January 2022 Dev Update

Welcome to the January 2022 Coral Island development update!

Please check out our Steam page to wishlist the game and find out more:

This month, we'll go over fences, outdoor decor, and meet the C.I.C!

Alpha v0.07 will launch on March 7 @ 11:59PM PDT.

Happy New Year (again!)

Happy lunar new year to those who celebrate!

Fences, Gates & Arches

Take a look at how fences, gates, and arches will work in the game!


Placing fences is super easy. Select the fence item on your hotbar, find an empty spot on your farmland and plot it down.

There are three different styles for how fences connect. We have the following from left to right: post on every tile fence, homogenous fence, and corner post fence.


Now that you've fenced an area, we need a way to get in and out. To place gates, find an empty spot between two fences, and place it. Voila, you now have a gate!

Good news, all styles of gates will work with any fence style.


Complete your decoration with arches! You'll be able to rotate them in 4 directions and place them anywhere on the tillable ground.

We're still developing the feature, but you'll be able to place half arches and make double-wide ones too. For a sneak peek of this, be sure to join our Discord here.

Community vote: add fence vaulting, or not

Last but not least, we're looking for feedback from the community. Do you want us to explore fence vaulting for the game? Please let us know your thoughts!

Outdoor Decor

We've been hard at work adding a variety of styles for your outdoor decoration needs.

Here's a sneak peek at the Mountain Cabin Outdoor Props. Let us know what other styles you want to see in the game!

Meet the C.I.C (Coral Island Current)

The Coral Island current is an underwater highway transporting various things to and from different parts of the ocean. It's located on the West side of the island.

[where's all the fish...?]

Fanart Contest: Valentines in Coral Island

Win a chance for your character's hair design to be featured in the game!

What's next?

For Alpha v0.07, we've got the following planned: - Renovated museum - Heritage implemented (temple offerings) - More interiors and exteriors

- Refreshed 10m diving maps - Rebalanced mastery progressions

- And more!

Thanks for reading,

Stairway Team
