"The Lion’s Song" is a series of self-contained point & click stories. It is set against the backdrop of early 20th century Austria with every episode following a different character. Each of those is an exceptional mind and the game draws players into a story of personal struggle for creativity, human connections and inspiration: a talented composer suffering from writer's block just before her breakthrough concert, an up-and-coming painter growing through his challenges and a brilliant mathematician trying to make her voice heard in a men's world. The choices players make in "The Lion’s Song" will have a direct impact on the storylines of all episodes and ultimately determine if the protagonists do find the success they are working for.
“The Lion’s Song: Episode 3 – Derivation” dives into the scientific world at the beginning of the 20th century – an era of great achievements, but also dark downfalls. On the eve of World War I mathematician Emma Recniczek enters the academic stage to solve a problem revolving around “change”.
In order to discuss her theory with like-minded people Emma tries to gain access to a gentlemen’s club of famous mathematicians. As her request is denied because of her being a woman, she decides to disguise as a man.
Will this metamorphosis help Emma shed light on the problem at the centre of her theory? Will Emil be able to prevail in the circle of leading mathematicians of his time? Moreover, can she maintain her disguise or will it collapse when put to the test?
