Mika, created by a handful of talent students at Digipen Institute, is a brilliantly made open world action adventure title that sees you in a strange land full of dangerous obstacles and deadly creatures.
In Mika you play as a wayward girl who has found herself alone on a sci-fi fantasy world full of beautiful scenery, deadly creatures and talking plants. As you explore the serene landscape you come across an artificially intelligent machine, called S.T.E.V.E.N, that becomes your servant and assists you throughout the course of your adventure. S.T.E.V.E.N informs you that you can use telepathy to control him, this becomes your main weapon to fight against the hordes of random enemies you encounter and the evil sect of ninjas in search of S.T.E.V.E.N.
The developers of Mira have done an incredibly job at captivating the sci-fi fantasy genre in sublime detail, using brilliant hues of colour to showcase the landscape and enemies, while staying true to its adventure roots by adding a great blend of action and RPG elements. The story telling of Mika, although vague at first, draws the player in with excitement making you wish to dig deeper into the plot and find out where S.T.E.V.E.N is from and why he ran away from the lands of the future in the first place. The varying enemies in Mira are not only challenging but give the game some great diversity, making gameplay more fast paced when dodging enemy projectiles and obstacles.
All in all it’s a joy taking Mika through this epic, adventure-filled journey. A charming and inventive blend of action platforming and RPG adventuring that will really suck you in.
