Stranded Sails aims to be one of the most charming and relaxing games of the year, with an infectious mix of crafting, combat, and farming simulation elements. The survival genre is certainly having a moment right now, with games like Minecraft and Boundless paving the way for more high concept titles like Ark: Survival Evolved and Conan Exiles. Stranded Sails, the new project from Lemonbomb Entertainment, combines these intense mechanics with the more laid back approach seen in classic adventures like Harvest Moon and Stardew Valley.
Developer Lemonbomb Entertainment cut their teeth with the low key multiplayer battler, Nova Nukers, and now they're back with a more ambitious adventure that combines survival gameplay with the more relaxing world of farming simulators. Armed with a colorful art style and a suite of survival mechanics, Stranded Sails looks to combine the sensibilities of all the aforementioned games to create a unique experience that appeals to hardcore crafting connoisseurs and casual players alike. One could even think of it as akin to something like Don't Starve, but minus the roguelike elements and with the claustrophobic pressure dialed down to a much more manageable level.

At a press event held by publisher Merge Games in New York City, Screen Rant sat down with Lemonbomb co-founder and Creative Director Roman Matuszczak to play a hands-on demo of Stranded Sails, and we came away impressed with the game's inviting style and surprisingly deep mechanics. In Stranded Sails, players take on the role of the captain's son or daughter; after wrecking on a deserted island, the captain is injured and it's up to the young upstart to keep their crew alive while discovering the secrets of the cursed islands. There's plenty to discover and explore in the islands, and players will have plenty of opportunities to survive and thrive in Stranded Sails, a uniquely relaxing take on the survival genre.
Our half-hour play session with Stranded Sails showed off how the game strives to cover all the bases of the survival genre, from crafting and cooking to exploring and even fighting off scary enemies. Our adventures in the cursed isles can be seen in its entirety in the exclusive gameplay footage embedded above. The menu system is simple and intuitive, and keeping with the game's core spirit of providing depth without sacrificing accessibility. Likewise, the combat is punchy and exciting, relying on a single attack button and real-time positioning, not unlike the classic top-down Legend of Zelda games. Dodging attacks and countering with a flurry of swings is simple, but responsive and effective. It's easy to learn, but still provides a decent challenge, as can be seen in the gameplay video.
Combat is given an extra layer of depth with the stamina system. Pretty much every action costs stamina, from running and climbing to every swing of the sword. The best way to recover stamina is to eat food, which connects to Stranded Sails' cooking and farming mechanics. Many of the crew set up a small settlement on the island, resulting in a central location for players to craft items, farm crops, cook food, and otherwise prepare for excursions to the more uncharted parts of the island. Farming produces food which can be combined to create powerful dishes that replenish more stamina. It's a simple loop, but if Breath of the Wild taught us anything, it's that cooking in video games is surprisingly fun, especially when it feeds into the core adventure gameplay mechanics.
Players can also fish for food, in an entertaining fishing minigame. Relying on a rhythm-based series of timed button presses, fishing is a bit more involved, without being overly complex to the point of distraction. From crafting to fishing, farming to cooking, every mechanic is tied to an NPC, adding precious context to the adventure, and making the player feel more like they're responsible for a community, not just powering themselves up in a self-motivated power fantasy. It all builds up to make Stranded Sails a cozy and warm experience, rather than merely a series of bars to be filled as the game progresses. The visuals add to this charm, with a minimalist style evocative of 1990s 3D graphics, but without any of the technical limitations that held back the PlayStation/Sega Saturn era.
In addition to fighting and cooking, exploration plays a large role in Stranded Sails. In real life, the prospect of being trapped on a deserted island is intimidating and scary, but it's also a harbinger of grand adventure, and Stranded Sails looks to tap into that wide-eyed optimism with secrets abound and side paths aplenty to uncover and explore. The camera is fixed to an isometric perspective, which keeps the open nature of the island from getting too intimidating, and many paths are blocked off by impassable boundaries that can only be bypassed through crafting, like building a bridge to pass a massive gap. The linear storyline takes players to much of the island, but we were told there are plenty of locations that will only reveal themselves to the boldest of explorers.
