"The Lion's Song" is set against the backdrop of early 20th century Austria with every episode following a different character. Each of those is 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. The choices players make in "The Lion's Song" will have a direct impact on the storylines of all episodes and ultimately determine if the protagonists do find the success they are working for.
"The Lion's Song: Episode 1 – Silence" (already released at the time of submission) tells the story of Wilma, a talented young musician student. Wilma's talent was discovered by Arthur Caban, a wealthy university professor, who invited her to Vienna. Arthur is profoundly convinced Wilma is going to play a major part in the future of modern music. Since Wilma is fighting writer's block trying to finish her career defining composition, Arthur sends her to a solitary alpine cabin to recover her inspiration and muse.
Will Wilma be able to finish her breakthrough composition in this small cabin, surrounded by high mountains and stormy weather? In her creative crisis Wilma suddenly has an unexpected encounter.
