Kokua Games


Once, a Hawaiian princess loved a commoner, and the gods condemned them. The lovers were turned into a single flower which was cut in half and separated so they could never be together again--until you come along.

Maui is an action/adventure game in the tradition of The Legend of Zelda based on native Hawaiian culture and legend. Take control of Maui, brother of the condemned princess, and go on an adventure to gain the favor of the gods and bring your sister back. Fight raiders, chase pigs, and use the innovative "stat grid" to call upon the favor of the gods and instantly change character stats like attack damage, movement speed, and hit points in real time.
