The Little Soldier Who Dared is a short animation we get to know some of the characters in the game.
Tommy is a little toy soldier like many others. Made from tin, with a red uniform and a key in his back. His role is to march in a straight line to protect Rose’s bedroom. A little beautiful girl, Albert’s daughter. Albert is the man who made the little soldier Tommy. Albert is a brilliant toymaker and he loves to make toys, especially for his beloved Rose.
Another Albert’s brilliant creation is Gertrude: an adventurer who loves to discover ancient civilizations.
The story is set in the Stockholm Toy Convention, where Albert hopes to show his creations.
I’m certainly not going to tell you what happens. I can only tell you that there will be two parallel stories. One during the day and one during the night.
