What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have a great game and you have great ideas - Early access is a platform that allows us to put those things together so you can help Stranded Deep grow to it's full potential.


...As those ideas come together and evolve, there may be some hiccups, but we'll always be doing our best to make sure that Stranded Deep is a playable, enjoyable game. Early Access is getting a bad reputation lately and we'd like to help turn that around. This is a game made by gamers - Beam Team - not a faceless corporation. We care about the game and the people who play it.

See our roadmap below for more details on the great things to come!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We don't want to work on Stranded Deep forever. If all goes well, we're hoping to have it completed by the end of 2015.

2016 UPDATE: The initial release of Stranded Deep was expected to be finished well before the end of 2015 - add a few more features and wrap it up. However, due to it's success the project expanded way beyond that initial scope and we decided to add more content and features than we had planned due to player feature requests :)”

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

“We're using Early Access to add more content and balance game mechanics through community input. We would like to think of the full release as the conclusion to this process.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“This is Early Access and this is an early build.

All core mechanics for crafting, building and interacting are in place and functional. Players will be able to manage their character's vital system and accumulate resources. Every current object and item in the game has a purpose and functionality that we will no doubt have to balance as development continues.

The world is infinitely procedurally-generated and full of different biomes. Areas will not be incomplete or locked off; Instead, the biomes and world generation will evolve as development progresses.

There is no "end-game" yet, so players will not be able to "beat" the game or be rescued.

Optimization is an ongoing process. We've made many optimizations along the way and have incorporated comprehensive graphics options, but there's always more to do. We are confident in a stable performant build but this is never a guarantee.

We are very passionate developers and have put our heart and soul into Stranded Deep. We prefer not to give estimates of percentages or timelines for our development but we can be confident in saying that we're not releasing bug-ridden shovel-ware.”

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

“The price will remain the same during Early Access. After Early Access has finished, the final price will reflect the additional content added during development - but it won't be a big change.”

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

“We will be releasing a public board that lists our progress, concepts and issues so players can see what's being addressed at the time and also that their feedback is being received and used positively.

We always read our feedback and take everyone's opinion seriously. Receiving player feedback is important so we can use it to improve and evolve. We will see it.”

In the aftermath of a mysterious plane crash, you are stranded in the vast expanse of the Pacific Ocean. Alone, without any means to call for help, you must do what you can to survive.

BUILD. CRAFT. SURVIVE. ESCAPE.
Explore underwater and on land as you hunt for supplies to craft the tools, weapons, and shelter you’ll need to stay alive. Stay sharp: hunger, thirst, and exposure conspire against you as you brave treacherous elements and the dangerous creatures of the Pacific.
Live long enough, Stay Alive!



Health, Hunger, Thirst, and sunstroke. Manage and monitor these vitals through an interactive survival watch. Cure poisons, heal broken bones, and bandage bleeding to stay alive.

Harvesting, Craftsmanship, Cooking, Physical, and Hunting can all be levelled up for maximum efficiency or to unlock different crafting combinations.


With dozens of tiers and building pieces to choose from; craft your very own home away from home. From a weak and flimsy palm frond shack to a solid clay brick house.


Customise your own raft with sails, canopies, storage, anchors, boat motors, and more. If sailings not for you - fly in style by constructing a gyrocopter!


Explore the procedurally generated world with no two islands the same. Dive for sunken shipwrecks, abandoned shelters from previous survivors, or search for rare sea creatures like whales.


Build and manage your farm with water management and plant growth cycles.


Hunt, Fish, Trap, and Skin animals for food or kill to insert your dominance over the pacific islands.


If you’re looking for a challenge then take on one of the three bosses to obtain a wall trophy and a very important reward.
