Maliki: Poison of the Past – From Comics to Video Games

Ankama, the publisher of popular MMOs Wakfu and Dofus, has teamed up with video game developer Blue Banshee to bring you an exciting new RPG adventure game – Maliki: Poison of the Past. The comic book with the same name was the inspiration for the creation of this game. It will be available on PC and Nintendo Switch. It’s a single-player adventure RPG that focuses on turn-based combat and exploration. You can pre-order Maliki: Poison of the Past today on the independent platform

Maliki: Poison of the Past is the culmination of 20 years of existence of the Maliki comic book. The comic series consists of 8 volumes and has sold over 300,000 copies worldwide. The game is developed by the studio Blue Banshee, co-created by Souillon, the author and creator of Maliki, who adds:

“Maliki has always been a transmedia universe, with the comic book, the novel, music, and animation. Exploring it as a video game was long overdue, it just needed the stars to align (we pushed them a bit…).”

Offering a unique blend of exploration, temporal puzzles, and turn-based combat full of surprises. The game will be fully localized in English.
