About Survival Island: Stranded Map

As you can see from the title, you will be put on an island from where you have to survive. But how do you get there? In this map, you are the crew of a merchant ship which is struck by a terrifying lightning while passing by a small set of islands. Due to the storm, it rains really hard, however, the fire spreads throughout the ship that makes water pour in. Before the ship sinks, you manage to crash into a nearby island. This is also when the fire has stopped, and you can see the sun. However, it’s starting to set.

The island is surrounded by an ocean that contains many treasures, and secrets for you to explore. Before there is any merchant ship passing by to rescue you, the mission for you and your crew is to survive on the island. And the final goal is to make it back home. The question is by how? Is waiting for another ship a good idea? Or is it better to rebuild your ship? With a complete Merchant Village, including a dock with small shops and a path leading to the village, you will have a lot of fun exploring Survival Island: Stranded Map.
