astragon Entertainment takes over publishing for Mi'pu'mi Games epic tactics tale Howl

Düsseldorf, July 27, 2023 – Düsseldorf-based video game developer and publisher astragon Entertainment and Viennese developer studio Mi'pu'mi Games today announced a partnership. This involves astragon Entertainment taking over the publishing for the turn-based adventure Howl, a tactical-narrative folktale in which players have to rid the lands of a plague, the eponymous "Howl". Howl is scheduled for release in 2023 for PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. A demo version is already available for PC on Steam.

"We are very pleased to be able to work with the extremely talented team from Mi'pu'mi Games. With Howl, they present a fairy-tale adventure that stands out above all with unique visuals and tells an exciting story. The title will further diversify our extensive publishing portfolio," says Julia Pfiffer, Co-CEO of astragon Entertainment.  

"With astragon Entertainment we have found a strong publishing partner. Howl will benefit from astragon's many years of experience in the areas of producing, marketing, distribution and publishing, and we are very much looking forward to working with them," says Martin Filipp, COO and Managing Director of Mi'pu'mi Games.

About Howl:

Howl is a turn-based, tactical as a deaf prophetess to survive in a world afflicted by an acoustic plague that turns people into wolves. 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 battles. 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 fairy tale world becomes alive as you play.

    Unlockable skills: New skills can be unlocked and improved to stay on par with the opponent.

    Challenging: 60 levels in four chapters are waiting to be freed from evil.

Howl is scheduled for release in 2023 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch and PC.
