Description

The holiday is in danger. Millions of vacationers find no suitable vacation. Be the right businessman and build a unique holiday paradise. Become rich and enlarge your paradise. But be on the lookout for your competitors and the unpredictable weather.

History

From our childhood till now we played different games. Many co-op games. But we really got inspired from one pretty old game, Holiday Island. Since we learned how to programm we used our potential to start to create a new incredible game.

We started in the middle of 2016. The first months i was on my own and tested the different engines. In the end we used createjs because of his freedom an his potential. After a while we also started with the Server and for that we used Nodejs. We also tried other engines like Unity. But with really big maps we didn’t got this performance so fast.

Since i had the engine we came together started with the textures and the AI. Next to this we implemented new features all the time.

The Reason why we started Summer Islands is because Holiday Island was an incredible game and we wanted to create a new Game inspired by Holiday Island but complete new engine, features, textures, atmosphere and so on. There is no such game like Summer Islands.

We are a small three-person team who prepared, designed and programmed the game SummerIslands while we’re studying/work.

Therefore, sometimes it is not easy to guarantee a continuous progress of the game for reasons of time.
