After taking a week off, I have quite the backlog of shipwreck material to post. We’ll get to all of it in good time, but I couldn’t resist sharing this new shipwreck video game–The Island: Castaway. Developed by G5 Games, The Island is, according to this review, “an intense character driven game which… centers around a group of castaways who are shipwrecked on a deserted island after a tsunami overtakes the ship on which they are traveling.” There are shipwreck stories, “mini missions”and more. I only wish I had an appropriate mobile device or gaming system.
Long is the shadow of Robinson Crusoe and strong is the hold of shipwrecks on our collective consciousness.
