Coral Island

It seems like it was just yesterday when Coral Island‘s Kickstarter campaign went live… because it literally was yesterday. The campaign has been live for less than 48 hours and it’s already funded.

Developer Stairway Games was asking for $70,000 initially, and at the time of this writing, the campaign has already surpassed $78,000. With 28 days to go, there’s still time to blow some of those stretch goals out of the water.

So what are those stretch goals? Here’s a list straight from the Kickstarter page:

  • $125,000 – Minigames – We’ll add a bunch of minigames throughout the island so you’ll have more to do.
  • $175,000 – Bug Catching – Bug catching will be added as a game mechanic. The good kind of bug!
  • $200,000 – Expanded Museum – The museum will now include an aquarium and indoor park to display your bugs!
  • $250,000 – NPC Seasonal Outfits – All NPCs will have different outfits for spring, summer, fall, and winter. Applies to both portraits and in-game models.
  • $300,000 – Console & Switch Port – Alpha Farmer backers and above will be able to choose between Steam, consoles, or Switch Keys!
  • $350,000 – Merfolk Underwater Village – Expanding the underwater map. Explore and stumble upon Merfolk Village. Rediscover fairy tales!
  • $400,000 – Kids Grow Up – All kids, NPC’s and player’s, will age until the teenage years. Includes additional stories and relationship developments.
  • $500,000 – Mod Support – Mod compatibility! Help us figure out the type of mods Coral Island should support.
  • $600,000 – Multiplayer – Play with friends! We’ll hire two additional full-time devs to implement co-op and up to 4-player online farms in Coral Island.
Coral Island - Seasonal Outfits

Some of the stretch goal features sound a lot like Animal Crossing, and we definitely think that’s a good thing. We need more Animal Crossing-like games in our lives. We’re also pretty excited about the possibility of seaosnal outfits and a secret Merfolk Village.

Coral Island is a very exciting project, and we’re thrilled to see it doing so well. We’re also pretty excited about potential console releases, and based on how fast the funds are coming in, those could easily be in the cards.

If you want to get your hands on some of the sweet, sweet backer rewards, head over to the Coral Island Kickstarter page and drop some bucks while you still have the chance!
