ARTE announces its new video game The Merlies

 The Merlies is a cute post-human 2D adventure game set in a big world from a teeny-tiny point of view with exploration, platforming and village building.

Publisher and co-producer ARTE France and co-producer/developer Darjeeling are proud to announce their new game The Merlies, imagined by Cosmografik, creator of Type:Rider and Vandals, both published by ARTE France.

A first reveal teaser is available here:

In The Merlies, you play as a whole village of tiny birds, on a mission to make sense of a way too big and unknown world filled with ruins of a forgotten society.

While exploring, you’ll meet and recruit new Merlies, each with unique skills and purpose. Bring them together and collaborate to discover items, create your community and upcycle scraps to build your very own wacky village !

The Merlies is a tale of resilience, told from the tiniest point of view. Discover the wonders of a gigantic and colorful world filled with details and overcome obstacles with your Merlies.

Scout the land for scraps and treasures from a bygone era and discover new ways to interact with your environment !

The Merlies will be available in 2025.
