An astronaut wakes from cryostasis only to find himself in uncharted space on a barely habitable planet of red sand, purple oceans and relics of an ancient civilization. Completely alone and lightyears away from home, all he can do is wander and unravel the mystery of the strange planet.
Stranded drives story through discovery and immersion through pure beautifully rendered aesthetics. Although the game can sometimes seem tedious and slow while walking from screen to screen, it doesn’t hurt to take your time to absorb haunting scenery and to make sure you find as much information you can about the world and the inhabitants that used to live there. For fans of old school adventure games and heavy narrative, prepare to get Stranded with this beautifully scenic game.
