Moomin games and apps

Are you a fan of the Moomins, or gaming? How about both? Step into the digital Moominverse and take a look at all the official digital Moomin games and apps out there - including the very first games from the ‘90s and upcoming releases for 2024!

The first time Tove Jansson introduced the Moomin stories to the world was in 1945, when the book The Moomins and the Great Flood was published. Eight novels, three picture books, several comics, and many worldwide Moomin TV animations followed, and today you can find adaptations of the cherished stories in many forms.

But how familiar are you with the digital Moominverse? There is a lot of excitement for 2024 with brand new games being released globally, for PC, console and mobile. The wait for some has been long – the latest console Moomin game was released in Japan in 2009.
