Check out the new 3D strategy action game from Eastasiasoft. Be sure to let us know what you think in the comments at the bottom of the page.

Lost Sea is a 3D strategy action game that takes place inside a procedurally generated archipelago. It’s up to you to form a ragtag crew of survivors and explore the surrounding islands to hunt for the resources you’ll need to upgrade your ship and make your escape.

The game is set inside a cartoon B-movie universe, where an otherwise normal individual (you!) is transformed into an intrepid hero. After a routine flight over the Atlantic Ocean ends in disaster, you are left stranded on a mysterious archipelago located deep inside the Bermuda Triangle.

Lost Sea is currently in development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC and is set for release in 2015.

Explore and Survive
The world of Lost Sea is a dangerous and unforgiving place. Every island is filled with strange landmarks, a variety of deadly and exotic creatures and powerful relics that can be used to your advantage. Often you’ll need to use your wits, as well as your machete, to escape dire situations and any members of your crew unlucky enough to get taken out or left behind won’t be coming back.

Hire a fearsome crew
The archipelago is inhabited with a large cast of stranded, each with their own traits and abilities. Once recruited crew members can carry out a number of vital tasks, whether its assisting you with combat, unlocking secret areas, gathering resources or helping you research upgrades. There is only a limited amount of room on the ship so you’ll need to make some tough choices about who to bring with you.

Upgrade and Progress
Your ship acts as a mobile base that can be upgraded to tailor the game to your play style. Do you want to focus on expanding the cargo capacity at the expense of taking crew members with you? Maybe you want to give your crew armour so they can survive longer, or torches that allow them to gather materials better at night. Resources are scarce so selecting your upgrades will be a tough decision.

Escape Paradise
Load up on supplies and navigate the turbulent seas around the archipelago. Uncover an entire archipelago of different islands and biomes as you explore the sea, filling in your map and discovering clues to the portal you hope will transport you home. Certain islands are home to other-worldly magnetic poles, hidden in the ruins of lost civilisations, that allow you to realign your compass to towards the next zone.
