We all remember the movie “Cast Away.” Our dear friend Chuck Noland, sole survivor of a Fed Ex plane crash, washing up on the shores of an island where he struggles to survive while also going crazy to the point of befriending a soccer ball. Well, wouldn’t it be fun to do that in a video game too?

“Raft Survival: Ocean Nomad” sees you waking up in the ocean, with nothing but some wooden planks holding your body from sinking into the bottom of the ocean. With no land in sight and sharks circling around you, you must build a raft and survive. Eventually finding land, you must accumulate resources, craft survival tools and be on your way to more islands as you struggle to find home. The raft, which starts as a few wooden planks, can eventually be built up to be basically a floating home, with furniture, living spaces and more. And hey - if you never find home, you might as well float comfortably!

Armed with a grappling hook, a spear and more, you can pick up floating barrels and resources out of the water and fight off sharks that try and destroy your raft. To eat, you can fish off the raft to make a hearty meal. On the islands to which you sail, the dangers don’t vanish; they can be filled with poisonous spiders, giant crabs and more.

Floating around on a raft in the middle of the ocean might sound like a boring mundane thing, but with many quests and loads of room for exploration, “Raft Survival” is a game that will help you waste plenty of time.

“Raft Survival: Ocean Nomad” is free to download on the Android and IOS stores.
