In April, PuffPals: Island Skies launched a Kickstarter and raised over $2.5m to create a cute life sim game where you make animal friends, build a farm, and decorate your house. With its colorful aesthetic and stubby little characters, it looks like Animal Crossing, except it won’t be tied to a Nintendo platform when its eventually out.
PuffPals: Island Skies is set on a floating chunks of earth that have tons of room for you to build your farm on. There’s a bunch of animal friends up there, like a raccoon and a chicken that sells bread. In the trailer at Wholesome Direct, we see what look like little quests that you can do for prospective animal pals to build a relationship with them.
There are also a ton of ways to customize your sky island. The trailer shows off the ability to move and place furniture in your home as well as organize your farm (and grow the cutest carrot you’ve ever seen). It’s not quite clear if you get to choose a specific island to call home or if you get to travel to others over the course of the game.
The character customization looks much more robust than Animal Crossing, too. There are a variety of hairstyle options and clothing to choose from—maybe there will be hats and other accessories to unlock later.
PuffPals: Island Skies doesn’t have an exact release date, but its Kickstarter rewards suggest that it’ll be out sometime in 2023.
