Milo and the Magpies is an atmospheric point-and-click adventure about a cat finding its way home, out now on mobile

Indie developer Johan Scherft has announced the official mobile launch of Milo and the Magpies on iOS and Android today. Players will step into the shoes of a curious cat in this atmospheric point-and-click adventure in order to find their way back home after a not-so-pleasant encounter with some magpies on a roof.

In Milo and the Magpies, players will go through different backyards and find their way home via a mix of point-and-click and hidden object elements. Milo will have to sneak around neighbours' yards while solving puzzles (and enjoying the scenery) along the way.

Developer Johan Scherft is also a talented Dutch Painter himself, lending his expertise to create the charming visuals of the game. The hand-painted artwork and the animations are accompanied by a relaxing soundtrack, where every backyard has its own theme song as composed by Victor Butzelaar.

There are nine gardens for Milo to explore and a cast of colourful characters to meet, and while the whole game lasts only about an hour and a half, it's supposedly made to be a calming visual experience on mobile.
