What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access will give us more time and possibilities for improvement and gathering players’ feedback without keeping the game away from the community. Survival: Fountain of Youth already has quite a lot of content, but there are still many things we want to add.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are estimating around 12 months. We'll keep polishing the content and listening to players' feedback until the game is ready to be fully released.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will include three additional regions with new biomes, animals, resources, puzzles and points of interest. We also intend to expand the crafting system with more blueprints and machines. And, of course, the player will be able to finish the story of finding the Fountain of Youth.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current state of the game includes two large regions to explore, all basic gameplay features, dynamic weather, hunting, sailing, numerous predators, resources and lots more. There are dozens of different blueprints (weapons, tools, machines, food, etc.) in the game to be discovered and crafted by the player. House building is also available, with various ways of furnishing and decorating. The player can focus on following the story or explore the world around them at their own pace.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes. We’re thinking about increasing the price at full release as more content and features will be available.

Of course, those who purchased during Early Access will not be charged extra at full release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Since we shared the demo version of the game, we've been constantly involved with our community. All the feedback we've gathered shaped the game into its current state, and we are planning to keep it this way.

Everybody is welcome to follow our progress, suggest new ideas and just chat with us and other players, for which we mainly use Discord, Twitter and Discussions on Steam.”

About This Game

You are a member of Juan Ponce de Leon's expedition in search of the Fountain of Youth, based on an actual historic event of the Age of Discovery. After a shipwreck, you must learn to survive on deserted lands: from crafting tools, building shelter to hunting prey and fighting off predators.

Explore the many islands in search for your crewmates, figure out the fate of an extinct ancient civilization and uncover the location of the legendary Fountain of Youth.

Dangerous animals, weather, plants, diseases, injuries, hunger, thirst, exhaustion — everything will test your strength and ability to survive.

With over 30 animal species and their own habitats and behaviors, there are plenty of creatures to cook and hunt but be careful to not become the prey...

With the scorching Caribbean heat, the relentless storms, the malaria infested swamps and poisonous plants, the Bimini archipelago is full of hazards to overcome. Crafting, building shelter, improving your skills and exploring the islands in search of resources are key to your survival. Are you ready to take on the challenge?

To travel between islands, you can build a variety of sea vessels — from primitive rafts to the 16th century Spanish schooner. Find your way to open new routes to unknown lands, prepare for the expeditions, and find out what mysteries lay ahead.

There are hundreds of items that can be crafted and used for survival, from the simplest tools made of sticks and rocks to advanced muskets, metal armor and tools. You can also build a variety of workshops, from primitive leather dryers to pre-industrial era machines.

Each action you perform improves your skills — strength, cooking, skinning, shooting, and more. Survive and develop new abilities to evolve from a clumsy rookie to a hardcore survivor.

Each island is special — with its own landscape, climate, weather, flora, fauna and resources.
From the desertic caatinga, to the crocodile-filled mangrove thicket and the bustling underwater biome surrounding shipwrecks and reefs; this open world is no Caribbean paradise…
Explore new lands, adapt to their conditions, solve the mysteries they keep and seek for unique treasures.

While finding clues and traces of your shipmates, you will stumble upon remnants of an ancient civilization that perished for an unknown reason.
Search ruins and temples, decipher centuries-old puzzles and unveil the mystery behind the legendary Fountain of Youth.

One question remains: Will you survive long enough to gain eternal youth?
