Beasts of Maravilla Island Releasing June 2021
Banana Bird Studios and Whitethorn Games recently announced that their upcoming wildlife photography game, Bests of Maravilla Island, will launch this June. The game will be available on Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, Steam, as well as Xbox platforms.
Beasts of Maravilla Island is a 3D adventure game starring a young wildlife photographer traversing the magical ecosystem of the island. Players must help her to discover extraordinary creatures, learn their behaviors, and photograph their majesty. Over the course of her journey, she will fill her grandfather’s photobook with the magic of Maravilla Island.
The game will feature over 50 extraordinary creatures and plants to photograph. Each of them will feature their own appearance and behavior and with names like the Sparkling Lamp lily, Maravillan Mango Kakapo, and Prism-Winged Butterfly there are certainly some unique ones to look out for. However, to get to them the player will have to traverse the beautiful world freely by running and climbing. There will also be puzzles to solve and these rely on your cooperation with the animals. Some examples that have been revealed so far include playing hide and seek with an Otter Crocodile and helping a Biard Monkey find his perfect match.
Beasts of Maravilla Island promises to feature three distinctive ecological zones for players to explore, namely the Singing Jungle, the Glimmering River, and the Painted Plateau. Of course, each of these will contain its own unique flora and fauna for players to uncover. While taking photos of Maravilla’s many mysteries players are also able to choose an angle, adjust the height and the zoom for that perfect breathtaking shot. Even if you take multiple photos of each animal you can curate your photo book to your liking and select the best ones to showcase.
