Wishlist Summer in Mara on Steam

Does The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker meets Stardew Valley sound like your type of game? Well, that’s exactly what the tropical adventure, Summer in Mara, is shaping up to be. It’s a winning combination if ever there was one and, judging from the reception on Kickstarter, a lot of players agree. It’s the tale of a girl named Koa who lives in peace on her home island. However, she has always felt the call of the ocean and the urge to explore, so she sets out to do just that with her boat.

Players who take to the ocean will be able to discover new island, where there are new people to meet and trade with. Of course, Kao could also just stay on her own island to farm and craft new tools, but she is going to have to venture out of her comfort zone if she wants to save the ocean. The ocean brings life, but it is also in danger due to an evil corporation that is eager to conquer it and exploit all its resourced.

Summer in Mara has a modest Kickstarter goal of $22,803 goal and, at the time of writing this, close to 700 backers have already stepped up and contributed more than 80% of this total. Backers who pledge about $15 US can look forward to a digital download of Summer in Mara for the PC, PS4 or Switch, along with their name in the credits and some other goodies. Those who are able to spare a bit more cash can select some of the higher tiers that include everything from an artbook and OST to a diorama of Mara beaches, Summer in Mara Plushie and believe it or not, a tropical ukulele.

Summer in Mara is a single-player game that will allow players to adventure at their own pace. It definitely looks like a title to keep your eye on if you are looking for a calm and relaxing experience and the handmade look of the game also sets it apart. Judging by the features, it’s not going to be lacking in content either. Players will get to tackle more than 150 quests to make the world a better place and interact with more than 20 characters. In addition to trading, the game will also have crafting, the ability to improve your boat, new skills and abilities for Kao as well as a day and night cycle.

For more information about the island that you will get to explore and the characters you’ll run into, go take a look at the Summer in Mara Kickstarter page. This isn’t the first time that Chibig Studio has turned to Kickstarter and their previous campaign, which was for Deiland, was a huge success. The game will launch for PC, Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch, but if the Kickstarter Campaign reaches its stretch goal, it will also make the leap to Xbox One.

Check out the video below to see what can be expected from this charming looking game and don’t forget to give the developers a follow on their social media channels to stay up to date with their progress.

Out now on Kickstarter and in need of some love is Witch Boy Magical Piece from Rosemary House and Sekai Project. In contrast to most of the previous titles from Sekai Project, this localization falls in the Boy’s Love genre. Although already Greenlit by the Steam community, Witch boy Magical Piece is still in need of some serious support on Kickstarter to have a chance of reaching its funding goal.

Currently powering its way to success on Kickstarter is Prismata from Lunarch Studios. It is a hybrid strategy title that fuses elements of collectible card games, tabletop strategy as well as elements of real-time strategy games. However, by focusing on easy to learn gameplay and fast paced matches the game aims to be more accessible than the genres from which it draws its inspiration. This doesn’t mean that the game is lacking in depth though as it has plenty of features that will appeal to players who love strategy titles.

Mechs & Mercs - Black Talons (Camel 101)

With games such as Mechs & Mercs: Black Talons from Camel 101 looming on the horizon it would seem that 2015 is going to be another bumper year for gaming. I certainly can’t think of a much better way to kick things off than a real-time strategy game featuring mercenaries and giant mechs. Set to release early in January, Mechs & Mercs aims to offer an extensive campaign mode where players get to take control of the Black Talons mercenary company.
