"Marooned: Arcanus Island" is a new, and upcoming, first person survival game that is currently in development.

The game pits you alone in singleplayer, or with friends in a cooperative mode, on a tropical island located in the north atlantic ocean. You wake up washed up on a beach with nothing but your brain and your wits to keep you alive. You must gather food,water and build yourself a shelter in order to survive harsh tropical storms, tornados , hurricane's and an unknown threat that is lurking in the dark.
To create this game, we're utilising the Sandbox Editor that runs with the CryEngine 3.

                                                                  

Features:
-4km² Island
-Dynamic Weather
-Day/Night Cycle
-Innovative Inventory and Crafting system
-Beatiful graphics rendered with the CryEngine3

It's been a long year since we last spoke and things progressed a lot slower than anticipated, after all theres only two of us, but it was to make sure we would be delivering a game that not only makes us proud but you guys proud aswell! :) In light of the release of the CRYENGINE EaaS we have decided now would be the suitable time for us to release our game onto greenlight! We cannot put into words how excited we are about this and we hope you are too fellow survivors. We have put some new pictures onto the greenlight page, we'l put them up here soon.
 

We will have a video for you very soon we are in the process of converting our game code over to the new build, so that we can legally show it to you.
A comparison picture between 2011 and the time of this news post.

We will have a video for you very soon we are in the process of converting our game code over to the new build, so that we can legally show it to you. Thank you for all the support you have given us so far, we look forward to your feedback.

I can see everyone wants to see more than environmental shots, the next piece of media we release will contain some form of gameplay element. Stay tuned!

I'm hyped for this project, a survival/exploration game in the CryEngine has been desired by many since FC1, so I'm following your project. But gameplay footage is what we are all waiting for! If it's good I would consider contributing for 'alpha access' if you offered it!

I'll wait until I see some actual custom coded work before I track this.

Can you explain to me in some detail how you are going to implement a crafting system? or what sort of crafting level will the player be bound by, for example crafting a makeshift knife would require a preset number of items in order to make, instead of the alternate approach with having several preset (blueprints) to make one singular type item?

Why does it have "a future like this"?

I don't see anything anywhere... ;)

But seriously, this is good mapping, but maybe a liiiittle too much of gobbledygook about features that do not have any reliable connection to some images of a quite beautiful map.

Best wishes to the dev team, I really hope, that they can realize this project the way the stated here. The cryengine is full of the force.

What about letting them do something first? You can't possibly tell if it's overrated or not with just a few screenshots...
