Posted on March 7, 2024

11 bit studios has this morning announced Creatures of Ava, co-developed by Spanish studios Inverge and Chibig. Creatures of Ava is an action adventure where you will tame creatures to save their world from a life-consuming infection.

The game is set for release in 2024, initially available on Xbox Series X|S and Windows 11 PC, and also with Xbox Game Pass for console and PC Game Pass. It looks like a beautiful and adorable setting, with a variety of cute critters and unique mechanics while exploring the world. Check out the trailer!

“Creatures of Ava is a unique creature saver game that invites you to explore a world teeming with wild beings. These once peaceful creatures now succumb to an unknown infection, compelling them to behave aggressively. Once healed, they form a unique bond that allows you to use their skills for traversing the planet and solving environmental challenges. With non-aggressive combat mechanics designed for healing rather than defeating, and indigenous Flute melodies that you play to tame creatures, the game further emphasizes the creature saver nature of the experience.” says the press release.

“Our hero is Vic, a 22-year-old adventurer navigating an immersive expedition alongside researcher, Tabitha. Together, you confront the recurring infection—referred to as “the withering” by the local population known as the Naam—threatening Ava’s inhabitants. The gameplay encourages curiosity-driven exploration of its distinct ecosystems, such as the colorful Nari jungle or mysterious Mâruba swamp, creating an interconnected world.”
