Beasts of Maravilla Island is a free-to-play adventure game that allows you to explore a 3D fantasy jungle as a wildlife photographer, solve puzzles to discover extraordinary creatures, and engage with their unique personalities in creative ways. The game is currently in development and the full game will be coming soon on PC and Nintendo Switch.
Beasts of Maravilla Island places an emphasis on interacting with animals in a meaningful, non-violent way. Throughout the game, you get to observe different kinds of fantastical animals, understand their behavior and interact with them in creative ways. In order to deliver the best experience to players, the crew is working with experts at the natural history museum to learn about interesting animal behaviors and apply those learnings to make our interactions as great as possible.
We are a group of gamers, enthusiastic developers, and animal lovers from across USC Games, Art Center, and Cal State Fullerton.
Most of the team members of Beasts are from the production team of Plasticity, a critically-acclaimed PC game in 2018. Within a team of 28 members, we have game designers, engineers, artists, audio designers, marketers, game story writers, usability experts and more.
