Raft is a challenging first person survival game in which you attempt to survive out at sea on a raft with only floating debris to build with and a troublesome shark to keep you company!
You start Raft with just a small raft made out of driftwood and a big hook on a rope. This hook isn’t used for catching fish, rather you use it to catch debris that floats by in the form of wood, thatch, scrap and barrels (you can also swim out and grab items but it’s best to stay on the raft where the shark can’t get you). All of these items are handy, but the barrels are especially good as they contain a selection of materials and can even contain seeds and food.
The materials you catch with your hook can be used to craft lots of items that are vital for your survival, such as a water purifiers, fishing rods and cooking stations. It can also be used to expand your raft, adding walls, windows and extra floors to your humble abode. With a bit of work your little ract can start to look like a big wooden house-boat – just make sure you keep an eye on that pesky shark, as it enjoys nothing more than chomping sections out of it!
Raft is still very early in development, but it shows a lot of promise and it can be a very satisfying experience eeking out an existence and building a massive floating home out of the little debris you come across at sea. A fun seafaring survival experience well worth dipping a toe into.
