Google Maps is about to get a lot more colorful

The design of Google Maps doesn’t get updated very often, so when it does, it’s kind of a big deal.

Kid-Oriented ‘Pooka: Magic and Mischief’ Is a Colorful Open-World Adventure

If you have kids and want to give them a colorful, open-world adventure to enjoy, Pooka: Magic and Mischief might be just the game for you, if you don’t mind its free-to-play monetization system. This upcoming game has players create their own little Pookas, who are, of course, adorable and furry, and then saving the world from the infections Gloom invasion, which is—as expected—gloomy. In a very free-to-play way, the land will get more gloomy if you’re away for long, which is a great way to ensure that players come back often and to give them a sense of actually changing the world around them and making an impact (as well as making them spend more money). The Pookas are made up of parts you find along the way, and there are over 150 of them, which will make for a ton of combinations.

The game also comes with asynchronous multiplayer, where players can summon their friends to take on the Gloom together and even send gifts to each other, all features that will help make Pooka: Magic and Mischief more social and fun for the young ones. The game will release on November 20th, should be fun for casual and younger players, and it will be free to play.
