Farm games are popular. The best proof of this is the success of Harvest Moon or Stardew Valley and the popularity of the Kickstarter project Coral Island.
The creators of the indie game raised $ 1.6 million from 36,000 people in 30 days. The amount was 23 times higher than the 70 thousand requested by the developers required to complete the product.
During the fundraising event, Coral Island contributors posted additional goals, and they all met. The developers have pledged to introduce 16 elements into the game, including NPCs, an additional biome, costumes, console ports, and multiplayer.
Stairway Games studio thanked the players for their support and said that the fundraising had surpassed all dreams.
Coral Island is expected to release in October 2021 on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Switch. The alpha version for sponsors will be released in June.
