The Forbidden Islands are calling for you. Unlock their secrets, explore an unknown island after a shipwreck and not only adapt and conquer land, but also dangerous seas, to survive. As Kara, you are a warrior who was caught in a heavy storm on the high seas and separated from her tribe. At the mercy of the wild sea, you are washed ashore on the shores of the Forbidden Islands, a mysterious paradise. Discover the diverse resources of the island without a boat, for, or tools. Use your will to survive to make equipment and weapons: hunt and defend yourself against the wild and fantastic creatures of nature. Uncover secrets of the past and gain insight into the future as you explore more islands and isolated ruins. Solve the mystery behind it all and maybe you will find more than just your way back home.
Windbound takes the survival genre into a new direction, focusing on nomadic hunting and exploration, along with unique boat building and an immersive, tactile sailing experience. The game offers almost endless deployability thanks to procedurally generated islands, dynamic wildlife, and modular boat building. 5 Lives Studios was founded by five industry veterans who have worked on a variety of video games and genres.