Unlike many survival games these days, Stranded Sails is designed with a linear storyline in mind, which Matuszczak assures us will last players around 15-20 hours. Despite the plethora of systemic opportunities inherent in a survival game like this, some players just can't get into a game that doesn't have the context of a proper storyline, and Stranded Sails aims to keep players around for at least the duration of the story, completing quests and building up their shipwrecked community. Some players may not be interested in pursuing the post-game adventures offered by most games of this genre, but the main story should still be enough to satisfy those players. With a little luck, Lemonbomb plans to get players engaged with an entertaining and momentum-driven story, and then keep them hooked with the prospect of building up their base, growing their farm, and crafting more and more items.
Players will have the chance to explore the cursed islands for themselves when Stranded Sails launches later this fall for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch.

Stardew Planner. This excellent tool helps you to plan out your farm easily and make it possible to test different Stardew Valley layouts with ease. Renders.
What are the best crafting games on PC? It’s easy to mix these up with building games – though don’t worry, we have a list of the best building games, too – as they both involve an element of construction. The critical difference here, though, is that the best crafting games are all about making things to help you survive in a harsh world, or thrive in a charming one.
Crafting games can be set in practically any type of environment, whether that’s taming massive dinos or developing a cute farm. No Man’s Sky sends you hurtling across a vast and vibrant galaxy with an unlimited number of planets to explore. Don’t Starve, on the other hand, traps you in a hand-drawn forest with Lovecraftian beasts on the prowl. Some of these games take the sting out of survival and offer more relaxing experiences. Stardew Valley, for example, wants to teach you to look after yourself without scaring the living heck out of you.
Throughout this list we’ll go over our favourite crafting games to play right now, with something to suit everyone. So, without further adieu, here are the best crafting games on PC.
You know what kind of gaming experience you’re in for straight off the bat with Stardew Valley. As you load in, a fantasy of leaving behind a busy and soulless city job to go and work on your Grandfather’s farm greets you.
Armed with basic farming tools and almost no money, you stock up on crafting recipes as you turn a weary and overgrown plot of land into a bustling farm teaming with food and animals. You’ll be crafting for functionality to start, as you cobble paths and put up fences to keep your animals in one place. Once you’ve nailed the basics, you can craft more artisanal equipment like beehives and kegs. You won’t just be crafting for your farm, though, as eventually you’ll be able to craft various types of bombs to help you clear out and explore nearby caves.
There’s no rush to do all of this, either. Your progress on the farm can be as fast or slow as you feel comfortable with. Crafting new tools and tending to your farm never gets dull either, as Stardew Valley’s world changes with the seasons, determining what food you can grow. And outside of the farm you can also get to know the inhabitants of a local village through idle conversation and the odd festival. On top of all this, you can also invite up to three friends to help out on your farm or just generally keep you company. If you’re looking to spice up the experience in weird and wonderful ways you can also download one of the many Stardew Valley mods.
Everything is out to kill you in Rust. If you aren’t hacked to bits by a rogue raider, then chances are the radiation and weather hazards will get you instead. Even meeting other players poses a risk, as there’s every chance they’ll beat you to death with a rock the second your back is turned.
To make matters worse, you’re dropped into the world of Rust without any direction or instruction, forcing you to adapt to the harsh environment. So, best have a list of handy Rust console commands at the ready. As you die and die again, you’ll learn how to craft new weapons, gear, and hodgepodge shelters, starting with rudimentary axes and wooden shacks, and eventually working your way up to assault rifles and brick fortresses.
With so many other players out to murder you and steal everything you’ve worked hard for, your best bet is often to create a clan of like-minded players so you can create bigger and better settlements that you can patrol together. Rust is a challenge, but it’s one worth overcoming, especially with a group.
