From beaches to historical sites, there are a lot of places to visit here in the Philippines. But with pandemic restrictions, it’s harder to tick off some of these beautiful places on the bucket list. Don’t worry though, because this new mobile game brings the Philippines to the virtual world.

Galà is a free-to-play mobile game that takes players on a virtual road trip to different places in the Philippines. The game lets users play as students taking on a school trip around the Philippines alongside a group of non-playable character (NPCs) classmates.

Taking inspiration from the classic school field trip, players travel through different regions in the country, where they will have to work with their classmates to discover cultural and historical treasures such as the kubing, a harp from Mindanao, or the legend of Bakunawa, a sea serpent-like moon-eating dragon.

The name of the game is derived from the Tagalog word “to travel” or “to wander around”.

Galà comes from the Filipino independent game developer “kendikorp”, and is the developer’s first attempt at making a commercial app for the general public.

The game is one of the three recipients of the Cultural Center of the Philippines’s (CCP) first-ever Game Development Grant.

Galà is the first-ever Filipino-developed game that shines a light on our very own culture and history. It’s an educational experience about the Philippines, an exceptional feat on a mobile platform.

The game is still in development and is expected to have an official release in late 2022.
