About the Game

Shipwrecked on a tropical island, you must use your wits and the natural environment to survive, craft, explore - and eventually, find your way home. Under the Ocean is currently in early alpha.

Craft
Under the Ocean features a flexible, physics based crafting system. Hundreds of items interact in strange and unexpected ways. Attach a sharp rock to the end of some driftwood to make a spear. Then a glow worm for lighting, or dip the tip in poison berries - or both! Build traps to ensnare prey, windmills to generate power, a lakeside cabin, and eventually, a raft to make your way home.


Explore
Islands in Under the Ocean are randomly generated, giving you a new experience each time you travel. Elements mix and match in interesting ways. If you're on a boar infested island, you'd better have washed up armed! Islands can have different size, shape, terrain, lighting, weather, starting equipment, tools, weapons, animals, plants, backstories, hazards and more.


Contribute
Under the Ocean is still in Alpha, so by purchasing today, you’re getting in on the ground floor. This of course means bugs and rough edges; but it’s also a chance to meaningfully support the development of the game, and help shape its future. Vote on new features at http://www.underthegarden.com

This Game is Not Abandoned
However in good faith I cannot recommend this game yet. The developers have been working on a massive overhaul to the game also known as alpha 9. This update has been months in development and is still being worked on. They stream the progress of the game and release screenshots to show they are still working on it. The reason I cannot recommend this game is because the current state of the game will be different from the next update and the direction of the game has changed. I will change my review once alpha 9 is released.

This game has a load of cool features you can build you can craft eat drink cook there is so many features!
The graphics are great and you'll get your money's worth if you do buy this! But if your unsure wait until it has a sale.
This game may seem dead but no this game is just got bugs that need squashing and so many other things like working on multiplayer (what they said they could try to get into alpha 9. I enjoyed many things in this game i started with just a blunt axe but once i started getting used to the controls and crafting i finally started to really have fun with this game.

It is highly recommended to try this game its really worth the price!

Overall il give this a 8/10 because it has so many features but no tutorials (manual etc) to tell you how to get started also there isnt loads of recipes or very big islands and just barely any food! But this game is awesome and has potential! But for alpha this is really great also im happy with this game if it had a manual this would be 9-9/1/2
