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.

Search, fight, build, Hide, attack, find, be the king of the island.

Be Islanded.

Well, first of all, sorry. Almost 8 months without significant news it's way to much. A lot of things have happened, all at the same time. But that doesn't mean I can use it as an excuse to avoid posting updates. Once again, Sorry. I'm writing this for several reasons. One of them to demonstrate that I’m not dead or something similar. And second, to address some concern over the last events related with Islanded.

Unity 5

Islanded now works using Unity 5. And this was a tough decision.

I started developing Islanded with Unity 3.8 (A long time ago). Going form 3.8 to 4 was nearly impossible, and the game was totally redone. With the appearance of Unity 5, and Islanded being in active development using Unity 4.6, another upgrade was just around the corner.

Being able to upgrade form Unity 4 to 5 in seconds wouldn't be a problem. Error.

The API upgrade was handled by Unity itself, but it delivered some errors. Nothing too serious. Until I press play. Everything was broken. Frame-rate drops, flickering shadows, some of the terrain shaders missing, no sound, and so on.

Keep using Untiy 4 wasn't an option. The developers community was already over Unity 5, and Unity 4 stop the direct support on bugs and updates.

Long story short, I literally rewrited about the 60% of the game configuration and code. It took a lot of time, but brings a more stable gameplay, new UI, and a lot easier development for the future. That is one of the reasons of the 8 month silence.


If you don't know this, Desura is in the process of going bankrupt. I never received anything from sales that occurred in Desura. For the fate of many, they were very few compared to those of Humble bundle, for example.

No one at Desura or Bad Juju Games Inc. (Actual owner) seems to be working at the moment.

As of this, Islanded will not be available to be purchased on Desura from 10 of November of 2015. News will still be posted on Desura, but updates WILL NOT.

Please, if you purchased Islanded on Desura, send an email to to write down your purchase if Desura suddenly disappeared.

If Desura reborn some way, this could change. For now, Islanded is out.


A new Islanded website will be available soon to replace the old one. Nothing new that affects the game itself, just a totally new website, that will include also the long waited “Upgrade package” to upgrade form Backer to Supporter (more info on the website).


No, this is not a changelog of the beta version. As I'm writing this down, the Beta is not yet playable. Is still missing some core mechanics from the update to Unity 5, but I feel optimistic. I can't say a date, because I don't know it myself. If you want to follow the active development, just follow @EngyneCreations on twitter.

That's all I got for now. Thanks for your support and sorry again for the huge silence season.

Im not charging money, Islanded is one of the few games in "Early Access" or "Unfinished" that is free during Beta. I think you got a totally twisted comment.
