What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The framework of the game is 80% finished and I am just adding more machines to the arcades.I have to add a few locations around the island but it is pretty full already. I am seeking the communities input on the direction of the "Survivor side" of the game.”

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 each new feature. The Coin Game should be in the early access program for about a year as I have a few more surprises to add in the future.”

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 but I am also toying with the idea of survivor modes in which different scenarios must be played out to unlock other features in the world.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current state of The Coin Game is a playable arcade that contains 35-40 detailed machines, Carnival games and also a way to sell your old prizes to Barry the Pawn Dealer for more cash. A full newspaper delivery route system and full survival/health stats platform. Vehicles for transportation around the island. Think of it as the Long Dark/ My Summer Car/ Stranded Deep with arcade games.”

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 doubled in size and 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. The most recent addition to Islandville island, UFO Arcade features modern space inspired arcade machines, Lazer Tag and an Indoor Go Kart Race Track. 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). But dont get comfy as Survivor Mode is still being developed. ;)




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 40 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 3 years with the wonderful support of his wife, family and 2 weiner dogs.
