Mira and the Legend of the Djinns is a classic 2D side-scrolling Metroidvania, in which you’ll explore and fight various enemies, as well as discover new tools, items, and abilities while progressing in the game. As you unlock new abilities, you’ll get the chance to defeat enemies in style. There’s no shortage of new moves to unlock, giving you plenty of ways to take down your foes.

Not every ancient treasure belongs in a museum, as treasure hunter Yuba discovers within the debris of the kingdom of Fallen Amazgesh. There, Yuba meets a Djinn named Mira, a race long lost to the world of man, and the pair team up together to escape the ruins and discover Mira’s lost memories.

The combat system emphasizes fluidity and experimentation, and allows you to switch between weapons, and elemental modes on the fly. Thanks to its blisteringly fast pace, Mira and the Legend of the Djinns will keep you on your toes as you mow down enemies across its gorgeous stages.

What is a dead world to the living survivors? What secrets are contained in Mira’s memories? Can Yuba keep his promise to uncover these mysteries? With the help of numerous ancient weapons, Yuba and Mira will team together to take on both primeval and mutated enemies in momentous battles across a colossal map in an effort to answer these questions. In Mira and the Legend of the Djinns, all paths lead to adventure.


  • Sprawling Map: Guide Yuba and Mira across a massive Metroidvania map filled with secrets, rewards, and battles around every corner.
  • A Unique Inspiration: The development team wants to express and celebrate Moroccan culture and mythos through a game steeped in their environment.
  • Questions and Answers: Start a compelling narrative with more questions than answers, but slowly begin uncovering the mysteries of the Fallen Amazgesh and Mira’s ties to the ruined world.
  • Fight to the End: An extensive action combat system gives players full control to dazzle their enemies and leave them bewildered.

Mira and the Legend of the Djinns is coming to Steam later this year and players can wishlist the game now.
