What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

Raiders Of The Lost Island started out of this crazy idea to set 4 players one against each other, but then force them to work together, in order for only one of them to win. I mean, why help someone who just stole your treasures?! How much can one take, before raging completely?

Well, at first, we didn't know if this kind of tension between players would even work. But, it soon proved it does! People want to survive, they forget their grudges and they work together for a better chance next time. Of course, it takes some convincing skills, but the game supports it through a series of well planned mechanics.

These mechanics evolved quite a bit during the development process and we feel that now it's the time to involve the community even further, through the Early Access program. We want to know what works best for your and your friends. What elements do you really care about? What are your limits? What do you do when you are pushed too far? We want to involve you in the creative process, to take your feedback and tailor the game for the best experience.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to release the game by the end of 2019. There are still some mechanics and level ideas that we want to explore and, based on your feedback, the date may change a bit, if it helps deliver a better game.”

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

“We definitely want to add more levels, with custom elements and fun mechanics based on the core concepts of the game. We plan for more characters and skins to let players choose what they like best. The hats need a good polish pass and more variation. Also we have a few surprise treasures in mind, more achievements, more music, sound effects, localization.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

Raiders Of The Lost Island have been in development for more than 2 years and it already offers a full experience, proven on many of our parties and official exhibitions. Check our media and streams to see it in action!

All the core mechanics are ready. There is an adventure mode that takes you through a series of islands in a row. There are 12 levels with different flavors and ingredients, 21 characters, a bunch of hats, and we plan to extend these lists. There is the option to team-up with your friends or family in any format, 2 vs 2, 1 vs 3, or even one big happy team, if you're not in a mood for fighting.

Being a party game, it's highly re-playable and it adapts well to a wide range of ages and player profiles. Great fun for families too. Recommended for 3 or 4 players, but also playable in single player.

There is no online multiplayer, for now. We feel that the game works best as a couch co-op, since it's based on a lot of social interactions and impulse negotiations. Because of this, so far we didn't put our efforts into an online feature. However, depending on the success and resources, this may be an option in the future.

We don't know of any major bugs, or problems, but we're ready to offer support and to fix any serious issues as fast as possible.”

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

“Most probably yes, there will be a small increase, based on the amount of the content added during the Early Access.”

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

“We're open to any feedback and suggestions and we plan to improve the game and make it fun for as many players as possible. If you have ideas about levels, characters, about love and hate mechanics, about things you really care about and how can other players take that from you, tell us about it! We'll try to translate these ideas into the game and bring you updates as often as we can. And if you have any issues with the game, don't hesitate to let us know.

Feel free to share your experience, stream your play sessions and tell people about your awesome party.

V0.31 Update - Fantastic default quality

Hey guys, here's the first update of the early access version!

It sets the default quality to "fantastic" instead of "fastest". I missed this in the previous version, even though you could set it in the video options. So now the game should look "fantastic", with shadows, soft particles, better post processing, etc.

Also, it no longer opens the controls page on the avatars selection page. That was confusing for first-time players and now I only have a notification about assigning controllers and remapping buttons.

Thank you all, and have fun!

About This Game


Raiders Of The Lost Island is a LOCAL semi-cooperative party game for up to 4 players, where you and your weird looking friends are hunting treasures on the mysterious Lost Island.

Collect the most riches to win this race! Don't hold back and don't be shy to push one or two pretenders into the ocean! What if they can't swim? It's all for a good cause, right?
Your cause!



However, the island is cursed to sink under the rising waters and soon everyone will die if none of you greedy bastards take the time to build the escape boat before the final wave. Of course, that hard working lad, doesn't have to be you. There's plenty of losers who don't really need those shiny diamonds!

Keep an eye on who gets ahead and join the others to take down the leader and steal his booty! If by any miracle your party survives, you get to count your wealth and possibly win as the richest player. If greed gets the best of you and you all drown, well, then none of this matters... everyone will lose!

ADVENTURE CAMPAIGN


For the true raiders, who really know what they're doing, a series of lost islands awaits to be explored, one by one, in the most dangerous adventure. Collected treasures will be summed up in your hideout, where you all return after each raid, and the winner will be declared at the end of the campaign.

Long adventures give you the chance to unlock special equipment and to complete your most precious collection of idols. Now, these idols, that's something to hold on to! There are 5 different pieces and if you own them all before the final raid, they'll score big time for you!



And don't forget, if you have a hard time, feeling poor and miserable, you can join forces with another sad raider and form a team. If you don't manage to do better, at least you'll have a shoulder to cry on.

FAMILY FRIENDLY


For families or friends who prefer the cooperative side over the competitive one, it's perfectly fine to play friendly as a big team, without shedding any tears. Small kids, who just learn how to play, can team up with their parents or bigger brothers.

The controls are simple enough: only one stick and 2 buttons. Sharing the keyboard or the gamepads is also supported.

PLAYING SOLO


For the best experience and a maximum amount of fun the recommended number of players is 3 or 4. But, you can challenge yourself as a solo player and see how much treasure you can collect and get away with, until your friends arrive and the "real" game begins!

WIN ALONE OR DIE TOGETHER!


Grab your friends and venture to the Lost Island! Seek your fortune, survive together and get rich in the process! Don’t let the greed get the best of you or you will all be sleeping with the fishes on the bottom of the ocean!
