Gregor Eigner
CEO Mi’pu’mi Games

Mi’pu’mi Games is a Vienna-based independent game development company run by veteran developers with 10+ years industry experience at Rockstar and Ubisoft. The small specialist team collaborates with established AAA productions including the “Hitman” franchise and “Anno”. Now Mi’pu’mi is working on its first independent title: „The Lion´s Song”.

“The Lion’s Song” is an episodic adventure game for PC and mobile. The game is steeped in early 20th century history and focusses on a cast of Austrian artists and scientists with each episode taking a closer look at their intimate struggles with creativity and inspiration. Originally created as a Ludum Dare project in 2014, “The Lion’s Song” features a striking art direction and a unique setting. Four easily accessible episodes are produced for PC/Steam.
This talk will highlight the first year of development of an episodic game that was very well received by the press. The creative struggle of Austrian creators at the turn of the 20th century reached halftime with the recent release of Episode 2. How did it work out so far? What are Mipumi’s learnings and take aways from its first original IP? What needed to be adapted, what needed to be changed? What didn’t work at all? An interesting look behind the scenes where great original games don’t have to be big.
