Here’s a trailer and some details:

1sland is our take on multiplayer free games, with carefully crafted aesthetics, no violence, no microtransactions, and no ads. A beautiful wholesome game, but free. We call its genre Paddle Royale, a relaxed way of competing, where you have to find a single island (worldwide) in order to rank up and become the best sailor.

The game is structured in seasons, matching real weather ones through the year, and the aim of the game is becoming the best sailor on a global leaderboard. In order to do so, you have to find the 1sland, which changes position every few hours (6h), and is placed in the same spot for everybody around the globe.

The first one to find the island each round, earns the ability to customize it, so the rest of sailors that arrive there can admire it. Between rounds, you can engage on mini-games and activities that also help you rank up.

1sland (Switch – eShop) does not have a release date yet.
