Fallen from Asgard: Munin combines Nordic Mythology with Platforming

Daedalic Entertainment announce new puzzle-platformer

Hamburg, Germany & Lisbon, Portugal – 27 th February 2014: Munin the raven, faithful messenger to Odin, now stands stripped of wings and transformed by Loki into a mortal girl. Flightless and determined, she will stride through the nine worlds of Yggdrasil to reclaim the lost feathers and return to Asgard.

From Portuguese developer Gojira and publisher Daedalic Entertainment, Munin is an upcoming 2D puzzle-platformer for Windows and Mac that fuses physics-based puzzles with Nordic mythology.

Munin bolsters the traditional side-scrolling experience with the use of rotating environments to surpass obstacles. By twisting portions of the environment, players will create bridges from pillars, turn walls into floors, and use physics to manipulate boulders, liquid, and lava.

Munin features 77 levels stretching across nine distinct worlds. It will be released for PC and Mac through digital download portals in spring 2014.
