Oberhaching, May 19, 2021; Do you feel the unbridled heat on your skin, the wind-blown sand tearing at your face? Wherever you look, nothing but a vast desert, but wait, what is that – something is moving in the far distance. Where are you? What has happened?
Your day started as planned. The months of hard training should finally bear fruit. Motivated and full of ambition, you started the race of your life in the middle of the desert, surrounded by like-minded people who wanted to fulfil the dream of conquering the desert together with you and crossing the finish line with pride at the end of the Desert Race.
But now you are suddenly alone in an inhospitable, hot environment. Deserted and unforgiving, the hot dunes stretch to the horizon. What happened? Where are you?
These are just the first questions you’ll be seeking answers to in Tunnel Vision Studio’s new title – STARSAND. Toplitz Productions is pleased to publish the thrilling survival game and to collaborate with the developer to deliver an incredibly special game experience. More than just a survival sandbox, STARSAND offers a thrilling story, a world of secrets to uncover and a quest to find your way home. The desert is vast and inhospitable, but perhaps you’re not quite so alone after all?
About the game:
Starsand is a desert survival game set in a desert open world that looks like Earth but feels quite different. Dangers, mysteries, and puzzles await you! Find out what exactly happened, where you are and what connects you to the history of an extinct civilization. Will you manage to survive in this inhospitable environment, find answers and find your way back to your old life?
Find shade, find water, find life. Use your energy wisely, avoid too much effort in the heat, keep yourself warm through the coldest nights. You must keep your wits sharp to survive.
Hunt for food, make weapons, build a shelter, and secure it. The dunes are teeming with deadly creatures, familiar and otherwise.
In this desert you are both a hunter and prey. Insect-like predators come out of their dark nests, always looking for food. Protect yourself with fire, blow up enemies with explosive coconut grenades, secure your base and do whatever it takes to survive.
Find your way in the vast and lonely desert, orient yourself in sandstorms and mark your path. Thirst and heat become an invincible enemy during the day – cold endangers you during the night. Learn to live with adversity, see the beauty that the world holds, and learn from the animals and nature!
In short: EXPLORE, HUNT, BUILD … and SURVIVE!
