Starsand Story and Gameplay

In Starsand, you are stranded alone in the middle of a desert because of a sandstorm. You do not recognise your surroundings and do not hope for help. The desert is full of life, but not all of it is friendly. You need to find a way out.

Starsand is an open-world survival-craft title. You are going to try and survive the unhospitable desert while building your base and exploring the world. With the remains of an ancient civilization scattered throughout it, there is a lot to explore.

Developers promise that the world of Starsand is larger than 64 square kilometres.

Starsand is currently in an early access state

After being released in early November 2021, Starsand is in early access on Steam and GOG. The reviews are mostly positive, but there are comments about bugs and the need for additional polish.

It is best to only purchase an early-access game if you are certain that you can enjoy it in its current state. There are videos of Starsand for you to enjoy and get a feeling of what Starsand has to offer.

That said, an open-world adventure game with survival and craft in a mysterious desert world is likely to attract a lot of fans of the genre.

The date for full release is not known yet.
