Play initially involves exploring the island to meet everyone and understand what they need from the sounds and symbols they use to communicate. You then slowly unravel this spaghetti network of trades, getting the right items the people that need them. To do this often involves solving puzzles, finding hidden treasures and talking to the right frogs.
As you progress you discover not only new people and places, but things to do. You can find new items by fishing and farming. You can concoct simple brews that give you new ways to get around and access the more distant and hard to reach parts of the island.
