The creatives behind this game made sure to offer something for every type of gamer. The team hopes to appeal to fans of hardcore dungeon-crawlers, home-builders and decorators, explorers and completionists, farming fanatics, collectable hoarders, and more.

Flow Studio is ready to keep releasing new content for Len’s Island, including full multiplayer co-op by 2023. More updates include new quests and NPC’s, more dungeons and a final boss of the island. The team will also be expanding on the lore and story while adding more content meant for farming, building, and combat. 

I started on Len’s Island as a solo project 4 years ago with the ambition of developing my vision of the perfect game!” shared Julian Ball, owner of Flow Studio. “Following the Kickstarter campaign, we’ve been able to build an international team who have helped me bring this vision to life. The guys have injected so much love and energy into Len’s Island, I believe that together we’ve crafted a beautiful, immersive, captivating and meaningful experience which we just can’t wait for people to discover.”

Do watch the announcement trailer below. Len’s Island is giving me Diablo. It’s giving me Minecraft and Stardew Valley. It’s giving me The Sims. I love it!

The Key Features include:

  • Building the home of your dreams – With a unique modular building system, players can build wherever they want, make it as big as they want, and choose from a range of materials to satisfy their creativity.
  • Looking for some action? – Len’s Island can also be played as a fast-paced, skill-driven dungeon crawler. There are deep, dark caves below the island with plenty more to explore to keep players engaged.
  • Tending to your crops – Players can grow food and even exotic plants and flowers to sell back to the villagers for gold. You can grow large-scale farms throughout the forest, or focus on taking care of small garden beds on your balcony.
  • Exploring the world and rebuilding your surroundings – There are many rewarding adventures for players to experience. Some of them include finding a long lost sword, rebuilding an old broken bridge or finding hidden rooms in the dungeons.