One of Minecraft’s greatest strengths is its versatility. You’re free to craft practically anything, from the equipment needed to embark on whatever adventure you desire, to rigging your base with TNT to trap invaders. Are you feeling less mischievous? Why not create a rollercoaster with heaps of redstone.
You can also shape how difficult it is to craft Minecraft’s giant backlog of items. Play it in Survival mode, and you’ll need to balance creativity with staying alive. If you want pure freedom then hop into Creative mode to build whatever your heart desires.
Once you’ve created your masterpiece, you can show it off online, where you’ll find a community of players keen to show you their Minecraft builds in return. And if you somehow run out of things to do in the base game, then you can install everything from Minecraft mods and Minecraft texture packs, to whole new Minecraft seeds and adventure maps to explore.
Rising World has a lot in common with Minecraft, but instead of an adorable world of blocky biomes and creatures, you’re met with a more realistically rendered wilderness.
Rising World cuts down on some of the harsh requirements of surviving so that you’re free to focus on the best bit: crafting any of the over 600 different items, gear, furniture, and construction materials available. It won’t take long for you to progress past a basic campsite and build your first house, and the journey from crafting your first house to creating an entire village is deeply satisfying.
Mined: Here’s some more games like Minecraft
Rising World is still in early access, so expect it to grow and change as you’re playing it. You can also play Rising World single player, or in multiplayer, which has the same sense of camaraderie as Rust, except with far fewer PvP griefers.
Re-logic’s take on the humble crafting genre transports the block-by-block resource gathering of Minecraft to a 2D world replete with caverns and forest to explore, fight though, and harvest. Once you craft your very first base, you’re free to venture out and tackle whatever objectives you please, be it spelunking for treasure or slaying terrifying monsters.
Vintage: the best classic PC games
There are plenty of weapons to craft, too. You can create ranged weapons like bows and guns, or melee weapons such as swords and even yo-yos. You can then witness your weapons destructive capability first hand as damage numbers pop out of the enemies you attack.
While you’re out on your travels, you can also add various NPCs to your base to catch a buff. The Dryad, for example, provides a bonus eight points to your defence. Doing so is essential, too, as it’ll help you progress further into the Underworld where you’ll snag more loot and even unlock new modes.
Ark: Survival Evolved is a crafting game with one crucial difference: massive dinosaurs you can tame and eventually ride into battle. There are over 176 creatures in the game right now, and they range from real dinosaurs like the t-rex to mythical creatures like a phoenix.
The main thrust of Ark may be the collection of those Dinosaurs, but crafting is how you manage everything and bring it all together. Alongside the usual items of craft – like stone tools and ramshackle buildings – you’ll also craft accessories for your dinos like saddles and pens to contain them.
Crafting a sturdy base is critical, too, as your character remains in-game even after you have logged off. It’s high stakes, as you can quickly lose all your food, farming supplies, and crafting supplies if you slip up just once. Much like Rust, though, this difficulty makes up the charm of the game. Also, Dinosaurs. DI-NO-SAURS. If you want to swap up how play this crafting game, you can also check out some of the best Ark: Survival Evolved mods.
No Man’s Sky got off to a rocky launch, but it has landed on its feet wonderfully following a number of substantial content updates from developer Hello Games. Now you can build a single base to call home no matter where you travel to in the Galaxy, explore the universe in multiplayer, and voyage underwater in eerie, monster-filled alien oceans. If you’re looking for something different, you can also try any of these stellar No Man’s Sky mods.
Despite all the change, crafting is still key to No Man’s Sky, especially when it comes to growing your home base. These abodes do more than provide a fuzzy sense of belonging, and can be used for farming, storage, healing, shield recharge, and as a home for the various NPCs you’ll meet along your travels. To craft and develop your shelter you’ll need to do a lot of intergalactic foraging. A circuit board, for example, requires poly fibre and a heat capacitor, and to forge those items you’ll need cactus flesh, star bulbs, frost crystals, and solanium. The hunt for these items drives you to constantly explore new worlds: you find a planet, explore and hunt for materials, and then move on.
