About the game:
Inspired by relaxed gaming experiences like Stardew Valley, Moonlighter, Animal Crossing, and Legend of Zelda, Spirit of the Island doubles down on story elements in a life sim RPG. Help the local town to become a thriving tourist destination and discover your past.
Spirit Of The Island, a story-driven simulation RPG featuring crafting, management, and building mechanics, will take players to the tropical island. The former tourist paradise now lays in ruins, and the few people that still inhabit it need all the help they can get.
You will meet new friends, lend a hand with the restorations, and contribute to turning your island back into the popular attraction it once was. Listen to breathtaking tales, complete challenging missions, learn new skills and discover more about your past as you explore the unique locations that make up the archipelago.
