Munin – Demo now available
Hamburg, Germany / Lisbon, Portugal; July 1st, 2014 – As of today 6 levels of Munin, the exciting 2D puzzle platformer from Gojira and publisher Daedalic Entertainment, are now available as a demo. The demo will also be available on Steam, as well as a download:
In Munin, players enter a fantastic world of the legends of the Norse gods, because the raven Munin is one of the two loyal messengers of Odin, the father of the gods. But due to a capricious prank by Loki, he has been transformed into a little human girl, and his feathers have been scattered across the nine worlds of Yggdrasil. The players’ task is to find the feathers and restore the raven to his true form.
Munin combines classic side-scrolling gameplay with screen elements which can be rotated 360°. By turning the different screen elements, players open blocked paths, overcome obstacles, and create new passages. Thus columns are converted into bridges, and the ceiling of the cave suddenly becomes a safe bridge. Along with classic switches and moving levels, the physical properties of a wide variety of objects in the game can also be put to clever use in order to move forward, giving Munin even more game depth. Liquids such as lava or water begin to flow thanks to rotation, stones and boulders fall into the depths thanks to gravity. In order to help players keep from becoming disoriented, Norse runes point the way to the lost feathers.
Thanks to the extraordinary game worlds and a total of 77 exciting puzzle levels, Munin offers a unique mix of Norse mythology and tricky puzzles. With around seven hours of game fun, Daedalic Entertainment provides a long-lasting game experience.
Munin is now available for US$ 9.99/ GBP 6.99/ RUR 249.00/ €9.99. On July 7th versions for iOS and Android-tablets will also be published.
