Stretch goal: Merfolk Kingdom UNLOCKED!
4 months ago – Tue, Feb 23, 2021 at 02:57:16 AM

$1M reached! We are beyond grateful for the amazing support that you all have given us this month. To every single one of you, backers, and those who help us spread the word, we are forever in your debt. Thank you...

The village is now a kingdom and features a festival. We expand the merfolk romance and questlines. You'll meet 20 merfolk, befriend 10, and may find love with 2 of them. But things with mythical creatures are not so simple, you must decipher their language and gain the gatekeepers' trust before getting access to the Kingdom. Good luck and have fun!

What's next?

Island hopping is next at $1250K. This update will be delivered after 1.0 release. Let's see if we can get there!

On this batch, we have Macy, Surya, Nina and Theo!

Let's start with Macy...

Macy is an eligible marriage character. She grew up on a neighboring island and now lives full time at the Inn. She makes a living by selling images to a visual media company, Pletty inc.  Before Coral Island, she went to university for finance in Plotera, tried her luck working a corporate job for 3 years while selling photography as a side gig. At one point, she decided to pursue photography professionally and left her corporate job. Before embarking on a life as an artist, she moved back home for a year, catching up with her family while preparing for her island-hopping career. Though she didn't say how long she would stay in Coral Island, she mentioned that she would eventually move on to another island, unless she has a good reason not to. An only child. She loves simple nights, taking pictures, playing video games and Stephen, her rescued lobster.

Loves: Pizza

Hates: Pickles

Surya, an eligible marriage candidate, is a fresh marine biologist graduate who is currently doing a fellowship in Coral Island. Like you, he is also new to the island! Shortly after he submitted his dissertation, he realized that a fancy degree didn't guarantee a job. So when he was given the opportunity to join Ling’s research project, he was ecstatic. He packed his bags and moved in with his uncle and aunt, Joko and Dinda in the Hillside. He works at the Lab on the weekdays and spends his free time hanging out with Luke in the vineyard and relaxing at the beach.

Loves: Lodeh

Hates: Milk

Nina. This bachelorette technically doesn't live in Coral Island anymore, but still visits her vacation home at the beach, from time to time. Aside from wild rumors around town, she's never talked about her abrupt departure, so it remains a mystery until now.  Nina is well educated and enjoys lavish vacations. A close friend with Suki.

Loves: Banana fritter, Flower bouquet

Hates: Banana, Tomato soup

Theo is an eligible marriage character. On the weekends, he makes a quick buck performing live at the tavern. He doesn't have what people call a “decent voice,” but he does have “soul” when he performs. Apparently, according to him, that's what's important. He lives in 2 Main Street with his dad, who was once a fisherman, and his sister, Lily. Theo doesn't drink. He loves outdoor cookouts, festivals, camping and hates traveling. Day job: a fisherman.

Loves: Yellow Moray Eel, Fish tacos

Hates: Beer, Wine

What's your favorite cookie of the batch?

Thanks for reading,

4 months ago – Thu, Feb 18, 2021 at 03:36:55 AM

WOW!!! We unlocked Millie, Suki, Ben and Charles stretch goals! Thank you so much for the support and enthusiasm. We're so excited to deep dive into these four singles and newly available *wink*

Farmers, meet Millie, Suki, Ben and Charles!

Let's start with Millie!

Millie owns the house in Garden Lane and rents one of the rooms out to Yuri. She works at the Library and likes to spend her free time bird watching. Not only does she take good care of the books at the Library, her responsibility includes helping the Mayor with arranging festivals, donations, etc. She loves old books restorations. Wears glasses.

Loves: Veggie ramen

Hates: Fish

Suki is recently divorced and, according to her nightstand, currently “finding love from within,” and learning “how to expand love.” Focusing on herself, she drowns herself in work, exercise, and building a healthy co-parenting relationship with her ex. Though she is no longer a Sanchez, she still keeps a close relationship with the whole family.

Loves: Green smoothies

Hates: Pizza, Pineapple upside down-cake

Ben is a nomad who lives in a caravan stationed in the forest. If you knock on his window on the weekend, he might have some random things to sellbe it items he finds scavenging around the island or things that he doesn’t want anymore. Ben spends his money attending the Fall music festivals and green tea. On some days that he isn't in the forest, he is presumed to be driving off to another side of islands and camps out.  Ben has an extensive collection of healing crystals, loves road trips and daydreaming.

Loves: All mushrooms

Hates: Clam chowder

Charles, a town doctor, uses his free time catching up with the islanders at the tavern and going around spitting out medical advice. Bad luck seems to have its way with Charles. In his youth, he was disowned by his parents, worked his way through medical school, and when he finally thought he caught a break by *almost* marrying the love of his life. Sorrow came running through the doorhe caught them cheating, called the wedding off, and has been heartbroken since... He now lives with an overgrown frat-boy, Scott for a housemate.  Has pollen allergy, dislikes flowers.

Loves: Burrito

Hates: Flowers

So, what’s next?

Next to unlock: we are adding 4 new characters to Coral Island! The amount of dateable on this batch is not yet finalized.
