We dive into Haemimont Games’ rather cool looking survival game Stranded: Alien Dawn which launched April 25th on consoles and PC. The game previously was in Early Access but has reached completion. We take on the crash-landing scenario with an all-female group of survivors and after around 6 hours play have managed to fend-off alien bug attacks as well as keep everyone reasonably happy. Take a look at our two videos which showcase the game’s opening moments (where we’re just finding our feet post the tutorials) and the second video highlighting our rather illustrious but basic encampment.
Stranded: Alien Dawn is a new planet survival game developed by Haemimont Games, that will challenge you in more ways than one. You’ll be managing a group of people who have recently landed on a beautiful and unpredictable alien world. You’ll choose one of three distinct scenarios, each with unique narrative setups and challenges that you’ll need to help them overcome:
- Crash Landing sees up to 4 survivors marooned on an unknown planet, scrambling for survival. Their journey will be shaped by your decisions as you help them navigate limited resources and unknown perils, and eventually search for rescue.
- The Trading Outpost scenario has you managing up to 3 farm owners who have recently touched down on a new planet to build a trading outpost and eventually purchase the planet for themselves. Armed with foreknowledge of planting and a little elbow grease, your job is to help them make this dream come true.
- In the Military Outpost scenario, a team of scientists, adventurers, and soldier’s touchdown on a new world to set up a new communications relay. They are surrounded by danger on all sides as their work attracts dangerous wildlife that will need to be defended against.
