One of the indie games I’m particularly excited about this year is Stranded Sails – Explorers of the Cursed Islands. Any game that describes itself as “a mix between Stardew Valley, Harvest Moon, and a wee bit o’ Zelda” is going to have my attention. As the game nears release (it’s due sometime in October) we expect to see the publicity machine come to life for Stranded Sails. Well, to celebrate the Tokyo Game Show (which starts tomorrow), the game’s publisher, Merge Games, has just released a new trailer for the game. You can check it out below along with the official description for the game –
Stranded Sails – Explorers of the Cursed Islands is an open world, exploration and farming adventure full of quests and discovery! You’re ship-wrecked on a mysterious archipelago. It’s up to you to survive and solve the mysteries deep in the heart of the islands, then finally escape!
