Beam Team Games announced today that its survival game – that surprisingly does not evolve zombies, hooray – Stranded Deep is now available on Steam Early Access. In Stranded Deep, players take the role of a plane crash survivor stranded somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. Experience terrifying encounters both above and below an endless environment.
Beam Team Games has listed the game’s key features which are:
- Infinite Procedurally-generated World – Explore Pacific islands, reefs, and bottomless ocean trenches filled with detailed biomes.
No two worlds are the same, even share your world seed!
- Dynamic Weather and Day-Night Cycle – Struggle to navigate stormy seas or enjoy basking with a coconut on a sunny afternoon.
- Unique Physically-based Crafting System – Harvest resources to create equipment by combining them together in the physical world – no crafting slots!
- Unique Physically-based Building System – Settle on an island and construct a shelter or venture the seas with your own built raft.
- Detailed Survival Aspects and Interaction – Manage your vitals of hunger, thirst, blood, and health against the harshness of mother nature.
- Random Loot and Collectables – Search sunken shipwrecks and islands for interesting and rare equipment.
- Hunting and fishing – Spear small animals in the shallows or risk the depths with a spear gun in search of larger meals. Starve an island of resources or maintain and manage its growth.
