Toby's Island Press Release

What is Toby's Island?

In a nutshell, Toby’s Island is a 2D RPG adventure involving monster-raising, town-building and exploration with a blend of randomized and controlled story events. The game will appeal to 90's gamers who are fans of the RPG genre. It's currently in early development (being developed for PC) with a kickstarter running to raise funds for it's completion.

Game summary

You play as a young boy with a heavy burden unknowingly forced upon him - to fulfill the task set by his ancestor of ending a great evil. To do so, you will explore an island with many unique environments, meet new spirit companions, raise monsters from eggs to fight alongside you, solve puzzles, gather resources for building and crafting - all while facing an assortment of beneficial or dangerous (both random and planned) challenges.

Planned release date?

The release date will depend on funding and what that funding will allow us to include in the game but a rough estimate is May 2015. It will be available for PC for around $10 USD.
