Coral Island is a dynamic and inclusive take on your typical farming simulation game set on a tropical island. Players can not only experience growing crops that couldn’t in your normal farming simulation, but they can also participate in fun and unique island activities like sea diving.
Of course, building and exploring your personal paradise can be a bit lonely without another person to play with. So, you might be wondering: does Coral Island have co-op play?
Can you play Coral Island multiplayer?
The short answer is yes. In fact, Coral Island has two multiplayer modes: local split-screen and online multiplayer. People can play with up to three other people.

This feat was largely due to the game being partially funded through a Kickstarter, allowing the developers to expand the content without negatively affecting the single-player experience. In fact, additional developers were hired just to focus on multiplayer content.
However, since it is an add-on, multiplayer will not be available in the Alpha version. Instead, it will release when the game fully launches on October 11, 2022. Stairway Games has also not confirmed if online multiplayer will be available on multiple platforms, but it may be added in the future.
Can you marry other Coral Island players?
In addition to being able to work on the town together, multiplayer also allows players to romance other Coral Island players. You can only marry one character at this time, but Stairway Games has expressed interest in polyamorous marriages later in development.
Players can, of course, choose to marry other NPCs instead. There are approximately 15 eligible candidates to meet on the island. You can start a family with up to two children.
