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 "Adventure 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 6-8 months 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 adventure modes in which different scenarios must be played out to unlock other features and games in the arcade.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current state of The Coin Game is a playable arcade that contains 15-20 machines and games and also a way to sell your old prizes to Barry the 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 / Stranded Deep with arcade games.”

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

“The Coin Game will around tbe the same price when it moves to full release.”

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.”

Small patch update, ticket controllers, player emergency rescue system and new game reset system.

Update #005
Version: V0.942

DESCRIP: Mainly just fixing some bugs with this update and getting ready for the next content update.

- Changed the way all the machines count the tickets to stop the rolling of bonuses to the next game. It was fun while it lasted! haha. Il'l be testing a few more things before resetting the leaderboards.

- Added a new player rescue system that will keep track of the players last location and will teleport you if you get into trouble and need to be reset. This should help with getting stuck below the map. It basically will always be checking if there is good ground below you and if you are still inside a building.

- Fixed the lotto tickets that were showing your last winning amount on the screen even when you lost. Now it will show and encouraging comment to propel you into victory. Or something like that.

- Fixed an issue were your saved game would not show up without resetting the game. The saved game menus will now refresh when you save a game. That way it is there if you want to just save and restart were you were.

- Fixed the loud noises when resetting the game. There was a camera turning off and causing that. When there is no audio listener on an active camera it will just play all the sounds at once. Got it handled though. Move along... nothing to see here. Never happened.

- Fixed the loading of the golf cart on a uneven surface. Camera will now set it self up properly according the golf cart and not the ground angle. OOps.

- Fixed the Free Cam loading angle. It will not point toward the sky when you click C Key anymore.

- Golf cart now resets to the home house garage. It will be towed to the driveway for no charge in Birthday mode.

- Fixed the female Cheesy poof package disappearing when eating.

- Fixed the Free Cam Mode not going back into the bus if you were riding it.

Thanks for supporting The Coin Game and Ill see you in the next one.

64 bit Version, New Clothing Options and a new Free Camera Mode!

Update #004
Version: V0.941

64 bit Version, New Clothing Options and a new Free Camera Mode

I have finished a new 64 bit version of The Coin Game. This should use a bunch more of that Memory and Ram you paid good money for. If you are on a 32 bit system it should not change at all except for re-installing a the new version. The Steam installer will auto install the correct 32 bit or 64 bit version for your system. I am hoping this will help the memory problems some folks are having with crashing on some Intel integrated HD Cards.

I also whipped up a new first draft of a "Free Camera" mode (C Key) that will allow you to fly around the island with a just a simple camera. Thanks CaptainSauce for the idea. It is great for taking screenshots and getting those tough angles in videos. It is similar to how a Spectator Camera works in a multiplayer game. It will NOT move the player and only the Free Camera. You can rotate the camera with the mouse. The WASD keys for now will pan the camera Forward/ Backward Left and Right. You can change the speed of camera pan with the comma and period (,.) keys (Min 0.5 - max 10). You will see the speed of the pan in the lower left of the screen on the Free Camera Menu. It Opens and Closes when you hit the C Key. Holding the Shift key will turbo the pan speed X 10 times. You can hide the "free camera" menu for screenshots by clicking the little hide button. You can lock the camera to the X and Z Axis (it locks the Y height) by holding the Space Bar.

- KNOWN ISSUE- If you hit the TAB Key (Watch Menu) when in Free Camera Mode it will open the Watch Menu wherever you are. I am fixing that.

- KNOWN ISSUE- DO NOT hit the Free Camera C Key on the bus. It will mess up the seat and you will not be able to get off the bus. this will get silently patched along with a couple other small hiccups in a small update that I am working on still.


- I added 3 different clothing choices for each character in a simple character customizer. This will change in the future but I thought I would make it a little more interesting while you wait with a couple options. :)

- Added a nice small town cop to the traffic that is cruising. He will come in handy later.... ;)

That's about it for this little patch update. Not too much new content as this was kind of an unplanned patch update to makes things work a little smoother with the new camera and the 64 bit version.

See you in the next one and like always Please let me know what you think in the comments below.


Here is a couple of screenshots from the new Free Camera that were not possible before.

Here is another shot of the New clothing menu choices. Work in progress.

About This Game

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 developed by a one man indie developer over the last 2 years with the wonderful support of his wife, family and 2 weiner dogs.
