OverviewOverview

Raft is a survival game where you work to build a raft while stranded at sea. You start the game on a small raft with only a hook made of old plastic, with which you use to pull in floating barrels and planks of wood.

You scavenge the reefs beneath the waves and the islands above. But every action you do must be done with caution as the sea plays host to a number of man-eating sharks determined to end your voyage. You can also craft new survival equipment from the resources you find. Make weapons, crop plots and more to help you stay alive. Gather debris to repair and improve your raft and look out for land as you sail through the dangerous sea, with the option to play collaboratively with a friend online.

This game encourages clever and quick thinking and resource management, playing with a friend will require team work if you hope to be successful in the game.
