Stranded Sails looks like a gorgeously stylised game that will be a fresh and exciting addition to the Stardew Valley, Harvest Moon-likes that has grown so popular over the last few years.
My Time At Portia is a similar game that released for PS4 earlier this year. We liked the game back in April, stating in our review My Time At Portia is “A gorgeous, atmospheric, and relaxing world chock full of things to do.” The aforementioned Stardew Valley is the most prominent title of this ilk. On top of being on PS4, the game is out on PS Vita, for those of you who still have the handheld. There are a number of other titles out now, just like Stardew Valley. We have compiled a list of them here.
Stranded Sails – Explorers of the Cursed Islands launches for PlayStation 4 in October.
