PuffPals: Island Skies

PuffPals: Island Skies joined Kickstarter not too long ago, and after achieving astronomical success, the game will be appearing on Switch.

PuffPals: Island Skies was only seeking $75,000 as its funding goal. Thanks to the fans, however, the total is around $700,000 and counting. A number of stretch goals have been unlocked, including one for Switch. A fishing mini-game, cooking, arcade, and more will be added as well. There’s even a chance for online multiplayer, though that’ll require the campaign to reach $1 million.

At this point you’re likely wondering what PuffPals: Island Skies actually is. To put it simply, the game is a life simulator with collecting elements, farming, customization, and exploration. The official blurb can be found below.

PuffPals: Island Skies is a game about eliciting the nostalgic memories of growing up as a kid; exploring the world and discovering everything for the very first time! From traversing new biomes, meeting new friends, and customizing your very own home, there is no shortage of things to do on these magical floating islands! The cozy, warm, yet adventurous and curious nature of being a kid is something we want our players to embrace when embarking on their journey in PuffPals: Island Skies!

And here’s a trailer for the game:

If you’re interested in getting involved with the Kickstarter campaign, you can do so here. Various tiers are available. Those that pledge at least $20 will be able to choose between a Switch and PC key.

As for a release date, don’t expect to see the title in the near future. An alpha version is planned for 2023, “with early access the year after that”. The team won’t nail down launch timing for the final release “as we see the development as an ongoing process.” In any case, we’ll be sure to let you know when we hear more about the Switch release specifically.
