[Update: Greenlit] Stuck In Greenlight Limbo: ‘Shipwreck’


This time the spotlight will be shining on Shipwreck, a stylish pixellated RPG clearly inspired by titles such as The Legend of Zelda. Let’s see if we can’t help it escape the cold emptiness of Greenlight limbo, eh?

Shipwreck is a top down adventure game in which you must travel the land, explore dungeons, and defeat monsters to earn safe passage off the island on which you are stranded.

On top of all that, it even has a female protagonist (which is apparently a rarity these days?). Right. Anyway, as an 80’s child, it goes without saying that this one’s right up my alley. Lovely pixellated visuals, old-school gameplay that seemingly mixes RPG and puzzle elements for a (potentially) grand adventure – checks off all the right boxes. Some of you may prefer a more ‘modern’ approach for entries in this particular genre, but as for me, I’d definitely rather kick it old-school with a game like Shipwreck than, say, The Witcher. If you’re anything like me in that area, do take it for a spin; worst case scenario, you’ll be out a buck! Oh and that music. Be sure to watch the entire trailer.

So riddle me this, dear reader: why is Shipwreck still struggling to get through Greenlight? It’s available from Desura and direct (via. Humble widget) for Windows, priced at $0.99, so it’s not like you’re voting on an unfinished project. As such, might I recommend visiting its Greenlight page and handing over a ‘yes’, if you like what you see? Remember: your vote matters!
