Developer Mipumi reveals turn-based tactical folktale Howl for Switch
Watch out for the next full moon
Indie studio Mipumi, known for their work on hit titles Hitman and Control, as well as original indie titles like The Lion’s Song, have revealed their next game. Howl is a turn-based tactical folktale coming to Switch in 2023.
Howl is a turn-based tactical folktale set in medieval times. Alone in a world terrorised by a plague that turns people into wolves, you must use your weapons and your wits to survive, planning up to six steps in advance to outmanoeuvre your opponents. As you plot out your attack, you’ll also craft your own prophecy, weaving a continuous piece of scripture during the fight.
The visuals of Howl are created through ‘living ink’, a flowing artstyle that paints the story as you play. Carve your way through a dark fairytale world, fighting and writing to rid the lands of the plague.
