  • Notes: Guardian is an interactive storytelling game where you play as Maia, an outsider sworn to protect her people. Your longevity in the game is measured through your health and your mana (real mana, not appropriated video game “mana”) - and the gods watch and judge your actions closely. Contains use of Te Reo Māori, real Māori stories, references to flora and fauna, and creates learning opportunities throughout the game. Efforts are being made to translate the entire game into Te Reo. Highly recommended.

  • Overall Rating: Māori-made, free-to-play - check it out!
