In our never-ending search for indie gems, we came across Anchored from BadCharger (https://badcharger.itch.io/anchored), and here is what we found:
In Anchored you manage a settlement built on top of a floating island hovering above a dangerous jungle. But supplies are scarce up on the island, your settlers must venture down into the jungle to scavenge for food and resources in order to survive.
But you are not alone amongst the clouds… You must expand your settlement, upgrade your settlers and build your defenses in order to defend your island form the increasingly difficult nightly attacks.
Help your settlers fight starvation, expand and defend their island in this real-time-strategy survival game. Equip them with different gear and weapons, and combine their special abilities in order to form a combat effective group, to further increase your chances of surviving. How many nights can you survive..?
Unfortunately, it seems that anchored is discontinued as it was a part of a course of a group of studends fro the Uppsala University. The team is now scattered around different schools with new projects, and they are thus not able to continue development. However, the team recognized the feedback:
We are humbled by the amount of interest and positive feedback Anchored has gotten since we uploaded it and this makes us wish we were able to continue development. It is not impossible, however, that circumstances will allow us to finish Anchored in the future.
Let’s see if they can gather back and finish the game. It has some potential!
We did a quick Let’s Play on Anchored, and you can find it on our YouTube channel!
