Our Animals

Beasts of Maravilla Island places an emphasis on interacting with animals in a meaningful, non-violent way. The team has worked with experts at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles to learn about compelling animal behaviors and applied those learnings to make our interactions as great as possible. Each magical creature on Maravilla Island pulls inspiration from real animals and their behaviors on Earth, despite their otherworldly appearance. We hope you enjoy engaging with our animals as much as we loved creating them!

Our Team

The Beasts of Maravilla Island team is composed of recent graduates and current students from The University of Southern California’s Games Program, Cal State Fullerton, and Art Center. The team met through the USC Advanced Games Project program and has since continued development together under Banana Bird Studios, LLC. 

We are a group of passionate, nature-loving developers who believe that games need more opportunities for unique, non-violent interactions with creatures.
