We’re not quite sure how The Girl From Arkanya missed us back in August. This 2D Zelda-style RPG comes from Peruvian developers Arkanya Games, and was successfully funded on Kickstarter within a day, smashing an initial $10,000 goal to earn $43,453 overall. It’s coming to Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One, as well as Steam and Itch.io.
If you’ve not come across The Girl From Arkanya, the story is set in 1167 A.D and focuses on Marisa, a young adventurer within the Amazonia. Looking to become the world’s greatest treasure hunter, she’ll be accompanied by her capybara companion, Kapi, letting you switching between both characters to solve puzzles. Before you ask, yes, Kapi can also be petted.
Arkanya Games has been hard at work since the crowdfunding drive concluded and has now released several samples from the OST. You can check out more via their official YouTube channel, which contains 5 songs right now and honestly, we’re really liking what we’ve heard.
There’s no release date at this time, but we’re quite interested to see how this game further develops, so we’ll keep you updated as we learn more.
