Summer in Mara updated to Version 1.9

Fast travel, crafting, and cooking!

We already talked about the next big update for Summer in Mara, but that was before it was out. The update, Version 1.9, is now here. Check out a recap on what the update includes below.

Fast travel: Now Koa can travel immediately to any island that you have discovered previously. This way, you don’t have to go from quadrant to quadrant, avoiding loading screens.

Crafting and cooking. We thought it’s a good idea to let Koa craft and cook in other islands, near to the main characters. Now you can craft/cook in Taka’s restaurant, Akaji forge and Dunna’s island.
