Stranded: Alien Dawn is a planet survival simulation where you will discover an expansive, unforgiving 3D landscape and forge each survivor’s story.

Marooned on a deadly alien world, the fate of a small group of survivors hinges on the player’s every decision.

Stranded: Alien Dawn challenges players to overcome adversity and ensure their diverse group of survivors can flourish in their strange new surroundings.

Combining modular base construction with deep resource management, research, crafting, and more, players begin Stranded: Alien Dawn with nothing but the essentials, discovering beautiful yet deadly new environments in order to evolve their own unique, thriving base. Grapple withmysterious illnesses, extreme weather, and alien wildlife attacks, with the needs of survivors at the heart of every choice.

Whether players opt to transform their crash site into a sprawling haven or a fortified compound, salvaging and harvesting nearby resources is essential to finding the ideal materials to build and protect their survivors’ new base. Researching new technologies and acquiring knowledge are also vital, equipping survivors to make breakthroughs and advancements that will expand their horizons.

While shelter and security are crucial for success, caring for each member of the group is critical for long-term survival. Take advantage of their individual strengths, weaknesses, and traits to help survivors unite, adapt and overcome unprecedented circumstances. Craft weapons, hunt, forage and grow food, develop medicines, and keep the group entertained, to ensure their physical and mental wellbeing on a far-flung planet.

In Stranded: Alien Dawn players must make difficult choices to shape the story of their survivors, balancing short and long-term outcomes with risk and reward. Creativity, resourcefulness, and innovation are key to ensuring survivors will live to see another sunrise in this unforgiving alien world.

Stranded: Alien Dawn will be launching through Steam Early Access on October 12, 2022, and will remain so for at least 6 months.

“The full version of Stranded: Alien Dawn is planned to incorporate additional content and features influenced by community and player feedback during the early access period. Throughout early access we’ll be providing updates to add new content and enhancements, further fine-tuning the game’s systems, game mechanics and features. We plan for the full version of Stranded: Alien Dawn to be an enhanced version of the game with even more depth.”
