Islanded it’s a survival nature sandbox game, based basically on reality and trying to achieve high quality experience, but without skimping on what is really important in a sandbox game: creativity. You have been forgotten in the sea, however, you've been lucky enough to end up in what looks like a desert island. Forget about zombies or other creatures, they doesn't exist. The communication with the nature and animals is the key to get access to any corner of the island. Face off against being truly lost. Fight against nature. All your actions will affect permanently the terrain and animals in the island.

Stones now spawn in the terrain and have already been placed throughout the first island. Keep in mind that the stones is the only resource that respawn. For example, trees are permanent and can't be replanted. Alpha Update Alpha Update Alpha Update Alpha Update

In-game HUD & Inventory

In this update the in-game HUD is smaller and more easy to understand. Now if the inventory is open and you have a tool/weapon in the hands this will not receive the order to attack as in previous versions. No more attacking the poor workshop. You can also unequip your actual tool to become barehanded. Also, if you want to take a screenshot or make a video, now you can hide the in-game HUD pressing F3. Alpha Update

Create system & New resources / recipes

The create items are now stored in categories to be easier to find in the future. In this update there are two categories: Resources and Tools. New resources, Wood log and Bark, both obtainable form the trees. Also, new recipe to create sticks: x1 Wood log = 5 sticks. Alpha Update Alpha Update

Graphic options

As many of you ask for, now exist a Motion Blur option to disable it completely. Additionally, to avoid some problems with "invisible trees", now Level of Detail is called Draw distance and has a minimum of 10%.

If some of you have problems of small windows or by mistake selected a wrong resolution, you can change the graphical options outside the game thanks to PlayerPrefs. More info. (Advanced users). Alpha Update Alpha Update

Islanded Website

Islanded website will be updated to enable a way to pre-order and support Islanded as "Early Access". Will be more info about that in the future.

is this game "playable" as in some basic game features exist, or is it just like a prototype engine test kind of thing?

Islanded uses Unity, so is not a tech demo. Alpha is for the base game, Beta will include some big features and full release, is full game with updates.
