Summer doesn’t begin until the end of the month, but if you ask me, it’s summer-vibe time the moment the calendar rolls over to June. If you’re already locked into the summer spirit the way I am and looking for the right game to complement your mood, then Alba: a Wildlife Adventure may be for you! Set on a Mediterranean island, this summertime romp through lush natural environments is all about exploration, discovery, and preservation of a gorgeous natural world and its inhabitants.

 

 

Here’s more on the game from its official eShop page:


“Join Alba as she visits her grandparents on a Mediterranean island. She is ready for a peaceful summer of wildlife exploration with her friend Ines, but when she sees an animal in danger, she realises she needs to do something about it! 

This is truly a Mediterranean paradise if you ignore all the litter! From the idyllic beaches to the ancient castle overlooking the town a whole island is ready to be explored. With Ines and your grandfather – who is a total bird nerd – by your side, you can start the movement to save the island. Maybe even the world after that.

What you can expect:

  • Great music. We worked with Lorena Alvarez, to make a soundtrack that is equal parts Spain and Amazing.
  • This is a Chillectathon. Make your time on the island your own and experience the adventure at your own pace. No rush.
  • A place you want to stay. We based this on our childhood summers and, well, we wish we could go back. This island is the next best thing.
  • Honestly, a feel-good game about running around and doing good deeds.”

 

Alba: A Wildlife Adventure is available now on the Nintendo Switch eShop for $19.99.
