Summer In Mara, a tropical adventure game inspired by the likes of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and Stardew Valley, has managed to smash its Kickstarter goal in less than 48 hours to secure a release on Switch.

The game has you taking care of your very own island, customising it however you like and exploring "an open ocean full of places to travel and people to meet and trade with". The Wind Waker influence is clear to see, from the cartoony ocean vibes to the upbeat soundtrack, and this single-player experience is said to focus around both farming and crafting, too.

In just one week, more than 1,500 backers have pledged their support to the game, with funds now nearing €40,000 with 23 days still left to go. The project still hopes to reach new stretch goals, which promise to bring new features, minigames and extra content.


If you're interested in learning more, or wish to pledge your support before the crowdfunding project comes to an end, feel free to check out the Kickstarter page right here. The next stretch goal is set to add a surfing minigame, which sounds mighty fun to us.


The game is aiming for a September 2019 release on Switch so, all going well, you won't have too long to wait to get your hands on it.
