspired by Nordic folk-lore.

The environments and unique creatures are inspired by the nature, fables and fairy tales of the Nordics.

A shy boy and his adventurous, older sister sneak out from their home at night and wander deep into a nearby forest. As they explore an old ancient ruin, the ground suddenly collapses, and they tumble down through a sinkhole to the lost and magical world of Bramble.

Together, they explore Bramble, and befriend curious and strange spirits. However, not all of the creatures they meet are friendly. The siblings are taken by surprise as a huge troll traps them. The troll abducts the sister, leaving the younger brother lost in despair.

Without his older sister and role model, the shy boy is lost. He needs to find strength inside of him in order to face all the horror and monsters ahead of him. When he embarks on this journey to reunite with his sister, he also unravels a dark curse that has sickened the world. He soon realizes that something dangerous is lurking in the shadows below the mountains.


Throughout the game you will embark on a journey through the dark world of Bramble where you will encounter “David vs Goliath” bosses and explore and traverse Nordic nature. You will meet interesting creatures and experience a unique world filled with Nordic fables and fairy tales.

The new gameplay trailer showcases a new glimpse into the Bramble world as well as some of the curious inhabitants of the magical forest, and how players will interact with them on their journey. The trailer also teases some of the games’ combat, stealth mechanics and environmental puzzles including navigating a group of tiny gnomes across a dangerous path.

“Our goal for Bramble is to create a living and strange world filled with mysterious and mythical creatures. They will not only be a passive part of the world but also an active part of your journey. Some of them will help you, some of them need your help, and some of them just want to eat you! They live in this world and players will interact with their everyday lives.” said Fredrik Selldén, the CEO of Dimfrost. “Our gameplay and storytelling will support that feeling” added Fredrik.

Key Features: 

  • Traverse the treacherous land of Bramble on an emotional journey to find your sister, while uncovering the secret of a dark curse. 
  • Story-driven gameplay with stunning cinematic moments and ‘David and Goliath’ boss fights.
