In this game, players take on the roles of survivors washed up on a desert island where resources are scarce. The only way to escape the island is to build a raft before a hurricane hits the island and wipes the survivors out. Players will need to fish for food, venture into a dangerous jungle to get raft materials, and swim out to reclaim some of their sunken ship's cargo. However, as the hurricane gets closer, players may need to vote other players off the island in order to survive.
