Koa and the Five Pirates of Mara (Talpa Games, Chibig) is a 3D platformer set in the tropical archipelago of Mara. Koa is the protagonist, and she must jump her way through the islands in her quest to recover stolen pirate loot. But do not let its cozy aesthetic fool you. There is plenty of room for challenges in Mara!

Mara’s archipelago has eight different worlds, each filled with dazzlingly diverse landscapes. From white sand beaches to icy mountains, there are countless places to visit and explore in this charming adventure.


Koa’s cozy, warm setting fits perfectly with its gameplay. Well, not always. Even though anyone can jump through the islands no matter the skills, this game has no shortage of speedrunning challenges.


The landscapes are just as colourful and vivid as Koa’s landscape. Thanks to a handful of skins, you will be able to customize her look and even her boat. Get ready to set a trend in Mara’s archipelago!


Koa and the Five Pirates of Mara received 282,634 € from 5,086 backers. This Kickstarter campaign is the fourth successful crowdfunding experience for Chibig, but we are sure it will not be the last one.


Values delivered

Chibig and Talpa trusted Catness Games to port Koa and the Five Pirates of Mara to PS4, PS5 and Xbox. This is the first time we have teamed up with other Spanish studios, and the results speak for themselves.

Albeit not being a graphically-demanding game for Unreal Engine’s standards, Koa and the Five Pirates of Mara’s agile jumping requires top-notch optimization. And that is exactly what we have done on all platforms.

Unreal Engine is the most powerful 3D technology on the market. No other software offers as much realism in its textures, shaders, lighting and effects. Unreal Engine is ideal for virtual reality (VR) experiences thanks to its superb graphic options. For this and many other reasons, it has become the engine used by most triple-A studios. Beyond its power, Epic Games’ technology stands out as one of the most intuitive when it comes to prototyping. All thanks to Blueprint Visual Scripting, a feature that allows programming without code. With these virtues, it is not surprising that almost 8 million developers choose Unreal Engine. As for Catness, we have been using it for nearly a decade. Thanks to that experience, every game we work with, no matter its size, will have the resources to look like a triple-A.

We at Catness Games have specialized in Unreal Engine since our first day. Although we can work with engines like Unity, we prefer to focus on what we mastered over almost a decade. Thus, we can offer the most optimal results. It is a matter of quality, transparency and honesty.

Catness Games bets on Unreal Engine because we mastered it. We have been developing, porting, and publishing video games powered by Epic Games’ engine for over a decade. We know that we will help you quicker and more efficiently if your game is #MadeWithUnreal. Thus, we prefer to be honest. However, we can also work with Unity. Our team has several programmers specialized in this engine. Besides, marketing is one of the core elements of publishing, but it does not depend on any particular technology.

The recent rise of virtual reality (VR) in the video game industry has not gone unnoticed. We acknowledge the potential of this technology. For this reason, we have already worked with it both in video games and architecture. Although we have more experience with traditional platforms, we guarantee the same efficiency with a VR project. Of course, the same can be said with augmented reality (AR)!
