Alba: A Wildlife Adventure will come to PC, consoles and Apple Devices later in 2020.
Do you know what we could all use right now? A lovely bit of time spent outside, on a beautiful Mediterranean island, getting back to nature. But that’s obviously not a good idea at this precise moment in time, in spite of everything reopening. (No, we don’t think those cheap flights to the Balearic Islands are a good idea. Just because something is open doesn’t mean you have to go.)
One alternative is to use video games to get that escape. There’s the wonderful Animal Crossing: New Horizons, of course, but that can be a bit of a chore. There’s always the danger that turns into The Wolf of Wall Street over turnip prices.
A beautiful new island adventure, then, a tale of getting back to nature and reconnecting with wildlife could be exactly what the doctor ordered. Enter Alba: A Wildlife Adventure, a dreamy new title from the developer of Monument Valley and Assemble With Care.
Alba is a little girl with a big heart!
☀️ Experience a magical Mediterranean Summer filled with friendship, family and nature.
🐦 Alba: a Wildlife Adventure is coming to PC, consoles & Apple Devices.

Here are the limited details we have about Alba thus far:
“Alba: a Wildlife Adventure is a new tale from the creators of Monument Valley and Assemble with Care. When Alba 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!”
Beautiful island environments? Check. Chill outdoorsy gameplay? Check. Positive interactions with animals? Check. It ticks all the cosy little boxes.
Expect to see Alba: A Wildlife Adventure on PC, consoles and Apple devices in Winter 2020.
We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
