About

Play the demo for free on CloudNovel. It is available online and compatible in all devices with web browsers. 4 chapters are available to play while roughly half of the gameplay has been implemented. 

Online version

itch.io (windows and mac download) (version 1.3)


All of sudden, you find yourself in a soft, fluffy world filled with beings called fluffs. Without a way to go home in your current situation, you will have to start a new life in this fantastical land, Fluffland.

Interact with the fluffs and follow their lives! Would you try to find a way to go back home or will you like to live in the Fluffland permanently?

Either way, you can explore this magical world, unlock new features and find out the secrets behind this fluffy world, Fluffland and its inhabitants.

Fluffland is a fantasy life simulation game with a pinch of a story in a visual novel format.

It will be available online with a pay-to-unlock chapters system. Backers who pledged the digital download of Fluffland will have all the chapters unlocked while backers with beta access can play the beta version as it updates for free.

The downloaded version is available for windows and mac (price yet to define).

Every day, you will get 10 turns (5 in the morning, 5 in the afternoon) or 15 turns (+5 at night in Cemetery) to explore and perform actions. Along the way, you may have the possibility of encountering fluffs or events. The gameplay can be played as long as you wanted (even till Day 1000, if you wish so) however, there will be endings to the story. In this sense, it is almost similar to Stardew Valley.

Fluffland will auto-save at the end of the day. If you leave the game, you'll automatically return to the end of the last day you played.

Special thanks to DAX for helping with game presentation.




We started making Fluffland without any intention of crowdfunding it, but halfway through the journey we realized that Fluffland is a considerably ambitious project and we need some financial help to keep it going. We have set 3000€ as our goal, but to be honest this is not the actual amount we need. We cut down a lot of costs and decided to set the bare minimum amount of money we needed because it's still better than nothing. Even if the crowdfunding is successful, some of our staff will still be underpaid if we only reach the first goal.

In actuality, we need at least 3500€ to give them the pay they deserve.

In case the crowdfunding fails, we will still finish this game, but the quality will be much lower than what we have planned.

Fund Distribution
 

 NOTE: We do not ask payment for the writing and game development because we are trying to cut down the cost we’re asking on Kickstarter. That means, I, fluffness, will not be paid in this project.

Risks and challenges

The biggest worry we have is the lack of our ability to advertise this game. We are afraid our project will not reach enough people despite our efforts to make it known.

We have no problem in terms of ensuring the completion of this game, as we have already completed several free visual novels that are available to play on CloudNovel, such as Red Grimly Tale, The Red Wood, and Helen’s Doll House. We know the struggle to deliver a completed product to our audience, and have learned from our experiences. Our team will give our utmost to ensure the release of the game.

In case the crowdfunding fails, we will still finish this game, but the quality will be much lower than what we have planned.

We truly appreciate any support you give to our projects. Thank you.
