A bit of Stardew & Zelda

Hi everyone,
With Stranded Sails we’re aiming for both enthusiastic adventurers and farmers. Our community often raised the question how the blend of farming, exploration and adventure compares to games such as Legend of Zelda and Stardew Valley. To answer that question we came up with a simplified chart to show you what those games have in common and where they differ:

As you can see, we clearly focus on exploration and adventure. Farming and cooking are prerequisites for preparing yourself for what is waiting in the accursed islands. We hope you’re even more keen on beta testing now!

If you still have questions, please leave a comment. We are happy to answer them! :steamhappy:

News #5 + Update FAQs

Hey there! You'll find all the exciting news...

... about the development of Stranded Sails in our Weekly News. Stay up to date on what moved us during the week and on how the game is progressing. We are thrilled to connect with you and to share your thoughts.


Main story
99% of the main story is now finished! The game is basically playable. We are getting closer and closer to the beta!

Design island
The design of the environment of the first peaceful island is now finished. Little by little the archipelago gets its tropical charm.

Sound effects
Sound effects are already very advanced and strongly reminiscent of JRPGs.

Different running speeds
This topic has been discussed a lot in the community. For this reason we have built in two running speeds: Normal running and fast sprinting. In general, the slightly slower running speed defines the speed in the game, so as not to constantly pass the plants during farming. However, in order to be able to run quickly from place to place we have built in a sprint function. But watch out: Sprinting costs more energy, of course.


Your questions regarding beta testing

How do I become a beta tester?
So you wanna be a beta tester? Great! Apply for beta testing by putting your name on our mailing list.

What is the beta testing about?
We need your help by playing and testing the current beta version of the game. If you find a bug or other discrepancies, please let us know so we can polish and fix them. Please note when testing: It's not the final version and everything can still change!

Why do I have to apply as a beta tester?
We would love to send out a version for testing to each and every one of you and stay in touch. However, for organizational reasons, that's not possible, and we can only accept a limited number of testers.

I subscribed to your list. Am I automatically a beta tester or how do you pick the testers?
To make sure that everybody has a fair chance and we get a good selection of testers with different gaming profiles we'll be sending out a questionnaire about your gaming habits and preferences along with our newsletter shortly.

Why do I have to fill out a questionnaire?
It will provide us with all the basic info we need to get a good selection of testers. Don't worry, it is not a test and there is no "best answer". Also, we do not accept cash or gold cards!

How do I get to know whether I was selected?
If selected, we will notify you via email a few days prior to the start of the beta. Just in case: Also keep an eye on your spam folder. Good luck!

When can we expect the beta invite?
Unfortunately, we cannot yet give an exact date as to when we will be able to send out the invites. In this phase of development there are always issues, which can ruin any timing. We're working hard to solve such issues and can only ask you to bear with us.

What can I play in the beta?
The beta version includes the whole game that you can test for us. We hope that you give our game a thorough workout!

How can I give you feedback on the game?
With our invitation to test the beta you will also receive a short survey. Please share your Pros and Cons along with any other feedback you may have in the survey. Alternatively you can give us feedback directly via Discord. There will probably be an extra beta channel for this.

How do I get access to the beta when I have been selected?
We will send you a Steam key to add the beta version to your Steam library.

General new questions

Will there be gender options?
You may choose whether you want to play the son or the daughter of the captain. So there definitely is a gender option.

Will there be character creation or customization?
You are ship-wrecked on a remote group of islands. Unfortunately, all your clothes got lost. What you wear on your body is all you have. A small consolation, however, remains. There are different hats you can wear. You get the hats as a reward for various quests.

Does the game have a deep crafting system?
The crafting system is rather simple or rudimentary. It is mainly used to turn found items into items needed for quests or for camp expansion. In addition, we have devised other methods for obtaining upgrades, such as an improved bucket that waters multiple plants at the same time.

Can you play indefinitely or is there some rescue or leaving the island event, and then game over?
Our intention is for the player to decide for himself when to leave the island. You can either quit the game or continue to find treasure maps on the island and farm comfortably.

How can the community support the game and the development team?
We are looking forward to any kind of support. Chat with us on Discord or follow us on Twitter. Help us to make the game known in different communities!

How can we give you feedback?
The best way to reach us is via Discord We cordially invite you to chat with us and the developers and a wonderful community.

About This Game

Along with your crew you are ship-wrecked on a mysterious archipelago. As the son/daughter of the gravely injured captain you take charge and set up a camp for the survivors. Since food resources are limited you plant your own crops and establish a small farm. Your goal is to eventually build a new ship. So you search all islands for useful treasures and forage deeper and deeper into the wilderness. On your excursions many exciting quests await you – as well as numerous dangers and threats. Will you solve the secret of the cursed islands? It's the only way to escape. Awaken the adventurer deep inside!

farming & the Crew

Set up a survivors' camp and find food resources. Since resources are limited you plant your own crops. Step by step you establish your own farm to feed all survivors and keep them happy in your camp. Only then will you manage to reach your goal of building a new ship and escape from the archipelago. If your crew members are happy and well-fed, they'll give you access to crucial tool upgrades and handy shortcuts in the camp. In addition you will get more farming land, fancy hats (cosmetic) and mysterious treasure maps.


Using your father's old navy spyglass you embark on many exploration trips from one island to the other and discover – both along the road and in the thickets – many different useful tools to be used with other materials. And on the different islands new plant seeds and many other amazing treasures are just waiting to be found.

story-driven Quests

To expand your survivors' camp and make work for your crew a little easier, you can take on various quests in your island paradise. But careful – that island idyll is quite treacherous! You're not alone with your crew. Some strange threats loom on certain islands! Will you solve the secret of the cursed islands? Because that's the only way to ever leave them.
