Farm, Explore, and Fight to Survive in Stranded Sails

What do you get when you combine the farming/crafting elements of Harvest Moon, with the exploration of a Zelda game? Hopefully, Stranded Sails

If you love farming and harvesting games as much as I do, then you’re always on the look out for the next one. As such, I’m definitely interested in Stranded Sails: Explorers of the Cursed Islands, which was just announced and will be arriving this October on the PS4, Switch, and Xbox One:

As you can see, the game seeks to combine a number of elements, from survival, town management, farming, and Zelda-esque exploration and combat. It’s a very nice combination and I’m crossing my fingers they can pull it off. Already, I can see myself sinking WAY too many hours into this one.

Ahoy, ye landlubbers! Indie game publisher Merge Games are excited to announce they’re teaming up with Lemonbomb Entertainment and rokapublishto deliver Stranded Sails – Explorers of the Cursed Islands to consoles this October. Arriving on Switch, PS4 and Xbox One both digitally and physically, Merge are also delighted to announce a collectible Signature Edition version which will be available exclusively on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on the release date.

Ship-wrecked on a mysterious archipelago, it’s up to you to survive, solve the island’s mysteries and find a way to escape…

From finding resources and planting crops, to establishing your own farm to feed all survivors in your camp, Stranded Sails fuses addictive survival mechanics alongside a far-reaching journey which has you undertaking a vast adventure spanning numerous islands, where an abundance of treasure lies waiting. 

Taking inspiration from the Harvest Moon series, The Legend of Zelda and recent offerings such as My Time At PortiaStranded Sails brings its own signature style of tilt-shift visuals, survival elements, exploration, and story-driven quests which complement the theme of being shipwrecked and the need to save all of your shipmates.
