OpenIsland is a revolutionary sandbox realistic survival game. We aim to
create a hardcore-level, realistic survival experience while aiming not to bore
the player. Every single day will be different, with new opportunities, the
island evolves as you live in it... Weather changes, random events will occur
and of course, you have to survive each day while still developing new means of
survival. You will generate a unique character with unique characteristics and
make sure it develops it's skills in order to survive and have a better, more
enjoyable survival experience. We try to make this as close and realistic to
real life survival, each time you play you will gain more knowledge. Your
character has to learn new techniques and methods, of course in the process you
will have several accidents: prepare yourself to make sure these accidents have
the most minimal consequence possible.

The testing team of OpenIsland today managed to get their hands on the first build of the game which has been on development for some weeks. This build included the following features:

-The Tester's Island: The tester's Island is a regular landmass surrounded by water where the testers have several tools to test the game. Testers are able to fiddle around in a small Island where almost all the game features are presented.
-Water & Swimming: The game presented water surrounding the island aswell as the possiblity to swim endlessly. Of course, in the future, you won't be able to swim for too long!
-Basic Movement: The game presented basic player movement in first person.
-Skybox: We also included a basic skybox!
