Summer in Mara is a mixture of the exploration in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, the farming in Stardew Valley and the visual aspect of Studio Ghibli’s movies. A simple RPG system serves as navigation.

Step into the shoes of diminutive adventurer Koa. Tend your own Island in an ocean called Mara; explore a tropical archipelago full of secrets; go fishing, plant and harvest, chop down trees and build things you need. Interact with more than 20 characters.

Experience day and night cycles and climatic events. Sail the ocean in search of treasures. Unlock new skills and abilities.

Lest things get too happy, you will also confront an evil organization called The Elit that descends on Mara from another planet. It’s out to conquer Mara’s inhabitants and exploit its resources.

From Chibig Studio (Deiland), Summer in Mara will be released in Summer 2019 on PC, PS4 and Nintendo Switch. One of the stretch goals will add Xbox One. Meanwhile, the Kickstrarter campaign will run until March 7, 2019.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal. "I put my heart and soul into my work, and have lost my mind in the process." - Vincent Van Gogh "I need solitude for my writing; not like a hermit - that wouldn't be enough - but like a dead man." - Franz Kafka "I've been to hell and back, my boy." - Susan Ashworth, The Cat Lady
