Releasing games during E3 is always a risky proposition, as everyone’s attention is focused elsewhere, but that doesn’t stop plenty of publishers from putting new titles out there. Daedalic has released the 2D puzzle platformer Munin for PC, Mac, and Linux today. The game is developed by Portuguese developer Gojira and has players guide the raven Munin who has been transformed into a little girl. Players solve puzzles in the land of the Norse gods, and there are 77 puzzles to solve. Munin costs $9.99 and is available on Steam, and an iOS and Android version will be released on July 7th.

Hamburg, Germany / Lisbon, Portugal; June 10th, 2014. Today Munin, Odins faithful raven, starts its journey through the nine realms of Yggdrasil to find its lost wings. Gojira and Daedalic Entertainment are releasing the exciting 2D puzzle platformer today for PC, MAC and Linux worldwide.

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 its 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 worldwide for PC, MAC and Linux at the price of 9.99 USD/ 6.99 GBP/ 249.00 RUR/ 9.99 EUR.

On July 7th, versions for iOS and Android-Tablets will follow on App Store, Google Play and on the Amazon App Store.
