The Coin Game has officially opened the doors to Larry’s Arcade!

The Coin Game is a fun ticket arcade that is run by goofy robots on an little island full of things to do. The arcades include highly detailed machines with realistic physics that were inspired by modern arcade machines. There is even a ticket redemption area to exchange your counted tickets for all kinds of fun prizes. Larry's Arcade even has an in-house animatronic band called Terry and the Ticket Eaters that would love to play you some tunes while you enjoy the arcade. Make sure to watch out for the minions, they really love Teddy and his band. Run out of money? That's ok. You can work odd jobs around the island to get back on your feet. Got extra prizes? The island has a Pawn Shop that will buy your used prizes for cash so you can go blow it back at the arcade.

You can play The Coin Game anyway that you like. For the laid back players, you can just play the fun games and win tickets to exchange for silly prizes. You don't have to worry about anything but winning tickets. Unlimited money. No curfews. No rules.... just arcade freedom brought to you by your rich Uncle Phil.

The Coin Game includes all the fun activities of a real trip to the arcade. Including drinking soda all day, dodging sugar filled minions and living off of vending machine cheesy poofs. To earn a little extra money you can scavenge the dumpsters and trash cans or even deliver newspapers around the island for extra spending loot. Explore the island on the Islandville bus system or even your very own golf cart.

There is lots of highway traffic and tourist activity on the island all year round, so make sure to keep off the roads or you may get a little surprise. There is even a few areas planned for the future that are off limits for now and surrounded by construction fencing to keep you safe. The Islandville Transit bus is always running if you need to get around the island doing chores. To hail the bus, simply click the button in any bus stop and buy a bus pass. Each bus ride costs one pass ($1.50).

With over 20 different games and machines there is already plenty to do on the island. You can play The Coin Game with any mouse, keyboard or any Dual stick/pad controller. The game includes a easy to use key mapping system to support virtually any controller or peripheral. So you can play The Coin Game any way that you like.

The Coin Game is in early access please check out the steam announcements to see what is coming to the island next!

The Carnival is in town! Largest update ever!

CARNIVAL is Here! Largest Update Ever!
Update #007 - Version: V0.953

Carnival is Here! Come get your worthless trinkets and under-stuffed rip-off plush toys! Who doesn't love warm summer nights and getting haggled at by some crusty carnival worker for overpriced junk. :) Step Right Up!

I hope the carnival brings back as many wonderful memories for you as it did for us making it. This one was about 6 years in the making. (Literally) I have been dreaming this carnival up since I was a wee lad. Ever since I started making video games I have imagined this carnival and the silly games that I could create. It feels great to get it completed and share it all with you. :)

Islandtime Amusements Traveling Carnival:
- 8 new interactive carnival booth games with robotic workers.
- 15+ new carnival inspired toys/prizes to win and barter with at Barry's or to keep on your shelf at home. You decide.
- 7 classic carnival rides to make you sick and feel like your flying at your desk.
- Lots of new silly characters to interact with that work for Islandtime Amusements.

New carnival games:

Balloon Pop

Shoot the Star

Duck Pool Pick

Water Dachshund Race

Ping Pong Water Lilly Pad Toss

Pro Roller

Basketball Shot

Carnival Ticket Booth

Just walk up and put your playercard in and blow some coin on some fun rides.

New Carnival Rides:

Ferris Wheel


Islandtime Raceway Loop

Moon Mission Tower

PirateShip Adventure

Carousel Swings

Bumper Cars

Food and Drink:

There is also a couple new places to grab some overpriced "food" (if you want to call elephant ears a food) and some good old fashioned "fresh" squeezed lemonade.

Elephant Ears

Lemonade Stand

Other bug fixes and Notes:

- Added 6 New Achievements for riding the carnival rides and playing the carnival games.
- Fixed a bunch of audio menu bugs were it would reset the menu click sound and blow your ear drums out. oops.
- Option to turn off the leaderboards in game. You can always turn them On or Off from the options menu in game.
- Fixed the wiggling bots crisis when you got close to them. No. They were not scared of you... just broken.
- Fixed Treasure in the Sand as it was displaying a wrong price on the Menu.
- Fixed the Arcade Coins falling onto the floor of arcade.
- fixed the hoverboard kids mouth on the side of their
and a bunch of other little stuff that will make gameplay a little smoother.

Now I am going to take a couple days off and I think I know of a good carnival across town the wife and I will go do some more "research". ;)

Thank you again for supporting me and my wife on this amazingly fun journey. This is the best community we have ever been involved with and we cannot thank you enough for allowing us to make this game for you.

I will post more news and info about the coming Survivor Mode, Donnies Dump, UFO Arcade and even more silliness coming later down the road.... but for now go and enjoy the summer carnival. Uncle Phils orders!
