The protagonist, Koa, will be farming, crafting, traveling across a vast ocean in her boat, meeting people, and trading.

Features include:

  • More than 150 quests to make the world a better place.
  • Over 20 characters to meet and trade with. Befriend them!
  • More than 130 inventory items to craft, use, and trade.
  • Improve your boat, make it bigger and faster.
  • Unlock and acquire new skills and abilities for Koa, helping her to craft, trade and explore in an easy-RPG system.
  • Day and night cycle with climate events.

Chibig Studio has promised that Summer in Mara will be full of things for players to do. The game will be translated in up to nine languages including Japanese and Russian.
