What you need to know

  • Stranded Sails: Explorers of the Cursed is an open-world survival game.
  • It's a mash-up of the exploration and farming genre.
  • You can think of it as a hybrid of Harvest Moon and The Legend of Zelda.

Unlike other experiences, Stranded Sails is an open-world exploration and farming adventure which focuses on discovery. Ship-wrecked on a mysterious archipelago, it's up to you to survive, solve the island's mysteries, and find a way to escape. The game also adds survival mechanics so it's not as easy as it looks.

The main features are listed below.

  • Experience an open-world adventure full of quests.
  • Farm and cook to survive.
  • Manage the creation and expansion of your crew.

As expected, Stranded Sails takes inspiration from the Harvest Moon, The Legend of Zelda, and My Time At Portia. Be sure to keep an eye on this one if you're interested in such experiences.
