Special delivery for you...
Never would we have imagined receiving this much love and support from the community. Over 10,000 of you have backed our project. As a small, Indonesian indie studio, it's been incredibly heartwarming.
You guys didn't just fund this game in 2 days! You've made sure that Coral Island will become the game that we the devs, and you, our backers, want it to be... As farm sim players ourselves, it's beyond our wildest dreams to have a game with interactable merfolk, a whole Merfolk Village to explore, and complete seasonal outfits. With your support, we're now after multiplayer and more! It's a tremendous honor to be making this game alongside you all. Thanks for making our dreams a reality.
Stairway team (and Pablo)
OK, love birds... Here is the second part of our Meet The Dateables series. This one features Eva, Pablo, Leah, and Kenny.
Eva is a bachelorette. She is a happy-go-lucky baker who works at the general store. She enjoys talking to the islanders, be it local, new, visitors, everybody! And is good friends with a lot of them. Currently, Eva doesn't have a lot of savings but when she does, has dreams to visit more exotic places. According to the islanders, Eva is always a delight to talk to— a positive ray of sunshine. A fan of red velvet cakes and cookies. Sews most of her clothes herself!
Loves: Cookies, Orchids
Pablo: He and his brother, Rafael, are both blacksmith and bachelors. Never been caught without a smile on his face, Pablo is a natural attraction for the locals—singles or not. According to his brother, despite Pablo's casanova persona, he is a romantic at heart and is ready to settle down when the right person comes along... When he isn’t smelting ores, he can be found around town, lending a hand to the townfolks, cleaning up the graveyard, or tossing anecdotes at the Tavern. Hates beaches—dislikes the sand in his shoes.
Loves: Sweet potato poutine
Leah lives her bachelorette life with her father and stepmom in an old massive house that the locals call “The Mansion.” She is a self-hired, yoga instructor at the community center and takes her online presence seriously. She spends her day wandering around the island with a camera on hand. Leah’s mother is an art dealer who travels the world constantly. So when her parents divorced, after long deliberation between the lawyers and what seems like a lifetime worth of legal fees, they decided that it would be best for Leah to stay with her dad. This was to retain some sort of stability in her life. She loves to be surrounded by nature, fine arts and a closet full of designer collections.
Hates: All fish
Kenny, a part-time rancher, and full-time bachelor. He grew up in Coral Island and has fostered close relationships with other islanders—be it people, animals, trees, spirits from the beyond—all of them. Besides making friends, he loves having lunch outdoors, vegan tacos, and cold kombucha. Kenny lives with his parents at a cabin in the forest and goes to the Ranch every day to take care of the animals. After he is done working for the day, he would head to the Local Tavern, or blacksmith shop to catch up with his friends. He usually spends his lunch breaks in the forest, or by the lake, sitting on the ground; snacking on edamame, and playing the flute.
Loves: Vegan taco
