About Istana Eggs

Istana eggs are found by digging a few feet beneath the sand on the beaches of Ark Bay. Whoever you are... it looks like you're about to have a very fun beach day!

About the Istana Creature

Istanas are sandcastles that come alive! As you begin building your sandcastle on the beach, your Istana will gradually come to life over time and begin giving you feedback and suggestions as to what and how you should build next. No two Istana sandcastles are the same for this reason. Many people build their sandcastles to be as tall as 6 feet in height.

Istanas have a funny quirk though... they don't mind be completely washed away by a giant wave and, in fact, find it to be fun and enjoyable. When this happens though, their Arkian companions are rarely pleased. All that work gone, right? So, be mindful of the waves and check the tide before beginning your day-long sandcastle project at the beach.
