Starting Island

Hi @Baron and welcome to the forums! I hope you enjoy your time here! Sorry for the delay in getting your post approved, looks like automod grabbed it because you’re a fast typer :slight_smile:

The greatest part about permadeath on these types of games for me is how very rewarding eventual success can be. Eventual being the key word, lol. I have had several mishaps along the way. Lost a 53 day game to Lusca the Great, after I had already defeated The Meg, before co-op was introduced. The worst type of file loss can be caused by the slightest error. Once I was dipping in the water intermittently to avoid sunstroke, when I received a message about work and looked down at my phone for what seemed like only a few moments, only to look back up at a black screen. I managed to make a video clip so I could look back at what had happened, watched myself struggle for breath, and at the end saw “You survived 38 days. Died from drowning.” Thankfully, I have since learned to use Aloe Salve daily. Now I am on day 250, with only The Meg left to defeat before escaping.

Update: Meg defeated (in co-op with a reluctant friend of mine, lol) and escape successful. Almost…:slight_smile:

I must add too, that despite a few bug mishaps (interaction issue and toolbelt/inventory issue, when they were around) my save has never frozen and the entire game has run very smoothly for me overall on the Xbox Series X. 10/10 from this guy, for what that’s worth. Will continue to play for longevity and other record seeking opportunities. Also will be opening my game to public finally, lol.

Hi guys
my name is Nobby

I’ve been playing this game for a while now.
i love the game it is very relaxing after a hard day at work but it also gives me a lot of fun.

i like collecting and hunting and of course building and exploring.
I actually like everything in the game😊

i have been using this forum for a while now when i need a solution for an issue or for news about the game.

I am struggling with crashes so I decided to create an account and report what happened. I hope that the problems will be fixed soon and that the game will get even better and eventually as big as the pc version some day🥰

i wish everyone a lot of fun with the game and a good survival


@Nobby Sounds like we’re in the same boat! I really think this game has a TON of potential, fingers crossed the developers have the resources to grow this game into a masterpiece.


Hi @Nobby and @LilB13 - welcome to the forums!

I’m glad to hear you’re both enjoying the game and while I know the crashes are frustrating I really appreciate you both taking the time to share the details of your experiences on the forums!


G’day Survivors, newly marooned and still finding my feet but glad to see there’s a healthy snake population on the islands.

So far loving being stranded although some of the wildlife need to take a chill pill. Would be nice if they didn’t outright attach everytime, would make it a wee bit more realistic. Would love to swim with the sharks with the risk they may attack rather than will attack.

Avoiding tips & guides and enjoying this approach. Hopefully I’ll not die to a rogue coconut as I’m in no rush to escape.

Hi Tartansnake, welcome to the forums :slight_smile:

I’m glad to hear you’re enjoying Stranded Deep and appreciate your feedback on wildlife behaviour in the game.

I wish you all the best in your adventure as you discover more and progress in the game!
