Mundaun

Game info

Mundaun is lovingly hand-pencilled horror adventure created by Swiss illustrator and programmer, Michel Zielger, the founder and sole developer of Hidden Fields. Mundaun is a tale set on the darker side of the Swiss Alps, with a story rooted in the chilling folklore of the region. Players follow a young man who travels to the town of Mundaun to investigate the mysterious circumstances behind his grandfather's death. Along the way, he discovers that something old and diabolic is haunting the eccentric residents of the town. Players will solve a number of hand-crafted puzzles to uncover the secrets of Mundaun, and must also avoid triggering the game's unique fear system, a "cause-and-effect" gameplay feature which impacts players if they become scared.

Hidden Fields

Hidden Fields is a one-man game studio founded by programmer and illustrator Michel Ziegler and located in idyllic Lucerne, Switzerland. The aim of Hidden Fields is to create game worlds that are truly unique in aesthetics and content for players to explore. Founder Michel Ziegler studied computer science at the Hochschule für Technik in Rapperswil and worked some years as a software engineer, before moving on to study Illustration Fiction at the Hochschule Luzern Design & Kunst. He has since honed his craft on numerous, unreleased projects, and Mundaun is his first full-length game release with interactive entertainment publisher MWMi.
