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.
  • It's coming to Xbox One and other consoles in October.

Today, Merge Games just announced that it's teaming up with Lemonbomb Entertainment and Rokapublish to deliver Stranded Sails: Explorers of the Cursed Islands to consoles this October. The game is coming to Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4. The game is incredibly popular on PC and has over 75,000 Steam wishlists already.

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.
  • Explore a diverse array of different islands by foot or boat.
  • Fight against supernatural dangers and solve puzzles.

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.
