Toby’s Island is a 2D RPG adventure that involves collecting and levelling monsters, upgrading a town and solving puzzle. Sounds like a mix between Pokemon and Rune Factory, right? The Canadian and Australian duo are looking for $20,000 CAD to bring their game to life. With Neverland, the company behind Rune Factory, having filed for bankruptcy, I hope to see Toby’s Island become my new fix for role-playing simulation.
“Toby’s Island is a 2D RPG adventure involving monster-raising, town-building and exploration with a blend of randomized and controlled story events.
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, gather resources for building and crafting – all while facing an assortment of beneficial or dangerous (both random and planned) challenges.“
