The Merlies | Digital productions ARTE
A wonderfully decorated video game based on an original idea by Cosmografik
The Merlies is an adventure game based on exploration and building your own village: as you wander around, explore the surroundings, find scraps left by a lost civilization and assemble them ingeniously in order to bring comfort and harmony to your tribe.
This game conveys resilience, team spirit, hope and environmental awareness in stunning and refined graphics with a hand-made touch.
Explore the world with your squad of courageous Merlies and unlock unique skills. Will solidarity and courage be enough to explore the multiple biomes and unravel their mysteries?
