App description: The Lions Song is an award-winning adventure series - with four easily accessible episodes - making its highly anticipated debut on iOS.

The Lions Song is an episodic adventure game created by Vienna-based independent developer Mipumi Games. The Lions Song 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. Each episode follows a different character, that possesses an exceptional mind and the game draws players into a story of personal struggle for creativity, human connections and inspiration:

A talented composer suffering from writer's block just before her breakthrough concert, an up-and-coming painter growing through his challenges and a brilliant mathematician trying to make her voice heard in a men's world. While episode 4 will take players on a mysterious train journey that connects the storylines of all previous episodes. Emotions will run high as players make connections with each character, and work to navigate and experience their lives in different ways with different outcomes.

The choices players make in this episode will have a direct impact on the storylines of all future and past episodes, connecting The Lions Song to one overarching narrative. The decisions made will ultimately determine if the protagonists find the success they are working for.

In 2016 the game was awarded with the German Developer Award for Indie Game of the Year and in 2017 it received an Honourable Mention from IGF in the category Excellence in Narrative.
Originally created as a Ludum Dare project in 2014, The Lions Song features a striking art direction and a unique setting.

The Lions Song supports iCloud and iCloud Drive. If you would like to keep up to date with your latest save games, please enable both features in your settings of your phone or tablet.

I clap hands for this playable piece of art. Im sooo impressed.
This game is like a telltale game done in a artistic way with a deep story showing the struggle of artists to reach a vision.
I really loved the first 2 chapters that gave me allready about 3 hours of gametime. I still have to play 2 chapters to finalize the first season of The Lion Song but there is no way this game can turn out to be bad anymore.
This game did touch my feelings in a very deep way.

Great game, but the port could use some tightening up. The game doesn't seem to put the phone in standby mode if it's idle, but right about when the screen should in theory turn off, the game crashes and the phone stays on regardless. Also, when that happens, the game seemingly forgets it's respecting the iPhone's silence button once you fire the game up again.

Everyone's favorite chamber of death, doom and decomposition.

Does it heavily rely on QTEs like all Telltale's games?

Anyone else having problems? Mine crashed 4x in 20 min and I'm about ready to give up.

I told the developer. Hopefully they can shine some light on what's causing mine to crash.

I'm playing on an ipad mini3 if that helps. Hope they can sort it out for you, we all know how frustrating frequent crashing is.
