Aix-en-Provence, France, 24 November 2014 – Independent game developer Game Cognition released today its first cross platform title for Apple devices and Facebook: Island of Mu, a unique mix of city building, creature collection and puzzle combat, set in a luscious 3D animated island.
Players have to restore the magic of the elements, which mysteriously disappeared leaving the world in chaos. They have to hunt, collect, nurture and train the rare creatures of the Island to make them evolve to their “Epic” and “Legend” level, revealing special combat skills. A special Source providing magic for the Island needs to be replenished bringing the village back to its original aspect and making its original inhabitants, the Mugwaïs, grow food, mine for stones and nurture the rare creatures.
Additionally, Island of Mu’s unique puzzle combat mode is like a game in the game, a separate world of new quests only accessible to advanced players that will be brought there via a boat journey.
