Summer in Mara sets the tropical stage with a story trailer


Sailing takes me away

Summer in Mara is a smile-inducing adventure about farming, crafting, and sailing between islands, and if you could use some of those sun-soaked vibes right now, you should watch today's story trailer.

The game centers around Koa, a lone child who yearns to explore beyond her home island. It has genre staples like crop-raising, fishing, and cooking, but the setting – a tropical archipelago – sets it apart.

Chibig, the studio behind Summer in Mara, put a lot of time into fleshing out the characters. "You'll talk and trade with over twenty characters, each one with their own story and lives. They'll give you quests, hints about the world, or just anecdotes about their experiences and travels. Getting to know them is a significant part of the game, so we put much effort into making them unique and exciting."

I wish I could go into more specifics, but for now, if you're curious after watching this trailer, I'd recommend playing the Prologue demo on Steam for a first-hand account. It's worth your time.

I'll have a review of Summer in Mara ready for the June 16 launch on PC and Nintendo Switch.
