Windbound brings the joy of island-hoping to PC, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. The game comes from 5 Lives Studios and is being published by Deep Silver. After a successful reveal, the internet is already discussing the possibilities of what lies beyond the farthest island.

The game is a survival game where payers will craft tools, weapons, and ships in an effort to sail to the next Forbidden Island. Travel from place to place living an isolated but free existence in a strange and ancient world. Scattered ruins across the ocean reveal the secret past of the world, along with a look at the future of your survival.

Hear the call of the Forbidden Islands and travel to reveal all of their secrets. Navigate the land and conquer the sea as you fight to stay alive. This title, from the trailer and description, have a very familiar Polynesian theme. Fans of the Disney movie Moana can clearly see the similarity between this title and the journey that Moana has to make.

In Windbound, you play as Kara, a warrior who is caught at sea in a fierce storm. Set adrift from your tribe, you find yourself at the mercy of the ocean before being tossed on the shore of the Forbidden Islands.

No food, tools, or boat means you start with nothing but your own skill and force of will. Using the island’s rich resources, Kara must craft tools and weapons to defend threats on the island as she encounters fantastical creatures in a vibrant world.

One of the main attractions of the island is your ability to craft your own custom sailing vessel. Design your boat with your own adventure in mind as it will quickly become a key companion in your journey. Without your boat, you can not make it far, and death will become a quick inevitability.

The game is planning to launch on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. The gorgeously crafted world mixed with island hopping nature presents a unique and beautiful challenge for fans to enjoy. Whether your adventure is set on survival or you seek to discover the truth behind your history, this is a new adventure on an unforgiving ocean.