Don’t Starve isn’t just a good crafting title, but it’s one of the best survival games, too. Being left in the wilderness to fend for yourself is a scary concept, and no crafting game on this list leans into that fact as hard as Don’t Starve. You’ll find yourself trapped by a demon on an island that oozes Lovecraftian horror, and where every day is spent preparing to battle the monsters that come out at night.
You’ll need to craft dozens of bizarre Victorian and steampunk-inspired contraptions to survive in Don’t Starve. The Science Machine, for example, allows you to tinker with recipe ideas but looks like a tree stump with random levers and cogs bolted onto it. While there are plenty of objects, tools, and structures to craft in Don’t Starve, developer Klei Entertainment has managed to strike a delicate balance between giving you plenty of new goals to chase while not needing a recipe cheat sheet open in another window just to figure out the basics.
It’s a good thing, too, as there’s no tutorial to Don’t Starve and the map is randomly generated, so you’ll need to learn to survive and craft on the fly.
This crafting game puts you in the role of a mechanic who has crash-landed on a planet full of disorderly robots. Fortunately, you can strip those malfunctioning bots down for parts and use them to survive on this alien world.
Crafting and creating, in general, requires a lot of engineering. So if you’re looking for a crafting game that lets you create elaborate contraptions ranging from buggies and monster trucks to full-scale factory production lines, then Scrap Mechanic may be what you’re after.
If you think about how redstone works in Minecraft, then Scrap Mechanic has a similar vibe. You wire together machinery with complex circuitry and watch your creation come to life. There are over 100 building parts at your disposal, so you can craft anything from a transforming vehicles to moving houses. The game’s in early access so at the time of writing you can only play the creative mode, but a survival mode is on the horizon.
For all of Animal Crossing’s great qualities, it has one gaping flaw: it’s not on PC. Luckily, it has influenced countless developers of indie games to create wholesome experiences that focus on simple gameplay loops. One such developer is Bitten Toast Games, which has taken that ethos and combined it with the crafting mechanics to make Garden Paws. Oh, and cats, it’s got those, too.
Much like Animal Crossing, you’ll come to a new village and set about fixing it up with shops, houses, and all manner of shiny new facilities. To do this, you’ll need to venture out and find crafting materials, which come from chopping down trees, chipping away at rocks, and other gentle harvesting tasks. Once you’re loaded up with supplies, you can create a crafting bench and throw together anything from torches to trampolines. The more your quaint town expands, the more friendly critters it’ll attract. There isn’t much here in terms of rough survival mechanics, so think of this one as a more downbeat and chilled out crafting game.
Forager can play out in several ways. You can lean into its Zelda inspirations and go dungeon crawling, chopping down 8-bit terrors as you go. If that doesn’t take your fancy, you can settle down in the spot where you spawn and start building a Stardew Valley-like settlement. To do any of this, however, you’ll need to get to grips with the game’s crafting systems.

The scope of what you can make is staggering for a game that appears so simple on the surface. Want something to look after your windmill while you go foraging? Craft a droid, and it’ll even tidy up any tat that’s lying around while you’re away. Want to forge a sword with demonic power? Best stock up on electronics and demon horns, then. We reckon you’ll want to keep a cheat sheet handy for this one.
And there you have it, the best crafting games on PC. Some of these will no doubt appeal to more hardcore players – Rust and Ark are particularly punishing. If you’re more into the tranquil aspect of crafting, though, and don’t want the fuss of your life being in peril, then Minecraft and Stardew Valley are peaceful alternatives where you can opt to create in peace.
