Step up to the plate in Homerun Miko ⚾
Restore balance to the Spirit Realm as you solve 2d-isometric physics-based puzzles with Hanami the baseball loving shrine maiden.
Homerun Miko is a sporty, spiritual adventure that combines inspiration visually from Hades, puzzle design from the classic Legend of Zelda, and puppet character control from Astral Chain and fighting games.
RESTORE BALANCE TO THE SPIRIT REALM
As daughter to a long line of shrine maidens and baseball prodigy, you'll combine your trusty bat and throwing arm with your newfound spirit ability to seal the snow spirits roaming the Kibashi shrine, while unraveling the story behind your family ritual.
GAIN GUIDANCE AND WISDOM
You are not alone! Kousuke, your fox-spirit guide, will provide hints and backstory to help you solve puzzles and develop an understanding of your duties as the next shrine maiden.
CUTE, COMFORTING, AND CHALLENGING
A cast of colorful, expressive, and comedic characters lay ahead of you! Enjoy hand drawn illustrations and character portraits, an original soundtrack, and the signature banter that signify Hanami and Kousuke's blooming friendship. Can you solve all 24 puzzles?
PUZZLES YOU CAN PLAY AGAIN
The Spirit Realm's rooms may be defined, but the puzzle solutions aren't always. Replay levels from the Level Select to experiment with different routes. Will you be able to find the 4 secret Snowmon?
Turn on the Speedrun Timer toggle in the menu to test your skills and save the Spirit Realm in the blink of an eye! Use your knowledge of the puzzle solutions and Hanami's Spirit ability to figure out the quickest way through the shrine.
Homerun Miko was originally developed by Chonkers HQ in 2020-2021, then a team of 10 University of California Santa Cruz undergraduate students studying computer science and art for game design!
