Toby's Island is a 2D RPG adventure involving monster-raising, town-building and exploration with a blend of randomized and controlled story events.

You play as a young boy with a heavy burden unknowingly forced upon him - to fulfill the task set by his ancestor of ending a great evil. To do so you will explore an island with many unique environments, meet new spirit companions, raise monsters from eggs to fight alongside you, gather resources for building and crafting - all while facing an assortment of beneficial or dangerous (both random and planned) challenges.

The game will appeal to 90's gamers who are fans of the RPG genre. It's currently in early development with a kickstarter running to raise funds ($20,000) for it's completion, as well as a slew of stretch goals.
