Alba: A Wildlife Adventure is a photo-snapping chill time from the makers of Monument Valley

All the fun of bird watching without white ladies calling the cops on you

I’ve really dropped the ball covering games for Apple Arcade this year, even though its selection of titles has only improved in recent weeks and months. It’s really living up to its expectations, bringing subscribers fun, ad-and-microtransaction-free experiences that are all too rare in the mobile arena. There have been a lot of fun games to hit the platform recently, but the best may be yet to come.

Developer ustwo Games today dropped a gameplay trailer for its upcoming title Alba: A Wildlife Adventure. The game features young, precocious child Alba who’s on vacation visiting her grandparents on an island in the Mediterranean. As an animal lover, she wants to document all of the island’s fauna with her smartphone, but when she sees critters in distress, she’ll have to reach out to the town folk to help save them.

Alba: A Wildlife Adventure releases December 11, 2020 for Apple Arcade and PC. Console versions are also apparently in the works.