It feels like ages since we first got a glimpse of Stardew Valley on the Nintendo Switch, but the wait is finally over and we can run our farm wherever we choose to go. Crops will be harvested on trains, pigs will be purchased while waiting in line at the post office and, yes, there will probably be more than a few weddings that take place on the toilet.
The world of Stardew Valley is a magical one, where you can do almost anything your heart desires. Want to build up a multi-million-dollar crop empire in just a few years? You can do that. Want to become a master fisherman bringing home only the rarest of aquatic creatures? You can do that. Want to just have a nice life with a stable income and start a family? You can do that too.
While you’re free to do pretty much whatever you want in Stardew Valley, the game doesn’t always make it obvious about how to do things, or explain how certain things work. There are also a lot of hidden secrets and general quality-of-life improvements that you can totally miss if you don’t know what they are. Fortunately for everyone jumping on the bus to the Valley on Switch this week, we’ve already poured hundreds of hours into the game to cultivate these essential tips for you.
Time to confess: when we first played Stardew Valley we totally didn’t realise that upgraded tools can interact with more squares. Upgraded that watering can a few times? Well, make sure to keep the button pressed when using it to water multiple squares at once. It may seem obvious, but we totally didn’t notice that it was possible until a lot further into our farming careers.
Pretty early on in Stardew Valley on Switch you’re encouraged to build a chicken coop, which seems like a great idea as chickens can provide reliable daily income with little work. But if you do that straight away you might notice a problem; you have to feed them and hay costs quite a bit of cash. There’s a simple solution to this: you should build a silo before the coop. A silo will turn any grass that you cut with a scythe into hay for free, meaning you can feed those chickens without having to break the bank. This also means that you should leave as much grass as possible on your farm at the start, so you can turn it into hay once the silo's complete.
If you head down to the beach you’ll notice there’s a broken bit of wood that seems to lead over the river. You can fix this for 300 wood, which seems like a lot in the early game. However, fixing this bridge is totally worth it unless you really want to get some animals on your farm as soon as possible. Once fixed, this will open up the tidal pools, an area that gives free items such as coral and sea urchins, which are worth a lot. It’s basically a licence to print money for life, all for a mere 300 wood.
If you want to make a lot of money from farming, then berries are the way to go. In Summer and Autumn you’re going to want to try and max out on blueberries and cranberries respectively, as these have the highest profit margins and require little work. After being planted at the start of the season, all you have to do is keep them watered and then harvest, as they’ll hang around and produce crop until the end of the season. As for Spring, cauliflowers are by far the most profitable.
Got a good berry economy going but feel like you need some extra cash? Turn those berries into wine or jams and your profits will grow even more. Grab a keg or two and throw some of those berries in there on harvest day, and soon you’ll have some fancy wine that will sell for considerably more than the standard crop. To really make this work you’re going to need a lot of kegs, but you can always stick some in a barn to save space.
Considering you escape the corporate and technological world to start your farming adventure within the first moments of Stardew Valley, it may seem strange to recommend watching the TV every morning, but it can certainly help. The weather show will tell you when to expect a rainy day, which gives the perfect opportunity to upgrade your watering can. The fortune teller should be consulted before taking a trip to the mines to see what your RNG will be like and watching Queen of the Sauce will teach you new recipes to cook.
If you ever notice a few worms poking their heads out of the soil, pull out that hoe and smack them on the head. Instead of putting an end to what seems to be a fairly serious worm epidemic in Stardew Valley you will, usually, be rewarded with some kind of useful item. Anything from books to seeds can drop by hitting the worms, so it’s worth it.
If you don’t fancy spending all your time trying to work your way up the economic ladder then maybe you’ll be on the lookout for a companion to spend your time with. A number of the villagers in the valley can become attracted to you and eventually marry you if your game is strong enough. One way to get people to really like you is to give them gifts, and you can give them pretty much anything you can think of. But be warned, some people will hate certain gifts, so if you get a bad reaction from one gift, remember to never give it to them again, or you’ll be facing many more lonely nights on the farm.
