What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The game is 90% finished and I am currently adding more features to the game like Multiplayer and a more in depth Survivor Mode.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“As a one man indie developer it takes a lot of time for me to finish, bug test and try each new feature. The Coin Game should be in the early access program for a couple years. I have no major plans of stopping development. The larger the game becomes... the longer it takes to add features. To me the game will be "done" when it is fully released. Thats my plan.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will have the same fun machines and prizes as the EA version. The "EA" title allows me as a one man dev to always be changing and tweaking the game.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current state of The Coin Game is 4 stocked and playable arcades that contain 50+ detailed machines , Carnival games, an indoor shopping mall, a waterpark and also a way to sell your old prizes to Barry the Pawn Dealer for more cash. A full newspaper delivery route, baby sitting job, lawn mowing system and full survival/health stats platform. Vehicles for transportation around the island.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The Coin Game will be slightly increasing in price as more content and locations/features are added through Early Access. Since being launch in Feb 2019 the game has tripled in size and playable machines.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“As an Indie developer the Early Access program gives me the ability to interact with a great community. I plan on getting input on users favorite games and things that they would like to see added to the arcade.”

About This Game

The Coin Game is a fun collection of ticket arcades that are all run by goofy robots on an little island full of things to do. The arcades include highly detailed machines with realistic physics that are inspired by modern arcade machines. There are ticket redemption areas to exchange your counted tickets for all kinds of fun prizes. Larry's Arcade has an in-house animatronic band called Teddy and the Ticket Eaters that would love to play you some tunes while you enjoy the arcade. Other additions to Islandville include, UFO Arcade that features modern space inspired arcade machines, Lazer Tag and an Indoor Go Kart Race Track. There is also a 90's inspired indoor mall with an arcade, food court, shops and a Cinema to watch movies from your hard drive. Make sure to watch out for the minions, they really love Teddy and his band and they also are pretty good at Lazer Tag. 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.

The Coin Game also features a full fledged Traveling Carnival with over 20 classic games, rides and machines to choose from. The carnival also brings new prizes to win, hoard or sell for cash at Barrys pawn shop. The rides are all interactive and are overpriced just like in real life... so you better be winning, working or begging Uncle Phil for more spending cash if you want to enjoy them. (Birthday mode is unlimited money for all you lazies out there that just want to live off of Uncle Phils wallet and have a good time. So dont worry he has you covered).

Survivor mode is a little more interesting. You dont have Uncle Phil to spoil you with cash and free rides all over the island. You start with a few bucks in your pocket and have to earn your way in the world by working small jobs around the island. You must also mind your health and energy levels (on your wrist watch) by eating and drinking items bought or found around the island. Jerry sells the most nutritious items in town but they can be expensive. Junk food is always cheap though.

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. 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 50 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 developed by a one man indie developer over the last 6 years... It will prob take many more to finish it.
