Midli is a narrative-driven Breakout-inspired adventure, with a relaxing yet dark atmosphere, where you collect the soul fragments of lingering spirits, to uncover their stories and help them move on. You play as Heli, a mysterious girl, who guides the fates of the spirits stuck in Midli, as she discovers a story of her own.
Trying to use the retro mechanics of Arkanoid games and with the aim of avoiding simple and casual games, they chose to add some narrative and depth to their project, offering something a little different to the typical mobile gaming experience.
They were inspired by the Korean drama Guardian: The Lonely and Great God, especially in how this show does the storytelling and with some interesting characters and lore dealing with the bridge between our world and the next. To make the cutscenes, although we will find Midli much darker in many ways, their artist was also inspired by the work of Hayao Myazaki (Co-founder of Ghibli Studies)
