Survival game Stranded Deep has an absolutely huge update out now

Posted by , | Views: 4,056

Stranded Deep, the survival game where you're marooned on a desert island after a plane crash just had its first major stable update in some time.

Along with an impressive list of bug fixes, some big new features made it into this release. There's a new intro scene, a new main menu and loading visuals, a female character model with female voice-over, difficulty options when starting a game, stamina, player skills, sprint swimming for moving faster in water, multiple new sharks, multiple new shipwrecks and more. If you've not played for a while, there's a lot to look forward to when jumping into a new game.

I was very impressed with it when I first properly tried it, great to see work on it continuing. The performance is probably what's most surprising about it. A lot of survival games often struggle, but Stranded Deep remains a smooth experience. You can see the full details of what's new in this post.

You can find it on Steam, it's worth checking out.

This looks like a great, cheaper alternative to Ark and its performance issues. They even have an endgame scenario on their roadmap. I’m tempted to buy it even in this early state!

I haven't bought this game for this simple reason: I know in advance that I will not survive. I will die. I won't be killed by sharks. I will die because I will not go in the water where the sharks can get me.

It is a strange game and I don't think it compares at all. Building takes a lot of work and resources. To get those, you need to move around to other islands as well. Make something better to sail with because the initial life raft is a disaster. Dive to get loot from underwater wrecks. And deal with hostile wild life. Diving to deeper wrecks creates quite a bit of tension due to sharks and lack of visibility. All in all a different experience.

That sounds amazing! On the wishlist it goes...

I can tell... I simply did not understand that ther are _SEVERAL_ other building menus hidden and did all this with that life raft. It just clicked when I watched some Let's Play.

I swear.. in some cases is the UI just genius. In some other cases… well duh.

Would probably be interested if it wasn't a first person game.
