PuffPals: Island Skies tops $1 million in funding

PuffPals: Island Skies

Los Angeles based company Fluffnest has announced PuffPals: Island Skies tops $1 million in funding.

News that PuffPals: Island Skies topped a million dollars in funding was announced over on the game’s Kickstarter campaign. As such, PuffPals: Island Skies will be developed for PC, Mac, mobile, and Nintendo Switch with a currently undetermined release date. Fluffnest hope to have an alpha available on PC for campaign backers in 2023.

This specific level of funding is significant as it met the required financial means necessary to include every gameplay aspect of PuffPals: Island Skies desired by the developers. The title possesses a style that will no doubt receive comparisons to Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and due to the level of backing, the final product will feature multiplayer.

Interestingly, Fluffnest’s origin story did not begin in gaming. The company began in October 2020 through a Kickstarter campaign that allowed them to produce cute plush animals-the very same ones that will be featured in PuffPals: Island Skies. Fluffnest has clearly been successful in this market as can be seen by the sold out status of their three most recent pre-order plushies.

Here’s a trailer for the game’s Kickstarter campaign:
