Toby’s Island is currently seeking $20,000 CAD on Kickstarter and has managed to raise a tenth of that total in a couple of days. It’s easy to see why early pledges have been forthcoming because the pitch suggests that this is a game that includes fishing and farming. Toby is a boy who collects monsters so that those monsters can fight other monsters. That sounds a little bit like a game by Uncle Nintendo. But there’s more. Toby also grows food and assists in the construction and expansion of a small settlement. That sounds like another one of
Uncle Nintendo’s favourite riffs those there console series that I incorrectly assumed was Nintendo owned. The two-person development team hope to build on the concepts that have inspired them, with random events, minigames and a ‘multi evolution path’.
