Stolen Couch Games has soft launched Castaway Paradise onto Google Play in select regions, with a global launch happening later this year. If this game sounds familiar, it is probably because the life simulation title has been available on Amazon’s Appstore for some time now, quietly arriving back in January.
For those of you not familiar with this game, Castaway Paradise take inspiration from similar game likes Animal Crossing and Harvest Moon, but with some additional differences on top of it all. Players will be interacting with villagers who will offer up an endless stream of quests and activities to do. You will also be able to customize your character, decorate your own island and become friends with the peculiar villagers that are around you.
Players will be able to buy and build hundreds of things such as fences, hats, shoes, tables, flagpoles, wells, umbrellas and so on. Instead of the usual top-down perspective, Castaway Paradise features zooming in when talking to other villagers or when you’re performing tasks for a bit more of a personal feel. It has a pretty big sandbox game feel to it as well, since you can do whatever you like for the most part.
As for additional content between the Amazon version and this new one, not much was mentioned in any way of changes or additions. Why the soft launch? We aren’t sure either, but there is one nonetheless. If you live in one of the available locations for this soft launch, you can pick up Castaway Paradise off of Google Play now for free. As for the global launch, no specific date was announce, only that it would be happening later this year.
