In an hostile environment nature and animals can be your enemy or your only ally. Get abilities to control animals in the world to fly, run or swim. Explore unknown terrain without risk. Travel acrros the Islands to find the best place to stablish your settlement. Build in different locations and transport resources with basic engineering. Because nature is not always the answer.

History

Islanded was born on 2012 with the name of Awkwood Island. The idea behind Islanded become after the release of DayZ as a mod for Arma II. The project began as a way to have a purely survival game without requiring weapons or a zombie apocalypse to occur for you to be forced to survive. The idea was clear, although by that time the game was impossible. Not only because the difficulty of editors and the little help to Indie sector also by the fact that the development computer and skills did not exist. The project was paused for 2 years until early 2014 finally took off. It was published in IndieDB as "Islanded" with a very simple prototype and nothing like the current game. In just a few months and several versions, Islanded reached Alpha version and was released for free on Desura 27 July 2014. Today, Islanded has over 40,000 views and 5000 downloads at Desura (Data September 2014). The game is still in active development with only one developer behind everything.
