What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early access is a great opportunity for me, as a solo developer, to receive feedback and involve the community while shaping the future of this game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The full release is planned for 2024. However, it's hard to say exactly when the game will be finished, as I intend to determine the game's future together with the community. I also want to ensure there is a sufficient amount of content.”

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

“The game is still in heavy development and will change and receive content updates over time, with the help and ideas of the community.

Currently plans include:
- More to discover (e.g. wrecks, unique items, islands, underwater sites)
- Further technologys
- Gardening system
- Wildlife updates
- More ship variants
- Story Elements”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game currently offers a singleplayer open world map with different islands to explore while searching for food and water, building a base and ships, crafting and use of workstations through physical interaction, not over UI's.”

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

“The price may increase when there is a full release, but I always want to keep the price fair.”

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

“The community will receive updates on the current development status via Steam, Discord, or other forums. I will also involve the player's feedback, opinions, ideas and criticism in future development.”

About This Game

The plan was simple - the ship would wake you from your cryocapsule before you arrived at a potential new home. A planet for humanity to start a new life on. But when you awaken, you are already on the ground amongst the wreckage of your ship with no one else in sight. Stranded and surrounded only by debris, you start your journey under an unfamiliar sky.

The planet has a breathable atmosphere, which is a good start. Strangely enough, it is also already filled with plants and animals. The old seedlings from Earth must have survived the crash somehow. What happened to the ship? How long have you been frozen in cryo since your arrival? You don't have the answers, but...for now, you have more pressing concerns. You must find a way to survive and make this foreign planet your new home.


Face hunger, thirst, weather, and hostile fauna while the days pass by. Treat your wounds and keep your eyes open, some old machines still roam the landscape. The scorching sun above is unforgiving.


Discover various islands, underwater locations, old wrecks, and more. Find out what happened to your crew, where you are and what went so horribly wrong with your ship.

Craft and build

Harvest the resources of your new surroundings, refine materials and craft new tools. Find your way to the top of the food chain and build yourself a new home!

Sail the sea

Adjust the sails and follow the wind! Just like our ancestors sailed over the sea to discover new land.

Gather electricity

Scavenge the wreck and its remains, adapt the pieces to your situation as you build something new.

Interact with the world

Interact with several different types of workstations in a unique and immersive way to refine resources and take your next step forward. Instead of navigating endless menus, you physically interact in-game with your items.

For example:
• Make cloth on a loom
• Split wood into planks
• Process raw hides into usable leather
• Smelt ore into iron, and forge it into tools
• Potter and fire clay into usable objects

...and more!
