Lost Sea is a B-movie strategy-action game set inside a procedurally generated Bermuda Triangle, scheduled for a 2015 release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
The game was announced via the PlayStation Blog earlier this week. With screenshots and a teaser trailer available for now, Eastasiasoft will be at PAX Australia with a playable version of the game.
Lost Sea puts the player on a randomly generated archipelago after a shipwreck. Your crew of survivors need to repair the ship by finding upgrades while exploring the island in order to get home.
“Lost Sea 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, leaving you stranded on a mysterious archipelago located deep inside the Bermuda Triangle,” Eastasiasoft designer Aidan Price explained.

Some of the features include:
- A procedurally generated archipelago with millions of unique island combinations.
- Sophisticated critter AI that reacts to each other, independent of the players actions.
- A varied cast of stranded to recruit, each with their own stats and abilities.
- Ship Upgrade options that offer the player discrete choices on how they want to play.
- Rare totem parts to find and combine into powerful support towers.
“The world of Lost Sea is a dangerous and unforgiving place. Every island is filled with strange landmarks, a wide 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 member of your crew unlucky enough to get taken out or left behind won’t be coming back.”
More island survival action like The Forest but with what feels like a more stylized look.
You’ll need to keep your health up while balancing the scarce resources–staying alive is of course at odds with exploring the island for ways to upgrade your ship.
Eastasiasoft has recently began a Greenlight campaign to bring the game to Steam similarly to ‘Down to One‘.
