Toby’s Island: Full Steam Ahead

May 12th, 2014 -

Toby’s Island is a 2D RPG adventure that involves monster-raising, town-building and exploration with a blend of randomized and controlled story events. The game will be story driven, feature a fully animated 2D turn based combat system, and multiple evolution paths for your monsters based on your play style.

The game recently met its Kickstarter goal and now needs help getting the word out – while it was funded, 773 people playing the game is hardly as many as there should be. My graduating class at high school was higher than that. Matt asked me to help him get some votes on Greenlight, and having watched the gameplay footage of it, I think a larger audience will appreciate it. A lot of RPGs in recent years have tried to bank on the tropes of old RPGs that we enjoyed so much, making light of them in the game. Toby’s Island looks to take elements from past games and create something with more than the intention of it just being a quick buck.

If this sounds like your type of game, vote for it on Steam Greenlight so more people will bear witness to the game’s existence. Check out more of the game below, with alpha footage and commentary.
