Latest Updates from Our Project:

Stretch goal: console and Switch port UNLOCKED!
4 months ago – Wed, Feb 10, 2021 at 10:45:01 PM

We’ve unlocked the Console and Switch port! 

Thank you so much to everyone who supports us! Special thanks to all backers, all tiers. Your support is greatly appreciated. 


Mini Q&A

Q: When?

A: It depends on the platform holders, as they all have different policies. But our plan is to have Coral Island ported around 6 months after the early access release.


Q: Can I get a console/ Switch key instead of a Steam key?

A: Yes, absolutely! You will be able to choose between a console/Switch or Steam key.


So, what’s next?

Our next goal is the Merfolk Underwater Village. It will be an expansion to the current diving map which will allow the Player to explore further into this ancient civilization. It is no village without its villagers, so on this tier, we will also add more merfolk! You will have the chance to get to know and build a relationship with them.

Stretch goal: NPC seasonal outfits UNLOCKED!
4 months ago – Wed, Feb 10, 2021 at 10:16:33 PM

NPC Seasonal Outfit achievement unlocked! Thank you for the amazing support. We’re absolutely thrilled about implementing this.

In this update, you will see all islanders change outfits every season, totaling more than 170 outfit designs. We assign a color theme for every islander, play around with the design and color combination around it. This approach allows each NPC to be identifiable in-game throughout the year. At the same time, we are also making sure that each outfit design is still true to their character. This change in the outfit will bring the NPC and the overall game more alive! We can’t wait to share them with you.

So, what’s next?

Next at 300k is the big one, farmers! Console and Switch port! I think it’s safe to say that we all are very very excited to unlock this particular stretch goal. LET'S GOOOOO!!!

Meet the dateables (1/4)
4 months ago – Wed, Feb 10, 2021 at 06:41:30 PM

There are 16 romanceable characters in Coral Island. Today, we're kicking off a series to introduce and share more about them. Let us know in the comments who your favorite of this batch is!


Meet Noah

An obvious fan of consistency, Noah was born, raised, and settled in Coral Island with a brief departure to Pokyo for university years; Now back in Coral Island, he spends his days running the Tavern in bland colored khakis. Though he would rather spend his days taking care of his mom, Betty, he does have other hobbies. On rare occasions that he is free, he enjoys long walks, discussing theories of unexplainable phenomenons with Alice, and watching a gourmet gelato-making show, Games of Cones. Big family, 3 siblings.

Loves: Durian, sunny side-up, gnocchi

Hates: Metal bars


Meet Yuri

When she is not busy keeping the islanders healthy, she can be spotted hanging out or playing chess at the beach shack; She also likes tattoos, pastel hair, and playing pool. Yuri is not your usual MD she spent her 20s as a doctor who crossed many borders, frequently dispatched to remote areas to practice for little to no pay. Presumably why she has no decent savings and decided to settle in Starlet Town, a boat ride away from her hometown, Tosaka. She is close with her roommate Millie and fellow MD, Charles.

Loves: Fish sandwich, green curry, lobster

Hates: Flowers


Meet Scott

He is a city boy at heart. Always up for fun and is never a bore. He found his passion for artifacts and has dedicated his life to it. After many heartbreaks and not wanting to be known as the town’s infamous playboy, Scott moved to Coral Island to start a new life. He is currently renting a room from Charles at 1 Main Ave in Starlet Town. Aside from getting into relationships, Scott enjoys strong coffee, rainy days, and vintage jazz. He frequents the Local Tavern on the weekend.

Loves: Node, egg custard

Hates: Tulip


Meet Lily

Despite having a well-paid remote job, Lily still lives at home with her dad and brother, Theo (a bachelor). Usually, she spends her days working at home and would visit the lake or library on the weekend. Once a week, usually on a Monday, Lily would stay at the Abandoned Villa, as a favor to her good friend, Nina. She watches the Villa while Nina’s away and uses that time to recuperate. Lily loves miniature bonsais.

Loves: Kimchi, onigiri, omurice, bonsais

Hates: Diamond

Rewards design now here!
4 months ago – Wed, Feb 10, 2021 at 12:49:48 PM

Finally! We’ve uploaded the designs for various rewards.


Deluxe Farmer Pack and above

Mythical pet: for every purchase of a Deluxe Farmer Pack, you will receive 2 mythical pets. One of them is the dragon below (color has not been finalized yet). Also available as an add-on.


Pioneers Pack and above

Pioneers Pack: for every purchase of this pack, you will receive 1 crown, 2 outfits and 3 wings. Includes everything from the previous tier. Also available as an add-on.


Founders Pack and above

Customize your founder's statue, including its name and description text. Similar to a character creation menu, select the body type, hair, clothing, and even your pose! Includes everything from the previous tier. 


Pet Designer Pack

Design one of the adoptable in-game pets. We will make the in-game portrait of the pet and the in-game model as well. Includes everything from the previous tier.


Character Designer Pack

Become a tourist NPC or help us design one! Tourists will be featured in two in-game festivals, and on select days, will be seen visiting the island. Work alongside our team to create the in-game portrait, in-game model, and dialogue. Includes everything from the Deluxe, Pioneer, and Founder tier.


Mini Q&A

Q: Can I buy these premium outfits later after the game releases?

A: No. These designs are backer-exclusive. There will be wings and hats that all players can attain in-game as end-game items, but they will be different designs.


Q: How many pets can I have at my farm?

A: You'll be able to have 2 pets on your farm at a time, 1 standard and 1 mythical.

You will be able to cycle between the available mythical pets, but not the standard. Standard pets (Dog, Cat, Rabbit, Lizard, Fox and Monkey) are locked from the moment you adopt them.


Q: Can I get a dragon in-game if I don’t want to purchase them now?

A: No, the dragon is backer-exclusive. Coral Island features mythical pets. For non Kickstarter backers, they are end game content. Think miniature comodo dragons or rhinos . Backers will have the Kickstarter exclusive mythical pet option from the beginning of the game.


Tell us what you think the other backer-exclusive mythical pet should be!

Thank you for reading, supporting and of course, backing this project.
