Stranded Sails – Explorers of the Cursed Islands – Ver. ???

  • Release date: October 25th 2019 (North America, Europe)
  • Patch notes:


  • Added a buff that removes the energy cost of walking and reduces the energy cost of sprinting while it is active. This buff is only active during the day and ends at night.
  • Increased sprint speed.


  • Manual save game bug fix where it caused items to disappear and corrupt save data. If you have found this issue you will unfortunately have to start the game from the beginning with this new patch.
  • Rebalanced energy cost of many actions to compensate for the now “free” walking (with buff). There’s been an increase of energy cost for rowing on low to medium waves (make sure you brings lots of food!)
