UPDATE 10: "The First Chapter"

It is finally here, “The First Chapter” is now out! We have been teasing you for a while now and we can’t wait for you to finally explore the new locations and features for yourselves! We are not the only ones that are eager for your arrival however. The lurkers and the bears are impatiently waiting for you! If you want to know what else is coming with this update, keep reading below to find out!


We have two new destinations for you to discover. Beside these, we have also reworked the radio tower and the existing small islands.


Are there others out there? What happened? How did you end up on a raft? We have been working on the story and are releasing the first part of it with this update. You will unravel the history of the new locations while finding out how you ended up on that Raft.


With two new destinations comes two new enemies. Bears and lurkers are the inhabitants for these places.



A brand new system for finding islands. With the correct frequency, you will be able to both find and go back to any destinations!


You have asked, we are delivering!

Be the true captain of your raft, control the direction of your journey effectively with the steering wheel.


But no, steering wheel is not enough. We want you to be able to be in full control of your raft. Have you accidentally sailed the wrong way? No problem! Now with the engine, you can change the direction of your raft and go back.


However, there is a twist. For the engine to work, you will need biofuel. You can make this in biorefiner by using honey and raw food.


A new weapon! Might come handy when you are out exploring.
