Stranded Deep is a first person survival game released by Beam Team Games in January 2015. It’s more than an open world game, since the world is created as you play. The map is basically infinite and you have tons of awesome places to explore. The only goal you have in this game is to stay alive for as long as you can. So, what’s so awesome about it?
Well, it’s not like all of the other games where you face supernatural horrors that will never happen in the real world. This game prepares you for real terrors. It all begins when the main character is traveling by plane. The action develops quickly, as the plane crashes in the first few minutes of the game. You are the only survivor left all alone somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. What you do from now on is all up to you.
You need to gather resources in order to survive, just like you would in real life. You need water, food and shelter. Plus, you might get hurt, so you need to improvise and keep yourself healthy. What shocked me was that this game is super realistic. For example, you can’t just drink water from the ocean, because it’s salty and it will dehydrate you. It’s up to you to find a way to make it drinkable.
You can cut trees and build yourself a small shelter where you might feel a bit safe. You also need to make weapons that will allow you to hunt and defend yourself. Still, you can’t just settle on an island and live there happily. At some point you will consume all of the resources that the island has to offer and you will be forced to leave. You can only carry a few things with you, so be careful what you pick! Plus, you will encounter many dangerous creatures in the depth of the ocean, so beware!
I love this game because you can literally play it forever. Still, it’s a bit annoying to start from scratch when you die, so make sure you always save the game! I was fascinated by all of the amazing mysteries that were planted in certain areas. Plus, the graphics are awesome, so it’s a pleasure to just explore this world. Still, if I could change one thing about the game, I would change the character development, since it’s pretty much absent. I would love to discover more about the character as I play. Still, the game is great, regardless of this aspect. I really think you should give it a try!
