ustwo games has announce that Alba: A Wildlife Adventure is now available on Apple Arcade and PC via Steam and GOG.com.
Alba is a sunny open-world exploration game about the environment, community and how small actions can make a big difference, from the multi-award winning studio behind Monument Valley and Assemble With Care.
To support Alba’s environmentally conscious message, ustwo games will plant one tree for each copy of the game sold or downloaded, with the goal of planting one million trees. This will be achieved in partnership with Ecologi.
The studio has also joined Count Us In as a founding member with the goal of using their platform to help Alba’s players take climate-positive actions.
Alba: A Wildlife Adventure takes place on the gorgeous island of Pinar del Mar, which was inspired by the development team’s fond memories of the Mediterranean coast and is home to more than 60 animals for players to find and photograph.
Players are cast as Alba, a young girl visiting her grandparents on the island. She is ready for a peaceful summer exploring for local wildlife with her best friend Ines, but when she discovers plans to build a hotel that will endanger the island’s nature reserve, she sets out to stop it.
Players can explore the idyllic island from its sun-soaked coast to its forests, farmland and more. Whether it’s photographing animals, people and places, finding rare wildlife, locating lost pets, inspiring volunteers or repairing broken bird boxes, Alba is never short on ways to help out.
“With Alba we set out to make a game that captures that sense of childhood wonder. A game about wildlife, local communities and the importance of standing up for the environment,” said ustwo games Art Director and Alba’s creative lead David Fernandez Huerta.
“Conservation and fighting climate change are causes that are very close to the hearts of everyone at ustwo games. We’re proud to be backing up Alba’s messages with action in the real world, which we’re achieving by working closely with UN Live as well as our partnerships with Count Us In and Ecologi. We want to be the kind of company Alba herself would be proud to recruit to her cause.”
