Bridget Emily writes, “Stories of Mara is a lovely game with beautiful art and a great premise. The world of Qalis and its inhabitants are fascinating, but the game falls short of connecting them to the player. Unfortunately, playing the prequel is not just a recommendation, but instead, a prerequisite, as the game fails to provide context to the world and the motivations of the characters.”
