Meibi Studio Released iOS Game “Angel Puzzle”

Angel Puzzle on iOS

Meibi Studio in Japan collaborated with 40 cute Japanese models to create an iOS game Angel Puzzle. In this game you can play 11 types of puzzle totaling 60 levels that train your wit and hand reflexes.

Game Angel Puzzle

In Angel Puzzle, you as the protagonist found an ancient tomb in a library. It turns out that the book holds secret for angels that used to roam the Earth. By solving the puzzles, you can collect photos of those angels and reveal the mystery surrounding their disappearance from this Earth.

The early levels serve as a warmup and you will meet well known puzzles like jigsaw puzzles. However as the difficulty increases you will encounter many new and challenging puzzles. In one type of the puzzle, you have to connect all the same shapes from the starting point to the endpoint. It sounds simple enough, but if you miscalculate you will find that there are some shapes left behind and you have to think of another solution that works.

Game Angel Puzzle

A unique feature of this game is the ability to vote for your favorite models. Voting points can be obtained by finishing certain levels and the model ranks can be viewed real time. Meibi Studio plans to release extra content or new games with their most voted models.

The Android version will also be released soon. In the meantime, if you have an iPhone you can download the game here.

Meibi Project is now holding a collaborative photo-painting exhibition in Nagoya, Japan from 14 March to 11 April 2015. The photos are the portrait works of the Indonesian photographer and Meibi Project’s founder Agro Rachmatullah, whose aim is to introduce more about the personalities, dreams, and achievements of Japanese women through the medium of art. The paintings are sent by various collaborating artists from outside Japan.

Since starting Meibi Project in 2011, we received many fanarts from around the world. We are really happy that our portraits inspire people to create more art, so this time we want to return the favor by giving artists all around the world the chance to exhibit their drawings in Japan. For the first stage of this exhibition we received 68 submissions with various styles ranging from anime to the Japanese traditional ukiyo-e. If you like to draw, you can still participate for the second part of the exhibition by sending your art here!

Here are the 11 paintings that were selected for the first part:

Each photographer interprets the same scene and object differently by using a different focal length, composition, and camera settings. It’s really interesting to see how the resulting photo gets reinterpreted differently by various artists through their drawings.

If you want your painting to be exhibited in Japan, you can still submit for the second part here! We will post a more thorough coverage of the event at a later time. For those who didn’t get selected this time, we will post the images on our Facebook and Twitter page. Once again, congratulations for all who passed!
