Austrian indie developer Mipumi Games has launched the fourth and final episode, Closure, of their narrative adventure game The Lion’s Song on Steam (PC, Mac, Linux). Parallel to this milestone, the full season of the award-winning adventure series debuts today on iOS, Android and the Mac Store.
The Lion’s Song is a narrative adventure game series about creativity and its demons, with each of the first three episodes taking a closer look at a fictional Austrian artist or scientist. Steeped in culturally vibrant 20th century history, the game lets players travel back in time and gives them an intimate insight into the creative struggle of the young composer Wilma, the haunted painter Franz, and the genius mathematician Emma. The season’s finale, Episode 4 – Closure, will take players on a mysterious train journey that connects the storylines of all previous episodes. What stories will these four strangers share along the way, and where will their journey end?
“Each of the first three episodes of The Lion’s Song featured its own little standalone adventure with a unique protagonist, characters and narrative. Our aim was to let players dive into a rich world of fascinating stories with very different endings, which encourages them to replay each episode and take alternate routes,” said Mipumi CEO Gregor Eigner. “For Episode 4 we’re taking a different approach, bringing the first three stories together in a way that we hope will offer players a satisfying conclusion to the path they have chosen.”
The Season Pass for The Lion’s Song, containing all four episodes, is available on Steam (PC, Mac, Linux) and the Mac Store for $9.99 / £8.99 / €9.99. Alternatively, on Steam, Episode 1 – Silence is available for free and the other episodes can be purchased separately for $3.99 / £3.49 / €3.99 each. On iOS and Android, The Lion’s Song will be released as a premium title containing all four episodes for $4.99 / £4.99 / €5.49.
