Our videos of The Lion's Song

The Lion's Song is an episodic adventure game in which gameplay is somehow limited to the choices you will make. The emphasis is put on narration here and your decisions will affect the character's life. The first episode is available for free on Steam and the 3 remaining parts will cost you €3.99 each if you are not interested in the Season Pass (€9.99). All 4 stories are independent, though apparently all set in Austria in the early 20th century. The title's art style is quite nice we must say, but the sort of white filter applied to the visuals is a bit of a shame as the game lacks contrast because of it. We have captured some footage for you guys to see what it's all about, but the best way to find out is to download the game.

The art style reminds me of old school Sam & Max

Looks cool though, any impressions on this so far?

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX My foremost concern is the quality of game design and user experience. I don't actually care about the exploitation of whales much if it doesn't hurt the game. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX So then top players stop wearing their loot so that they don't get matched with noobs? Sounds like a bad plan. Hopefully anything that implements this stuff leans heavily on ELO first. (1 Hour ago)

    Sdarts Fuck!!! it just came to me, this type of Micro Transactions Match Making (MTMM) based system will mostly be used to explore children and teenagers. And other companies will follow suit. Jesus... (1 Hour ago)

    Sdarts "For example, in one implementation, the system may include a microtransaction engine that arranges matches to influence game-related purchases". Today is a really fucking bad and depressing day. (1 Hour ago)

    docLEXfisti Yes, EA totally ruined that franchise. DS1 was awesome, DS2 was still great, DS3 was... different (3 Hours ago)

    nostradamus *i mean dead space 2. from people who jumped from the first expecting a same game, felt a bit lukewarm a nd a game that was molding it self for the tropes of that gen. (4 Hours ago)
