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

Early Access Review
don't listen to the negative reviews, they dont understand that just because the dev hasn't updated its progress ON STEAM in 6 months or so, they have a roadmap in-game that is updated every so often, this game is packed with a lot of interesting features, its basically what you always wanted out of a survival game, if you jump of a decently high cliff, you could sprain an ankle or even break a leg, if you stand next to a fire too long you get burned and you can get sick from eating raw food, if you wanna catch a fish, you have to throw spears in the ocean to catch em, the devs put so much effort into making this game, it's unbelievable, i would've payed a lot more than 10 bucks for this game, although it is very fun, it has its quirks, that is why it is in EARLY access and if you cant see that, you shouldn't buy any early access game because you'll just complain about how many glitches the game has. 8/10

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.
