Islanded it’s a survival nature sandbox game, based basically on reality and trying to achieve high quality experience, but without skimping on what is really important in a sandbox game: creativity. You have been forgotten in the sea, however, you've been lucky enough to end up in what looks like a desert island. Forget about zombies or other creatures, they doesn't exist. The communication with the nature and animals is the key to get access to any corner of the island. Face off against being truly lost. Fight against nature. All your actions will affect permanently the terrain and animals in the island. Search, fight, build, Hide, attack, find, be the king of the island. Be Islanded.
