About Mi’pu’mi & Howl:

Over the past decade Mi'pu'mi has had the privilege of supporting global AAA productions as well as franchises from clients such as Io-Interactive, Remedy Entertainment, Ubisoft, MachineGames & Red Bull. Howl, a turn-based tactics game, is Mi’pu’mi’s latest original game. Players take control of a deaf prophetess and have to survive in a world afflicted by an acoustic plague that turns people into beasts. Every step must be well planned ahead to outmaneuver the adversaries. 

Howl's graphics are created using "Living Ink", a fluid, dynamic watercolor art style that illustrates the story as you play. Players make their way through a dark fantasy world, fighting to rid the land of the plague and find their lost brother.

Key Features:

Tactics: Players must always stay one step ahead of the enemy's actions in order to succeed in the turn-based puzzles. Players need to arrange their moves up to 6 turns in advance and watch their plan play out. One wrong decision can put the heroine in dangerous situations and there is a lot at stake.
Unique visual style: Through "living ink" the beautiful folktale world becomes alive as you play.
Unlockable skills: New skills can be unlocked and improved to stay on par with the opponents, like shadow step, exploding shot and more.
Challenging: 60 levels in four chapters are waiting to be freed from evil, save villagers from the claws - or howl - of the wolves

Howl will be released on January 23, 2024 for PlayStation®5, Xbox Series X|S and Epic Games Store and is available for pre-order now. The versions for Nintendo Switch™ and PC via Steam are already available digitally.
