"Marooned: Arkanus 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

Hello everyone! We are getting to the stage where we are looking to submit our game to Steam Greenlight. (Exciting I know!) This will mean that you will be able to vote for Marooned alongside other potential steam games, If we get enough votes the game will become 'greenlit' and you can expect to see Marooned on Steam! Additionally we are going to be showing some early environmental footage very soon in which Aleksi (RaZoR-FIN) and I will be discussing many features of the game and what we are planning to do in the future. Onto the main topic of Q&A we'l be answering as many questions as we can in the video, to ask a question just post your question in the comment section of this news post and we'l then prioritise what we talk about based on the most common questions.


Here is one of the many beautiful views you can expect from this vast tropical landscape.

Once again as we progress through the development of our game, positions are again opening up for new members to join our team. We are currently looking for a Lead Character Designer/Animator, who will be responsible for everything from player character models to animals and other organic models. If you're interested in the roles, send myself (Fudsine) a private message or contact me at my E-mail address michael_crssly@hotmail.co.uk and we'l get back to you.

~ Michael Crossley and Aleksi Männistö

UPDATE: The position has been filled.

Not exactly dead, we are re-evaluating on which engine we want to use for Marooned. There are a few problems with CRYENGINE, unfortunately, which can really limit our gameplay. To name a few of these problems, there is no way to effectively remove vegetation and change terrain texture in the game code, which is a problem since our concept involved building shelter from the dangers of the night. Second we might require terrain streaming and an way to have over 65535 dynamic entities in the world. All these problems could be solved with full source code access, but we don't have that.

You can always try to ask Crytek for the source code, they were "open" about that if people talked with them, or at least that's what they said on the moddb post when the Cry engine 3 Sandbox thing was announced.

Can't say much more, just try your luck, I desire you the best.
