When Alba visits her grandparents on a Mediterranean island, she is excited for a summer of exploring with her friend Ines. But when she sees an animal in danger, she realises the island needs her help. The developer describes it as "a personal story inspired by the team's own fond memories of childhood summers in the Mediterranean. A game about how together, we can make a difference.”
As you progress, you work to restore the beaches and wildlife back to their serene beauty. Meeting characters and taking pictures to help you on your way. By doing this you catalogue flora and fauna.
The result is a lovely little adventure game that combines the feel of the children's TV show Balamory with Pokemon animal collecting. Running through it all is a story about saving a nature reserve which gives you a reason to talk to the different characters in the village. The perfect game to share with a child, or for older children to enjoy as their first adventure game.

This game has helped players develop their Disposition and Knowledge as part of the following pathways:
5+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Although very young players may struggle to find all the wildlife, with help from a sibling, parent or guardian they can enjoy exploring and meeting the people in the village. Really young players often find a controller rather than a touch screen is easier (although again some help is needed).
