New trailer gives first look at three creative minds
Greenlight and Start of Production
Release date: Q2 2016
A narrative adventure game in four episodes
"[...] a wonderful short game about the quest for inspiration" - Konstantinos Dimopoulos, RPS
"The Lion's Song is more akin to a finely-honed short story." - Zach Budgor, Kill Screen

The Lion's Song is a series of self-contained point & click short stories connected into an over-arching narrative. Set against the backdrop of early 20th century Austria every episode of this adventure game follows a different character.

Each of these has an exceptional mind and the game draws players into a story of personal struggle for creativity, human connections and inspiration: a talented composer suffering from writer's block just before her breakthrough concert, an up-and-coming painter growing through his challenges and a brilliant mathematician trying to make her voice heard in a men's world. The choices players make in The Lion’s Song will have a direct impact on the storylines of all episodes and ultimately determine if the protagonists find the success they are working for.

In four episodes, the game tells stories about pride, jealousy, misery, apprehension and the power of encouragement through friends, family and serendipitous encounters.

- An episodic story format
- Point & Click controls to explore the scenes and dialogues
- Gorgeous pixel art
- A unique historic setting
- Players are drawn into intimate and emotional stories about the struggles and rewards a creative mind has to offer
- Your choices will alter the course of the respective episode and will have a direct impact on the storylines of all episodes
