Tourmaline studio announces successful $30K kickstarter campaign for its upcoming toys-to-life tablet co-op adventure game Oniri Islands – Children of the River
Geneva, Switzerland, April 17 – Geneva-based game developer, Tourmaline Studio, announced today the successful completion of its kickstarter campaign for toy-to-life cooperative adventure game Oniri Islands – Children of the River. The goal for the Kickstarter campaign was set at $30,000, which will go towards the tooling and manufacturing of the figurines. There are still 24 hours to go before the end of the campaign for backers to support new stretch goals.
Oniri Islands – Children of the River is striking for its colorful and attractive art style, as well as the social interaction that develops between the players through its gameplay. It’s a co-op experience where players use two figurines, which represent the game’s two heroes Mina and Tim, to drag along the screen and explore the island together in unison. Players find hidden items and solve entertaining puzzles while also earning unique powers that are physically represented by masks that can be placed on the figurines.
“We’re are thrilled to be funded on Kickstarter with still one day to go! With the pledges and thanks to our fans and community, we can now start the production of the toys. Our backers are really excited about our project and they are looking forward the upcoming release in November 2017.” says Camille, co-founder of Tourmaline Studio.
Oniri Islands – Children of the River is scheduled to release in Q4 2017 on both Apple and Android tablets for $35.00 USD. The starter pack will include two figurines alongside the application delivering a storyline inspired by Peter Pan’s Lost boys (JM Barrie) in 3 chapters full of life and vibrant imagery.
