A commentary trailer for Mira and the Legend of the Djinns has been released. This new Metroidvania action platformer coming to Steam features gorgeous artwork and a story steeped in rich Moroccan folklore.
In the trailer, lead programmer Rachid Hassani discusses the cultural influences and considerations that played a part in bringing the game to life, and how his upbringing in Morocco helped to shape the narrative and character cast.
Drawing deep inspiration from Moroccan and Amazigh culture, language, and spiritual traditions, Mira and the Legend of the Djinns is an adventure that tells the tale of Yuba, an avid treasure hunter, and a mysterious Djinn named Mira, the first Djinn discovered in generations.
The two journey together across the devastated world of Fallen Amazgesh, a world of ruins, to uncover her lost memories, and in turn, what happened to her land and its people. To this end, Yuba and Mira agree to form a spiritual Bond, something no human has done outside of fabled legends.
Key Features of Mira and the Legend of the Djinns:
