“Two of the best survival games combine as 'Raft meets Rust' in underwater base-builder Sunkenland.”

“If players want to feel like they are trying to survive in an ocean-covered world, fighting for resources and fending off mutants, Sunkenland will likely be up their street”
Game Rant

“The idea of constructing a base and defending it from NPCs adds a new layer to the genre”
Gaming Bible

About This Game

Sunkenland is an exciting post-apocalyptic survival and exploration game set in the near future when water covered most of the Earth. Explore sunken cities, scavenge resources and valuable technologies, build your base, trade, fight and survive.


Explore the sunken skyscrapers, nuclear powerplants and subway tunnel. Gather resources, seek out lost technologies, and collect rare pre-apocalypse items. Build diving devices to assist your underwater journey. And be wary of the unknown danger awaiting you in the depths of this planet.

Base Building
Build your base anywhere you want. Will it be a water stronghold, an abandoned ship base or an island penthouse? You need it to keep yourself refreshed, craft items, farm, store items, and stay protected. With the modular building system, you can create your ideal enclave and stylize it with decorations found throughout your journey.

Base Defense
Defend your base against clans of pirates and mutants. Build high walls, barbed wire, traps, surveillance system, and artillery to keep the enemies out of your territory!

Build everything you need, tools, weapons, a jetski, and even a helicopter. You will need different workstations and blueprints in order to craft complex items.

Gather food, hunt sharks, grow plants, and manage supplies. Make your base sustainable as resources are scarce in Sunkenland.

Build and upgrade many types of vehicles including sailboat, jetski and gyrocopters. They will make your exploration much more convenient.

Fight mutants and pirates. Raid enemy atolls and steal their resources. Use melee weapons, firearms and explosives. Fight on ocean and land. Operate mounted heavy weapons to destroy enemy boats.

Trade with friendly atolls for supplies, weapons, armor and rare items. There is no universal currency, only item for item.

Cooperate with friends and survive this oceanic apocalypse as a group. Build bases, dive, explore and fight pirates together!
