Stormland is a survivalist management game where you lead a group of survivors, stranded on an island. The survivors have to build a new colony from the grounds up using real life skills.
The core feature of Stormland is authenticity! It is built on real life experience with knowledge of carpentry, architecture and ecology. For instance, there are different kinds of trees (fir, chestnut, oak) with different properties that will affect buildings. While other games aim for epicness, Stormland wants to be closer to reality. “Make a great deal with little means”.
Humans of the game will also have to observe nature behaviour and patiently learn skills. People didn’t came up with architecture in one day! Stormland is designed as the journey of a new, ambitious colony.
The team publishes a bi-weekly blog post on their website to show the accuracy of the game.
Stormland is currently in open beta on itch.io and aims to release in Summer 2018. The game will be updated with new buildings, features and natural disasters. The two-man team developers also intend to bring an add a light campaign mode and an endless survival mode.
