About Stranded: Alien Dawn

About this game

Brave a new world in Stranded: Alien Dawn, a planet survival sim placing the fate of a small marooned group in your hands. Forge your story through compelling and immersive strategic gameplay as you make vital decisions to protect your survivors from starvation, disease, extreme weather and more. From basic camps to fortified bases, create a stronghold to defend the survivors from attacks by alien creatures that roam an expansive and deadly alien world. Experience an epic and unpredictable journey.

  • Discover an expansive, living 3D world with remarkable flora and fauna
  • Manage your survivors’ needs, health and happiness
  • Construct and evolve your own unique base, and devise cunning defences to protect it and survivors from being attacked
  • Plant, grow, harvest and hunt down food. Stockpile useful resources and salvage material from fallen space debris
  • Research technologies to expand your horizons.
  • Provide heat, light, devices for relaxation and more to keep survivors on top of their game, ready to face the next challenge.
  • React to fluctuating weather and environmental events
  • Learn to play with the integrated tutorial system

AN UNFORGIVING WORLD

Stranded: Alien Dawn pushes you and your survivors to the brink. Limited resources, unpredictable weather, illness and hostile alien creatures make it hard to establish a foothold on an unforgiving world. The next challenge is never far away, requiring construction of an increasingly robust base using advanced resources and improved defences.

STRANDED SURVIVORS

Ensure your group’s physical and mental wellbeing by providing weapons, medicine, and much-needed entertainment. Every survivor has a unique backstory, varying levels of ability in key skills, and both positive and negative traits. Only by improving their skills and maximising their potential will you survive.

AN UNPREDICTABLE JOURNEY

In Stranded: Alien Dawn, every playthrough is unique. Experience a journey driven by random story events, alien wildlife threats and adverse weather. There will be setbacks; devise your own innovative solutions to problems and manage multiple crises at the same time. However, actions have consequences and as you strive to plan ahead, you must make difficult choices to shape the story of your survivors, balancing short and long-term outcomes with risk and reward.

MODULAR BASE-BUILDING

Design and build your base on an alien world and transform it from simple shelter to high-tech outpost. Protect it with perimeter defences, decorate it with furnishings, introduce automated devices such as defensive turrets, and discover new technology to create your own functioning space pad.

Enjoyable and challenging game Silmalar to Rim World with the top-down colony manager but with the challenge of defending and fighting to control new areas and expand your outpost, good game for a relaxing game to kill time without having to invest a lot of time.

It was described as 3D Rimworld, doesn't quite live up to that but it's still very good.
