Re-imagined farm sim Coral Island coming to Switch
Posted on February 10, 2021 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop
Coral Island has achieved huge success on Kickstarter. It was funded in less than 36 hours, with the total currently at around $350,000 and quickly rising. A Switch stretch goal has also been unlocked in the process.
Coral Island is described as “a re-imagined farm sim game inspired by classics.” We have more information about the project plus a trailer below.
You’re finally leaving Pokyo behind and moving to Coral Island. Grow crops, nurture animals, and befriend the islanders. Decide whether to revitalize not only the town, but also the surrounding coral reefs. It may get tough, but stick with it, because the island is ripe for change.
Build Your Dream Farm: Transform your overrun land into a lush and lively farm. Find your playstyle by deciding what crops to grow, which animals to nurture or what structures to build.
Dive to Save Coral: Dive into the ocean to restore the coral reefs! Clean up the sea bed to make a home for rare fish, and collect ocean kelp to hone the quality of livestock and crop.
Find That Special Someone: 16 singles and ready to mingle. Sweep them off their feet and find the one. Find out what their personalities are like, take them on a date and fall in love! There are various relationship scenes to unlock and when you’re ready, build a life together at the farm– perhaps even have children. Yes, no, maybe?
Traverse Forgotten Caverns: Go deep into the caverns to mine precious gemstones — use the loot to upgrade your tools and farm. But beware, monsters protect rare finds so bring a weapon or two!
Diverse Cast of Characters: There are over 50 islanders living in Coral Island. Coming from all walks of life, get to know these people by conversing with them — extra brownie points for gifts!
Customize Your Character: Packed with a variety of outfits, accessories and physiques to choose from, you are armed with plenty of styles to express yourself. Conform to the community or be different! There is no wrong answer because there is only one you in Coral Island.
Improve The Town: Take part in community projects to build and liven up the town. With your help, outdated local merchants such as the blacksmiths will be able to process rare ores and provide better performing tools. Spare some extra gold to add a community garden for the locals or build a brand new museum and more…
You Set The Pace: Write your own story! Grow your farm, explore the island, learn new skills or chill at the tavern getting to know the locals. A click away from your new life without deadlines.
As of now, Coral Island is planned for release in 2021. The Switch version is targeted to launch roughly six months after the Early Access debut on PC.
