Armed with foreknowledge of planting and a little elbow grease, your job is to help them make this dream come true.
  • In the Military Outpost scenario, a team of scientists, adventurers, and soldier’s touchdown on a new world to set up a new communications relay. They are surrounded by danger on all sides as their work attracts dangerous wildlife that will need to be defended against.

Whichever scenario you choose, your journey will be impacted by several factors, chief among them the survivors themselves. You'll have a wide variety of characters to choose from, each with unique backstories, skills, and traits determining their strengths and weaknesses. The environment, whether they land on the lush and temperate Sobrius, or the arid and scorching Desertum, will also present its own set of challenges, necessitating wildly different decisions and reactions to what happens. You can further tweak your gameplay experience by choosing from a variety of Moons, Difficulties, and Game Rules.

Your survivors are the heart and soul of Stranded: Alien Dawn. You'll have to ensure their physical and mental wellbeing by providing them with food, weapons, clothing, medicine, and some much-needed rest and relaxation. Every survivor has a unique backstory, varying levels of skill proficiency, and both positive and negative traits. Your survivors' story through Stranded: Alien Dawn will be driven by unique events, alien wildlife threats, adverse weather, and the decisions you make along the way.
