  • Alba: A Wildlife Adventure

From the BAFTA-Award winning studio behind Monument Valley and Assemble with Care comes something entirely new.

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.

 

  • Handcrafted visuals. Every little corner of the island has been looked after with great detail. Trust me, it took us a while to make it
  • Join Alba and Ines to found the AIWRL (really rolls off the tongue doesn't it?), an organisation that can save the island
  • You will need to gather a bunch of volunteers and the town is full of good people. Help them out and convince them to join you
  • There are animals everywhere, can you find all the species?

 

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 is a game that touches on issues we care deeply about. One of these is our relationship with nature. The goal of the early prototypes was to recreate the feeling of going birdwatching. A lot of iteration has gone into the game since then but a core of it would still be recognisable today. The game has always featured a young girl exploring a small open world and taking photographs of birds. Slowly, as the game fleshed out, Alba started to grow in complexity and size. As a result, it became ...

Even a winter gremlin like myself does, occasionally, miss the sun. Fortunately, Alba: A Wildlife Adventure is offering an unseasonable dose of vitamin D with its nostalgic summer holiday. Released this week, Ustwo’s latest is a sweet little island holiday filled with bird-spotting, activism, and restoring some life to this knackered old coastal town. Just mind you pack your sunscreen, kid. (more…)

And it's out there! This is the longest we've spent making a single game. Back in 2018 we didn’t know that this game would turn out like this. Not least of which because nobody expected 2020 would turn out the way it has. What started as a simple exploration to see if we could capture the magic of a birdwatching hike, has become Alba: a Wildlife Adventure, the pre-apocalyptic game some of us sorely need right now. We wanted to take the world we remembered from our summers growing up, and turn it...

UPDATE 4/1/21: In one of the last news stories I wrote back in 2020, I mentioned below how Monument Valley studio Ustwo was planting a tree for every copy of its new game Alba that was either downloaded or sold. Well, a couple of weeks, one broken radiator and several plumber visits later (how was your Christmas break?) there's some good news at least on this front. Ustwo has now said it has ensured over a quarter of a million trees will be planted - 276,490 at the time of writing - which presum...

Alba: A Wildlife Adventure is something a bit different for the folks who previously built Monument Valley and Assemble With Care. Alba is a young girl setting out to help restore her island through some environmental activism and good deeds. We’d previously only seen a tiny teaser trailer, but now Ustwo Games have fished out a new trailer to show it off while announcing a December 11th launch date. (more…)
